On several trips we would go into abandoned homesteads. The Maasai keep their cattle in a thorn enclosure at night, keeping them safe(r) from predators. The pastoralists move when the surrounding area has been grazed down, firewood becomes scarce, or as I can testify, the flea population rises to unbearable levels. 168 flea bites on my back.

Thank for for his and your service
Semper Fi to your father and to all my other brother's and sister's in arms. You fight for all of us and we owe all of them a debt of gratitude. Whether said or not, you all are in our hearts. I know the spouses who remain at home go through a tremendous amount when we're gone. Without them, we could not do our job.

God Bless You My Friend,

Great Grandpa 1945 buck

Here is my great Grandpa Ross Meek in 1945. He lived in Indiana but had to travel to Michigan to hunt whitetail deer because there weren't any around here back then. He was the only person in our family to shoot a big game animal until 44 years later when I killed my whitetail doe. Him, his sons, and my uncles hunted small game all the time. I have plenty of old pictures of all sorts of critters the would hunt. Not sure who the other fellas in the picture are, would love to know. Unfortunately my grandma is probably the only one that might have but she has dementia and doesn't even know who I am anymore.

I have the mount and the tag is still attached to the rack.

As a new member i scroll through all the topics looking to see where to start. When this one came up i didn't hesitate and am glad for it! This is an awesome thread, even if some of you have pics as a baby when i was in my late teens.

I love looking at old hunting photos, especially the ones with critters strewn across jeep hoods, haha. But what I don't understand is how they killed all those animals without all the latest new camo gear?
