Who doesn't like a blast from the past photo? This photo was provided by Mr. Doug Nettleton of Volga, SD. Doug is the little guy in the a ripe old age of 2 1/2 years! Others pictured (left to right) are his Uncle Dennis Johnson, Dad Robert Nettleton, Uncle LeRoy Nettleton, Grandpa Emil Johnson, Mr. Stever, and Grandpa Amos Nettleton. Photographer is most likely Doug's Grandmother Clara Nettleton. Although Doug was to young to. remember the day, pictures don't lie.....It was a successful day hunting (most likely) Kingsbury County.
