My Favorite Hunting Buddies

My brother Josh and his wife Katie just had their fourth child, a little boy. I am an uncle of 13 now. Those 13 people are my favorite people on earth. I would rather hunt and fish with them then just about anyone.

There are a few issues with the new baby, Andrew, he was born six weeks early and is in the NICU. He is on a ventilator and has a hole in his lung. Needless to say we are all praying for baby Andrew.

This is my call for your prayers. Thanks in advance.

Here is a picture of two of my nephews, ones 12 and ones 13, they both love hunting and fishing. And they can sure shoot a shotgun too.

This is my nephew and I on a very unsuccessful dove hunt earlier this year. Don't worry if it looks like my gun is pointed at the camera it is, but the camera was set on timer... no one was behind it.

We love to fish too.

Congratulations on the new nephew. You are gaining more hunting buddies all the time. Some of my favorite outdoor memories are hunting and fishing with my nephew Josh. You know, pretty soon you will have to add to the Garner clan? Plan on the Bechler trip this August!

I'll definitely keep a good thought for the new baby. He's a cutie.

Eric great post. I can't wait until Jed gets home from school. He is going to love seeing it. We're all planning on fasting for baby Andrew on Sun. Lets add Emmie Lou's little guy Stoan too. He is so sick right now with RSV. Love ya, Lisa

Good for you, Eric! We should all be working with the younger generation to present them with the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. TV and Video games are the NOT the real world.
