My First Buck

It was a warm, sunny afternoon in November of 2014. I was still new to hunting since it was my first year doing it. My husband decided to join me on this hunt.

Now, at 25 years old, Ifinally understand.

I was very fortunate to be able to harvest an impala and a blesbok with a rifle. After the trip, I really did think about wanting to hunt again, but I never did.
