Sorry... not critter genetics - human. I am hoping I can do what my father is doing at 89. He has a few medical issues and just keeps plugging along. He introduced me to hunting when I was a pup. I introduced him to bow hunting when he was in his 70s. He caught on quickly and loves to hunt whitetails. A couple of shoulder surgeries later I had to convince him that crossbows aren’t evil. I told him it would keep him in the woods. Latest deer pic is attached. One can only hope to be climbing ladder stands at 89!!

Heck yea that’s awesome! I hope to be dead and gone long before 89 but if I’m still around I spose our killing deer would be a good thing to be doing!
BRAVO ! We should all hope to liv and hunt that long. You go guy.
Amazing, I can only hope to be able to do that at that age.
Go Pop, go !
Age is just a number. Good for him!
Kudos to your dad, JB! Enjoy every minute with him!
Thanks guys. My wife gave me the wise advice to spend as much time with him as I can. We have had some great outings including today.

Great post. Fire burns always for some!
Thanks guys. He has his priorities in the right place. He is having back surgery (yes at 89) but he told them it had to wait until after the MN rifle season.

My father shot his last deer at the age of 82. The following year, when I dropped by to discuss hunting plans, he told me that he wasn't up for it that year. He instructed me to use his camper and Jeep for myself, and to have a good time. I knew it wouldn't be long after that. Sure enough, he died a month later.
Do whatever you can to keep that fire burning, JB.
Sorry to hear that Matt and I understand completely.
