I received the saddest news yesterday of my hunting friend/mentor Rex Howell's Dad, Hershel Howell, who had passed away. I was introduced to him back in May 2007 when my husband and I were invited to come to their camp called the Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club by Rex. You could not have met such a wonderful and close-nit family and his Dad was often called the "Chief!" He was a retired Realtor and a good and kind-heated man and a great Father to his four sons, Trent, Paul, Rex, Jamie and his daughter, Holly. He was always happy to see us and we enjoyed his company. He was a big hunter and fisherman and played golf as well. Before the evening meals he would asked if anyone had anything to say or just talk about our successful hunts and afterwards would lead us all in pray before we ate. Hershel was also the author of three published books, LIM, Jeff's God and True Tales From The Council Fire. It want be the same at the hunting camp without the "Chief" and he will sadly be missed by all his family and friends. May He Rest In Peace!
Pictures of Hershel that I took while we dove hunted together with his dog Trigger.
