Bo Wafford is an avid hunter, fisherman, father, and grandfather, with five great-grandchildren. After living and traveling over much of the world during his life, he now spends his days in Mt. Vernon, Texas, within four miles of where he was born. He grew up in Northeast Texas, the son of a farmer, spending as much time picking cotton as in school. A desire to find adventure in his life led him to enlist in the Air Force. Bo served twenty-one years in the United States Air Force, retiring in 1974. The next phase of life led him to a career as a hunting guide. He guided and hunted all over the world, including Australia, Uruguay, Alaska, and many more locations. He still guides occasionally at the world famous Y.O. Ranch, Mountain Home, Texas, where he guided throughout his career. Among hunters he has guided over the years, Bo is known as The Legend. “From First Life to the Last Hunt” chronicles the hardships of his early years and a life full of adventures. Bo guarantees every story to be true and authentic, most of the time.
This is a book about paying an old and dear friend back that has done so much for you. Thank you my friend. You will be missed. It is also about survival and attempting to walk softly through this crazy world we live in. With this, my second book, I am trying to prove my point instead of my opinion. Douglas B. Egenolf was born and raised just south of Indianapolis, Indiana and is the youngest of seven children. He has traveled the United States through his work and for pleasure. He is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and a current member of the Ruffed Grouse Society. He still calls Indiana his home where he resides with his wife and kids.
