    Default Early morning hunt

    A hunter and his friend were sitting in a tall tower stand near Highway 7
    early one cold December morning.
    Suddenly, a huge buck walked out over the corn they had spread in the low
    shrubs. The buck was magnificent, a once in a lifetime animal. His rack
    was huge.
    The hunter's hand shook as his mind was already counting the Boone and
    Crockett points. Moving quickly, the hunter carefully aimed the Leopold
    scope on his .300 Win Mag at the unsuspecting buck.
    As he was about to squeeze the trigger on this deer of a lifetime, his
    friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing slowly down Highway 7.

    The hunter pulled away from the gun stock, set the rifle down, took off
    his hat, bowed his head and then closed his eyes in prayer.

    His friend was stunned, "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching
    thing I have ever seen you do. You actually let that trophy deer go to pay
    respects to a passing funeral procession.

    You are indeed the kindest man I have ever known, and I feel lucky to call
    you a friend."

    The hunter shrugged. "Yeah, well, we were married for 37 years."

    A fitting tribute.
