The secret about hunting is that you have an excuse to roam about the wilderness, doing fun things like climbing mountains and tracking animals. I'm not sure I could even pull the trigger if I had a chance to take down an elk.
Yes, I realize hunting is controversial. Before you judge, check out the Hug a Hunter campaign.
Will hunting make it into my future fiction stories? I hope so. I would love to share the experience!
