Celebrating the culture of hunting is always fun and inspirational for me and this past weekend we did just that in Raleigh, NC, at the Dixie Deer Classic which is one show that knows how to entertain fellow Bone Collectors like us.
While there, our whole crew was blown away at the hospitality and attitude of all the people that came to the show. We met so many great people and it was a pleasure to look across the building and see Lee and Tiffany Lakosky enjoying the same treatment.
While at the show I met, Joey Davenport, a 17-year-old young man, that is battling cancer with a very grim outlook of winning the war with it. Despite having a weak immune system and being very weak from his chemo treatments, he and his dad came to the show to meet us and the Crush crew and partake in the annual festivities that the Classic provides.
His attendance touched me and our whole crew very deeply. I just wanted to let everyone out there to make sure to keep young Joey in your prayers and thoughts, and remind everyone to never take for granted what tomorrow brings.
Every new dawn is a blessing, and as we draw near to turkey season and hard gobblin’ toms across this nation, please remember to share the experience with someone you love.
