Happy Fathers Day Pops and to all the fathers out there!! . . . Not many people live the life I live and no all get to have a father in their life. I was blessed to live this life and I get to do it with the best father the Lord could've given to me. From the childhood lessons to the adult lessons hes still instilling in me. Theres no other father I'd want to call my Dad. From hunting, fishing, motorycle riding, work, and road trip partners. I know at any point in time I can always count on my Pops to be down to ride. Because I am my father's son, and no matter how irritated he makes me or how country he can. I'm always proud to claim him as my Father. . . . #happyfathersday #mydad #pops #hunting #partners #roaddog
