I'm not necessarily doing it for survival or for the trophy, but more for family bonding.
You see, my girlfriend's dad likes to hunt and he has been asking me for years. I'm finally going to give in and go with him and his kids sometime this fall.
The main reason I'm going with them is because this is going to be a 'fair' fight. We're not going to hide in a blind and put out deer food, we are actually going to go out in the middle of nowhere, camp, and hunt like a true hunter.
Well, fair is a relative term, but you know what I mean.
Years ago, I took a hunter safety course in California but I feel like I should take a refresher course. I don't own a gun, and I'm out of practice.
With luck, I'll be able to do it with the in-laws, to make sure the kids are safe and secure as well (and to show them I'm no expert).
Are any of you hunters? Do you have any advice? Does elk taste yummy? Please share any comments and stories below.
And-a hunting I will go...
