In honor of full disclosure, up until I moved to Kansas, I strongly believed that hunting was the stupidest thing ever. Seriously. People with weapons killing defenseless animals. I didn’t agree with it. Didn’t support it. Didn’t really want anything to do with it. I realize that much of my perspective was based on growing up in suburbia and not being exposed to hunting whatsoever, but still…that is how I felt. Fast forward to my time in Kansas and BAM! Everyone is a hunter. In the past three years of being here, I’ve learned a great deal about hunting: how it works, the seasons, etc. And as a direct result, my interest and respect for hunting has steadily grown. A few friends agreed to take me out to show me how things work and I did my own type of shooting 🙂 I am super appreciative of those guys for putting up with all of my questions and my inexperience.

B. Davis – focused

B. Lacey – surveying the field

T. Wodiske – getting warmed up by going old school – Duck Hunt, baby!

I had a blast! Even though we didn’t find anything to shoot, it was just awesome getting outdoors and enjoying some time with the fellas.

Here’s my favorite shot from our day…

Not sure if I’ll ever be a hunter, but I can’t wait to go out again! Enjoy the pictures in the slideshow (especially of the doggies)!!!
