This is the final post in an 8-part mini-series chronicling my experiences in the 2012 Ontario Moose Hunt. You can find the entire series here (it will update daily as it’s published) or check out previous years (2009, 2010, 2011). The posts appear exactly one-week after they were experienced.
When we went to bed last night we were still unsure of the plans for today. Dad was considering hunting all day and I offered to stay for the hunt as the camp is small. The team decided to wait for the weather to make a decision. When we woke up to rain the decision was easy – we all started to pack up the camp.
I wish I had a list of profound insights or lessons from this year. Some years seem to provide such insights while others are more mysterious. I am certain that I’ve learned lessons – but also that I’m simply too close to the hunt to figure out what they are.
