Episode 90 I Went Home Early So Let's Talk About It

A goal of mine for 2019 was to go bear hunting in an area I’d always wanted to explore. My window of opportunity was closing so I got the green light from my Wife and headed out this past weekend for a solo backpack hunt.

When I got there and my excitement wore off, I started to feel heavy. I was glassing this huge basin for bears as the sun was going down, but it just wasn’t doing anything for me. All I could think about was my little girl being tucked in at home and how much more rich this experience would be if she and my wife were here with me. Hell, even just a walk in the woods would be more enjoyable than what I was currently doing.

After exploring this feeling of wanting to be home, I realized that I just wasn’t feeling it that day. As the sun went down, I packed my things and hiked out in the dark.

This episode explores what happened, why, and what it all means.
