A World Class Hunter Has Passed
« on: December 22, 2015, 12:37:04 PM »
My 92 year old brother-in-Law has passed away. He was a hunter of untold stories and situations.

He has taken every animal available in Africa except a hippopotamus. He has taken every species of North American game animal, except a Blacktail Buck. He was making plans to come to Washington
to do that, but his hunting guide (me) got too old to host him.

Below are a couple pictures of Utah mulies he has taken over the years. Both of these mulies are B&C animals. The first one has a 37 inch spread, the other a 38 inch. These pictures were taken by
me as he was trying to figure out where to hang them. All walls are taken.

His funeral is today in Austin Texas. RIP Boone.

Please enjoy the pictures. Muskrat

Sounds like Boone had a full life. Sorry for your loss. That's an amazing mulie!

This guy lived!

I'm sorry for your loss, but sounds like you were lucky to call him your brother in law!

:yeah:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Sorry for your loss.
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

He is probably living the good life in the happy hunting grounds. Rest in peace Boone.
