I retired from guiding in 2005. On January 15, I will again put on my guide hat for a special cause.
I got a phone call a while ago from the owner of White Oak Plantation in AL. Once a monster, 21,000 acre hunting operation, White Oak closed most of its doors two years ago. It is no longer open to the public. But on January 15, some of the doors will be reopened.
A young man, I'll not name him here, has a severe form of cerebral palsy. His wish is to go hunting and he asked for me to be his guide. A stand large enough to accomodate his wheel chair and me has been built in a prime spot at White Oak and various companies have outfitted him with the latest clothing and equipment. I am honored to have been asked and happy to oblige.
I will get that young man a deer and tell him every story I know.
