During November 1955 Far Guys Dad and Uncle were hunting near Northome Minnesota.
Far Guy does not remember the hunting story. It must have been a cooperative effort between brothers.
This is Far Guys Dad, Marvin with the deer. The photo is labeled on the back. Marvin nice deer.
This photo is marked. Jim and a nice deer. ( The little dog must be Tiny..he was a a Chihuahua.)
This sign hangs at the bottom of the mount. It says:
Taken by James and Marvin Henderson Near Northome Minn Nov 1955.
I do know that the deer hung in the stairway that went upstairs at Far Guys House. When Trica and Jennifer were little they couldn’t figure out where the rest of it was. Some nights they would not go upstairs to sleep because the scary old deer was looking at them. They would would sit on the steps and bawl. When they got older we would encourage them to run up the stairs real fast and not look at the deer. Some days they were very brave and wanted to be picked up and held on the stair rail to pet the scary deer.
Somehow we inherited the deer. It hung in the family room in the house in Harwood North Dakota. Nowadays it hangs upstairs on the wall above the bathroom door.
Some days I think it has a smirk. We dust it off every once in awhile with the vacuum cleaner. It looks really good for it’s age.
Cousin Bonnie gave the old photos to Far Guy last summer:)
