Hard to enter this knowing I have 2 boys who have been extremely active this year. Wish I could enter 2 photos, one for each.

Here's one from this fall, of my son who shot his first ever early-season goose. It was a proud moment. One I'll never forget.
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

I've shot a lot of images this year from Alaska to Oregon.  Here are my shots of 2016 (even though folder url says 2015 they are all 2016):

https://shawnmccully.smugmug.com/Images-By-Year/2015

This one seems to mean the most to me for various reasons.  It was with my daughter, it was a long long hike and hunt to find rams, and we were rewarded in the last canyon we looked in with this huge ram in such a pretty setting.

Wow pope what a collection of photos! Is the ram you posted in as deadly a spot as it looks? Looks like one misstep and you fall for a week - a very bad week.
