I had another thread about the memories of my Dad’s pocket knives. Andrew (ahawkeye) asked if I would post pics of the entire display, so here we go. My Dad was not a bow hunter but he was quite the gun hunter and fisherman. Oh the memories and stories he used to tell us kids. He caught a 98 pound blue cat on a set line in the Tombigbee River in Mississippi. This was out of a boat he made and boated with a net and gaffs he made as well…..much of this gear adorns my trophy room walls. He was quite a wing shot and worked with the Texas skeet shooting champion at Kelly Air Force Base (my dad was a copilot on B26s). Some guys they worked with were always betting so came up with a dove hunting contest for these two. They each took 12 shells; my Dad came back with 12 birds. The skeet shooting champ winged one he couldn’t find so ended up with 11. Just a couple stories I recall.Thank you Andrew for asking; this has brought back some great memories for me! God bless!

That is awesome. I remember a lot of that stuff growing up in the 60's and 70's. I remember those old flashlights.

That’s awesome Jasper. We seem to share a lot of the same memories of our dads. I’m fortunate enough to still be making memories with my dad but I know the days coming that will change. I’ve learned to be patient with him and cherish the little things.

Very nice, Jasper. Probably triggers a different memory each time you look at it.

Really a special gift to your pop. He would be proud to know he raised a son like you.

Wow that is just so nice and I loved looking at all the things he once touched and had in your display . Thanks for sharing

One of my all time favorite threads on this forum, a real tribute to your father.

And to you !

Very nice tribute Jasper, very well laid out. I especially like the "dead battery container" flashlight. Seems like every time I picked one up it was full of dead batteries! I heard that joke from a USAF pilot. He said they had bug out kits for when the ejected it always had a flashlight with dead batteries so that's what they called it. I picked up the phrase and continued to use it. Your father would be proud of you, much better than sitting in a box somewhere where no one can see it. God bless Sir.

John, very cool and a great tribute to your dad and his memory. The Herter's Company is lost to many but it was before Cabela's, Bass Pro and all of the others and they had a great catalog to order from. I should have kept my catalog for old time sake. Nicely done. My best, Paul

A very fitting tribute to your Dad. Love the Monkey Grip tire patching kit, the paper shotshells, the Cutter snakebite kit, the old D cell flashlight (Eaver Ready ?), the trot lines or throw lines, the sinker molds, the old knives……I could go on and on but you get it. You obviously get it !

Jasper…..I’m curious as to the significance of the pencil? I have some pencils we found when we cleaned out my grandma’s house after she passed away. They have the name of my grandpa’s filling station as well as the phone number to it. The station’s phone number was “42”.

Very touching reading.

I'm sure he is proud of you.

Good luck, Robb

I was kind of curious about the brass knuckles??

From: Jasper
22-Nov-23
Matt and Greg, I really don’t know the brass knuckle story. I found them in his foot locker after he passed. Knowing my Dad, he probably made them! He could make about anything. He grew up during the Depression and had little money so learned to make the things he needed. Though nothing like him, I benefitted from being around him all those years. Can’t tell you how many things have gotten brought to me to fix in my life….neighbors, my kids friends…..Take it to Chief Stanley, he can fix it! Lol

Andrew, I gotcha in the batteries! Those flashlights were notorious for going out and eating up batteries.

Troy, I looked at the pencil and it’s an International Association of Machinists; my dad worked for Eastern Airlines and ALWAYS carried a pencil and other stuff in his pocket

Thanks for all the kind comments guys. I’m a little taken aback and had no idea how much interest this would draw. I just kinda felt like I needed to do it.

God bless and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

John, thanks for your comment on the knuckles. Your display is just fantastic! I think most of us hold our fathers in high regard, but when you have a dad that shares his passion of the outdoors then it's an even more special bond. A couple of years ago, my wife and I put together a photo album for my dad and we titled it "My family tree has a deer stand in it". We had photos of deer taken going back to the late 60's to present day. There wasn't a dry eye in the house when he was looking through the book.

Thanks Jasper, this thread made me think of the Damascus steel barreled shotgun and the Colt 38-40 pump rifle that I got from each of my grandfathers. They were so much respected by me and all that knew them. You show how much you respected your dad by your display. Good job! Badbull
