Heimbuch says part of what made him want to try hunting was to experience another facet of his role as patriarch in his family, which had recently gained a third child. "I was looking forward to the idea of eating something that I had procured," he wrote. "This felt historically appropriate, like the uncomfortable shoes worn by employees in Colonial Williamsburg. Learning to hunt was not just about bonding with my relatives or feeling like an adult. It was about feeling like a provider."
