      Thank you note   08/24/2017

      I receive this thank you note from Peggy Warden  Mr. Stadler,  I didn’t post this under announcements, but you can if you want.  Thank you very much for sending the card, money and letting the members know about Chris’s death.  The members on Hagshouse are a special group of guys.  I knew that you all have really big hearts from past experiences when I was helping with charity auctions, etc. But I didn’t know what to say when I got a card with a $500.00 check because Chris had been inactive for a good while now.  Thank you all for the money and the kind words that were written about him on the website.  It was a great comfort for our family to read through each post.  It is just amazing that guys, most of whom I have never met in person, hundreds of miles away, reach out to help with prayers and money.  Chris and I were very thankful for being able to have come to know allot of you through e-mail and phone conversations, being part of your website and running the store.  Life without Chris is the hardest thing in life that I have ever had to do, but it sure does make it easier to bear with friends like you.  There has got to be a big meeting place reserved up in heaven where all the Hagshouse guys get together.  God bless you all!  Sincerely, Peggy Warden P.S.  Chris had signed me up with the Hagshouse member name of “Methuselah”.  As some of you may know, Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible.  Lol!  He did have a sense of humor.

Any Bear expers here??

3 posts in this topic

I pulled an s40 today and had a black bear close-up . He (or she) appears to have 6 claws on her right front paw. Is this normal? I thought they were supposed to have 5 pads and 5 claws.

Hi zaj, nice photo! Yes they are supposed to have five toes. If it is indeed an extra toe or nail, then it is a mutation. I am no bear expert, so I don't know the prevalence of such mutations in bear populations.. However, you can notice the coloration of the extra nail is off compared to the other nails. This may be an indication that it is something else, perhaps a splinter or a scar?
