I am addicted to hunting. I don’t golf or play tennis or hang out in the bars with my buddies. I hunt. When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting. When I am doing something my motives are simple, it is either doing something that will make a better life for my family (with me God and Family are always first) or to promote my next hunting adventure.
It’s my opinion that men were made to hunt. God put it in our DNA. Tell me the truth… Have you ever been driving around and saw a cow in a pasture and thought to yourself, wow, the way he is quartering away with his front leg a little forward, that would be a great bow shot, and if that was a bull elk could I make a stalk. Or walked out of a store and when you felt the wind, you instantly knew it was from the Northwest and it would be a good day to be in your favorite hunting blind. Or have you ever agonized over which Broadhead to use, fixed blade or expendables, or should I use my 308 of my 300 WSSM. Now, lets throw a trip to Africa into the mix. You think your obsessed now, wait till you have Africa to think about. My partner Cory and I are going to Africa in May. I’ve been several times but it’s Cory’s first trip. He is so screwed, he will never get over it. Tell me! Is this kind of thinking normal?
Yes, I am addicted to hunting and no I don’t need help. I don’t want help. I live to hunt. I crave a meadow full of Elk or a snow covered mountain with Bighorns working their way up the canyons and when I make it back to my dusty truck, I love to sit on the tailgate, light up a good cigar and ponder about some of Gods wonderful creations that have been so thoughtfully placed here for us hunters to enjoy. Whether I kill or not is not important. I have given everything to my passion and my passion is hunting and if your passion is like mine, it’s a passion to be shared with friends and family. So to my friend Cory. Lets go to Africa!!!!!!
If you share the same passion that Cory and I have and hunting consumes your every thought we encourage you to leave a comment below. We would also love to exchange stories of obsession so keep us posted on your thoughts.
May God Bless,
ps. Sometimes I like to fish as well. Today I went crappie fishing. Enjoy the pictures!
