My 89 y/o father, who in our hunting group, was known as "Deadeye" for obvious reasons died on Sunday morning. He loved to hunt and was looking forward to PA's bear season. The photo shows the scene when I went to his basement the morning after. His Mdl 722 Rem in .300 Sav w/ Redfield Widefield, ammo, knife, and radio were all ready to go. Please say a prayer for my Mom if you would please.

My condolences to your family, especially to your mother and you. It sucks to lose a parent and to make sure that the other parent is doing okay. It sounds like your father lived a great life, especially when he was bear hunting at 89, and he knew what he loved in life. Prayers to you and your family!

My condolences to you, your mom and the rest of your family. Losing one’s parent is a difficult thing to get through. Remember him often by recounting his hunting tales to his grandchildren.

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve
