Well not an Alaska hunt but I figured we need a good laugh around here. So my grandpa Larry decided he wanted to hunt this year (he's 80). Now this guy is that old man that wears terrible clothes, he's loud, flexes for ladies, THAT guy. Anyway he and his brother decided to hunt together (gary is 70ish). The whole family told them that it may not be a grand idea to go out alone as they haven't hunted in years and haven't handled guns recently etc (you gotta know Larry to understand). As you can imagine this just fueled the fire. These two old cuss' (read Hal and Len from Shockey) went out built a blind to share the whole nine yards. The blind was located a tough 23 yard walk from Gary's house in Michigan. Up to the opener folks tried to talk them out of if but they were going come hell or high water.
Coin flipped Larry is the shooter. Opening morning as they ate snacks and chatted a deer miraculously appeared. After 10-15 minutes of getting lined up on it, Larry fires the shot heard round the world. Deer dies. Now Gary in his excitement over the event decides to send a 'we showed you' text to the family. The text read "1 shot Larry!" Now the text was in reference to grandpa's shooting 1 shot and killing it but what Gary's wife read was "I shot Larry". Needless to say my freaked out Aunt mounted a rescue only to find two old codgers fumbling with their deer proud as peacocks.
Hope you enjoyed.
