In true fashion of preserving, there a few things closer to true tradition in the South than a good hunt.
As you probably know by now, I'm not quite what you'd call a hunter - but I can appreciate the Southern sport for what it is. A tradition that has long brought family & friends together in the field, for me a hunt brings about a sense of proper attire, hours spent leisurely talking & laughing, and at the end of it all, a feast fit for kings.
While I've been hunting before, this was my very first dove hunt. I enjoyed my day in the sunshine & boots, and while I didn't actually shoot any birds, I did shoot a few photos on one of the most beautiful summers-end days I can recall.
