Thread: measure of success

  1. #1

    measure of success

    i got back yesterday from my first weekend on a new syndicate.

    after three nights in a boar seat (saw boar but no shot opportunity) and numerous stalks (when the weather permitted) my ammunition wallet was only missing one round.


    ...........but with that round i grassed my first roe buck of the season


    it got me thinking that a layperson might think that only shooting a rifle once over 3 days would be a failure!

    Aye, a layperson might but I wonder just what man hours per beast actual figures are. I've spent plenty of days and never even seen anything. Well done.

    Measure of success to me would be how much pleasure did it give you.

    As someone who only travels to stalking grounds that are less than 45 mins away what do/would you do if you shot a deer on your first day? Do you have chiller facilities or would you come back earlier to save the meat?

    DONT START

    ask a fisherman how they measure success!
    I have a successful day if I am out the house, peace and quiet and don't die from hypothermia!

    To me a hunting trip and not shooting anything is never a failure. I sat out for 6 nights before shooting a boar last Thursday. Not my first boar i must say. I saw boar several times but never got a shot. I did learn a bit more about boar habits though. Plus i saw roe, badger.

    Some years ago, the police stopped my car on the road while coming back from stalking. One of them asked me to open the boot. He saw the rifle, and the rest of the hunting stuff. Sarcastically, he told me that I didnīt hunt at all despite of my clothing, all the gear, 4x4, etc. I replied that I had been hunting from dawn to sunset and I had had a terrific day HUNTING by my own although I didnīt take a shot.

    For some people hunting (there is not a precise translation in Spanish for stalking) is just shooting. Probably that's one of the reasons they don't hunt/stalk...
