Why do we get so excited when our friends text us their latests trail cam photos? It’s because they have a chance at an awesome experience. Why do we put so much collective work into putting in duck blinds? So we and our friends can have great hunts together. We’re thinking about the other person’s success. It’s a moment in our lives that we are successful in denying ourselves and placing someone else first.
I am a bowhunter, and I want to continue improving as a bowhunter, because every time I squeeze the trigger on my release, what comes from the bow is more than an arrow. That arrow carries with it so many of the worries and concerns, the cloudiness and confusion that my mind and body try to stuff away.
