Happy Veterans Day

Recommended Posts

To all my fellow Veterans,

I hope you have a peaceful and relaxing day.

If you also happen to be out there hunting then I hope you have a day full of solid opportunities. Good luck and get a monster.

Happy Vetrans day to all my fellow vets. Lets never forget those that dont get to enjoy the freedoms they sacrificed for. 

I lost one of my best hunting, fishing, and girl chasing buddys in Vietnam, as well as several other friends...Was a pallbearer at his funeral just  one month before I left for active duty myself.  It was the first time that I cried since I was 12 years old.... He never made it to his 21st birthday...

I still think about him nearly every day...... Thank you all for remembering  guys like him....

Thank you to all who served, here is a picture of some of my grandfathers medals for WWII rifle is for effect, I will say he carried and identical one for the better part of 5 years from North Africa, to Italy, France and eventually Germany. I have his coffin flag somewhere but didn’t want to dig it out for this pic

Out of likes, Chef....Put me down for a BUNCH for your Grandpa's medals and that M-1....

I also have a WWII vintage M-1 ( 1943 Springfield reciever) and wonder what it may have witnessed ....

My Dad served aboard a Fletcher Class destroyer for over two years in the Pacific and saw LOTS of action...His ship was involved in many of the battles taking back the Islands from the Japanese, and suffered 30 + casualties from bomb hits..

However, he once told me that his main goal after serving  2+ years in the South pacific was to get back somewhere  that he could take a ****  without the sweat running down the crack of his ass.. He once spent 6 months without setting foot on dry land..Took on ammo, fuel and stores at sea... When I served aboard a destroyer in 1971-73, I spent no longer than  two weeks at sea at a time, and nobody was shooting at me....I can t imagine what he went through...

Thank you Veterans for all your sacrifices.I wish you all Peace and happiness.


Despite our ever-changing,ever-indignant world with its growing ignorance of and indifference to the ways of the wild, I remain a predator, pitying those who revel in artificiality and synthetic success while regarding me and my kind as relics of a time and place no longer valued or understood.James

The dictionary generally defines the word “Veteran” as someone who has served in the military. 

Not often heard, the definition of a “Veteran” is an ordinary person who was asked to perform extraordinary tasks.

Thank you to all the Veterans that have served our great country and have afforded us the rights we still have today. I owe you a debt of gratitude that I fear I will never be able to repay.
