Brett Favre's rookie (deer hunting) season in Colorado
“Man, what happened to all the air?” Brett Favre asked the writers at Outdoor Life magazine as the group climbed a 30-degree incline through 6 inches of fresh snow outside Granby.
The magazine's "Big Buck Zone" writer turned to look at him. “I thought you pro athletes were supposed to be in shape.”
“Hey, I only move fast when I’m being chased by someone who weighs 300 pounds, and that’s just for 5 yards at a time,” Favre said.
It seems Favre, a lifelong outdoorsman, signed on as a spokesman for Remington a while back and finally got to put that relationship to use with his first hunt Out West. Hence, his visit to the Rocky Mountains without a stop at the ol' Mile High.
Favre says he's not a trophy hunter, but enjoys the challenge. "It comes down to how patient and how vigilant you can be if you want a five- or six-year-old deer," he told the writer. "They don’t come easy. But it’s also the peace and solitude, and the chance to get away from everything. There’s nothing like it.”
It's a good read if you like a hunting story. (If you don't, suffice to say the group helped cull the mule deer population.)
