My brothers and I were raised with a deep respect for nature and the out of doors. As I seldom attend church I guess you could say my cathederal is the woods. I've had many a long talk with the MAN while sitting alone in the deer stand. He's really a good listener, much like my dog. They both are more than happy to give me their time and a listening ear. When it comes to ducks and geese, it's usually me and the dog (Cruger) and a friend or two. Perhaps the best of all is just the two of us hunting Reilly Brook for grouse and timberdoddles. Just the two of us! Walk for a half hour, stop at one of our make shift duck blinds for a bit maybe a mallard or woodie will come. Just waste away the day with my best buddie. There's plenty of time back at the shack to BS and have a cold one while suppers cooking and the dog is curled up by the wood stove. A Person (I'm being politically correct) and their Dog enjoying the hunt together, it just doesn't get any better!
