Hunting "Haiku"

Went out after work today with a buddy to thin the prarie dog herd. Try to "save the prarie."

No really exciting story. This wasn't "set up a bench in the midde of a sea of PDs and shoot till the ammo runs out". This was "walk from den to den, glassing as you go, take a shot or two at a den until they stop coming up, then walk to the next den".

We prolly walked 2 miles. Each got our share. Good talks. Good scenery. Watched a thunderstorm rolling in, and made it back before the rains. Made some satisfyingly long shots from offhand, kneeling and sitting positions. We were only gone about 3+ hours. It was a short, but satisfying hunt.

So if it was so short and simple, why does is feel so deep-down enjoyable?

It's deep-down enjoyable 'cause the whole deal ties you back to hundreds of generations of hunters and to the land itself. It's even stronger, for me, when the "return home" is to a campfire way out in the back of nowhere...

I shoot for pleasure.
Gun powder is better than
Strings and arrow shafts.
