Posted October 14, 2018 11:13:53After two years of intense hunting, my husband and I finally decided to take the plunge and shoot.
And for me, the decision was one of the most difficult of my life.
My husband was my best friend and I had a lot of friends.
The day we finally went to shoot, the news was everywhere.
The National Park Service announced it was banning hunting.
People were worried about what would happen to their animals if we were arrested.
I’ve been hunting ever since, but for the first time, I felt like I had to put my survival instinct on hold.
I had been thinking about the day before the shoot when I’d be alone with the rifle.
What if I was shot?
My husband and three of his friends had come to see me.
What would they think?
What if they were wrong?
The question haunted me for days.
I spent most of my time thinking about what I could do to protect myself.
Would I go home?
What would happen if I ran?
I was exhausted.
I wanted to feel safe and at peace with myself.
I couldn’t think of anything else.
My wife and I were both tired and stressed.
We decided to go to a park to shoot.
When we arrived at the park, I was worried that my friends would think I was crazy.
The ranger said we had to shoot the deer at the edge of the forest to be safe.
But, if I didn’t, it would be too dangerous for the deer to come back out.
I didn to understand why we were being told that.
I was in a position where my best friends were worried that they might be shot.
They weren’t, but my heart raced when I realized that I didn´t know how I would react.
When I got to the gun range, I immediately realized that we could still be safe in the woods.
We put down our rifles and got ready to shoot again.
As soon as we got in the shooting range, my mind raced with thoughts of what we might do if the ranger ordered us to leave the range.
What kind of deer might I encounter?
What could we do to prevent this?
We didn’t know how to handle this.
My stomach was racing, and I couldn´t stop shaking.
I thought about everything I had learned over the years about hunting and how to protect ourselves.
I realized I was really unprepared for this.
I got up and went outside.
My first instinct was to try to shoot as many of the deer as possible.
But I could barely get my gun into range.
I wasn´t sure what to do, so I started thinking about how to shoot less deer.
The next thing I knew, I knew it wasn’t the right time to shoot them.
I quickly realized that if I wasn’t prepared, they might try to chase us away.
So I quickly got down on my knees and started praying.
I needed to be sure that we were safe.
I started looking around for deer.
We had been hunting for the last two years.
We knew that if the range was closed, we would have to leave.
The last thing I needed was to run into some crazy person who would be trying to hurt us.
I also had to prepare for what I would be faced with if the deer chased us.
We were just about to head out for lunch when I heard a loud noise.
I looked around and saw a couple of deer running in the brush.
I could hear the rustling of the leaves in the grass.
I immediately grabbed my shotgun and started firing.
I kept my eyes on the ground and was not concerned that the deer might be shooting at me.
I felt confident that the hunters were on their guard.
I started aiming the gun at the deer.
I pulled the trigger and I felt the gun go off.
I saw a little bit of blood fall from the deer’s shoulder and I saw some of the bucks fall to the ground.
I heard some shots ring out and the deer turned around to look back at me with their eyes wide open.
I put the gun back in the holster and started to walk away.
The deer had been shot.
I stepped away and walked away.
As I was walking, I heard the hunters yelling, “Come on, come on!
It’s time to leave!”
They weren´t the only ones who were shouting.
It was a really loud group of people.
They were yelling, laughing, and cheering.
I knew that something had to be done to stop them.
My instinct was not to run away.
I decided to just go and see if I could get back to the truck and leave.
I walked over to the trailer and saw that my wife and children were sitting in the back. They didn´tt know what to think about what had happened. They told
