Hunting

Hunting is not something I do, but I decided to give it a shot with my dad and grandpa for Thanksgiving. We decided we would drive down the night before and stay in the camper. The camp was located all the way across Bolt Mountain in an area called Farley’s Branch. The next day we got up at 4 am so that we would be set up and in the woods by 6. My dad and I went to a two person tree stand. We sat there for about four hours and only seen squirrels and one little doe. My dad and I decided it would be a good idea to ride the four wheeler until it was time to go back to the camp and have lunch. Riding was my favorite part of the trip. You were able to see all the different sites and it was fun to get out of the tree stand. At around 12 we went back to the camp and we ate lunch. After lunch, I went with my grandpa back to the woods. We rode for about 3 hours. We went so deep into the woods that we found clearing where they were putting up power lines. My grandpa and I only sat for about an hour and we didn’t see anything. This trip was an experience. It was something out of my comfort zone and I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. I wouldn’t say it’s my new favorite thing, but I would consider it a new tradition for Thanksgiving.
