For love and hunting

Hunting for Bridgette Vidrine may have started as a way to spend more time with her husband, but this hobby is now something she just can’t get enough of.
Vidrine said, “Although I have family that hunts, I hunted very little. My husband, Jonathan, on the other hand went all the time. That’s initially why I decided to start hunting. I wanted to be able to spend more time with him”
The dentist by day has now become a pro at switching from her white coat to camouflage to take down trophy size deer.

Miller’s memories

At Miller’s Lake, hunting isn’t just about shells, shotguns, duck blinds, and camouflage. It’s more about a tradition of long time friends gathering on the eve of opening teal season to cook good food, share in lots of laughs, and tell Miller’s Lake stories from the past.
The hunting club where it all takes place according to member Joffre Fusilier “is not just a hunting club.” He says “its a lifestyle.”
