Ever been on an elk hunt with one of those guys who is a comedian without even trying to be such? That is my Uncle Larry, an uninhibited 73 year-old who has perfected the art of cussing and people still know what he was talking about.
Given the confines of our current times, I instructed my video crew to put together some videos to make people laugh. This one seems to do the trick.
Uncle Larry, Central Wyoming, November 2019. Video at the link.
Definitely got a laugh out of me Randy! Any chance we can see a picture of the bull Uncle Larry shot? Did he actually hit the wrong one or were you messing with him? Either way the video is dang funny.
His nickname is "Red." Prior to 12 years of experimental chemo that caused him to lose his hair and what came back was completely white, he sported a beard and crop of bright red hair; thus his nickname "Red."
My mom is next in line after him, in a family of eight; six boys and two girls. They all are some of the finest story tellers I know, and three of them who served in Vietnam-era came home with a lot of things, mostly some linguistic skills that were hard to temper when Grandma Clara was serving Christmas dinner.
I was blessed that when my parents divorced at my age of 10, my Mom had such a big and caring family to take me under their wings when times got tough. And by hunting, fishing, and trapping with them for all these years, I have mastered the arts of storytelling and probably have a B+/A- cussing grade when I am off camera.
Glad most find it funny. We wondered if it would be taken in the proper context and enjoyed for what it is; Elk Hunting's version of Burgess Meredith in the movie Grumpy Old Men.
Hope you are all healthy and hopefully smiling at the thought of the memories provided by the "Uncle Larry" in your hunting camps.
Thanks for the laughs Randy! I dont watch much hunting on tv anymore, dont care for the Hollywood forces stuff, but when I found your shows, I watch them all. Absolutely my favorite hunter to watch. You represent well! Just wanted to give a good guy a shout out! Thanks
