I woke many mornings before sunrise to meet my friend afield in persuit of whatever quarry was in season at the time. Whether bowhunting deer with his recurve bow, or carrying a traditional flintlock for muzzleloader season or riffle hunting Rick always believed in giving the deer the advantage for some reason. I asked him why he carried a single shot rifle for deer season, he answered, (if I can't get it with the first shot I don't deserve a second one).
It didn't matter if we were hunting waterfowl with Sammy all along the shoreline, breaking ice at the boat launch to get in one last goose run at Barn Island, pheasent hunting with our dogs Sammy and Bow, or fly fishing at Frank's or one of the many other streams we frequented, our conversations always included our families, Rick was very proud of his kids, and talked about them all the time.
Neither of us have hunted in years but occasionally I stopped by to visit, catch up, and relive our excursions afield. We probably retold the same stories a hundred times but I truly enjoyed reliving the moments.
I'll miss my friend.
