Hunting with the Savage

This morning I had my first ever hunting experience. My friend savagemodel1899b {that's him in the pic) invited me to tag along for opening day of turkey season.

He picked me up at 3am. Our first stop was his house, where he had all the hunting necessities laid out for me. Then my make-over began. Before I knew it, I was in head to toe camouflage. Now, keep in mind, I am generally quite picky about what I wear. So, needless to say this was a first for me.

We had a quick breakfast, packed up our lunch, loaded everything into the truck and off we went.

We parked on the road at the bottom of a large hill, packed up our gear, and began the seemingly endless hike up the hill. Savage, an avid hunter and soldier, marched up this hill like it was nothing. I, on the other hand, slowly pulled up the rear. My poor lungs felt the pain of over a decade of smoking (more motivation to quit). Savage was very patient with me, my huffing and puffing, and my short little legs. He's close to a foot taller than me so two of my steps were equaling about one of his. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit. But, that's what it seemed like at the time.

We finally got to the top of the last hill and savage began using his turkey calls. Almost immediately we heard a tom calling back. Pretty cool experience I must say. Anyway, we made our way around to the tree line to begin working towards him. All the while monitoring his location with the calls. And every time his call was answered, Savage's face lit up like a kid on Christmas morning.

When we arrived at the wood line and found a spot to set-up, we unloaded and took our places in the blind. It was so peaceful out there. The fresh air, the light drizzle, it made for a very relaxing morning. At least for me it did. But, then again, I was just a tourist on this outing. Savage was still working on getting his bird.

Unfortunately for him though, this turkey was not going to play along today. By the time this posts, he will be getting ready to head back out to try again.

The hike back down the hillside was much more enjoyable than going up. All in all it was a great experience. This was something I never really thought I would do, or would even want to do. I'm glad that I kept an open mind and decided to take him up on his offer.

Good for you and Think I understand why He does what He does...For I too spend a lot of time in the back 40 by myself not hunting but I do find a lot of deer and javelin signs along the way..For me its the only place that makes any sense...Out there life is REAL and if you fuck up your dead...I like keeping it REAL and knowing I can make it back there on my own. Not sure why that is, it just is...Ready

Now Mari,
I will have to say that you did one hell of a job yesterday, trying to figure out my crazy hand signals that you obliously didn't understand but you reacted well and played along with tht eunwriten rules of the woods, by keeping wuiet adn following the one in front of you... And Always watch where you step, there is a lot of SHIT out in the woods... And if anybody cares to ask Mari's new knickname is " TANGLES WITH THISTLES"

But all in all there MARI, I am glad that you had a wonderful time, and can see the pleasure and peacefulness of Hunting, because is not about the Kill is about being one with nature..
