Maven's First Point
Maven pointed her first bird today. I cried.
2022 in Review: Pure (And I Cannot Stress This Enough) Michigan
It was a big, heavy year, but I can't in good faith say that it was trash (see 2021, 2020). I'm stepping out of 2022 feeling proud, happy, hopeful, and loved, which is a major improvement on how I felt one year ago.
Meet Maven. Maven is a nine-week-old German Wirehaired Pointer. Eventually she'll be my hunting partner in the grouse woods, but for now she gets to just be a puppy.
Today I shot and killed an animal for the first time. I've been looking forward to this moment for so long that it almost feels uneventful. Certainly overdue.
