Newcomer learning the ropes

As a brand new member to the LGO team, I am beyond thrilled to have experienced everything you see in season two. My favourite adventures include my archery lessons, and the pheasant hunt I participated in during the Taber Pheasant Festival.

With the bow and arrow, I loved the challenge of lining up my sights with the target - keeping my arm strong and perfectly still - and of course, remembering to breathe. It was a real thrill to discover that I had a pretty good shot. I think I recall Michael laughing heartily, not believing I hit the target dead on. He was probably excited for me to harvest something and then share it with him!

After being fortunate enough to harvest a pheasant, I really enjoyed preparing the game with a delicious recipe I had used in the past for chicken. Along with fresh vegetables from the farmer's market, I really enjoyed the meal I had prepared - all from local sources! Hopefully I will be able to participate again in the future.

Stay tuned for future blog posts!
