I BELIEVE I have found my calling.
At age 62 it may be a bit late in life to be finding one’s calling, but as they always say, better late than never.
Actually I found this particular calling many, many years ago, but even though I have long tried to convince people of my abilities in the field, I never was able to produce conclusive proof until last weekend.
The field of which I speak is the great outdoors, and the calling is the adept and expert manipulation of calls intended to fool such critters as ducks, turkeys, elk and deer.
I have had just a one-time experience in trying to call in a bull elk and, seeing as how my one and only elk expedition to New Mexico saw me return with an unfilled tag, it might seem quite evident that my calling efforts left something to be desired.
