Default Lost my Grandparents

Past couple of days have been very tough. I received a call last Thursday that there was a tragic fire at my grandparents farm house in Missouri & neither of them made it out.

These two taught me everything I know about the woods & even more about life. I've hunted with them every season for the past twenty years. It wasn't always about the hunt, but rather the stories around the camp fire with a cold Dr. Pepper, that eventually graduated to a cold Budweiser once I was 18.

Every time I'd leave South Texas during deer season I would call my grandfather to go over the weekend & discuss what lessons could be learned. The depth of knowledge he passed onto me is unparalleled & I'm forever grateful to have had such wonderful people show me the outdoors.

It will be tough to see the house, as I've been told there's nothing left except the chimney. Though not the memories, all the mounts, antlers, photos & guns are gone. If anyone hears of a Savage Model 99 .308 that's for sale, please let me know.

I posted a link below to the report of the 8 point I shot up there last year & also attached a photo of my grandfather & I with that mount just 7 weeks ago.

I'll miss them dearly.

Brother, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Our home burnt down in the 3rd grade...some of the sights I can recall, but it's mostly that smell that has been stamped my mind forever. Every several years I'll catch it in the air & it whirls up those really old feelings / memories in a bizarre way.

God Bless
