The Waiting Game

on November 8, 2012

On Tuesday, November 6th, my good friend and I went out at 4:30 in the morning to go hunting. It was still dark out and very quiet, and the cold wind burned as it drifted across my naked hands. Before we went in to the woods, Caleb and I went over the checklist we made to make sure we had everything for the trip:

1: Extra gloves and clothing to keep warm.

2: Food and water.

3: Extra bullets, and a knife.

4: Compass.

5: Lighter

6: Most importantly, your gun and cell phone.

There are many techniques and strategies to hunt with. The one we used was sitting under a nice, comfy tree with our guns in our lap. With hunting,  it’s all a waiting game, you either walk out empty handed or get a 12 point buck. A lot of people now a days don’t have the time or the patients to go out and have a good time in the woods. I will have to admit that i am one of those people. But for some reason when i get into the woods, its like home and it calms me down. I love being out side exploring things and getting dinner for the night

  1. Christine — this was a nice piece. I think some development towards the ending and showing details of where you were helping would help. I am glad you are catching speed! Mahan
