When he was 12 or 13 he and I went duck hunting on the Quiver river during his Christmas break from school. We didnt kill many ducks but I killed a couple of turkeys and we got checked by the game warden. Josh was sweating bullets we did not get caught we had many laughs about that in the years to come. He was a great guy and good friend. We lost a good one Bill Parks
