Why I hunt?

In short, I hunt because it’s the first place my mind goes to when I try to clear it. I was fortunate to be brought up in a family that embraced the culture and tradition of Wisconsin whitetail hunting. Although looking back, we were city dwelling, weekend warriors at best. I actually believe that’s what helped solidify my fixation on the outdoors and the hunt. I grew up in a crowded neighborhood. We truthfully only hunted 10 days on a good year, but my mind revolved around the outdoors for the other 355 days. I feel that longing is what makes me truly appreciate every moment I get in the woods and each encounter I get, and I believe it’s why I’ve chosen to be out there as much as I can. 

What tip do you have for a new

First off, do you. So many people follow the trends and I am absolutely guilty of it as well, but the most successful and unique content I create is the stuff that pushes the envelope of the hunting space and pushes me out of my comfort zone. Second, make friends and connections. This space is a heck of a lot smaller than you think. People are approachable, and they are often willing to lend a hand or advice. 

What tip do you have for a new hunter?

Contrary to content creation, stick to the basics. Pay attention to your scent, access smart, play the wind, stay on the freshest sign or intel, and live to hunt another day. Don’t go for broke until you have to.
