Do you hunt to compete with nature or other hunters?
trdtnlbwhntr said:I hunt to compete in every sense of the word. I compete against technology and the powers in the world that unknowingly dull my senses. I compete against my own ability to be captivated by a woodpecker, a squirrel chasing another, hearing the honk of canadian geese overhead, thus keeping me from being alert to other things in my immediate surroundings. I compete to maintain a heritage that put the instinct to hunt in me. Everytime i hunt i compete with stress and i always seem to be more relaxed when im 15 feet up in a tree watching the sun fall behind the magnificent colors of the fall foliage. I hunt because i cant think of any place that puts me closer to being exactly who i was meant to be. Yeah we all compete to be happy and to take every adventure into the outdoors as a new lesson or memory; honeing our skills to become better predators. I hunt because it makes me feel right inside... not to compete with a whitetail or joe thats three ridges over. IT just makes me feel like im in exactly the right spot everytime.
