Cooking in the snow

Definitely the most important thing my guide taught me when hunting was that if you do not succeed on the first try do not give up hope. The warrior way! We tracked deer all day to no avail and noticed some rabbits on the prairie, we decided to change our focus and managed to catch some rabbits. That way we could still feed our family’s for another day. True Apache way!

You learn to respect the animal much more and understand that it is nourishing a whole family. Its very powerful.
