Salute To Everyday Hunter!

Postby Woods Walker » Sun May 05, 2013 8:38 pm

Everyday Hunter....Steve Sorensen.....has an article at the very end of the recent edition of Deer and Deer Hunting called "Just Once".

I would like to commend him on an excellent piece of writing, and speaking as the father of a grown daughter myself, in this man's opinion he hit it out of the park! I took my daughter hunting with me from when she was little. Deer, ducks and geese. She not only went with me, but she helped me skin and butcher our deer (at our house we don't "process" game, we BUTCHER it!), and pluck ducks and geese, as well as pheasants and other game.

As she grew older she developed other interests in sports and such, but she always liked to shoot with me, both bows and firearms. Today she is a Washington based reporter editor for an online publication that caters to agribusiness. She was on a recent trip where they had to cover the poultry industry, and part of the deal was touring a processing plant. They started to advise her that she might find it a little disturbing abd she just laughed and told them that she was plucking feathers and flinging guts from when she was little so there was no need to worry. That's my kid!

EDH.....I did like you did. I exposed her to all of this, not forced. If she took to it fine. When she get's more settled she does want to hunt....birds most likely, as she loves dogs and dog work. Maybe someday she'll deer hunt too. But either way, no one will ever be able to feed her a line of malarky about hunting because she knows better. If I did nothing else right I taught her that!

You did good. Be proud of her!

Thanks, WW! Somehow, I hit the right keys on that one!

And that's not all. On Saturday I won an award for another article I had in Deer & Deer Hunting, published in the September, 2012 issue -- "The Deer Scrape and Old Spice".
Check out the photo (I'm the one on the right):

The award was "Best Magazine Feature" given by the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.

Well done, Sir, well done! ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
