Expectations...by matt keller on 10/11/10
I used to scout daily so that when it was time to hunt, I could expect limits. I used to think of myself as pretty darn good at that too. I was often disappointed when a "limit spot" didn't produce a limit because of poor shooting or bad weather.
It's truly amazing how hunting with kids the past few years has changed my expectations. I do still scout to have an opportunity for a great shoot but now, more than ever, I have come to expect smiles and laughter. For some reason missing ducks, farting and shaking a kids Coke up so it explodes has become much more entertaining and fulfilling than leaving the field with a full limit. Their facial expression shares my thoughts...we both want more of it.
Thanks for being a part of what KO is all about.
