James Bunch Family Stories


Carl (Photo Above) was a very good hunter and liked to hunt a lot.  According to my father he used to like to hang his gun on his forearm so that if he saw an animal he could flip his arm so the gun would come to his other arm.  This way he could make a quick shot.  He also collected herbs and such to make his own medicine and he never in his life owned any vehicle or transportation - he walked everywhere even when traveling far distances.
