Challenges are nothing new within our DNA as hunters, nor are they new within our own lives. Work, family friends, all of these things present challenges in our life, it’s how we work through them that makes us successful – or not. Today’s whitetail hunter will face the common challenges of:
- Time – lack of time to hunt.
Access – not having access to properties to hunt.
- Pressure – overpopulated hunting areas.
To overcome these challenges we hunters must begin setting goals with a plan to achieve them. The idea of setting goals in life is nothing new to any of us, and should not be new to us hunters. Yet many times as hunters we set goals without any real way of measuring our success, or a proper plan to achieve them.
