I introduced the topic of hunting to this forum in February (the article was called Confessions of a One-Time Vegetarian which attempts to give a balanced introduction on my own moral journey related to hunting). The onset of fall means that we are in full-on preparation mode for the coming season.
Dana and I have added to our family this week – he is too young to hunt this year and will eventually join me in the bush. Our main hope for Shaeffer is to be a good pal – I would far rather a great friend and poor hunter than the other way around. He is a Vizsla (Hungarian bird-hunting dog). He is named after the pond on our property near Huntsville (Shaeffers Pond).
We will update our journeys with Shaeffer as it relates to food. For now he is stalking his toys and living a life between crazy energy and absolute sleep.
