……. My “deep thoughts” of the day ;)….
You are competing with YOU…. & maybe the deer. You aren’t competing with guys in FB, Instagram, even your buddies & even your neighbors. Your time will come.
Be happy for those that shoot a giant. It’s rare & as humans it’s easy to go “man, that dude shot a giant, I’m jealous!” The guys you see that do shoot a giant- for each one of them there’s a million that don’t. But don’t even give that your mental energy. Relax, hunt, take time with yourself & your friends & nature.
To the % of you who will take this advice…. Your season will be better if you can figure out a way to set any jealousy aside & truly be happy for other successful hunters. The successful hunter will be YOU at some point (hopefully this season!) & you want folks happy for you when it happens. You will have a far more successful season regardless of what happens if you can progress in this mental aspect of this great time of the year. Return the favor in advance & be happy for the rare occasions someone shoots “a big one”.

Jealousy ruins people.

It’s a deer!!!!! This is fun!! Life is short!!!! We have very few seasons to enjoy!!!! I had issues with this as a young hunter. I have grown with age…. Jealousy has no place in hunting & I promise you, after 30 years of doing this with passion…. You will far more enjoy this season with a peaceful mind, enjoying the hunt, being happy for others, not worrying about what is posted on FB, IG, here, anywhere. Enjoy my friends. I wish you all the most enjoyable & fulfilling hunting season as possible!!!!

Proverbs 27:4 tells us, “Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood, but jealousy is even more dangerous.”

Exodus 20:17

“You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.”

Philippians 2:3

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

Proverbs 14:30

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.


Good luck, be safe & grow as hunters in all sense of the word. & ya- I’m stoked to see you guys shoot some bigguns!!

It is going to be a good fall!
I really enjoy the pursuit of a trophy buck, but I’ve come to realize the habitat improvements, planting apple and oak trees,food plots, cameras etc.. are almost getting to be more fun overall .

Great exercise and in a sense a really fun hobby ! The addiction is very good for the body and mind (in my opinion)!

Sharing hunts with family & friends is as good as it gets ! Sometimes just shooting a doe and dragging it out with your son or buddy ranks just a notch below with a trophy hunt now . You change as you age !

The best part is time with family and friends. A nice buck for the group is celebrated for sure, but I never lose sight of the opportunity to be with those I love. Perhaps I'd feel differently if I were doing solo sits for days on end
