It is time alone with my dad and friends and I would have never been a part of until the day I made the decision to leave the small town of Orange City and go to a new even smaller hunting town called Bedford.

All of a sudden, I hear crackling in the leaves. I look and look over the vast area and through the rows of corn but don’t see anything.
