It is good to chase worthwhile things

This is an older picture. 
I find that hunting is one of few things in life that actually lives up to the anticipation leading up to it. I love the solitude of being in the woods or on the barrens with only my dogs for company not seeing another human being or the trash that mankind generates.  I have paid much for this freedom in the country every fall. Being in the woods is not always pleasant, it can be hard at times with rough weather but it is worth something to me that I cannot put into words. There is not much better than being somewhere doing something that makes you feel so joyful in being fully alive.  Chasing career or money is not how I want to waste my life.
