Fellows,
Just wishing you all a Happy Fathers day. For me, today is not necessarily a day to celebrate as a father myself, but a day to remember my dads, yes, that's plural. I was fortunate enough to have two of them that cared for me and taught me the important things like manners, morals, integrity, and simply how to be the best I could be. Today, more than ever I miss both of them but I'm thankful for all the years we had together. My father died at age 63 from cancer and he was the one that had the love for shooting, reloading, hunting and Winchesters. My step-father raised me here in Wyoming and also loved hunting and shooting. He was also a police officer and an overall great man. We lost him a few years ago to heart disease.

Today, we honor our dads for the great men they are and thank them for getting us started in our passion for shooting, hunting, and our beloved Winchesters. Happy Fathers Day to all of you and I appreciate all the friends I've made here on the forum. Enjoy the day! 8)

Thanks Gary for reminding us of the men that introduced us to the passions that we have today and guided us in the right direction. My Father like many others was my best friend, mentor for many of the things that I have accomplished in my life. I have just spent a few hours looking through some old pictures of him today and thought I would post this one as it really reminds me of how much he enjoyed the pleasures of a country we are all so proud off. Thanks for everything Dad.

Oh by the way the deer was taken with a .30-30 Winchester Carbine.

Great picture, I like how the rope appears to be strung through the car window. I guess you had to get creative strapping a buck on the back of the car.

I like the photo. Takes you back to a time when the first question asked of you at the local store, gas station or diner was ," Git your deer yet?"

Yes Brad it was a very nice Buck. Originally it was loaded on the roof of the car but it caved the roof in so they moved it to the trunk and pushed the roof back in place. 🙂 Here is another photo showing the size of the deer from another angle.
