"Michael, at one time men were hunter/gatherers. We're drawing on those instincts." -Dave Richards

Today is the day that Michael became a hunter. Or rather, today is the day my dad decided to make Michael a hunter and failed miserably. He tried to teach him to elk bugle and I recorded the footage:

My dad has been trying to prepare Michael for this hunting trip for a few weeks, but I don't think Michael was quite prepared for all that hunting with my dad entailed. Those backpacks that they are wearing are filled with game bags. Which, I think, is a little optimistic considering Michael's limited bugling abilities and my dad's dismal elk hunting record. Michael's just lucky my dad didn't break out the elk urine...

I feel good about this hunting trip.


  1. Your dad has so many great one-liners. He needs to write a handbook for boys on how to become men.

  2. haha oh my gosh, i'm not going to tell him you said that... his head wouldn't fit through the front door. ha and then he would decide to take that idea and run with it, all the way to the publishing company :)

  3. hahahhahahahahahaha I love your dad and michael together. it's the best.
