I grew up in the small town of Natchez, Mississippi spending Friday nights on the football field and Saturdays and Sundays in the woods. For a teenager in a town this size, entertainment is extremely hard to come by. Each week is filled with school, homework and practice, but on the weekends, I head to the woods where nothing is ever predictable. Each Saturday and Sunday, I get up early and make my way to the camp. It does not matter if it is turkey, squirrel or deer season, I have always had a pure love of hunting. For me, there is no better feeling than the adrenaline rush you get when a trophy animal finally emerges itself in the clear which creates a perfect and clean shot.

    A Tradition Passed Down From the day I was able to sit still long enough to sit in the deer stand with my dad, I was nearly always there with him, right by his side like a miniature shadow.
