Memories Timeline


  1. Mitch Aiken says:

    I hunted with Don in Wilkes County at Don Carters farm. He was always a pleasure to be around and was always willing to help, if needed. I was lucky enough to speak with him a few weeks ago at Longstreet , he gave me a report on his health issues and issues of some of the others we hunted with. I am glad I got to know Don and call him a friend.


    Extending my Deepest Sympathy, so very sorry for your loss.

    Don Wade was like family. We hunted together for about 34 years first in Hiawassee, then in Wilkes County, GA. My two sons adored him. Deer season without Don Wade won’t be the same.
