Thanks for the off season story, makes me willing to go outside and shoot even if I would rather be warm and dry.

Thanks for sharing, wish I could have met him. I agree with everyone else, you really should write a book.

Barry, great story!  Do you think Greg got his hunting skills from his mother's side of the family?

Barry:
Nicely done!

I notice that the people that knew Paul, say
"I really miss that man".

He had a tremendous impact.  I wish I had the chance to meet him.

Please: More memories!

Dad....is that you? You don't need to take me hunting, but you do owe me and my momma a lot of back child support. Don't listen to Leffler, they only made him head doctor because he kept cutting himself with his scalpel!
