At the end of August after target practicing, a lengthy "draw" process that determines if you get a tag, Teddy headed out to desert with his grandparents. After three days of early morning and late afternoon hunts in the heat, Teddy shot an antelope. He returned home feeling proud and accomplished with a story to tell. He posted on facebook about his triumph and a 6th grade classmate commented "that's mean"...Teddy's response was, "no, it's called success and providing food for the family".
I'm proud of Teddy's hard work and his understanding of where food comes from. I want to recognize the women in our community that also work hard and enjoy preparing for and participating in the hunt for the meat they eat. Meat that is local, organic, and sustainable. That is why Cowgirl Cash is again sponsoring a Big Buck Hunt. This year however, the hunt is for woman only. Stay tuned for details.
