Me and @msmotherman
stopped by @jamiebmoorehead
Cripple Creek Taxidermy yesterday and picked up my "JR Hunter Buck". I'm sure you are wondering the story behind that. Well...here is short story to catch you up. As my IG handle and my TV show that I hosted for the last few years explains...I love to travel and hunt. In doing this I have gathered amazing friends from all over the globe. One guy in particular that I met in Casper, Wyoming thru my bride really impacted me and became an amazing friend and brother. He taught me everything I know about hunting elk and long range shooting and we became extremely close even though he gave me a ton of ribbing when I showed up to hunt the mountains with my @cvamuzzleloaders
when he always shouldered a .338 Lapua. Unfortunately life got very rough for him and he decided to leave this earth. The last time I visited with him in #wyoming
he had a box of .300win bullets that he gave me as he knew I was in the process of build a custom @bergara_rifles
chambered in .300. The following year after he passed I sighted my new rifle in with the ammo he gave me and filled my muley tag with this buck while hunting with another long time hunting partner @deerburns.
If you look closely to the elk antler pedestal there is the actual casing that JR gave me and the one that dropped this buck in his tracks! Thank you JR....I sure miss you bro!!! Please look for the JR Hunt For Life Foundation on Facebook if you know someone that has tried or contemplating suicide...there is a way out!!! #brothersforlife #wewillmeetagain #sucideisnottheanswer
