Deer hunting is much like Real Estate

I can hear it already...How can you  compare the two?


Well, both take preparations, and precautions.

They both have a way of claiming success.


Although for many hunting is More about the chase than the harvesting.

I have followed a deer for nearly 2 mines in snowstorm only to take a dozen photo's.

Similar is finding the right home.  We have to search for our quarry and then see if it will work for our clients.


Real Estate is much like hunting for me, it is the chase that is the most enjoyable most of the time.


Many a deer has grown old because of a sleeping hunter!

Haha - good picture!  I hope it's not the way you hunt.

William Feela what a good tie-in to our industry, and another really funny photo.  Of course, there are sleeping Realtors

Morning William.

That looks like me back in the days.  Haven't hunted in decades.

Haha, that's a great photo.

I can see a lot of similarities between deer hunting and real estate including needing patience, needing a plan, doing scouting ahead of time (aka previewing/researching), constantly getting licenses, etc.

Do all of the chasing you want to do but make sure the freezer if full before the end of the season.

"Many a deer has grown old because of a sleeping hunter!"  That photo is hilarious, William.  Did you take it?

This is one way many deer grow to be old.

I myself have done this

And we have such good tools to use for the hunt. So glad it is fun too.

OK William, I now understand how you click.  We all have analogies that work, but do not often recognize the similarities.  Hunting game is actually a sport, whether you are using guns or cameras.  And the sport analogy is a good one.  Thanks
