Our crew of hunters from around the country made the trip to Crosby in October, at least in part . . . a couple of folks stayed home, worried about the virus, some others had job demands that kept them at home. I made my 26th consecutive trip, traveling alone and, as always, rejoicing when I left US 2 behind and started north and west on Route 5.
Once again, I want to thank those folks who choose to not post their lands. I cannot adequately express how important this trip is to me, my family, and my friends.
My son was able to shake free from work and join me, and we enjoyed a week of hunting, just the two of us, on ground that has provided us the bounty of the prairie, year after year — and some new places.
This has been a very, very tough year for many people — my family has been spared, as we live in an out-of-the-way county in northern Michigan,
We thank everyone in Crosby and the rest of Divide County for once again making us feel at home.
I read the letters to Santa in the “Journal” just now, and choose to believe that those letters give us all hope for the future.
