Example text

Given his tremendous experience with both game and clients, this was no surprise. But anyone who knew Finn, and the outfitter he was working for, was also not surprised when he very shortly got fed up with the hunting ethics (or lack thereof) he was dealing with. In the spring of 1980 he was doing his own thing, guiding for free-ranging mouflon, aoudad, and a few other species from that sprawling ranch house near Llano, Texas. We had a great hunt. I took a nice mouflon, I guess, but with his Kenya experience and his own personal code of ethics (which, I would learn, were quite rigid), nobody ever made Texas exotics hunting as much fun as Finn Aagaard.

TO MY FATHER I had a tale told to me of times I do not know. They fell from lips of dignity as pure and white as snow. They hovered ’round the candlelight on softly moving wings. They shone and sparkled in the night and spoke of wondrous things. And though my eyes would heavy grow, I’d fight away the sleep. I’d sink into the candle glow, these stories mine to keep. And they were spun from silken thread, adventures, loves, and quests, Woven through with streamers red with strange, intriguing guests.

It was strange to think that I had taken a life. But we did it fair and square, our skills against her wits. I don’t know who was prouder, Far or me. “Thanks for a good hunt,” he said. I agreed and thought I understood. We returned triumphantly and took the obligatory “first deer” pictures. My mother is a very good cook, and those deer steaks were especially tasty. So much had changed since those early carefree days. I’d grown up, gone to college, joined the Marines, moved to California, got married, and started a family.
