I hunt my own little 25acres
That's about 10 more acres than I have, but I still do my best to put one or two in the freezer every year. Some days I go out and see nuthin' at all, other days I see a buck, but he's not legal to shoot. And some days I go out just to spend a quiet afternoon alone with nature - and get surprised when an 8 pt shows up.
But that's why they call it hunting - you have some good days and you have some better days. But to me it's spending the time . . .
