I hope the hell I can do this 50 years from now. Watch the video too, he's looking pretty good for his age.

I'm hoping they have to dart me out of my treestand.

It may be mid-July, I may be struggling to chamber a pack of Rolaids in my 30-06, but I want to be up there.

Great story- 104 years old and still gettin' it done, with a .270, no less!


In lieu of paying for college, our son asked us to buy him a Bassboat. Now I live through him vicariously. smile

Truly inspirational!

A couple years ago I witnessed a a guy in his 80's or 90's mooching through the deer woods with a walker, with his rifle clamped across the handlebars.

Great story. Thanks for sharing.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

he was hunt on ward burtons property. he has some prime hunting land. ward is a great guy ,i got to know him during the fight to stop the shenandoah fish kills from 2004 -2010. he did a lot of fighting to get our sewage treatment plants upgraded with better filtration systems.

i have a very close friend that missed his first season of deer hunting this year at 88 yrs old.he says he started hunting at 18. i surely hope i can hunt 70yrs.

If you make it to 104, I'll put in a good word for you with the big guy. I'm sure he and I will be acquainted well before that. *grins*

Inspirational to say the least. I plan on trying to out do him in a few years! God willing....

I have no excuses now, after watching him on video, to complain about sore joints, too tired, too hot, too cold, etc.

At 104 years of age who are we to question his wisdom of using a .270?? Thanks for posting.

Nice bucks. I'm 56 and his grandkids are probably older than me. I hope I'm still going strong 10 years from now, much less 50.

I need to show this to my Dad. He's 95 and still hunting. Maybe this will keep him going a few years longer. He still rides his 30 year old four wheeler and climbs into our 10-12 foot tower stands.
