Hunting Reindeer

While we were in Harlingen for Christmas, Norton was kind enough to take Addie and I on her inaugural hunting trip on Sunday afternoon, and she had the absolute time of her life.  It was a perfectly chilly afternoon, and we saw tons of animals.  The lease where Norton hunts has several exotics, so Ad saw zebra, Oryx, Eland, Kudu, etc.  We also saw turkey and deer and nilgai....this list goes on.  Of course, to Ad, everything that had horns or antlers was a reindeer, and we chased them all over the lease.  When we spotted them from the jeep, Ad would yell..."Go Get Them!", Norton would appease by stepping on the gas, and Addie would chant..."Faster! Faster!".  I had the best time watching how excited she was.  We ended the evening by sitting around the fire and eating a yummy dinner prepared by my dad who had been hunting with Trey for the afternoon.  I couldn't have asked for a better today and will store that trip in my memory banks for a lifetime.

The mighty hunters
