Sorry about my lack of posts as I’ve been hunting but here’s one email I found humorous. My wife always gives the homeless money; let’s see if she laughs about the reason proposed here for this chaps unique appearance:
I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.
I took out my wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked,”If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?”
“No, I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless man replied.
“Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?” I asked.
“No, I don’t waste time fishing,” the homeless man said.”I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.”
“Will you spend this on hunting equipment?” I asked.
“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless man. “I haven’t gone hunting in 20 years!”
“Well,” I said, “I’m not going to give you money. Instead, I’m going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.”
The homeless man was astounded. “Won’t your wife be furious with you for doing that?”
I replied, “Don’t worry about that. It’s important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking, fishing and hunting.”
P.S. it was a GREAT first week of bird season here in PA weather wise. Cool, wet weather makes great hunting and ideal scenting conditions for the dogs. It Beats the hot dry first week we usually have here. I’ll write more in my next field report which will be posted soon. Keep an eye out.
