This post is written by my loving husband… the hunter. He has been hunting with his family his entire life. 

Take it away, Luke…

I grew up on a cow/calf and corn/soybean/ alfalfa farm in little Walnut Grove, MN, home of the historical Laura Ingalls Wilder. Hunting has always been a part of my 4th generation family, and I look forward to returning every year to spend time with my family and a few friends. I also feel it’s vitally important to pass these traditions along, so I’ve been bringing my boy, Andrew, with me since he’s been 4 years old, just old enough to sit still for a couple hours, but he still needs to be carried out to the tree stand.
