I didn't get an animal or even a shot but I learned so much! The importance of quality optics and hunting outerwear.
The better shape a person is in, the more enjoyable and successful the hunt. I got to meet new people and hunting partners. Quality people only add to the experience!
Learning a new game animal and way to hunt is so satisfying yet frustrating at the same time.
In short, a trip of a lifetime for me but with the promise of a repeat next year.
