    Are you a goal setter? I am. I have found that planning, saving, and then executing the plan is, by far, better than dreaming. Dreaming is something you do while you're asleep. Hunting is something I want to do while fully awake!

    My goals include: 1) completion of the North American Super Slam as Chuck Adams did back in 1992. It includes 27 North American big game species, 2) I would like to shoot a a "good representation" of the species deer in all fifty US states, and 3) as an archer, I would like to complete SCI's World hunting Award. If you are unfamiliar with this program, do look into it. It is a great way to challenge yourself (you compete only against yourself), see the world, meet new friends, and enjoy the wonderful privilege of hunting. It is also a great way to give back as a conservationist. I assess my goals daily, weekly, monthly, and annually. By do so, I find that I continue to hone those skills necessary to achieve said goals. I know exactly where I want to be rather than wondering aimlessly without rhyme or reason.

    I would love to hear the goals you have set for yourself as a hunter/archer. Maybe we can help each other in the process...I am here to help and learn.

    The goal I have set for myself this year is to shoot the PG animals on my wish list while stalking with my bow in SA.
