Lost my brother, my hunting and fishing partner
 
He and I started bowhunting in 1968. We'd go every weekend in October.

We hardly killed anything, but the romance of it all made it worth it.
Had many encounters but no blood was usually drawn.
Finally killed a few doe and a couple of small basket racks....and couldn't have been happier.

Days were before real climbing stands; we used blocks of 2X4's nailed to the tree trunks and stood on limbs. We had a plot of COE's land practically to ourselves for years.

Sometimes we'd hunt close to one another and use crow calls for simple communication.

Anyway, lots of memories floating thru the head right now.

We haven't hunted together in many, many years but it seems just like yesterday.

Enjoy you time outdoors with friends and family....you never know when it might end.

Lost my younger brother 19 yrs ago to the day. I know the feeling all too well.
Looking at his tombstone earlier, and the picture on it, of him with the last buck he ever shot. Brought back a lot of tears and memories.
I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Sorry brother.

Lost my older brother back in October. Spent a lot of hours hunting and fishing with him when i was young. Still when I see a great deer or get one on camera I think I'm going to send him a picture. Went fishing last week and he always knew where the fish were so that was different too. Remember the good times and cherish every moment. At least my brother saw his grandson born a week before he passed with a heart attack working in his garden which he loved doing. His daughter is having a really tough time and could use some prayers. I know it's tough losing a brother prayers for you and remember the good times y'all had. Praying for comfort and peace for you.

Very sorry for your loss. I very rarely have nightmares, and as weird as it sounds, some of the worst have been about losing my brother. We're in our early 30s, but it is a bond that is so common and yet so unique that I hope we have many more years left to go. God bless you and yours.

To me bowhunting has always been about relationships. It sounds like you and your brother had a great one! I love the reminders of those early awkward hunts, sitting on limbs etc. Those "basket racks" were some amazing trophies for sure!!! I pray blessings upon your family

Ellen 04-08-2019 06:46 AM

My condolences. I am so sorry for the loss of your brother.

rtjh 04-08-2019 07:16 AM

Sorry to hear. My dad died a few weeks ago and I feel close to him whenever I'm out in the woods or at our hunting camp. The time we spent hunting together was priceless.

CoolArrow 04-08-2019 07:19 AM

So nice to hear about close family members hunting, fishing, and just hanging out. That's how it should be. Treasure them while you have them and let them know you love'em. Sorry for your loss, prayers up.

So sorry to hear that you lost your brother. I too lost mine some years ago. Like you, we hunted and fished together every chance we got. I pray that God allows your brother to be with you in spirit every time you go to the woods or to the water.
