Embrace that!
Not only in the field but at home as well. In the room where I have my guns, reloading gear and computer I keep an empty chair and I sometimes feel like he's sitting there just like before. I don't say anything to anybody about it but I guess nobody would have any idea what I mean unless they've lost someone very special.

Look around. You've got years of info that you could pass along. Good Luck.
I've outlived all of my hunting buddies now and my only grandson is only interested in sports and electronics. We'll see what happens between now and next summer. I'd hate to eventually just sell everything and not be able to pass something along to a new hunter. We'll see.

Dick, I think Gene would be so proud of the things that you are saying.
You will be allright. Keep the faith...pass it on.
Good Luck

You were a Lucky Man to have such a wonderful friend for so long.
I know what you're saying and realize that he'd want me to keep hunting but I don't know if it's that easy.

When I was 1 year old I had my picture taken with a huge 6 point bull elk that my dad had just shot. That was how I got started and it was all I knew each fall and winter from then on. Problem is that now I'm in some new territory and don't know what the outcome will be.

I was verrrry lucky and always knew that but now know, I guess, with age comes a little extra understanding about life and people. Like they say hindsight is 20/20 but you sometimes don't see that good until it's too late.

Re: Recently lost my lifelong best friend and hunting partner.

So sorry to hear about the passing of your long-time friend, Dick.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and your friend's family...

Jon
