Default Doc's Last Ride!

Well, it's about that time. Tomorrow I will be taking the future wife and future stepson on their first deer hunt. I haven't said a lot about it on here but its been coming. Her son is a great kid and 12 years old. When I got home from the BC stone sheep hunt I took him to pick out and design his mother's engagement ring and daily wear band. That should be ready here in the next 5-6 weeks. We have the Ten Point Carbon RDX crossbow dialed in and I ran to Mason before my Arizona elk hunt and got 8 spots setup just for the crossbow crew. I have 6 cameras out and will check them after the morning hunt Saturday. Pulling Jr out of school at noon tomorrow and making the drive. My buddies son is the center for Mason so we are going to catch the game. Should be a great weekend and I pray I start an addiction in my new family. I will try like heck to post it all up. Life is going to change but its time. I hope the world is big enough for two DocMays!!!!!!!!!!

I know I hunt year round but to me opening day is always the start and about new beginnings. Never been more true. Can't wait to take everyone along on this one. And don't worry, she supports my hunting and I have lots coming up. She is even planning on tagging along for the Carmen Island Desert Sheep hunt.

Sounds fun, look forward to the gear pics and story. After all, I got started hunting with my dad and say hunting with him are some of the best memories in my life to date.

It sounds like you're doing it right with the stepson. I'm sure it'll get rocky at times, but I'll be praying for you and your new family as y'all figure it all out.

Mama bear and baby bear!



Jr. in his gear. Hoyt excited about tracking. They are inseparable!





Got most of the stuff ready last night night! One thing I hate is running out of ammo. Pretty sure that won't happen.

I let Jr pick his broadhead from a bunch I had at home plus we bought some mechanicals. He liked the G5 strykers so they are loaded for hunting the double Bulls. I have some other bolts with rages and killzone maxx. Something is gonna die. We are mld on the lease so bring the 10mm for tracking and I'll have the defiant along in case it's needed. I think I'm more excited and nervous than the shooters! On call tonight. Already delivered 2, 2 more in labor, just sent in a set of twins, and a quick surgery in the am. I'm ready to go.

She knows it's coming but not when. Her request was to keep her son involved. He has been there every step. He went and helped picked the diamond even down to rejecting the stone someone I trust had picked. He said "it has a yellow color out here in the sun." My plan is to get it done before I leave for my Alaska bday trip. I think I leave November 10th or 11th. She has no clue what the ring looks like. It's been custom made from the beginning. It's being done in true docmay fashion I promise.

Star s is a few weeks away but Eric has sent a few pics. Future wife says one of these two is hers!!!!!! Pretty sure I can get them hooked. We have discussed building a house with a trophy building of some sort. Pretty sure I'll need it.
