Three myself but been in on others kills in regard to being there helping and packing out. Also, been up close to plenty on scouting/hiking trips.

Edit: Also many years of not being successful were the keys to finally learning some things and being somewhat successful. With what I know now in regard to the animal and the area I hunt I feel I always got half a chance to fill my tag. As long as I am out there doing the work for those nine days the odds are at least one opportunity will present itself. Then it's up the hunter to close the deal.

Failures tend to be better teachers then successes if one is wise enough to recognize it

Thumbs up True enough Romey. The other aspect is loving it like nothing else. Some people like the idea of it until they get a taste of the work involved. For others the work involved enriches the whole experience and fuels the fulfillment it gives us. We're truly fortunate to get to experience it. Big smile
