Life's Lessons learned on the mountain hunting fam style | Cedar City, Ut
I heard the saying the other day about if you visit a barber shop enough times, eventually you are going to get a haircut. I like to apply that to hunting because I believe if you visit the mountain enough, eventually a bear is gonna cross.
We leave the house each morning with the belief that we are going to catch something that day. Pulling the kids out of bed at 3:30am isn’t easy, but the memories we make push us to do it time and time again.
Teaching them to get back up and try again no matter how many times you fail. Eventually success with come and the failures get you one step closer. A lot of life’s lessons are learned on the mountain and time is well spent with the people that mean the most.
Don’t give up. Learn with your dogs along the way and make friends along the way. Life’s too short to always be in competition. Build a community around you where you all help each other learn.
The deeper we root ourselves into the hound world, the more the people we meet become life long friends. We want our kids to learn by the example we aim to set of true sportsmanship and perseverance.
There’s always going to be someone out there with more experience than you. The person that seems to be catching something every time they go out, but there’s also the person that isn’t and they look to you to keep pushing them forward.
We are still learning, we are teaching our kids alongside us. We still doubt ourselves and our skills because we haven't done this since we were kid.
Regardless of feeling though we are falling short at times, we load up that box + fill up the truck to head out again in hopes of finding our success.
Chase your passion with relentlessness and eventually you will succeed. This is something we hope to teach our kids and we hope to inspire you to do the same.
