Hunting with the Next Generation
Spending time with our kids in the woods is second nature to the families of the outfitter and guides of Sarvis Prairie Outfitters. It is what we do, it is who we are and it is what we love. It is how we were brought up, it’s how we bring our children and grandchildren up, it is just another way to spend quality time with those we love. We can only hope our passion for the outdoors continues with not only our children but also those children who we have been entrusted not only to guide but share in their hunting experience.
It’s About The Hunt
A Lot of emphasis these day’s is put on the kill, of course it’s what sales hunts, magazines, clothing and equipment etc… but truly it is and should be about the hunt. It’s about the experience, the teaching and the quality time away from everything else going on in the world, more than anything we want to have fun. Whether or not we get that trophy shot at the end of the hunt, each and every hunt is special, it is time well invested in our youth and ourselves.
But When We Do Get A Trophy Shot
When things come together and we are able to get that “Trophy Shot”, I think that sometimes if not always we more excited than our youth hunters. Well, I know this to be true for me, whether I’m hunting with my daughter, my nephew or any youth hunter in my past, but I’m confident that this holds true for Gary, Mark, John, Mike as well as most of my other friends with kids. We are simply bursting at the seem, text’s flying as soon as we have service, Facebook posts and cell calls from anywhere we can get service as quickly as we can. Just last week, I got one from Donnie, a past hunter with Sarvis Prairie Outfitters, who’s boy had just shot a great wild boar in California. I had the text photo even before he had the guts rolled of that old boar. Gotta Love It!!!
So here you go, here are a few photos of our kids from seasons past, I hope you enjoy!!!
Rocky Mountain Elk, Mule Deer, Gobblers & Antelope
Time Travels Fast, The Present Is Only For An Instance
So whether you choose to hunt with your children like we do or it is some other hobby, because hunting may not be what they enjoy. Take the time to be present in the moment, with your kids, because before you know it, those days will be in the past. Leave yourself and them with enjoyable memories. Happy Hunting in 2013, I hope we share some time together in the woods!!!
