A family


Hello, everyone my name is Cole Zydel. I am a senior at Maine Maritime Academy. I am originally from NJ, I know gross . Two years ago I knocked on a countless amount of doors in search of getting permission to hunt on private property. After being told get off my property and constant NOs, finally someone was nice enough to let me hunt. The last 2 years I was able to harvest 2 beautiful bucks on this property. The person who owns the property is a single mother with 4 children. They are the most adorble and sweet children. The woman is the most kind heartfelt person I’ve ever met. I can clearly see that she is struggling financially and as a student in college I don’t have much to give to help her out. Every other week I bring the children donuts to make the smile! The house, the vehicles, furniture and other things are starting to be posted to Facebook. I just want to make sure that her and her family land on their feet okay. It makes me upset to see her (the landowner) upset and struggling. Times are tough and the holidays are coming up, I would love to do whatever I can to help a kind Maine family.
The picture above is me with 2 of her children! They helped me track and find the buck. They were both extremely excited just as I was! They are adorable and deserve the world!
