You Think You Know It All?
I have been a journeyman lineman and worked on distribution power lines going on fifteen years. In the trade, we always say that you should never be to the point in your career that you think you know everything there is to know about your job. I also believe the same should be said about hunting. Whether chasing those thunder chickens in the spring or high in the stand in the peak of the rut, you should never think you know all there is to know about hunting. I am thirty five years old and have been hunting now for thirty some years. My dad taught me, as did most of yours, the principles of hunting. I've picked up information here and there along the way too, but not until the last few years or so have I ever really got serious about learning how deer live, where they feed, where they bed, what funnels they use and so on. Since becoming part of Antler Addiction, I have gained more knowledge about how to hunt deer than I have known my whole "career" as a hunter. Sometimes I have to stop and think, " it's very possible that I have lived half my life already, and I'm just now learning this stuff?" "Why didn't I want to learn this stuff before?" You have to be around someone that knows deer. Everyone knows people that hunt but I'm talking about someone that eats, sleeps, and breathes deer. Luckily, I get to be around a few of these type of people. They have changed every aspect of deer hunting for me. I feel as if I'm starting all over in my hunting "career". I'm very glad for the time I get to spend with the guys at Antler Addiction. I joined Antler Addiction because I loved to hunt and be in the woods, I loved filming my hunts to share with with everyone. I didn't join to learn how to hunt, ends up that these guys have made me realize that I have a lot of room to grow!Just listening to them talk and a few late nights up talking about how they hunt the woods they hunt, why they hung their stand the place they did, or why they access their stand the way they do, has made me a much better hunter. So now that I know I'm not a veteran hunter that I once believed I was, I'm like a sponge, soaking up every little bit of info these guys share! There are also so many resources out there that can help you along your way. Ten years ago you couldn't get on Facebook and talk with hunters all over the world. All these different pages and groups are loaded with people that are willing to share their knowledge of hunting. I've also learned that sometimes there are a few that were once like me and think they know it all! So ask yourself, "am I to the point in my hunting career that I know everything there is to know"? I can promise you that you, like myself, are not. I hope somewhere that there are a few people you can surround yourself with that truly have a passion for hunting and will share what they know with you. Be like a sponge and soak it up. I challenge each and every one of you to want to become a better hunter. This goes for any wild game you pursue. I can promise you will see more and much bigger game!!
