Thumbs up Dad hit the lotto

My dad called me today and asked if I wanted to go on a south Texas trophy hunt. I replied when, where and how much! He proceeded to tell me that he had just received a call from TPWD stating that he won the Premium Deer Hunt through the draw system! I couldn’t believe it, he puts in every year, but never expected to win one. I get to go as his guest, it will be on the Caiman ranch in December. I am extremely excited for him, he has hunted his entire life, and never killed a true trophy deer. At 78, he doesn’t have a lot of quality hunting years left, so we’ll make this one the most special hunt possible. Supposed to be getting a letter soon stating the Hunt specifics, can’t wait!

I can't wait until he gets the letter laying out the hunt specifics, to see what all is included. He was so excited, he didn't get much info that the guy told him over the phone. I will definitely do a live hunt, and I will be videoing as much of it as I can. He has been my number one hunting buddy my entire life, I can't wait to get to spend this time with him. My son, who just got his first ever kill and first bow kill this year wanted to go also, but we can't take him along. Maybe one day he or I will win something like this, and we can share it also. This year is turning out to be an epic hunting season, I hope that continues into next year!
