As some of you "ole timers" may remember, I lost my favorite chuck hunting pardner to another man. My daughter went and got hitched about 2 years ago and hasn't hunted with me since. The new son-in-law has and that sorta makes it a little better. I just got the news that my daughter and her hubby are giving me a replacement pardner. Preliminary tests say that things are going good and I'm going to be a Pappy for the first time. It's a boy. To say that we are extremely excited would be an understatement and I just had to share the news with my GGVG family. This is a pic of my daughter that I first posted several years ago, with one of her chuck kills. Thanks for looking. Bill..........

Dee, at age 20. She killed this chuck with a Ruger in 223 from about 168 yds while using the shooting sticks.

Bill, it will be better than you ever imagined!!

My little Miki is 20 months old and is so much joy to my wife and I that I can't describe it...
I know that sounds gushy and ...ya' sorta' like an ol' woman... but its true.
We just helped the kids move into a new house last weekend - it has a lily pond in the back yard and Miki was right out there trying to brain the koi with rocks. Made this old varmint hunters heart glad to see the huntress in her. I have already got the rifle and scope picked out for her first PD hunt. A grandson will be just super.
Congratulations!!

Don't ever let---

the little varmint see in your gunsafe like I did. His first word was "mine" when he peeked inside. Only have half the guns I used to have.
Just kidding, there nothing like Grand-kids. Teach them to shoot and they will always be under your feet.

The little feller will have a good teacher

I can't wait until our grandson can start going with me although I'm concerned the local groundhogs will be extinct by then.

I've had the thrill of watching our granddaughter work on a few PDs and was amazed how quickly she caught on.

Hope the little feller is healthy and has a good pair of eyes.

Pappy ha some things to teach his new partner...

Boys need to learn things that only a father or grandpa can teach. Things such as how to shoot, drive, spit, size up women and etc. Your daughter is already capable of teaching your grandson firearm safety and some shooting tips. I hope, some day, to take my grandson hunting. His mother is against firearms and hunting. She seems to be mellowing a bit altho'. You are a lucky man. Enjoy!
