“As a boy I remember my friends returning after holiday and feverishly describing fishing and hunting trips with their fathers. It was a tradition I didn’t quite understand and I grew up without that particular experience in my life.
Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Nevilles Whitetail Ranch and Devin, my guide that day, took me on my first hunt. I’ll admit, as we drove out of the lodge that morning, I could feel the sweat on my brow as I imagined missing my mark entirely or worse-injuring the animal. When the time came, I lifted my rifle and took my shot and my aim was true.
Afterwards, I understood the excitement my friends had felt as they shared their hunting stories with me when we were boys.
Today, I have a new appreciation for hunters and I am looking forward to bringing my 14-year old son to Nevilles Ranch this season.
This is, I hope, the beginning of our own tradition.”
