    We had another get together this week I went over snd wrote directions for netflix. Talked about his cars. Which one he wish he Stil had. Which was the fastest. Also asked what’s the best advice he ever heard. Still waiting for the answer on that

    My grandpa was retired, living in town, was past prime, and had a stroke behind him, before i started hunting. We never weta line or hunted together, but he gave me hours of instruction on visits. He raised 4 kids during the deppresion and was drafted into the army in ww2 when he was in his 30’s, so he had done it all. Even trapping after he moved to town as a way to buy christmas for his kids. Once I asked him what brand of traps he used. “Never had any, I used deadfalls” then showed me how to make a deadfall trap. He caught enough fur with deadfalls to buy Christmas. How many people do that now ? Neccessity will harden you.

    My Grandpa had a big fish cage in his basement. About 4 ft long, 2 ft wide, a ft deep. Wood frame with rat wire covering, narrow door the length of it on the side. You lay it in the water, door up, and just toss the fish in. The family vacation was to take family and camp on ky river, fishing all week. Just toss the fish in. End of week meant cleaning the fish and filling the freezer. Vacation costed nothing but the gas there, and you had fish to eat for a year. Im sorry that those days were over before i came along.
