Have you ever stopped and asked yourself: Why do we hunt?
There is more to the story than pulling the trigger…
For many of us, we don’t have the opportunity to pull the trigger every time we go hunting.
Heck, for most of us, we might not pull the trigger all season. Harvesting a doe to provide our family with food or manage the buck-to-doe ratio is very important, but let’s face it, sometimes that’s the extent of the action.
Bagging a big mature whitetail buck (or whatever you may be after) is not like what you see on television- “Hi folks, thanks for tuning in. Today we are here in beautiful… There he is! …BOOM! Thanks for watching folks.”
If you’re anything like me, you have sat in the rain, frozen your knickers off, been eaten alive by mosquitos, starved to death, cramped up, and [enter you own anguish here]…
Yet year after year, we keep going back. Why? What’s the driving force?
Other than a bagging that trophy, share the top three reasons you are hunter in the comments. Why will you be at it again this fall?
