One early morning in the fall, it was a rainy day and i was at the millyard having breakfast and Phil came in and said "Jammer, do you wanna go heater hunting?" I said yes! Of coarse we made "the loop". Made it clear to the stop sign at Hainsville road and i said "Hey Phil, i know where we can hunt! Where Tony Parker cut on the nine rod road!!" So we turned around and went about 3 miles back to nine rod road, still pouring hard outside, we went passed the boys from New Hampshire, a party of 10-12 inside camp, i told Phil, "were gonna see a deer in here!!" Drove 2 to 300 yards past camp and i looked down a twitch trail, about 20 yards and there laid a ten point buck, it was lime something o...ut of a calender...picture perfect! I told phil there was one right there and he drove past it. Stopped the vehicle, i got out, i put a shell in my weapon, shot and thought i missed it, cause i saw a white tail go! I said "Phil i missed it!" He said "No you didnt, there were two of em!" Biggest deer i ever shot in my life so far!! I was leaning over the deer when a guy from the camp drove up and said everyone in his camp was laying around doing nothing cause it was raining so hard! I told him about the one that ran off when i shot mine and he went after him! Phil was tickled pink and laughed the whole way home!
I can still here that chuckle today! Best hunting trip ever!
Will miss you Phillip! Always in my heart! See you when i get there!
