    Great story. Hunting really is about getting down to the simplest truths of life. There is either success or failure, life or death. There are no consolation prizes. In the woods the trivial is left behind. There is a single-mindedness of purpose, shared with those around you. Hope, joy, unspoken love, and sometimes disappointment – but never for long. The experience always makes up for any lack of game on the meat-pole. To have never hunted is to have missed one of the simplest and most natural joys of life.
