Unlike a traditional story where fathers, grandfathers, mothers, and grandmothers handed down generations of stories, hunting areas, and even weapons, my story is a little different.
I had everything of the hunting life given to me, all BUT the personal experience of it. I was surrounded by the trophies, the stories, and even a letter from my paternal grandfather as he told me that the hunt was “In My Blood.” My heritage was ingrained in the outdoors.
On one side, I came from a family that was fiercely protective of a conservation heritage. I was descended from the first forester of the Sachsenwald in Northern Germany, the first nature preserve of its kind. My family was the first guardians of the forest and its creatures. They worked to ensure sustainability and maximize harvest. The other side of the family were hunter-gatherers, not by choice, but by necessity. During his lifetime, my grandfather hunted the far reaches of the world from the Siberian taiga to the African savanna of Mozambique, at times to feed the family and others to connect with with what he knew as a desire to be.
