The Measure of Success: a black-tailed deer hunt

Próis Hunting and Field ApparelThis morning I took to the woods under a cloak of darkness. Silently, I found my place and nestled in to sit and watch the forest wake around me. With the sun’s first rays I listened to the birds sing and held hope I would successfully fill my tag.

Unfortunately, the grey ghost of the forest, the black-tailed deer, eluded me once more. Although my tag remains unfilled for now, I do not measure this morning’s hunt as an unsuccessful outing.

Any day I can explore God’s creation is a success in my book, and today did not disappoint.

How do you measure a successful hunt?

Does it matter if you fill your tag?
