The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I could run the excuses on this one, but I just flat missed. It was 45 yards, which is kinda deep. And it was walking/running. I shot behind it. If I would've led it about a foot I would've killed it. Oh well. I still get to hunt more. It was a fun hunt, from 5:30 to 8:30 on the same birds. If it wouldn't have been so thick I would've had a great shot at about 35, but there were too many trees in the way.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
