if you spend any time on the cabin threads you know that I have land in Alaska and I am building on it. My motivation initially was to be a resident and hunt sheep on my 50th birthday. Last week I turned 50 and the cabin is still several years from completion.
i have sacrificed most of the last 10 hunting seasons for the cabin, 2 or 3 weeks a year to build instead of hunt. I am beginning to wonder if I have made a mistake. I won't be able to get around forever. While I kill fewer and fewer animals, I still REALLY enjoy being on the hunt. I am afraid that 10 years from now the cabin will be done and most of my physical abilities will have declined to where a solo hunt for sheep, or anything, would be unwise.
We got power last year so I expect the process to speed up but I still worry about what I am missing. Anybody else dealing with a similar decision? Wanting to offer thought or advice?
