Title: Letís see your throwback pictures
Post by: go4steelhd on March 18, 2021, 01:02:40 PM
Please share your old time photos of hunting or fishing. I really hope to see some of the good old days photos.

I have some photos from the good old days, I just didnít really know how to hunt/fish yet.

This was on the salmon river in 92 or 93

Yes that is my dad.
The older I get the more respect I have for what he did back then.
Now I am taking my son out, it changes things a lot. But I really enjoy it.


I have enjoyed watching the success of your son on the hunts you have shared over the years on here, nice work  :tup:

Maybe not a throwback but I was definitely way younger.  My 1st elk. Hunting Eatonville Hancock when it was still walk in access. 5 road miles from the gate. I was by myself, shot him at 20 yards and watched him tip over. Took me over 20 minutes to find him in the tall ferns. Called my brother for help. On my way out I walked past a logging operation. They were jacked that I shot an elk. They asked how I was going to get it out and I think them I was heading down to meet my brother and we were going to come back and cut it up. They said to drive in and they would move their stuff to let us through. I couldn't have been happier because I had no clue what I was really going to do with this elk. Lol. By the time we drove back up they had the road cleared and even came up after work to see if we needed help.

I still have my dads old Black Bear(its around 70 yo :dunno:), my great grandmas(the one she was wearing in the picture where she lassoed the big 4 point) and my great grandpas, both those are around 80-90 years old, priceless. Every once in awhile I will wear my dads out on a hunt, especially if I go into an area that holds a special memory.  I remember him putting my feet in the pockets of that coat and rubbing them to warm them up many times on some dang cold Methow mornings when I was just tagging along as a small boy.
