It's so funny how moments in time come and go and all the travels and conversations that take place in life. The quote below has stuck with me almost a year and a half ago. Not sure Mark will remember it or even our brief conversation it but the words did with me and I found them very profound. We are given a gift daily and should cherish and honor all the gifts we are given. Family, wilderness, friendships, all have a huge place in our hearts. Having the sense to honor those needs in an appropriate way (and growing manner) is the gift. I found this 23 minute film and quote to speak volumes to me. I just thought I'd share this here too.
"Kevin Root question to Mark, "Mentally speaking, what one tip would you give to help prepare for hunting in the remote backcountry?"
Mark Seacat "enjoy the moment"... you're really lucky to be out there... so enjoy it, leave the outside world behind, don't worry about the office... but definitely keep your family on your mind... coming home is the most important part!"
