Shared this elsewhere, figured many here could relate: I've long said the reason why kids today just aren't interested in hunting is because society tells them if you want something bad enough or you just participate you'll reap the reward. Fact is hunting is FAR from this. In baseball if you bat .300 for your long career or better you'll likely be considered a great. In golf if you win the Masters just once, your name is immortalized forever. In hunting (especially specific buck hunting) there will be entire years where it doesn't come together...your goals go unmet and targets missed entirely. You'll get cold, wet and force yourself time and time again to get up early, stay late and do it all over again even after not seeing a deer for days. Then it will happen, sometimes in a mere 10 seconds...THE HUNT will occur. In mere seconds the entire year, or even years of defeat are pushed aside by sweet victory. Oh how sweet that moment is. It can recharge your drive to continue the pursuit to the next time, whether that be a month, year or a couple years...you want to experience that again. God bless all who read this...may you keep pushing and keep pursuing.
