If you’ve been reading this blog since the early days then you may recall the story of “The Longest Minute”. It is about two hunters and their dramatic encounter with a grizzly while quartering a moose in the Alaska wilderness. It is a fascinating story written by Doug White, one of the hunters. But that’s not the reason for the post.
In the story, Reed Thompson, pictured here, distracted the bear long enough for Doug to free the pistol and take the single shot that saved their lives. At that time Reed was dating my cousin, Cooke Adams, and today I am proudly looking forward to future hunts with our newest family member! Reed proposed to Cooke on Thanksgiving and we can’t wait to get him into the Doubletough fold!
