i haven’t shot/harvested anything since the spring. this has to be my longest ‘drought’ while living up here in kotzebue.
the fact that i haven’t shot anything and provided for my family is messing with my psyche. i am somebody. i am a hunter. i do provide. i am capable. even though i haven’t harvested from the land or sea in a few months, i still am very capable of doing so.
i have to tell myself these things nowadays. my years in kotzebue have been very good to me in respect with the access to animals and providing food for my family and others. its just that i haven’t gone hunting in months.
i cannot wait for snow. i plan to go out every weekend. well, i should say most weekends. haha
good day to you all. may life give you the satisfaction you desire.
