Dealing with age is all part of the process that we all have to deal with. I am part of a hunt club in S Dakota where a large group of guys would get together every year from all parts of the country, Our group of 5 from NY. The Alabama boys the guys from the Dakotas and Iowa all told there were 14 of us . I was one of the youngest at the time it started now 5 are gone and most of the rest have serious health issues that prevent them from making the trip anymore. I'm now the sole owner of the camp as most of the members are in their 80's or late 70's. We did a cool thing to keep a timeline on the wall of the camp we would sign in marker our name and the dates we hunted. I can't recall everybody on the wall but there are over 50 names and the same number of photos detailing the fun time these guys had that shared a common passion for the outdoors. I'm now one of the older guys and I have been pretty diligent in passing this hunting tradition down to future generations and there are several that I have pinned my hopes on that will continue our traditions at our camp. I will be the oldest hunter this year and trying my first Elk hunt but I have to do it in Colorado as we couldn't tags as non res in SoDak. I guarantee I will be slowest in camp, I've started the replacement parts process will a couple more on the horizon. That is ok I've got a few years of good hunting left and this was a bucket list item for me. I will let the kids hop on the horses and hunt the BLM land I will be just as happy posting up and glassing from a stand or a large stump as I love to do in our Eastern woods, you see more that way anyhow. The optimist in me even bought a new rifle for this trip.
