Monday morning I head south to get camp set up and do some quick scouting. Monday evening a friend who shot his first deer this year will arrive in camp. He only has 30 hours given his heavy work schedule so we have our work cut out.
Wednesday my cousin and his grandaughter will be in camp for four days. They will need to head back home on Sunday for a Monday shift.
I am hoping to find them each a cow elk in the time they have. More importantly, I intend to expose them to a hunting camp. Good food, a warm fire and friends who love you.
I hope to post pics daily of our pitfalls. Internet may be difficult, if so, I will post a daily recap when I get back to civilization.
My friend hunted for the first time this year. He has always been wary of eating meat and killing in general. Recently his family is more accepting to the idea of becoming more self reliant and this is a step to that end.
As I said earlier, he got a deer this year. It was a terrifying experience and he handled it well. He, his wife and 2 daughters came over to the house where we cut and wrapped the deer. They have tried it and find it to their liking. It is better than the fake meat they have been eating. He and I will spend the better part of 2 days traveling the trails of my youth and sharing in the possibilities that each draw possesses. Maybe, just maybe, we will find whatever it is we are looking for.
