From target practice to the hunt. 

There’s been plenty written about hunting season preparation. Can you hike two miles uphill carrying your pack without going into cardiac arrest? Has your rifle even been cleaned since 2005? Have you shot your bow since last season? These are all valid questions, but in our neck of the woods, one aspect of preseason prep gets overlooked: emotional preparation. Most of you probably stopped reading right there, and I get it. Emotional quandaries have no place during hunting season, right? As a vegetarian who got her first bow less than two years ago and aims to take her first deer/elk this season, I’m probably in a class by myself.
