Hunting Memories

Archery Buck

Here is a picture of my California archery season buck and my daughter who I take hunting with me when I can. When I get a deer, I even pull her out of bed (notice the nightgown) to be with me while we clean the animal and have a biology lesson. The next day we all go up as a family to Ralph’s Smoke House to drop off the animal, pay our respects to Montana and bring home some babyback ribs. As we consume the animals during the year, my children learn to give thanks and never ask for more than they will eat. They look forward to the day they can go hunting with me and obtain an animal themselves. But I wonder what will be there for them five years from now when they can officially hunt big game.
