My First Buck, Mt. Nittany Conservancy

[img]http://s1068.photobucket.com/user/ja...85e9f.jpg.html[/img]

I started hunting 3 1/2 years ago (I am 28 now) because I wanted to know first-hand the relationship between consuming meat and taking an animal's life. That's not the only reason why I hunt but it's what got me started. I was born and raised in Los Angeles but moved to Centre County when I was 17. That winter I experienced my first snow. After college, before moving away for work, I spent a lot of time in the woods teaching myself to stalk and hunt. After 3 1/2 years of tough trial and error, I shot my first doe during muzzleloader and my first buck on opening day. I butchered the deer myself, packed most of it in a cooler with dry ice (the rest is with my mom) and took it home, skull included, to NYC on the Amtrak. Surprisingly, nobody sat next to me. It has been a good year.

Non est inquirendum, unde venit venison.

Congrats. It's a lot more work and a lot more satisfying when you do it start to finish.

So that's how you get a good seat on the train, wonder if it would work on a plane.

Congratulations

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
