Returning the Favour

Author: John

Location: Devon Hills

My Dad took me out hunting as a young bloke.

You learn a lot first up when you start out and then are left to do your own thing.

My Dad headed me in the right direction and then I found my own path and passion for hunting and fishing.

My Dad is now 82 and feels he is too old and unstable to do things on his own.

So, I purchased a boat and now I take him out fishing.

We are going to go Sambar (deer) hunting for a week on the mainland, and he is so excited about it.

Although he feels unsure about going hunting and fishing by himself, I know he enjoys the experience immensely.

And I am there for him.

These are the trips I will hold onto for the rest of my life.
