I love hunting the Midwest. I've been going there for several years and look forward to it each year at this time. Not only do I get to see some friends that I have come to know, but I get to chase some really big bucks.
When I look back over my years of deer hunting, I see how much I have changed. I can remember the first time I arrowed a doe. It was also the first time I followed a blood trail, and the first time I ever field dressed a deer.
Have you ever wondered about wonder? I mean have you ever thought why you attribute beauty or awe to certain things? Have you ever been amazed how a large tree can grow from the tiniest crack in a massive rock?
I've always prided myself on trying anything once. Now that doesn't mean that I throw all caution to the wind and do things like swim with alligators, but generally I'm game for giving something a first shot.
Whether you are on the water or in the woods, if fish or game is involved, so is scouting. Just because your boat is in the water, doesn't mean all you have to do is drop a line in order to catch fish.
