Very good observations. My one year old is jabbering away at the screen right now so you've managed to appeal to all age groups :)

I like him - he's cute and rugged all at once.
Also, your mind is a scary, scary place.

LOL! The detail on this is awesome. Love the fringe on his mountaineering getup. I wonder how well he shoots that rifle whilst steading himself on his walking stick. LOL!

Wow. All this time I've been looking for the wrong thing on my hunts for deadly prey. From now on I'll be more weary of mountain men with tails. Great design, by the way.

So what you're saying is... if a guy walks up to you in the mountains and says he knows the best hunting spots and to follow him-- and he has a tail-- shoot him, right?

Hilarious!
