    Can’t beat a memory like that for anything. Congrats.

    Congrats on the buck, but condolences on losing your dad. My favorite part of punching a tag is calling my dad to help drag, even when I don’t really need the help. Glad you were able to share that with your dad too, albeit too short.

    Memories we hold on tight. Until we meet them again.

    @Jeff Thank you, I appreciate it.

  • Miles's avatar

    @Mike He was always the first call on the radio. His response every time was “Did ya hit him good?” Lol, I miss that call. I miss that drag.

    I know what you feel like, I shot a buck with my dad's gun the season after he passed away just because he always wanted an 8 point to mount and had it mounted as a memorial to him, it's the smallest deer I have mounted but is worth more than all the others put together.

    Great post and a great reminder to all of us. As my Dad and I grow older I realize every season and every hunt shared is blessing.

  • Miles's avatar

    @Brad Absolutely, cherish while you can. Memories are great, but the present is better. 👊🏼

    Thanks for sharing your story. Sorry for your loss.

    Love that mount too. Might have to steal the idea for a future buck.

  • Miles's avatar

    @Jeremiah Have at it. I built the frame and handed it over to my taxidermist for the rest. Super easy to do 🤙🏼

    That's awesome! I sure miss getting to hunt with my Daddy, but I know I'll see him again in Heaven. Sure wish he was here, and especially during deer season.

    A really good post miles, good to read, it’s always good to see and hear an outlook on hunting that’s about family and the positive emotive response, wish there was more like it. Sorry for your loss fella, hope your doin ok, safe to say you made him a happy and proud that day man. Definitely a memory to hold onto. One that will make you smile
