Our second granddaughter got her buck yesterday. This is her first year hunting, so she was pretty pumped about it. She had to call and tell me all about it--AND let me know that she even helped field dress it. She said it was "GROSS!" :) Her older sister got HER first buck the first year she hunted, too. I guess it is a case of beginner's luck.
I have no problem with people who hunt. The Husband used to hunt and trap when we were in high school, but has done neither since we got married. If he had had friends that were into hunting big-time, I'm sure he would have been, too. But, he just doesn't have anyone that he would go out with. And I REFUSE to eat wild game, so he would be left with trying to find someone to take the meat if he actually managed to get something. (However, the local food banks accept donations of wild game, so none of the meat has to be wasted.) The Oldest's family pretty much depends on the meat they get from hunting. She is hoping that her oldest daughter AND her husband will be successful this year--it will keep them going for quite a long time. They still have a few days to try.
