Essex - In Memory of
Donald Ray Britt
July 23, 1943 to June 18, 2010

His love of hunting brought him joy throughout his life!

Hunting Day

The Autumn air is crisp and cool, and hunters everywhere
Are making plans excitedly, cause hunting seasons here
They look forward to the peace and the quiet of the woods
And anticipating a great day, theyre up and feeling good.
Patience is a requirement, that a hunter cant be without,
He never knows how long a time, hell have to sit it out.
Until finally in the distance, what hes waited for all day,
He spots a grazing deer, who slowly turns and looks his way.
Its exactly what he hoped for, now its moving gracefully,
Unsuspecting of any danger, walking slowly toward his tree.
His heart beats much more rapidly, as he gets it in his sights,
And taking aim, he picks his mark, and sure hes got it right
He takes it down with just one shot, and cant believe his luck,
With pride and satisfaction, he heads home with a 10-point buck.
