Way Back in the Day I had a Friend Don Jones We Called him Sheriff Jones of Hancock country. He was truly OLD SCHOOL an came from a Time when Deer hunting was Second Nature to Most Men of his Age. He shot a old 30 06 and Shot Off Hand, for you Youngens out there it means just pointing the gun at the Deer. I Miss all these Older Guys because they Knew everything about Hunting and the Woods. My Wife asked Me Long ago why did I hang around with these Men, I told her I wanted to learn everything I could from them. I have a picture from Don’s Backyard this is a Deer that he killed behind his House. He was getting ready to go to Deer Camp and Saw this Deer RUNNING FAST in his Back Woods, so he walked Slowly back Until he got A clear Shot. These Men are Gone But Not Ever Forgotten.

Some of the Best times are with Friends and Family and the times spent in the GREAT Outdoors, Memories that will last a Lifetime! It doesn’t get any BETTER THAN THAT.

Thanks for the reminder that the outdoor life is about friendship and comraderie. It seems, sometimes, from the outdoor mags that its all about gear and technique. The shared experience of the hunt gets lost in debates about the perfect caliber or the absolute high tech scope. In concentrating on the HOW, the WHY gets forgotten. The solitary hunt has its place but can’t compare with time in the deer camp with good friends.
