when i was young we duck hunted alot,i mean every chance we could get we were on the river or big water.mom said he would go too far, letting me take up to a week off from school at a time so i could hunt every morning with him whenever he was on vacation from work.i loved it .we squirrel hunted alot,whitetail deer hunted,and did alot of varmint hunting together.if i was able to go groundhog hunting on a regular basis for the rest of my life i don't think i could match the number of whistle pigs dad bagged in his day.he also went on a few elk hunts in colorado,something i never got to try.dad also bagged quite a few turkey's in his hunting days. i remember back when i still lived at home with mom and dad he would practice for hours on an old slate call.it drove mom nuts.there never was any bad times between me and my pop,we always got along great and and he even put up with me when i quit smoking.(i was really irritable and mean during the process). the family is taking it pretty hard,his showing is today and his military service is tomarrow morning. dad requested to be cremated and his ashes spread on his favorite hunting grounds in southern ohio.
