One for Papa

I could sit here and tell you that my success as a hunter comes from all the hard work I do scouting before season; how I hiked more than a mile and a half, straight uphill, to a vantage point every morning for a solid week, my eye glued to a spotting scope looking for a giant mule deer buck that was somewhere in the area. Although I did everything that I just described, my true success started more than 50 years ago when my grandfather started hunting with my dad and uncle. Every year without exception, he would find the time to take my dad and his brother on a deer hunting trip to the Blue Mountain Wilderness Area in eastern Arizona. Although not always successful on their trips, the time they spent together and the experiences they shared ingrained a deep and undying love for hunting in them, and my dad passed that love of hunting on to my brother Ben and me.
