rantingredneck, good write-up; thanks! I enjoy reading the stories as much as seeing the pictures. The stuff about your FIL adds good color, too. Congratulations on a successful hunt!
Thanks Legionnaire. My FIL has been my hunting companion for the past 15+ years. In the last few seasons we've had some health setbacks right when the season started that we had to struggle through but we made it. 5 years ago he had a quadruple bypass at Thanksgiving and I had him back out in the woods before Christmas. Four years ago I had a treestand accident the 2nd weekend of bow season, broke my back, he had me back out 6 weeks later. This year he broke his arm 4 days after bow season started and I got him back out there by muzzleloader. I hope next year isn't my turn again.........
