In addition there are many opinions of what is a successful hunt. What is the criteria? number of deer, inches of bone, how many deer, what? I really don't care about other peoples opinion of what kind of hunter I am, I only have to satisfy me. Labels only serve to separate hunters, not enjoining them. Hunting is not a competition between hunters, it is a competition between hunter and the prey so good and great are relative terms that are decided by people who were not involved in the hunt!
