“Team Traditions”… they made the paper!

What a weekend!  So, I should probably begin with the beginning...  I was raised in the woods, the edge of dove fields, covered in camo, grinning ear to ear, learning of God's handiwork beside my mother and daddy.  Hunting has always been a part of my life and my daddy always made sure that … [Read more...]
