Seems that the Blessings that Started with Elkatraz and get togethers continue to keep rolling through our ranks. Reading about RL's gift to Paul/to Norm, the africa hunt through the stories of the three musketeers, and about the hardships and rewards of the bear hunting trio just seem to keep me glued to the computer sceen to see who gets Blessed next. Didn't figure it would be me until the phone rang last night. It was My taxidermist telling me that some friends were ready for pick-up. We had dropped off Will's & Seth's buck from rifle season along with the yote I nailed as it was trailing a doe. On a handshake,Huck had traded a hunt in CO to Chris in exchange for mounting the 2 bucks. Today I picked em up and Chris handed me my finished yote pelt, smiled and refused the $125 to pay for it. He grinned and said if Will could Bless Seth, then the pelt was His gift to me....on the condition I buy him supper next fall in CO !!! God is so cool. LOL...ya see,yesterday my daughter's radiator went south on her 17 year old Honda that she drives 70 miles round trip to college each day and Old dad decided to help out by picking up a new one and installing it for her....wanna guess how much it was ;) ...CAN'T wait to see how E3 goes!!!!!
* the first 3 are Huck's Amen Buck...notice the character points, last one is Seth's.
Chris said he has never seen bucks with amount of battle scars on their hides as the last 3 we've taken him. You can see some of the evidence on Will's buck and he reattached the left eyelid that had been almost ripped off in fights.
Hopefully Judd can post the pics so Will can see his trophy since we're working on a way to get to CO from PA.
