This blog post is meant for one reason, and that's to get you to think, and then act upon that thought. So technically two reasons. Take a second, and think about yourself as a deer hunter at a high level. What have you been good at, and what have you consistently struggled with? Chew on that for a little while, and then think about this past season. What did you do better than in previous seasons? How did you get better? Was it because of continued learning, or did you make it a priority to get better at it? Finally, I challenge you to grab the nearest piece of paper and writing utensil, and write down one thing you want to get better at next season. After you do, think about what you can do over the summer months for that goal to materialize.
Action Is Important: Want and action are two different things. In order to improve upon anything in life, whether that be getting a promotion at your job, being better at a sport, or improving as a deer hunter, action needs to occur. If you take the time to write down that one thing you want to improve upon, that's half the battle. The other half is figuring out how to get that to happen. The only way you will improve, will be for action to happen. Whether that's studying trail camera pictures in more detail, shooting your bow more often, doing more prep work in the summer, the action behind the thought is what will change things, and ultimately make you better.
Make It Happen: So this summer, make it happen and improve. It doesn't matter if it's a small improvement, or a major improvement, but go out there and do it, whatever that "it" is. Don't be afraid to fail, and don't look back. Think about it, write it down, and make it happen. You'll be happy you did.
