Today is the day where there is a disturbance in the wildlife force. When dawn breaks, you can hear the echoes of gunshots near and far. Today is also a day where boys become men and many stories and traditions about the hunt will be revisited. Oh and let’s not forget the huge breakfasts and the unlimited supply of chili, bean soup, and homemade bread. Walkie talkies will get their 15 minutes of fame and of course the buck pole will display proud trophies. Sometimes it isn’t about the hunt, but making memories—although it is nice to enjoy a nice venison meal.
Happy hunting to all the men, women, and children out there. I hope you get to tag your buck.
