    Default A hunter is born....

    I just realized I never posted this picture. My youngest boy completed his hunter ed this year and I promised him a squirrel hunt. The pic is pretty bad as I had a smudge unknown to me on the lens of my iPhone. Justin used my dad's .410 gauge Savage single shot that he got around the same age. I'd like to think somewhere in heaven my dad was looking down smiling.

    This squirrel was taken just a few hundred yards from my first archery bull elk. When we first got to the woods that evening after driving up from Phoenix, we spotted a pretty big flock of turkeys. The birds I'm sure knew we were there but we got to play with them a little sneaking in on them a couple of different times. We also numerous elk on this trip with one giant bull included.....the boy is hooked!

    Like that was not a foregone conclusion.

    Good to see.
