While hunting along the Arkansas River, my daughter shot at a small 8 and missed, took off right as she pulled the trigger. When we went to double check to make sure she in fact did miss, she looks down and says dad here is a bottle and there is a note in it. We ried to get the note out several times using our fingers, but every time we would touch the note pieces would fall out, so we decided to break the bottle to get the note out. We are currently trying to find the family to give the note back to them. We are having trouble finding anyone and thought I would see if anyone here might know the family. Victor Elliott is the name and the town is Fairfax,Ok. I googled the name and town and the first hit was on find the grave site website with Victor Floyd Elliott from Temple,TX. If you know the family please PM me and I will give contact info.

Thank you

Brandon

that is super cool. Reminds me of a time I was hunting white wing dove in Uvalde. We found a box turtle with a name and address painted on it. We grabbed the turtle and went looking. Found the house and the lady said she had bought the house 25 years ago and had no clue who the turtle belonged to. She said she would take it but we declined and took it back to the ranch and released it. Stuff like this makes me love spending time outdoors. If you only focus on killing you are missing the point.

Really neat! Might try Ancestory.com to try and locate a living relative. Would also contact the Fairfax Oklahoma newspaper with your story. Good luck!

Very cool.

I'd still rather have a monster buck though.

Super Cool. I knew one Elliott in Robertson County Tx, he passed away a few years ago. I don't know where his kin have moved off to, but I know he had 2 daughters that another friend of mind keeps up with. I'll see if they know the writer. up
