My first whitetail deer harvested with a bow and arrow was a very special experience. I had been hunting with a gun for several years. This was my first year to use a bow and arrow for hunting. My mom purchased my first compound bow for me when I was fourteen. I spent many hours practicing shooting at a deer dummy and a fusion block to prepare for bow hunting.
I'm a half brother and I'm full Navajo. The Nez Perces were able to aquire hunting tags for a Bison hunt near west Yellowstone in Gardiner Mt. We have always been told stories of how our predecessors used the buffalo. Our religion and prayers songs are all passed down from the buffalo culture so it was especially significant for us to be apart of this. My wife is Blackfeet from the plains and it was a special treat to sit down to a fresh buffalo tongue and roasted meat feast with our children.
A few beers later and we were ready to hit the hay to take on the next day. I ended up driving back to Parsons with my Aunt, Uncle and cousin because my grandparents had no vacancy at their house. Before leaving, my cousin and I grabbed our rifles so that we could head straight to the field the next morning. I was very anxious, excited, and nervous; therefore, I got little sleep that night. I’ve been hunting deer for almost a decade and never once have I had the opportunity to shoot an eye-dropping trophy buck.
Have you ever had the experience to take your first whitetail deer with someone that means the world to you? Well I have to fill you in on that, when I was twelve years old I was on a hunt in Autauga county Alabama which is also known as Prattville I got the opportunity to climb in the stand with my dad one evening on the hunt and kill my first deer. That evening it felt different than any other time I was getting in the stand, it was like I knew that something good was going to happen. First, I got ready back at the place we were staying (which just happened to be at a cattle auction in the room above where the auctioneers sleep at when it is auction season) then we all got in the trucks and headed to what is now the lodge to meet up with
It was mid September of last year when I overcame quite a large obstacle in my life. I had been putting up deer stands earlier that month, along with deer feeders, and game cameras. Well after I went to check my cameras I noticed a buck that showed up in a picture on the trail cam. By no means was he a small buck either! I kept seeing this buck that I nicknamed "crook horn" , because his horns were crooked on his head.
Katy Chalich Summary Assignment, English 250 H. Brunner Valley of the Gun: Summary Assignment Hunting in 2015 is different than hunting in 1957. The first major difference being hunting in 2015 is mostly for sport, while hunting in 1957 was mostly for meat. The excerpt Valley of the Gun is told from the viewpoint of a young Joe Bageant, who happens to be on his first hunting trip with the men: Grandpap, Big Joe, Uncle Toad, and Uncle Nelson. Throughout this excerpt we learn many things like what it was like to be a kid in Virginia in 1957, and how hunting brought families together. “…already I had seen family history made,” is a fragment from the beginning of this story which really shows how hunting was a big deal in his family.
Film Project #1 The Book of Eli In the movie The Book of Eli, the main character, Eli was on a thirty year mission travling across North America after the Great War. He had found a unique book on his mission that he carried everywhere he went. Eli kept his precious book in his personal bag that he kept close by protecting it for life. Throughout his journey, Eli is just trying to make it day by day and survive. The mission was not easy and he would hunt for animals he found and any source of water along the way.
Despite resistance from ranchers and other outside the park, the wolves have formed numerous packs and continue to thrive. Their reappearance in the ecosystem has affected everything from elk, deer and bear population to the plant species growing in the Lamar Valley. Nearly every change brought about by the wolves reintroduction indicates that the presence of wolves has created a healthier and more complete ecosystem. If I was a “fly on the wall,” I would follow around the released wolves in the Yellowstone National Park. Why?
The Red River Métis, along with many other Prairie-Plains groups, had a relied heavily upon the buffalo as a means for food and other products. There were two main hunts every year; one in the spring and one in the fall. The Métis had to travel a distance from their Red river settlements in order to find the buffalo herds to hunt (DeMallie, 2001). “Men, women and children all went along on the hunts, because they needed as many people as possible to transport all of the buffalo hides and meat back home” (Canada’s First Peoples, 2007). The entire Métis community took part in these hunts.
In this essay, I will share the hunting custom of West Virginia and how it would maintain from an evolutionary, sociological, and ecocultural approach. In West Virginia deer hunting customs take place every year. Everyone gets excited when time comes to renewing license and getting the equipment ready. The evolutionary approach is the theoretical model that explores the ways in which evolutionary end factors affect human behavior and experience
