Shots from the Hip: Recalling a great outdoorsman


Dad leaves behind a colorful collage of ribbons won with his hunting dogs at field trials and hunt tests, a trophy from his days of near-perfect skeet shooting, numerous mounts of deer, pheasant and other game, memories of a small pheasant hunting preserve we shared as a family, well-worn-yet-cared-for firearms that are tied tightly into our family heritage and a coffee mug he was given when participating in a week of Scouting summer camp with his sons.

But, more importantly, he leaves behind a wife, two sons, five grandchildren and countless other family and friends who love the outdoors thanks to his passion and persistence.

You’d expect nothing less from one of the world’s greatest outdoorsmen.
