Deer hunting is a serious thing. In fact, we take it so serious, doesn't it seem crazy sometimes? This past weekend, I had moments where I felt like I had been defeated by deer, and moments where my excitement level was booming through the roof. Want to know what's even crazier? It's August 24th! Deer season hasn't even started yet, and I'm already experiencing the roller coaster of emotion that comes with it. I was hit with a fair amount of adversity this weekend (we all experience it throughout the season) and how you deal with adversity can play a large role in your success, and how much fun you have while chasing big mature bucks.
I am going to start unveiling a new series that I call my journal posts. These journal posts are going to chronicle what I am doing at that time of year and the major ups and downs that come with hunting mature bucks. I am going to bring the biggest of ups, but also the lowest of lows. Be prepared, as with the nature of chasing mature bucks, there will most likely be more lows than there will be highs.
