Warm hearted Hunter

This one was worth sending...brings tears to your eyes.

A hunter and his friend were sitting in a tall tower stand near Highway

7 early one cold December morning. Suddenly, a huge buck walked out over

the corn they had spread in the low shrubs. The buck was magnificent, a

once in a lifetime animal. His rack was huge. The hunter's hand shook as

his mind was already counting the Boone and Crockett points. Moving quickly,

the hunter carefully aimed the Leopold scope on his .30-06 at the

unsuspecting buck. As he was about to squeeze the trigger on this deer

of a lifetime, his friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing slowly

down Highway 7. The hunter pulled away from the gunstock, set the rifle

down, took off his hat, bowed his head and then closed his eyes in prayer.



His friend was stunned, "Wow,

that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen you do.

You actually let that trophy deer go to pay respects to a passing funeral

procession. You are indeed the kindest man I have ever known, and I feel

lucky to call you a friend."

The hunter shrugged. "Yeah, well, we

were married for 37 years."
