The Philosopher Stage of Hunter Development

As many hunters mature and gain experience, they look back on a lifetime of hunting and find that what they enjoyed the most is not one single thing. Instead, it’s a combination of many things. Hunters in this stage might enjoy simply getting out, and taking an animal is not nearly as important. They enjoy passing on their knowledge to new hunters. These hunters judge success by how they feel about the entire hunting experience.
