I really miss Tom also. 4.5 years ago, Tom gave me my little setter Hanna and this year we had our best year ever for grouse. I spent a lot of time driving up to Bloomsburg for a year, almost every week! When she was finally ready, Tom came up to my cabin to see her first hand in the grouse woods. He was truly amazed at her ability and couldn't believe the amount of birds we had seen in the time we were out. He was really proud of her! Hanna came from Tom's setter Riley, and a female from West Virginia. Tom really liked the area of my camp and had talked to me about bringing his string up there for a month or so in late summer/early fall to run them on grouse but he got sick again and passed before we could make it happen.
I think of Tom often, especially in the fall when Hanna finds me another grouse. I look up and see him smiling down with a nod of approval!! I miss you buddy!
