This is more of a thank you letter than a post, so lets get that clear from the get go. This weeks episode got to me for some reason. I've been following this show for several years now and Clinton, you have always been one of my favorites. You have a ton of knowledge about what we all love to do, you film monster bucks every single year, your a grateful killer of the majestic whitetail, and this year you have let a whole community of like minded peers into your personal life when life handed you a really devastating situation. It would not be possible for me to comprehend the roller coaster of emotions that you have ridden over the past several months, but I can tell you, that on film you have put your best foot forward and have earned about as much respect that I could hold for someone. This all brings me to today's show. First off, thank you Ty for your service and doing what you do on a daily basis so that I can do the things that I love. Again, you have earned as much respect as I can give. Back to Clinton, the amount of work that you put in is evident when we watch these shows, and I know that this is only the tip of the iceberg when compared to all the steps that must be taken to keep deer of this caliber on your farm. To watch you rattle in Cal Ripken then watch as that world class 8 pointer struts across the food plot that you planted and cared for and to then find out that you "lied" to Ty so that he was comfortable letting that arrow fly is really a testament to the kind of hunter and sportsman you really are. The explanation you gave your brother as to why it was ok for him to shoot that deer after he found out that it was Cal is what being a family and sharing quality time with one another in the deer woods is all about. This portion of the episode made me proud to be a bowhunter because I know several gentlemen that would be willing to do the same. I've met a lot of folks over the years in all different aspects and walks of life, and when I sit down and reflect on the people I've met...most of my favorites are people I've met through hunting and spent time with in the woods. So thanks, Clinton, for bringing us a high quality video to enjoy, as well as being a high quality person. You sir are what I strive to be in a sportsman and a hunter and I hope that others watching this episode feel the same way I do. Watching Cal Ripken fall is the end of this story, but I know that there are many more chapters in your book and I look forward to you sharing them with the BHOD community. Congratulations to both Clinton and Ty, this was my favorite episode yet!
