On any hunting and fishing trip, someone is going to be very lucky, and someone is going to have no luck at all. If you hit the jackpot, do it with modesty. If you have nothing to show for your efforts, bear it philosophically, even if you get teased. If the person who has lucked out is young, and this is their first trip to the winner’s circle, be effusive in your praise: That is without a doubt the biggest fish/deer I’ve ever seen. Well done.
