    I paid for that easy one with this one, Hobie. 5 hours Thursday, until dark, then 3 hours Friday morning. Shaking it out of one tree 25 feet up, just to watch it land in another 25 feet up. Finally got it down to about 12 feet and set the box on the truck. Shook them off onto the telescoping lid and dumped them.

    Believe me, by the time that 8 hours was up, I was ready for the shotgun. I just didn't have one with me.
