A Hilarious Look at Hunting Expectations vs Reality [PICS]

RMS Gear/Blogspot

Sometimes things just don’t go according to plan. Especially when we set our hunting expectations a little too high…

We all have different reasons why we hunt. Family tradition, necessity, profession (I wish), or just to put extra meat in the freezer.  I think we can all agree that the enjoyment becomes an obsession, and year after year we will be out there at it again.

When we do something often enough, like hunting, things are bound to happen; things that are unexpected, or perhaps just not what we had in mind.

Here is a list hunting expectations that we thought would happen versus the reality that followed.

“I’m going to train my dog to be the best in the woods.”

If you’ve been out there in the woods hunting for long enough, you can probably relate to a few of these scenarios.

You have to be able to just laugh and roll with the punches, because something like getting stuck in the mud isn’t going to stop us from doing it all over again next year.
