“If I had to choose one single criteria for choosing a hunting partner in Alaska, I would choose someone with a consistently positive attitude.
If you want to have a great time and increase your odds of success no matter where or what time of year you are hunting, hunting with a partner who can always see the bright side in life is not only enjoyable, but those kinds of folks typically keep going - even when things get tough.
Choosing someone who can maintain a positive attitude and hike a lot is a great recipe for a successful hunt.”
This is advice that I often give for pretty much all of the Alaska how-to content that I put out. I truly believe that it's good advice because at the end of every hunt, your partner’s attitude will always have a significant effect on the hunt -- good or bad.
I don’t know about you, but given the choice, I’d choose a good attitude over a bad one.
