      See what pics you can find of some early hunting days of yours. Standing by the tree, that was my first bow buck in ’78. Maybe 80 lbs soaking wet, but I was ecstatic that I’d actually gotten a deer! My 70’s hair is evident too:). The other I think I was 27 and we’d hiked several miles into the Adirondacks for a hunt. I’ll be 54 soon, so that was another lifetime ago, and I know some of the graybeards around here beat that with a stick:lol: Show ’em if you got ’em! Looks like I may have to post the pics in seperate posts….stay tuned..

      Here’s the 2nd pic I mentioned up there. Guess both pics were too large a file size to post at once.

      a long time ago……..my first bow kill……..ruined my life….:roll::lol: turned me into a stick and string hunter for ever…….made me a big buck addict. took another five years before i killed another deer with a bow……that was a good buck ….three yards on the ground……it really took that long for me to realize that killing a doe was part of the program and to formulate the addiction to big whitetail hunting but that it really wasn’t about killing…..but about the journey…..up close and personal. that first one….was 152 and change….field dressed 222……taken over a scrape.

      that was a day………went with my best bud…..[ even to this day and i started with him when he was 12 yrs of age. ]……anyway…….we limited out that morn on geese……..limited out on stripers by midday…..went deer hunting that afternoon……one of those ” once in a lifetime ” days.

      1994 whitetail buck. Last year hunting there before I moved to Colorado. Me and Good friend Gil Deel, on left tracked it in the morning after an evening liver hit. I tried tracking that night but I kept pushing it in front of me.

      Keep them coming! Here’s a 70’s era tree stand I built. I had to strike a pose you know, because my girlfriend at the time took the pic. Wish I was 18 again, but with a few more brains than I had then:lol:

      the only bear i’ve ever hunted…….idaho. i was showing a new guide our country and as the shadows started down the draws, i rode down into the junction lake tie up area…….the new guy asked me why because he was hungry and wanted back to the cook tent. told him i was going to kill a bear and after i tied up and pulled the glasses i could see one working berries halfway up the back side of the lake. so i told the new guy to hide and watch and as the wind had started down the slope i went up after him…….shot him at twelve yards on the ground. really have no desire to kill another one as he was p&y even though i never put him in the book………made the new guy cape him out as i watched. well…..i had to see if he knew what he was doing. he did a great job by the way.

      ok…..i’m done. someone else needs to jump in here with images.
