I also wanted to mention that I said something during the podcast that I think may have came off wrong. It was in regards to the amount of time required to build those fundamental woodsmanship skills. I think that I stated that I felt bad for the older guys that were trying to devote a lot of time in the woods that had families and such. When I listened to it I didn’t like the way that it sounded. The point I was trying to make is that it does require a significant amount of time to develop those fundamentals and it’s hard when you have a young family. Much easier before that stuff happens . I wasn’t implying that’s what everybody should do or needs to do to be successful or improve as a hunter. Older hunters can certainly do that as well (just look at all the Beast killers) I just meant it’s easier when you’re younger before you have kids and are married because they obviously should and do take a higher priority.
Interesting I used that same piece to encourage another beast member. Because I think many times guys sit back and think that there is something they are missing...and reality it's just time in the woods. It helps to learn to set realistic goals.
You guys offered a lot of knowledge. Wisdom is applying that knowledge yourself. And that just takes a lot of time.
