Bereket Graves - Louisville, TN (home country:Ethiopia)
10/31/15 - first deer - 53 lbs - 0.5 yr - 20ga shotgun (single shot) “Bereket, commonly called “Bear-Cat” now that he lives in East Tennessee, became part of the Graves family through adoption in 2010. Since that time, his love and passion for the outdoors has grown." tremendously. Bereket enjoys all things outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, camping, birding and wildlife photography. Hunting has proven to be an instinct rather than a ‘sport’ for Bereket, as it is for most good sportsmen and women. Thanks to all of the TWRA and ORNL staff that helped make his first deer harvest a possibility!”...Chris Graves
