Tuesday’s Tracking: DeerPhD

March 11th, 2008

Tuesday's TrackingI almost didn’t get the Tuesday Tracking in today! I’ve been having some trouble with my hosting service. They are experiencing some “growing pains”, and are having to move some sites around to different servers. Today, it seems, they ended up having to move all my databases, which is of course, what WordPress blogs use to run. But, I am finally able to sit down and write a bit…

One blog have started reading quite a bit is the DeerPhD. Bryan has a great site going, and writes some good thought provoking pieces. One feature that Bryan has had going for a while has been his “What Would You Do” series. Each post presents some dilemma that has confronted, or could confront a hunter. He then suggests several options for a resolution. These posts seem to generate quite a bit of discussion, and some show how there can be multiple solutions that could be considered ethical.

Bryan is working on his Doctorate (thus the Phd part of his blog’s name) in Psychology. He recently announced that he will be serving his internship in Kansas City, Missouri, at Children’s Mercy Hospital. Congrats on that big step. Maybe having a deer hunter in psychology field will help more people realize that the hunting mindset really is normal!

Bryan also has a good article about having the right kind of Mental Edge, and applying that to practicing with a bow. I know I need to get out more often, and practice before season comes in. My hope is to be able to join a club this summer and spend some time practicing with my son. I know we have a pretty good club close by, so we should be able to get out at least a few times per month.

Well, I hope you all enjoy the DeerPhD. It is well worth your time to head over there and read Bryan’s writings.
