MidwayUSA announces the launch of the first three “Larry’s Short Stories” as a new feature now available on midwayusa.com.
Dad taught me to hunt and fish, back when I was growing up on the farm in northeast Missouri. Things were much simpler in the ‘50s and I can’t imagine what my life would be like today, had I not enjoyed the benefit of all the instruction of those early years. I shot my first duck at age 9 and my first quail at 13 – the same year I got my first gun for Christmas – a hand-me-down Stevens 16 gauge single shot.
Some of my fondest memories are the hunting and fishing stories Dad and my uncles shared with us kids back then – generally around the wood stove, and other times in the field. Unfortunately, it was pure and simple storytelling, so all I have are the memories.
Now, as a father and grandfather and having hunted and fished all my life, I am taking the time to write down some of my own stories – for the enjoyment of my children, grandchildren, friends and Customers.
These are all real stories that I participated in, nothing is made up; and I write them purely for your enjoyment.
