I'm just a small time celebrity!

I had someone tell me that they had seen my picture in a magazine recently.  He was a customer of mine who has a place on the coast in North Florida.  He picked up a copy of Rifle and Rod magazine while traveling through Bainbridge, GA.  Rifle and Rod is a Southern Georgia/Northern Florida publication that covers anything from fishing on the coast to hunting in a pine thicket.  We do not ever see this magazine here in Fitzgerald, so I didn't even know it existed.

I asked my customer if he was sure it was me because I could not figure out for the life of me why I would be in a magazine.  He said it listed my name under a picture along with my three cousins.  The story was about a goose hunt.  I knew right then who to call.

My cousin Beau is a water fowling nut!  If the story was about goose hunting then I knew he had been up to something.  I called him to ask about the magazine and the picture.  Turns out the author of the article was a friend of his and asked Beau if he would contribute some quotes about goose hunting in South Georgia and a couple of pictures.  He was happy to do so and submitted a picture that he stole from my blog.  The rest is history.

The Luckie boys!  Leigh, Zach, Trey and Beau

You can actually check out the magazine by following this link.  Click on the Winter edition on the bottom right of the page.  You can then turn to page 10 to see the article.  If you would like an autograph I will be glad to send you one free of charge.
