Funny as it is, that pic actually broght back a memory. Once as a child I actually touched a cotton tail rabbit that refused to move. It was an adult, not a baby and I guess he thought he was hidden.
I reached out, touched him and he did sort of a back flip and took off.
Probably couldn't do it again if I had to.

Great thread! I can't find the pic so I just called my brother to see if he has it and can send it to me. There's a pic of me in a muddy cart, dove hunting with my brother right before he left for Nam. 1967, I was 3

That's me on the far right , who gave me the trucker hat? , I see I'm wearing the same camo patten as someone else on this thread. This was my first year deer hunting alone, I think I was about 13. It was 7th or 8th grade. Good times.

First one is on the way to our old duck lease in pecan island, la.

Second is driving my dads old 16' Boston whaler circa 1988, hands down best boat we ever owned. He just sold it last year, everything was working, including the speedometer!

Lastly, one of my favorite childhood pics. My dad on the right, his best friend and in my eyes, the absolute authority on all things hunting and fishing, Keith "Rambo" Roberts, on the left, and myself in the middle. Showing off our catch from a day in the atchafalaya basin. These two are solely responsible for my lifelong addiction to the outdoors.

I'll ask my Dad to send a copy. He has it on his desk. Took me fishing on the WI opener 2 weeks before I turned one. Fished from shore in one of those kid backpack deal (1979). Still love fishing and hunting with him, just wish he wasnt 1200 miles away....I went on every opening day with him until I left for the Army, it was always his birthday weekend.

i can still remember when this picture was taken. Either in 87' or 88'

anyway, my parents used to vacation down in rockport, when it was a little fishing villiage. Out of the back of the motel, was a canal, was a good spot for catching reds and flounder. My dad would always bait me with a popping cork and dead shrimp and I'd catch alot of rat reds and pin fish.

I remember catching this needlefish and not knowing what it was, but apparently I thought it was cool.
