Hey JTR, I'm still here. I've been extremely busy with my wife finishing up her school this year. She'll graduate May 16th with her Nuclear Med Degree. It's been 6 long years without her income and times are hard but God is good. I'm so proud of her.
Things haven't been quite the same since Jeffrey Smith aka Creek passed away in December. I even put my bow and gun down on November 25th as things were getting worse for Creek. We were very close and it kind of took the wind out of my sails, so to speak. Duplin County Bowhunter and I carried his casket, he was decked out in his camo. I even made a couple of Turkey calls over his grave after people left. He loved nothing more than to hear those thunder chickens gobbling as the sun came up. Sure do miss him.
Hope you are doing well, and the family! I'm gonna try to bag a bird Tomorrow on the Roan Island State lands. I lucked out and got a draw for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
I see the post on here all the time. GT is still around as well. I get a text from him from time to time. It's just a little hard for all of us! 43 years young.
