2015 went by in a flash! I made goals at the beginning of 2015 for hunting and fishing. Some were accomplished and some weren’t. So here’s a look back at the goals I set and if I achieved them.
1. Get in shape
This didn’t end up happening with a move across the state and a new job shaking things up more than I expected. But I’m back to working on this goal now with a 5k coming up in March.
2. Shoot first deer
Yes! This one was accomplished with a doe shot on Decatur Island during late season.
3. Hike and scout more
Again, with the new job and move this didn’t really happen. I’m in a new area so this year I’m hoping to get out more and scout.
4. Go duck hunting
Nope, unfortunately. I tried several times to set up a weekend to get out with my brother but our schedules didn’t line up. He’s promised to take me out next season!
5. Go upland bird hunting
Nope — same reason as above. I feel like a broken record!
6. Fish More
Yes! I caught my first salmon and tried out surf fishing.
7. Cook Game Recipes
Yes, and I cooked some delicious ones! Meatloaf and steak oscar!
So the year didn’t quite go exactly as I wanted. But a new job got me back around friends and family so I’m happy with that!
Next week I’ll be posting my 2016 goals. Some 2015 ones I’ll try to make happen again and some new ones.
What were your 2015 goals? Did you accomplish what you wanted?
