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.

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!

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
