    Dad and Uncle Gary bought the orginal deer camp back in the early 80's. That turned into our family summer vacation spot and as the family grew so did the need for space. That's when Dad and Mom bought a 40 acre lot on one of the neighboring ponds. They bought it in the late 80s and built the first camp in 92. The compound now has a guest camp, a bunk house and just recently a "duplex" (just two big bedrooms)

    We still deer hunt out of uncle gary's camp but all other vacation time is spent at mom and dad's.

    Its a great spot to unplug and spend some time with family. We're awfully fortunate that mom and dad envisioned how special this place would be 30 years ago.
    That's how you do it...

    Thanks for the great pictures and stories. Nice bulls! Your help with the second bull sure must have taken a lot of pressure off the fellow hunting with his son.

    I might be alone on this, but when I'm taking the kids out on something like this, the pressure I put on myself is intense. I try to talk myself out of it, but its just hard to do. You want the kids to have a great experience. What you did for that dad is something he'll never forget. Yeah, I'm sure it was awesome for the kid, but right now, somewhere, that dad is STILL talking to someone about what you contributed to his family.
