Here we are in the second week of December, and so far things are a big improvement over November.
I spoke with my old friend Greg Bentley last week and learned he had taken almost a whole month’s hunt. That is what it is all about. He killed a nice eight-point buck.
The snow is flying and the wind is cutting like a two-man saw. And Santa will soon be in Letcher County. “Christmas in Our Hometown” should be another world class event, brought to you by the City of Whitesburg, the Letcher County Kids Day Committee and, of course, the good business people of our county.
I want to ask your forgiveness and let me reflect on the Kids Day events. I understand they have very little to do with hunting, but they are related. In hunting we try to teach people to do the right thing, such as not shooting turkey over bait. The Kids Day Committee tries to teach children to do the right thing by staying drug-free and staying in school — that there are people who care for them.
Without the people of the area, none of these events would work. So thanks for making these events a success.
Christmas in Our Hometown will be held Friday, December 10, beginning at 4 p.m. I hope to see you there.
