I have some folks that I use to do alot of hunting w/ but don't get a chance to much anymore. Some of these individuals have based their life happiness on their personal accomplishments as hunters. I've seen it effect their personal lives to an extent. When I hunt w/ a individual I've either invited to hunt w/ me or vise/versa I am just as happy to see them score as if it were me. This has really been botherin me lately cuz I used to spend all my time hunting w/ these people and now they just bring me down when I am around them. Their attitudes are contagious and I think having a positive attitude while hunting is a must and actually increases your odds of success. You have to believe in yourself and your spot. I think they have let their hunting "Social Statues" govern the way they hunt and they feel that killing a "Big One" is expected of them. When hunting gets to that point for me I'm done. Sorry a lil vent!!
