Hi InSights! I am a lifetime member of the NRA thanks to my grandpop. I went hunting with my grandpop, Walter Sosinski, on Dec. 3, 2011 in Wyoming County, Pa. At 8 a.m., I shot my first buck with a .222 Rem. He was a five-pointer. My grandpop was so excited that he yelled “yahoo"! It's a tradition that his friend Joe Lewis made up when everyone goes hunting. Joe Lewis passed away, and my grandpop wants me to carry on the tradition with him that when someone shoots something you yell “yahoo"! I dedicate this story to the best grandpop in the world-mine. Thanks to him I know how to hunt and he taught me a lot of other things too. I can't wait to go hunting again! Thank you, Grandpop. I love you.- Joseph Bush IV, age 8
