I didn’t grow up hunting. I started after I got married as my wife comes from a family of long-time hunters. I’ll admit, the first season challenged me a lot (how hard could it be to aim and shoot?). I remember the first deer I ever harvested – it was a small doe and there will be a song about it some day soon.
“I’d Rather be Hunting” is the title track off my debut album. This song takes us through a Monday to Friday work week – a daily grind, because even those of us that love our jobs, we’re still working for the weekend. (That reminds me of a song I wrote..) Simply put – and I think most of you would agree – on any given work day of the week, I would rather be chasing deer out in the bush, fields, and hills than, well, going to work.
