I am a hunter first and a bow hunter second. I have been teaching hunter safety for a long time . Yesterday was very special to me. I had the opportunity to interact with two young boys due to the generosity of my good friend ,Doug . Doug had made a couple of kids bows and the two boys wanted to shoot . Before I arrived Doug had put some balloons on a huge Styrofoam target. The boys arrived with their dad a bit late but they were all excited. The older boy was full of confidence . The younger, Charlie wanted a coach. He selected me. I helped him nock an arrow while pleasantly but firmly reviewing safety. The boys shot at the balloons more times than I want to admit. Each hit was a celebration each miss was met with positive feed back. I am excited by the mood of the day Doug and I plan to rifle hunt together on Saturday. I think we have hunted together since 1970 or earlier . I am truly blessed by having an old friend to hunt with and a new generation to teach. My grandchildren plan to join the next balloon shoot.

Ballons filled with cash for my kids. Sometimes a little, sometimes more.

My son carried the tradition for his graduation party.
