Up Your Aspiration

In hunting there is a relationship between what you aim for and what you get. Those who set their sights for bigger deer generally harvest bigger deer. Those were willing to settle for less get less.

However, there is a downside. While the hunter with high expectations will harvest more and bigger bucks over the long haul, they will also suffer from more failed hunts. The caliber of buck you are seeking may not exist where you hunt. Often, aspirations set too high can prove to be counterproductive.

In hunting, as in much of life, it is difficult to tell the difference between high achievable goals and goals set so high they are doomed for failure.

“ Harvesting the big buck is not the goal, but rather the result of doing things right.”

A visit to your local taxidermy shop can give you a good idea of what is considered a trophy in your area. It probably isn’t a wise idea to set your goals any higher than the average mature buck in any given area.

With all this said, one of the quickest ways to harvest bigger bucks is to up your aspiration.

Good Luck and Good Hunting,
Jim
