Frist thing first. As of yesterday, I am officially OLD. I am now a grandfather to a beautiful little girl.
Now to the dream hunt. Years ago I had the same dreams as many here. Cape, Grizzly, Bison, Water buffalo, Ibex and so on, in all the exotic lands.
Now I hunt for meat (no longer chase the horns) and for the challenge. I want to go to hunts where I will be challenged to find the animal, track it, get close enough to take a shot. I'd like to start with the small 5 or small 10. These are "goat size" antelope, very skittish, hard to find in the grass and get a shot. Then I'll go to more challenging hunts, assuming my body is still able to climb mountains and track animals. Its not about the killing, its about the chase and the hunt.
Congratulations on your first grandchild! They’re all great…..but, the first always holds a special place.
If a grandchild automatically makes you old….I achieved that ”landmark achievement” when I was 39 ! First great grandchild at 61. My granddaughter took her “sweet time” having her first! 😁 memtb
