HEB appreciates customersGOOD DOG!
I sat next to a stranger at a sportsmen’s club luncheon last week. I asked my tablemate if he was a hunter. He readily admitted he was, but then qualified it.
“I’m not a deer hunter,” he said. “I prefer squirrel hunting or maybe quail hunting. I grew up in Arkansas and prefer sports where I can move around and hunt with my dog, instead of just sitting in a blind waiting for a feeder to go off.”
I understood. Squirrel hunting was my first guns-port adventure. I had several fox terriers as a kid – great squirrel dogs. I enjoy sitting in a blind on a frosty morning and watching the darkness dissolve into dimness, and ultimately take on a little color as the first rays of the sunrise begin forming in the east. But, walking in the woods or hills with a dog brings out the best in hunting and the almost spiritual nature of man-dog bonding.
