Hunting is not glamorous.
99% of hunting is not about the kill but really about the Hunt.
It’s climbing hills in either very hot or very cold weather.
Getting sunburned and windburned,
Sprained ankles, thorns, splinters, slipping down mountains and rockpiles -sometimes the elements get you wondering why did I do this again?
keeping on the lookout for bears and mountain lions in the backcountry.
Getting up at 3am for the CHANCE of good hunt.
There are many times when hunting especially for big game you want to call it quits and for every day of success, there are many many days of disappointment.
Through all this you learn more about your will and yourself.
