During the off season, why not give them the gift that keeps them mindful and on point, a gift that reminds them of what's to come, and what has been, a statue that symbolizes the relationship between the Hunter and his companion dog.

    femmeflashpoint~ I actually am NOT an advocate of hunting myself, but like you, my family and several friends are true hunters. Our conversations can get a bit heated when broaching the subject! A friend asked that I put a few words down for the sake of hunters this seasons, and this is what I could manage. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I sure enjoy hearing from you!

    Cheers~

    K9,

    I'm one of the few in my family who detests the idea of hunting. But LOVEEEE dogs!!!

    Very cool stuff you've posted here, but the dilemma of "decisons - decisons" set in when scanning the choices, lol.

    However ... I can always let THEM choose. :)
