Their fondest memories, were always of the grueling 12 hour hike back to camp, packing a heavy bear hide, the wind blowing the tent over and having to sleep under a tarp, eating nothing but candy bars for a couple days, because we elected to try and stalk a bear to far away from camp to make it back, watching two bears roll down a mountain fighting and causing an avalanche, or many other experiences they had on the hunt, that had nothing to do with killing their bear. It seamed the more obstacles, we had to over come, and the more miserable the condition, the better the experience, and the fonder the memories. Of course, I had experienced plenty of hardships, making the hunts that we had good weather and easy pack jobs my best memories. I have read this three times and I'll likely read it another three times. It's fascinating. Thanks for shining your light king fisher! 5 minutes ago, Team9nine said: Got a chuckle and thought of this thread when this picture came across my feed this morning 😉 CATCH FISH, NOT FEELINGS I'm greedy. I want to catch both. See me running to launch my canoe: 1 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
