My Dad, who is nearly 96 years old and lives with us, shot a wild turkey (with a pistol) in our back acreage yesterday. I’m roasting it this weekend. I will challenge anyone who tries to take his guns away. He can’t remember what he had for breakfast, but he knows and respects his weapons. And so do I.
Some old people are really amazing! I’ve heard of some people in their 80, older veterans specifically, catching robbers and thugs when they try to rob them or break into their houses!
Some older animals are amazing too! Just when you think they can’t do some things anymore, because of issues with senses, they surprise you! We had an elderly cat several years ago who we suspected was losing hearing, sight, etc.. We didn’t think she could do much in hunting or catching mice anymore. Well guess what? She bagged 4 mice the year or two before she died at about 17 years old!
Of course, she wasn’t able to do what she did as a much younger cat, but not bad for her advanced age; I was always bragging about her abilities at her age!
