My Old Man Still Gettin' it Done

Yeah, yeah, I know, it's with a gun, but you guys know me, those over in the gun forum, not so much. At any rate, my Dad's 92 and I'm pretty proud of him.

Awesome!  I hope I can still be doing it when I'm even close to his age.  Good for him!

Donbo,

years ago he was proud of you when you killed a deer and it's funny how the tables turn.  Good for you and your dad, making memories!!!   Are you sure you're his son???  For heavens sake he may be a bit older but he's blessed you with his rugged good looks.

Don, it's this old news? Doesn't Dad get one just about every year? :-)

Way to go Pa Donbo!  Keep them rolling! I hope to see many more of these!  Turkey season is just around the corner, so hope to see him with another nice long beard!

Nope, he's been filling his turkey tag every year, but this is his first deer in a long time.

NBK- Natural Born Killer.

also, seems he's showing off his wedding ring like a newly proposed to fiance?  Hope mom's still with him?

Yep, mom's still around. Pretty proud of her too. At age 71, she shot the biggest buck in camp, WITH HER BOW!  Sadly a shoulder injury caused her to quit hunting soon after that.

 

Thanks for all the kind words everyone.

i think he's proposing to sausage snacks, "With this ring I commit you to sausage, and a roast"

Huum, maybe it was a Turkey post that I remember from last year? Hope he still gets a little Deer fever before pulling the trigger!

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
