Special gift.
« on: May 28, 2023, 06:40:17 pm »
I got a very special gift given me at the Classic, as yall know Gary passed away last year and GFred passed away around Christmas and this was Teresa's first trip without him.When she got there she said she had something for me, she knew Gary and I was close and Fred and I become good friends over the last few years, she said she couldn't think of a better place for it to go. It was a bow Gary built for Fred in 2011. It has all the style of Gary's bows from tips/grip to snake skins the way he put them on. it's 70 inches long T-T and 55@28, prefect for my 26 inch draw, I plan on trying to kill something with it this fall, I shot it and it shoots nice as I knew it would. It will be cherished and in my family forever. Very special to me and I feel very blessed to have had such friends in my life, many are still around but many have left, sad but guess that's life hear on Mother earth. Thought some would want to see it, like we say about our kids, looks just like Gary.  :) :) :)

That certainly is a special gift Pappy.

Iím certain it will provide a successful hunt. Maybe a couple.

Very cool gift from Teresa, Pappy. What a tribute to both G. Fred and Gary.

Definitely a treasure! Hope you make meat with it this season.
