Regranned from @chrisburkard - “It’s sometimes easy to lose track of the days, weeks & months - loose sight of where you’re headed & where you want to go. It happens to me all the time - getting too caught up inside my own head or deep within all the projects I’m working on.
It often turns out easy just to follow the path I’m already on, while being too busy to remember what I actually wanted in the first place or too scared to take chances - scared of going into the unknown and the unsafe. When you have been pushing your limits for a long time - your definition or normal becomes different from other people; what seems epic to others might just be everyday for someone else. And vice versa. Trust me, even in the social media world and as a creative entrepreneur, this happens all the time. Just take a look around here on Instagram - how often don’t you see talented people, posting great stuff - but at the same time safe, often something you’ve seen before.
It’s a trend, in part created by the modern day algorithms that surround us. Everything is being filtered based on what supposedly is right for us. But what the algo forgets is that we often need things that aren’t obviously right for us - those random & unexpected things that remind us to stop for a moment and rethink everything. These are the things that help us remember that there’s more than just one path - and that you always can stop for a moment and change direction.” - beautiful words from GUNNAR FREYAR.

So I was depressed I missed the ATA show this year so I had to make a funny. Willy D Broadhead missed everyone too. But on a serious note I want to thank @firstname.lastname@example.org@druryoutdoors@beyond_the_backcountry@officialbonecollector@bowmarbowhunting for bringing light to the hunting industry and being an inspiration to others. As hunters today we get a lot of grief on what we do and what we believe in. So keep up the positive outlook on hunting. You guys are awesome and I look forward in meeting you all next year. Be safe god bless and good luck hunting !
