Fall is my favorite season out of the other three sensational seasons in Minnesota. I love fall because it happens to be my favorite season of the year. No, not volleyball or football season, but deer hunting. I have had good years hunting, and I have had bad years hunting, but my favorite year was my second year hunting. November 8th, 2014.
For the past 5 years, my grandparents, my step cousins, my cousins, and I would take a trip to a resort, Glendorn, in Pennsylvania to hunt. We would wake up around 4:30 every morning, put on layers upon layers of clothes, and load into Jeeps with rifles in our hands, and then drive around with a guide through the trails in the woods. We would circle around the same area several times, hoping for something to reveal itself. There would be days where we would not even get to see one deer, and others where it seemed everywhere we turned had at least one deer. But throughout my experience hunting, there have been a couple questionable events that made me think about if I wanted to continue or not.
Deer Hunting As my Dad and I pulled in the driveway around 11am, my Uncle Jack was about to go out hunting in the stand that everyone has been getting deer in. I couldn’t pass that up as he asked, “Would you like to go out with me?” I wasn’t sure I wanted to go out since I already went out this morning and stayed up late last night. Before I knew it, my Dad was getting my gun ready and loaded. I then climbed in the Razor with thoughts going through my head like should I really go out with him and not dad later? All dad can thought about is me getting my first deer?
A Day of Hunting It was early one chilly fall morning, just getting ready to go hunting my Dad and I. There was hardly any rain water on the ground. The tall field corn was standing still. The birds were going bonkers from us walking out there. We could hear cars flying by on the main road.
Afterward we went to a park and played on the swings, went down the slide and climbed the monkey bars. All of us had fun, but we were exhausted. We went back to the rental and played some video games. Soon after my mom shouted, “Come eat dinner!” Then me and my sisters raced down the stairs and went right to the dining room. We ate to our fill and then we went right to
The deer ran away about 60 yards from where I killed it. I couldn’t even believe it. I called and texted my mom she couldn’t even believe it. We had to wait a few minutes to see where it was because if it was still alive we didn’t want to scare it off. We waited 5 minutes but during those five minutes me and my dad celebrated and hugged for probably 2 minutes.
Do you you have any food?” I excitedly asked. “Ummmm, no,” she answered back. I turned a few steps to the left and smiled at my cousin. “So are you going to finish that turkey sandwich,” I mischievously smiled. “I don’t think so, I’m really full,” he said back like he had just eaten a whole turkey.
After we all had finished breakfast i got upstairs to get ready to leave for my grandparents house ”. Me and my sister were done so we had ran to the car and waited for mom and dad. Soon enough they came and we all had gotten in the car, dad was driving mom was in the front passenger side and my and jill were in the back seats. The drive was a 2 hour drive so we were in the car for a quite long
One Saturday morning I went out for my regular run, a run that was actually life changing for me. I always took the same route, because it led me to a nearby Starbucks but this particular morning I decided to take another route. This route was much longer and I didn’t run the morning before so I needed the extra miles. Taking this route I ran into something I always wanted but thought I could never have. I started my run later than usual which was something I didn’t do on purpose; I just wasn’t myself for some odd reason.
Before long I realized the time and that I was going to be late for work. So I jump out of bed and run around my house trying to get ready. After ten minutes, I finally head out the door and get in my car. Once getting to work, I get to my spot and start making food for people who are ordering. After our morning rush, I started to talk to my friend on the front line.
