Fred really enjoyed Camping & fishing for Trout at Rooring River State Park in S.W. Missouri. He also enjoyed hunting Upland Game Birds, [Quail, Pheasant, & Doves.]
I was hunting Rabbits with Fred with 22 Rifles years ago after Quail season had closed, We flushed a covey of Quail and Fred instinctively swung around and SHOT a Quail on the fly with his 22 Rifle & killed it, That is how good a shot he was.
