Friends In The Outdoors Are The Best

I’m not sure when a special friendship with my hunting club buddy, Mike Brister started. We’ve been in the same club, Two Creeks in Jackson Parish, together for several years and although he has been helpful in getting my stands ready for deer hunting season, a genuine friendship was sealed during this last turkey season. The morning of April 11 dawned cool and clear and I drove to our camp before dawn, planning to hunt alone when Brister drove up, we visited and began formulating plans for the morning. He was going to one spot to listen for a gobble; I was headed for a different spot further down the road, but as we drove away from camp, my old truck died.
