    Glad you guys are still at it i been at it over 50 years but couldnt make it this morning been sick since august hopefully maybe get to go this afternoon 1st gun was a sears and robuck 410 bolt action as for the phone we were on a party line with 4 other people you could pick it up and listen to other people which was very annoying because sometimes when you needed it someone was on it you had to listen to how many times it rang to see if it was for you ours was 2 rings if it was 1 or 3 or 4 it was for someone else i still think as far as hunting goes it was more fun back then not many deer and you were happy with what ever buck you got early on was no doe season for here i wish you guys the best of luck and enjoy

    46 years here. Took my 1st buck in 1975 with a Marlin lever action 30-30. He was a 5 pt that I had missed the day before with my Bear recurve. There were less than 4000 deer taken in the entire state that year.
