Way to arm yourself and ideas to pass the time it takes for them to quite down is what I want to explore with you. I will also share my safely strategy with you in this article.
Grit and connection have become the two words I can define my 2020 deer hunting season by. Even though I am still chasing deer this year I want to share how those two words have shaped my time in the deer woods this season.
At this stage of life, I often ask myself, “is hunting my identity?” As I walk through the journey, I have been thrown into this year I have had to question every aspect of myself including my relationship with hunting.
A few years back I kicked off opening week with a private land hunt. Now hunting private land is a rare treat for me. So to set the lay of the land, this was a small chunk of land with a nice wood line that butted up against a golf course. Opening morning was hot and wet. Yes it was like a dam in the sky had burst and the repair guy was on vacation. Leading up to the start of the season deer were everywhere. In fact pulling into camp the night before I watched 3 or 4 does feeding and hanging out. However for the better part of the day nothing came my way and I just sat hunkered down in some dead fall in the pouring rain.
