Episode #14 – Preparing for a Guided Hunt

“How many times have you told yourself, Next year we will go on that vacation or when the kids are grown, or the best when I retire I will have all the time and money in the world.  And just like last year, this year came and went and you didn’t pull the trigger on a dream critter.  For most of us we still go hunting but we don’t really ever get to “THE BUCKET LIST”. -CHRIS BOWEN

You just blew out the lantern in your tent and there you are, checking a dream off of your bucket list.  Laying on a rented cot, in a rented tent, in the middle of the Alaska wilderness.  If you listen close you can hear your buddy snoring in the tent next to yours.

You’ve been traveling for two days straight and you know your not going to be able to sleep tonight because of the excitement of opening morning of your hunt.  The nerves are at an all time high as you try to relax and require your body to sleep.  Years of planning and the last two months of packing and unpacking your gear have brought you to Alaska and this moment.

What hunt is on your bucket list?

Now complete the story…  As a full time hunting consultant I talk to hundreds of people a week that have a bucket list they will never complete.  Not because it is to long or the critters they are looking to chase are too great, or even the cost associated with the hunt is to high.

The number one reason people don’t fulfill their dreams is there inability to plan ahead.

How many times have you told yourself, Next year we will go on that vacation or when the kids are grown, or the best when I retire I will have all the time and money in the world.  And just like last year, this year came and went and you didn’t pull the trigger on a dream critter.  For most of us we still go hunting but we don’t really ever get to “THE BUCKET LIST”.
