Stories—Every Hunter Has Them
If you tell a hunting story, be prepared to listen to a hunting story. Your listener might be motivated to tell a whopper, to top your story, or just to get into the game. Stories have always been a big part of hunting, ever since the first cave man drew pictures on a cave wall.
We still have a few good storytellers in our ranks, and Harvey "Bumper" Bauer is one of them. All the evidence you need is in his book The Old Man: Whispers Heard. In it, you'll see the evolution of a young boy growing upon his grandparents' farm.
