What is the hunt all about for you?
What its all about for me.
Its hard to put into words what every year of hunting season and spending time in the woods means to me. An outsider could say whats the big deal? Depending on your environment your feet can get very very cold, your teeth rattle, and your body shiver. Getting up early, being up in a tree or on the ground before daylight, and not leaving until dark. Sounds glorious so far right? Some will never understand.
There is the near dead silence before the break of day. Then you with nothing else in the world but you and nature you watch it come alive as the day shows itself. The visual changes, sounds, smells, and emotional excitement of the start of the hunt. All the preseason efforts you put in to make this day and the ones following the best they can. Having the equipment you trust to make the most of the hunt. The beating of your heart trying to stay contained inside your chest when the moment is upon you. The overwhelming sensation once its over. A well earned meal for your family and maybe even something you can call you own trophy. Being thankful for what mother nature is able to provide. Passing it on to other generations to keep a way of life alive.
