Default This weekend is for Dad

Before my Dad passed in February, we had some really good and deep conversations. The past few years of his life he was unable to get to go bow hunting due to strength and mobility. Itís what he missed the most.

It was his wish to be cremated and he told me exactly where to put some of his ashes. He said heíd like me to put a small amount of his ashes in my hunting arrows and ďstick something with emĒ.

This weekend I will carry out his wishes and put those ashes exactly where he told me and with a little luck and him smiling down on me, Iíll let one of these arrows fly.
