Adam and one of his best friends took their first solo deer hunting trip a few days ago. They were both really excited but mom was a bit nervous. I had to make sure they had enough food and water for 4 days, plus a lighter "just in case." I'm such a boob!
They were only going outside of Horseshoe Bend - about an hour away. They got up early and left in time to make it to their hunting spot by daylight. They saw another vehicle parked where they wanted to hunt so they parked nearby and got out.
The minute they stepped out of their vehicle, they were verbally assaulted by 3 men in their 30s. Calling them "anal assholes" and a bunch of other 4 letter words asking why they were hunting in the same area. Adam finally said, "Before you get all nasty, why don't you ask us where we're hunting." So, one guy asked where they were going and Adam pointed the direction. The jerk said "Good, we're going that way."
And they all parted ways. I keep thinking that this could have turned out really badly. I wish Adam had gotten a license number. This grizzly mama would have run down the jerk and told him that he could have ruined my son's first solo hunting trip if Adam had allowed it to happen. As it turned out, the boys saw a doe but no bucks and had a great time. Why would 3 30-year-old men talk like that to 2 teenagers?
