We are going hunting tomorrow my father informed as he came home. Yes it was the time when I could see my father in action and how good of a hunter he actually was. I was very excited as it was going to be my first hunting experience. We had planned to hunt wild geese in a place called Baloki.
The next morning a thrill of anticipation ran through me as I opened my eyes. I quickly packed up and saw my father preparing all the huge guns for the hunt. So we finally departed from Lahore for Baloki. The way my brother and cousins had described the place made me eager to go there. That is why I had been irritating everyone by asking Are we there yet. After two hours we finally reached the river bank. When I saw it there were no words to describe it. It was as beautiful as heaven. There was a river bank from where you could see the blue water of the magnificent river Ravi. So after unloading our cars we finally setup camp and it was finally time to rest our legs. After a few hours of rest we took out our guns and started skeet shooting. I was very impressed by everyones aim. And I was even more lucky when my father came up to me and handed me the gun. As I held the gun I could feel my heart pump faster and faster. I had felt this extreme sensational feeling which was out of this world. Then I finally pulled the trigger. I missed the shot but still it was the first time I ever held a gun in my hand. I felt more of a man rather than a boy. I just felt great.
The next day we finally woke up and it was time for the actual hunting to start. So we went up to the site but to our disappointment there werent that many wild geese there. And after hunting ten it was time to leave. I was as angry as a bull. But then my father came up to me and said
There will always be next time so there is no need to be disappointed
Well then afterwards we packed up our luggage and finally departed back for Lahore. It was one of the worst hunts I have ever been to but who knows what tomorrow holds for us. View More »
