    I'd give you a triple like for that one if I could.

    First wish is that my dad would kill a deer with archery equipment while I was on a hunt with him. In the 37 years I’ve been hunting he’s killed two deer with a bow. My brother was on both hunts with him but I wasn’t.

    I do like the wish about snapping your fingers to and from the stand.

    If I had one last wish it would be for consistent acorn crops and abundant browse each year on our area.

    On a somber note I’d say the obvious. I’d wish for my son back.

    But trying to be fun which was your intention I’d wish to be a good hunter. I keep trying to learn but apparently I just suck at this (not that it will stop me from trying to learn).

    If I had one wish it would be to bring back my wife’s little brother.

    I love her family like my own and I never got the chance to meet him. From the sounds of it we would be great friends and I’d love to hunt and fish with him. And to see the pain relieved from their hearts.

    On a lighter note, I would wish to get my father-in-law back into hunting and fishing so my son and I can go with both of his Grandpa’s. But, it seems that it might happen. He has been talking about it more and more. Him having a grandchild that loves everything Dad does might have been just what he needed to bring him back.

    But they are FREEPOP. Just in spirit tho. That can be him when you hear something toward the other side of the woods.Its him when you think your telling yourself to calm down and make the shot count.

    I lost my dad at the young age of 21. Oh how I wish.....

    From my own experiences, they both take time. I wish I could tell you they both get easier.

    If you ever get up this way give me a shout. My father-in-law’s an amazing man that has a gift for reaching out and helping people that have dealt with the unimaginable that you both have. Or we can just fish or hunt. My wife and I stomp around these parts regularly and have a pretty good handle on the public land and waters.

    Walleye and Whitetails, what more could a guy ask for! The steelhead are fun when the time is right too.

    I’m 31, so not exactly a man of wisdom. I just listen when people I love try to teach me something.

    I’m with everyone else when I say I’m still learning to hunt. Lol

    After hearing all of your thoughtful and altruistic wishes, I have realized what a depraved individual I am.
