Ok so I was sitting at home and I get a call from my brother inlaw. He asks if I would like to help him spot some deer for his hunt comming up. So I said sure. We went over to the reservation and got me a tresspass tag. And away we went. We spent 4 hours on only part of there designated mountain. And I seen more big bucks, bull elk, buffalo, and moose than I have ever seen in my life! This was all in like a 80 mile spread. We got to his lucky spot he says. And with in the hour and a half we sat he glassed the biggest mullie I have seen in my life! This guy is a freak!! His main beam was like a dang pepsi can. And elk bugeling all day. What a day.but the coolest thing is my brother said he would never take that buck. He said its a gift from father earth. And he needs to spread his life to other doe to make it a compleet circle of life. They take what they need no bigger than enough to feed the family for winter. Made me really think about my expectations of my elk hunt. Vary impressed.

Sorry I got carried away. The moral of this story was the natives hav probably the most beautiful land and animals I have ever see. And I wish I was one. So I could spend more time up there not just to hunt. But just embrace the land.

There are many "life" lessons that we can learn from Native Americans.

"So I could spend more time up there not just to hunt. But just embrace the land."

This would be just one of a very long list (in my opinion).

I am 1/4 Cherokee and since we moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota I have felt the sacred spirit of the land. I "recharge my batteries" every time I go outside. This place is special. This land has been sacred to Native Americans and the white man is ruining it. Habitat is being settled more and more. Predators are being eradicated and deer populations are running rampant. People are feeding deer in the city and than they complain that the deer are eating their flowers. The natural way that the Native Americans lived was to keep the balance between man, predator and prey. Everything has it's place. When we hunt, we use every part of the animal that we can. We even brain tan the hides, and use the bones for tanning hides. We save the fat that we cut off the deer to make tallow candles. The antlers if we get bucks are used for buttons, and we save all the sinew for sewing the buckskin into garments. We live a simple life, and all the game we shoot is used, roasted and smoked turkey, canned venison, ground venison, sausage, brats, ground pronghorn. The Native American way of life is the simple way of life and though it's not for everyone, it works for us.

That's great that you had an an awesome exp. on Native land. I think it's universal across the country on Natives beliefs and values of Earth and it's great bounties. But on another note, it's not going too good here if you are an NA in New York. Lots of bad things brewing with treaties and the state.
