Jim had a astonishing way of connecting with wildlife and had made a few pets over the years, Big Bird the Canada Goose and Partridge and Mr. rabbit and a few deer and some unwanted bears. Jim was a good woodsmen and like to hunt back in the Big Woods South, and was a crack shot, he liked to do things the old way the right way. Good man with a horse or ox or cattle and cared for his animals, like to work in the garden and putting up his winters fire wood.
Thursday night at camp was one of his favorite nights to spend with friends, telling stories & catching up on news and listening to old time music. The Mountain will not be the same with his passing. May he have gone some where beautiful, fishing, hunting and trapping. He will be truely and forever missed by his family & friends

Nice tribute to an obviously great and admired friend. Yes he will initially be missed by all who were blessed to know him but take comfort in the fact that as time wears on he won't be missed, instead he will be fondly remembered. That's what we all should aspire to. Hope he's right there with you this season on your wing.
Thanks Eagle 160 I will try to honour him by using his strong ethics and integrity.

Being the animal man he was I don't think the bears were really UN wanted but more ...NOT wanted in his strawberries.
Had the pleasure of meeting the Partridge,didn't know it was a "pet" at the time,stopped to take it's pic and it flew over and landed on the mirror then down to the ground.
Big Bird the CDN goose now he was a bit differant story...safer to stay in the vehicle ...
I "think" I have pics of him with both the Goose and a deer,I will try and find them when I get home and post them.
