Proud Hunter Moments

© By Othmar Vohringer

Today I would like to share with you two proud moments in my hunting career. As most of you are maybe aware by now, a good part of my time is dedicated to the introduction of young and new hunters into our way of life.

This is Terri Lynne Benoit, sister of noted outdoor writer Toby Benoit. She took part in the junior division of the Florida State Turkey Calling Championship hosted by the National Wild Turkey Federation
and Bass Pro Shops in Orlando, Fl. She made it to the second place.

Corey, one of the many novice hunters that I have “Godfathered” over the years, sent this picture to me. He tells me what a proud moment it was when he harvested his very first mule deer buck. Well, I am mighty proud of him too. The only regret I have is that I could not have been on his side and share this moment with him personally.

A great feeling to get someone started in something and then actually see them accomplish that goal and knowing that you had a part in it.

Very cool. Keep it up Othmar.

I think this is great Othmar. It is nice to see people who put there actions where their words are.

Congrats on seeing your time and efforts come to fruition! Thank you for keeping our heritage alive by devoting your resources to the next generations. I'd say that this post falls well within the WATG category!

Arthur – It is indeed great feeling and yes I will keep it up. My message is simple. First I want others to enjoy the experiences I have in nature. And second, each person we get into hunting or at least understand what hunting is, is one less person that can be swayed against us by the antis.

Kristine – Lol. My father used to say, loosely translated from German to English, “If you want things to get better don’t just talk about it but do it otherwise you run the risk of being a hypocrite. I guess this stuck with me.

DeerPHD – I am flattered that you think that this falls within the WATG category. I was very fortunate to be born into a hunting and outdoors family but there are many that are not as fortunate and yet they still would like to take up hunting if they only could find somebody to show them the first steps. It isn’t really that much work or time consuming to take someone along on a scouting trip or accompany him or her on their first hunt.

It is my hope that others get inspired by this post and make the small effort to take someone along the next time they go out in the woods.
