    Default A Floridians "Hunt of a Lifetime!" (along with my Wife's bear!!)

    My buddies father came up from Florida and reminded us all why we hunt. Family. My wife was tearing up while reading this and thought you guys would enjoy a fathers experience coming full circle while hunting black bear with his son.
