Hunting Brotherhood

Christopher Lowman

I took a small buck this year. What makes the story special is my brother. He is an Army Chapla

in, serving his second deployment in Iraq. While he’s gone I have his firearms, and I was using his rifle when I shot this buck. I had literally just finished cleaning the deer when my phone rang, and it was my brother! The first words out of his mouth were, “I hope I just blew your chance at a buck.” For the next 30 minutes we talked about my hunt, and it was great to be able to share that moment with him half a world away.
