Why April 12 sucks


In my 64 years on this planet, I have had the privilege of having many, many great friends. But today marks the anniversary of the death of one of my very best friends - and partner in crime - Leon Douglas Shipp.

Shipp was always the prankster, and always up for anything that sounded like fun. He made dull times into a party full of life and laughter.

My heart breaks every April 12th when I remember the phone call I got from Champ telling me Doug had died. He was only 39.

My only salvation - and keeps me from erasing April 12th from the calendar - is that my grandson, Nolan was born on April 12th.

The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away.

HUNTING TIPS

#1 

Use BBB or BB shot. 10 gauge is best, but 12 gauge is fine.

 

#2

Wear something that will keep your backside dry on cold wet ground. Goose hunting is an extreme sport, and you are in the elements - be prepared.

 

#3

Wear dark or white clothing. Do not wear hunter orange. Unlike deer hunting, we do not need to see each other since we are shooting in the same direction.
