Re: Dad\'s first elk

Too cool Shawn !

I reckon if my Dad was still around I would be trying to get him into longrange shooting as he was a good hunter and liked his rifles.

Mighty proud for your dad and you , thanks for the story and pix .

    Glad to hear of a success. There's nothing like giving a little back to parents after all they've done for you. Makes a guy feel pretty good.

    Shawn, great hunt for you and your dad,
    Every hunt you spend together is most precious. (any time for that matter) I remembered seems like yesterday my Dad
    was taking me and my 3 brothers hunting, he would take us out of school for a week every year from age 12 to 18
    on a carpenters pay that was not the easiest thing to do, mom did not like it but he would say!what are they going to remember more? He was right. We all went together for many years till age started taking a toll.
    The hunts I have been on with my Dad and brothers are often will bring a tear as I know it will never be like it was as my dad has
    givin it up, Thanks sharing the time you spent with your Dad with us.
    The best things in life cannot be seen or touched!
    They must be felt with the heart.

    Way to go Dad....Great job Shawn. My dad is starting to get into the longrange hunting now with me. Although he has alot of experience, this is something new to him. He is like a 62 year old kid. That SMK did put a huge hole in that elk. Again, great job.
