Personal Narrative: Hunting: The Experience Of Hunting

Good Essays
It was a chilly, wind gusting day. Sitting in the dark waiting for the thrill of a lifetime to arrive. I can hear something crunching the leaves, walking right down the steep hillside. All I can think about is the deer that could be heading my way. That was the moment before the big buck, it was exhilarating to me because of my family tradition, the thrill of the hunt, and the reward I was about to take. Many traditions take place often, but mine only happens once month out of a year, November. November is the month that deer season starts with both bow and rifle.

The tradition for my family is the biggest part for me, with the thrill of the hunt, keeping me going, and getting the reward that shows why I
