Cool thing my daughter said

My daughter has been shooting for years, but never expressed the slightest interest in hunting. She rode back from Dallas with me this morning for Easter - we got to talking and she said she thinks she would really like to go hunting sometime. I thought that was pretty cool (I have no sons).
Come and take it.

Has she said specifically what she wants to hunt, or was it to go along and see what happens on the hunt?
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.

Every man needs to know his limits.

I have 4 boys and 2 girls - one daughter loves to hunt the other likes to go but no interest in killing something. It's pretty cool times in the stand will miss it when it's over or wait for all the grandkids! :)

Hope that happens for you!

I gave my son a really nice Savage 308 to hunt with. He has tons of deer on his property in Va. He is a great shot but only hunts paper. He certainly taught my US Army grandson to qualify as expert.  Hope this works out, Tex!

She seems to prefer bird hunting, but when I explained the conservation side of harvesting deer, she took an interest in that also. She was thinking deer are too beautiful to shoot, but I explained how they die then they overpopulate and she understood.
Come and take it.

That's wonderful Tex.  I hope you'll be able to take her hunting this fall.

That would be a dream come true. The problem I am facing now is finding a place to go that I could afford. I am now retired since last summer, but not by choice (by the economics of covid). And to think I grew up hunting for the price of a license and ammo.
Come and take it.
