    Great read! Thanks for taking the time to share, unfortunate trail of events for sure but I love how the story went full circle. I am in a similar, although not as tragic, situation with my father..... I have no problem saying reading your post made me a bit misty. Congrats to your father, enjoy your time with him and have a great fall!

    Thanks for sharing. The bond of hunting between father and son is an amazing thing. I love hunting with my dad and want to pass that along to any future sons I have.
