Let the hunt begin
Coming into this hunting season I really wanted to explore the spiritual mechanics of hunting. Because I thought that by pulling back the vale and the subject that is really a game of life and death.
Would provide those of you around camp who get turned off by the way this sport sometimes gets presented on social media, and stereotypical projection of hunting. With this series I could open you guys up the freedom that comes with heading out into the field on one of the most ancient acts in mother nature.
The act of hunting is about way more than just the act of harvesting animals for food. It’s an act of celebration and connection. When we engage in the hunt we are honoring not only the circle of life, but also ourselves.
You see every single time that you put your boots on the ground you are placing yourself into the hands of mother nature herself. Since you have no way of knowing what sort of tests she has in store for you. I know that some of the television presentations of hunting make it look simple. But I assure you it’s not that easy.
When you go there in that mindset I’m going to have to put in work for everything I earn on that trip it does something special to you. It brings with it a deep sense of gratitude. With those feelings you find a whole new vocabulary in which to write out the story of life. Your boots hit the ground for that first step they are holding the feet of one person. Yet when you return at the end of the hunt it has someone new. Who will celebrate every aspect of the journey and lessons gained.
Last month saw the return of the Project Mindfully Outdoors podcast. It’s definitely great to be able to say that. After fighting off burnout flared after a lot of frustrations and figuring out all the upgrades that I have been working on bringing into the project.
In the past few months the website and the behind the scenes of the podcast have gone through their respective evolutions. I had to figure out how to employ them.
On the podcast front September saw us hit and blow past the big 200 episode mark. Running a schedule of seven episodes a week has been crazy to maintain but it has been so empowering to make it happen. As I offer the experiences I’m living and learning from. Both our community and the guests I get the chance to speak with are teaching and inspiring me. The circle of learning that the campfire and the platform provides has been amazing. If you haven’t had the chance to turn in, I would like to personally invite you to do so.
