Title Christian Munk's True Story
Description CHRISTIAN MUNK'S TRUE STORY Edna tl- Nielson 65 West 200 South Ephraim, UT 84627 Non-Professional division Third Place Anecdote On my father's seventieth birthday, April 4, 1951, Stanley and I invited all ny sisters and brothers to our home to a turlcey dinner. When we were through, I asked ray father to tell us something about his life that he hadn't told us before. He told us this story that even my mother hadn't heard: When I was a boy about fifteen years old, a man I knew gave me a gun. I went into the mountains to herd sheep with this other fellow. The coyotes, bears, and lions preyed upon our flocks, We were many times alerted by the noise of the sheep milling around in the night. So we would get up and with our loaded guns in our hands, we went out around the sheep to scare off the intruders. One night we heard a loud noise. The man told me to go around one side and he'd go around to feel my way around, I was so scared. Kneeling down and putting my gun on my knee, I shot. Then I went back to camp and went to bed. The next morning, I went out and followed my footsteps that laid a great big, black bear, I had shot it right between the eyes, and it had been just ten feet away from me. Now that is as true as I live. 42
