I met a guy at church today and started talking. Found out he is a new hunter and has a cow moose tag with his dad. They are hunting in East Canyon and have only seen a few bulls. When he found out I was a hunter he asked for advice. At first I was reluctant to be much help as I am of the opinion that it is the hunters responsability to scout and have a game plan.

Later on during the service we were asked to pray for the guys family as he is going through some tough times.

Turns out his wife and him after a long time of trying were finally able to adopt a young child. Now the biological father of the baby (who is a bum from what I hear) is fighting them for custudy. So basically this guy is in danger of loosing his new son and has a bunch of court stuff coming up at the end of the month.

If any buddy has any info I could pass on to him please let me know. PM if you can.

Thanks

Tom

Can't find a cow moose in East Canyon? :roll:

Here's a tip for him. Get out of the truck; throw a rock in any direction. Walk towards the spot where the rock fell and before he gets there, he'll find his moose.

Anybody pray for the biological father? He's the one going through tough times.

Actually that would be my youngest son who had the moose tag and my son-in-law who is involved in the adoption custody battle. After numerous trips where we only saw bulls, he finally killed a cow. Along with my son-in-law who just started hunting a year ago, we spent all day yesterday getting it out.

We actually talked to several other hunters with cow tags who so far have been unsuccesful. Bulls have been easy to find this year, but the cows have been a different matter.

As for praying for the biological father, that would probably be a good idea, but not so he can gain custody. His problems are primarily of his own making. He is a habitual drug user and a convicted criminal who showed no interest in the baby until weeks after it had been placed for adoption. So far his selfishness has caused a lot of heartache for several families and cost tens of thousands of dollars in medical and legal fees. I would certainly hate to think of my grandson being taken away and placed in the type of environment the birth father would provide.

Flint,
Congrats to you and your son on getting a cow. My sister just recently went through the exact same situation that your son-in-law is going through. It is amazing how they don't care until they have to sign away rights. aAnyway I hope it works out for them. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Flint, I use think that way stereotyping is not good, you need to have the benefit of doubt.
