No being starts out being a great hunter.

Right at the beginning, you are awful.

You do as you think a hunter should do even though you have never hunted anything before in your life.

You skulk, scope and stalk like a pro (you think), not realizing the prey can see (and hear!) you coming a mile away.

You think you are being so wily.

You can’t understand how your prey keeps eluding you.

But then you keep trying and you get slightly better.

You learn to creep and to crawl. You discover how to work the light – and the shadows – so you can see and yet not be seen, hear and yet not be heard.

Slowly yet surely, always keeping your eye on the (crispy, crunchy) prize, you sneak closer and closer.

And then one day, all that study and sweat equity finally pays off.

You open your fierce and ferocious fanged jaws and….CRUNCH.

Whatever is worth doing is worth doing 100% – especially on the day you finally bring down your first (crispy, crunchy) prey!
