Default Garguy And The Geezer LIVE

Gonna give this a whirl this afternoon with Dad. Since his bout with covid he has not hunted yet this year. I have been staying with them helping care for Mom for several days. It's been a very difficult time for Dad. They have been married 60 years and watching her teeter on the edge of death has taken an emotional toll on him.

While she is not out of the woods , she seems to to be showing some progress. This evening I have someone to sit with her while I take Dad to the woods. I have a really old 8pt coming fairly regular. He wont score a lot but he is wide and long beams.

Let's hope he can get it done. I should have service. Same stand I did my only live thread from a couple weeks ago. I'll update we get in. The plan is to get on stand by 2. The old deer was there off and on all day yesterday.

You are a blessing brother for sure. Hopefully this will encourage him and you as you both deal with the trials that life sometimes throws at us. Still praying for mom as she continues her recovery.

We are set. 51 degrees and dad is dressed for the polar express. Wind perfect but on our way in we noticed that a neighbor had silhouette targets set up all the way to my fence. Not sure how many rifle shots he fired here today but that could hurt us. I'll update as it unfolds.
