I started posting on this site a long time ago. Not many people left here from when I started but some of you have seen my son grow up so I thought I would share.

I started taking josh hunting when he was 4. First hunt I took him on was at Wister. I still remember it. We took 115A-1. Not a hot blind and now I think it might be choked out with Tulies but on this day it was great. My son and I have had some great hunts. Memories that will last a lifetime. Duck hunting is a past time that I shared with my dad and uncle that they shared with there dad and so on. It’s something very special to me. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Saturday we hunted in his last hunt as a junior and we had a blast. He shot his final limit as a junior.

some of the fondest memories  I have with my kids were down at the sea, thanks for reminding me 

it is my intent to do what is best for TOF, my bed side manners suck and for that I am sorry.
I am blunt and to the point and I do not have the ability to sugar coat it to save your fillings, So really if I tell you stop pissing on the carpet, just knock it off, man up and don't puff up carry on like soap opera. the rules here are really light so man up.

Some have asked way do you put up with all the crap some put me through. and this is it
I am tired of big business just taking form us outdoorsmen. most of the product is defective and does not work as stated. bottom line if there product sucks I want ever outdoorsmen to know about.

All I ask is support those that support you, this place is about real unpaid information, its real outdoorsmen not paid to say something outdoorsmen.........

Damn Landon. You almost got me choked up on that one.

My oldest just turned 4. He got to do his first Turkey hunt last year at 3. It was awesome.

I took my son to the youth hunts at San Jac. We had such great times and the crew there really made it special. My son is 21 now and we still get after them together. I cherish those memories the most! Great job!

Thanks for sharing. Nothing better.  Not too many sports or hobbies will actually make a dad put together a photo journal of their kid from 4 to 18 and show everybody that he knows and others that share the same passion.  Hunting.  Hunting with your kids, especially.   I'm not sending out photo journals of my daughter playing softball. But, I can tell you I have every photo cataloged by year of every hunt that I have done with my daughters.  Hunting is the greatest pastime that you can share with your kids.  You are a great dad.  Your kid has grown into a studly man.  Time flys.

I saw a lynx at Tejon.
