The rifle shot was heard by all three of us. It came from the direction of another member of our hunting group. The distinctive “kaboom” and the “thud” that echoed was classic, a hit on target. It had to connect.
The opportunity at a deer just may have come true for Carl Bertrum, or "Mr. Carl'' to many of us. Carl is 82 years young. He has hunted in his home state of New Jersey for cottontail rabbits, pheasants and deer since the age of 12. For the last 20 years, he traveled to South Carolina and hunted deer near the town of Estill.
Though Carl’s physical abilities now hamper his access to elevated deer stands and walking long or moderate distances, his shooting and hunting safety haven’t found the retirement pasture.
