NMO's Guide to Staying Sane: Read an F-ing Book, By Nolan Osborne

You cannot control the animals, you cannot control the weather; you can only control your outlook and experience. Surprising as it may be to those who haven’t experienced it, but hunting in the mountains is often as much a mental challenge as it is physical.
