I recently became interested in the art of deer hunting. The weekend of Thanksgiving was my first time out in the woods with a gun with the intent of bagging a deer. Here are some things I learned over the course of that weekend. [Please note: these events actually happened, but the sketches are just artistic representation.]
Lesson: Things aren’t always how they sound.
Lesson: Stepping on a deer is not a good way to track it. …Unless you want to watch the deer running through a corn field.
Lesson: Being quiet is a way to not be noticed by any wildlife in the immediate area.
Even though I didn’t get my first deer, I still had fun, and I’m planning on going out to the woods sometime soon. Hopefully I get a deer … at some point in my life. Besides, if deer hunting were easy, everyone would be doing it! … so I’ve been told…
