Unhappy Jim Shockeys "Father In Law" passed away!!!

Len passed away per the Outdoor Channel! The show "Hal & Len" was outstanding for a GREAT laugh. Really kewl that Jim Shockey recognized the camaraderie between his dad and father in law. Prayers for the Shockey Family as it was obvious they were very close.

That's sad to hear. By far one of my favorite episodes on TV. Funny as all get out.

I have been told that those two old men were a "hoot" at the SCI convention as folks always wanted their autographs/picture!

lol! Jim spends VERY little time in a blind. I would love to hunt with him or his staff on any of those high adventure hunts.

Those two guys were funny to watch. They were definitely meat hunters but did the horns grow after the kill.
