Continued from page 11 Judge Graham Quisenberry District Judge Judge Graham Quisenberry began his love of motorcycles at around 14. “My first was a Honda P-50,” he said. Now he rides long distance all over the country. “I’ll take a week or ten days and ride. I’ve ridden to Key West, all the way to Montana, and the Carolinas,” Quisenberry said. Generally, he rides with a group of two to six people. Now he has six motorcycles; two Triumphs and a Victory that he rides regularly along with three antique Suzukis, (one of which he rode while in law school.) His favorite part of riding however, is the view he gets every time he rides out. “The unobstructed view of my surroundings,” he said. “I’m on the move seeing something different all the time.” Craig and Mader Bagley JULY 2016 PA R K E R C O U N T Y T O D AY State Farm Mader-Bagley Insurance Craig Bagley has been a hunter all of his life. “I grew up with it. My Dad started me when I was very young,” he said. “I love the outdoor environment. [There’s] a lot of solitude in nature. I just enjoy the sport of it and watching the animals.” As soon as his son, Mader, was old enough, he began to share his love of hunting with him, taking him along when possible. Now they usually hunt once a week during deer season, which begins in November and ends in January. He hunts in Moran, close to Albany, and in the Poolville area as well. “I hunt with my Dad’s 30 aught six,” he explained. “It’s 30 years old and still in mint condition.”  They also have a drone to scout out the hunting area. “I’ve had it since early last year. I’ll fly it over an area and see the lay of the land and what the best area is,” Bagley said. “Last time I had it up, I kept hearing a turkey gobble and when I brought it down the turkey came real close. He wanted to know what the ‘white bird’ was.” Though he sees a lot of turkey, he doesn’t hunt them.  “I like to watch turkey but not shoot,” he said. “They’re fascinating to watch, but if I need a turkey I’ll go to Albertsons.” 14
