Default Dad turns 90 tomorrow

My dad will have his 90th birthday tomorrow. We had a get together yesterday on Lake Conroe to celebrate. I have posted hunting pics of him over the years and he has a trip to a ranch with my brother this year. The owner said he has never had anyone that age shoot one and hopes my dad will be the first. We are blessed to still have him with us and in relatively good health for his age.

















My dad, daughter and myself.

What a blessing! My dad is 91 and up until recently was independent and in great shape. Like your dad, he's a proud USN man. Much to be thankful for in those pictures, brother!

Thank you Bill for sharing a positive thread on TBH. We need more of them around here to offset all the negative.


Happy Birthday to him! He looks a lot better than several 60 year olds I know. What is he hunting at this ranch with your brother??

Happy to share the positive news, Jason. Whitetail if in the fall but some type of exotic if prior to that. He will be shooting the trusty Savage Mod 99 as always. Still not ready to turn it over to me yet.

Happy Birthday to that fine gentleman.
He looks 10-12 years younger than he is and that smile is worth a million bucks.
God bless him and the family.

Not only great genetics but great taste. My FIL is 90 and passed a Model 99 to me a few years back. Those little guns are tack drivers.

His dad gave it to him back in the late 60s and he will pass it to me.
