Being thankful is important to the Captain, and last year, on Thanksgiving, he was thankful for a myriad of reasons. One of them was because he had the blessing of living in Montana for 34 years, now 35…
I have had the privilege of living in Montana for the past 34 years. I don’t take this for granted, especially during Thanksgiving. I have met many sportsmen and women across the state during my stay in the Treasure State, and I don’t know one person who would leave Montana to live in another part of the U.S. All of my five children were born in Montana and three of them whom are now adults work and play in Montana. Thanksgiving is a day that according to Wikipedia- was originally celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.
He went on to be grateful that he is able to pass his knowledge and experience down to his kids and posted a picture of his youngest son, William:
Passing the experience down from generation to generation is very rewarding. For me it was experiencing the look on my 13 year old son’s face and getting a high five after William shot his first antelope buck this past October.
The Captain also talked about his trip to Fort Peck reeling in Chinook salmon with his nephews, his girlfriend and his sister and the excitement of them catching their salmon there. Also, the Captain refers to a miss at a broadside shot at an elk when he was within 50 yards of it.
I was disappointed in myself for not taking advantage of such a great opportunity but as time passed I began to think how wonderful it was to just have the opportunity to go hunting and experience being that close to a wild animal as majestic and elusive as an elk.
So, from the Captain and the whole crew at the Montana Outdoor Radio Show, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We hope this year has given you plenty to be thankful for even if you aren’t tagging an animal.
