    Great job Larry. You are an inspiration! Glad that Steve and Dom were there to share it with you.

    One of my treasured hunting memories is taking an 83 year old great uncle out for his final few specks in the Tule fields.

    Awesome post. I sure hope that when my dad is 80 we can still enjoy the great outdoors together.

    I’m pretty sure he saw the band and pushed me out of the way when he went to shoot.

    Bird was banded at Los Banos last June. Sucker grew fast. It was a big boy
