Hunting correlation to the real world

Have you ever considered how the skills and mindset required for hunting can translate to success in other areas of your life? Hunting is not just about tracking down and taking down your target buck; it's about strategizing, adapting to setbacks, and pushing yourself to new limits. These same principles can be applied to your personal and professional goals, leading to a more fulfilling and successful life.

This is the main reason why I love hunting so much. Not only do I get to witness Gods creation firsthand, but I get to push myself and embrace the pain to become a better overall well-equipped human.

Strategize Like a Hunter

Just like in hunting, achieving your goals in life requires careful planning and strategizing. Whether you're setting your sights on a trophy buck or a promotion at work, having a clear game plan is essential. Take the time to assess the situation, identify your target, and develop a plan of action to achieve success.

You can't make this shit up. If you are a decent public land hunter, you can switch your perspective from hunting to your life. Exactly what you did to kill your target buck or that setup you planned to tag out on does, can happen in any area of your life. You just have to apply yourself like you do in the deer woods.

Probably the most important aspect of what I learned from hunting that is applied into my life on a daily basis is executing a plan. If you are a straight savage on them whitetails, take the same approach and execute your plans to achieve your goals.

Embrace Setbacks and Failures

In the world of hunting, setbacks and failures are inevitable. You may spend years targeting a buck only to have it slip away at the last moment. Similarly, in life, you will face challenges and obstacles that may seem impossible. But just like in the woods, it's important to persevere through these setbacks and failures. Learn from them, adapt your strategy, and keep pushing forward towards your goals.

This is the most rewarding aspect of hunting personally. Going through the tough times, the setbacks, the pain, misery, etc and coming out on the other side with a certain buck or perhaps a doe is a great feeling. It shows who you are and your character.

Stay Fit, Stay Sharp

Western big game hunting and mobile hunting require a high level of fitness and endurance. The more fit you are, the better equipped you'll be to handle the physical demands of the hunt. This same principle applies to life - staying physically fit not only improves your health but also boosts your mental sharpness and overall well-being. By prioritizing your fitness, you'll be better prepared to tackle the challenges that come your way. Don't let people bullshit you by saying " It's okay to be a little chunky" or " It doesn't matter how fit you are to be a good hunter". Although it may be somewhat true that your physical appearance doesn't make you a good bowhunter, but nobody likes being fat. Especially when you hunt only on public land.

" Well, who are you to say people need to be in shape". I was obese once, and now I'm getting to the point of looking good and ultimately feeling great. People that are fit will outwork you and outclass you in regular day to day life. Trust me, it's a good feeling when the opposite sex is staring you down and can't keep their eyes off of you while shopping for some damn groceries.

So, the next time you head out into the woods, remember that the skills you're honing in the hunt can be applied to all aspects of your life. By strategizing like a hunter, embracing setbacks and learning from them, and staying fit, you'll be well on your way to achieving your goals and mastering the hunt of life.
