My eldest son (23) had never been hunting yet alone shot a gun. Got him interested in shooting this spring, last week we went up to northern Michigan to go bird hunting with friends after talking him into it, that took three weeks! Story short first day, shot his first bird on the first flush of the day saw his first bull elk up close and personal (fifty yards) and saw two white tail bucks. Second day he got three more birds (pats). In all 22 flushes 4 birds all his 12 elk 2 were bulls and six white tail two bucks. Great memories alot of laughs mixed with cussing about how bad our shooting was but now have a new hunting buddy a great shooting partner and a son who cant wait to get into the woods again...

That's great! Congrats on the new partner!

Where in MI? I still have some relatives near Ishpeming but haven't been up there in many years.

Dont think the wife will go for more guns two 308's two 12 guages two .22's

Long walks in the woods eh...no dogs owned by either party my britney was killed 5 years ago and havent gotten a new bird dog since but it wont stop me from going out

I vaguely recall a wildlife museum in Gaylord?

Now guns are like golf clubs, you need certain ones for certain situations. You can't play the whole game with just a putter or a wood...

Savagenut,
I like a story with happy ending. I just got back from two days hunting on a pheasant farm in PA with a great group of guys.

I used to stop at the Lumberjack Restaurant in Long Branch on Route 75. Take care...
Joe

That is brilliant Savage...time spent with your family in any pursuit is time well spent...even more so in a pastime everyone enjoys.

Cheers, Vince
