A high tolerance for suck.

Steven Rinella, a popular hunting advocate and star of Meat Eater (love that show), said it best. He says he’s not the best hunter, nor is he the most gifted marksman. He has no overpowering physical strength or animal telepathy. The only thing that makes him such a successful hunter is his “high tolerance for suck”.

He can stay out in the rain, watching water drip through the freezing tent ceiling, and tolerate the suck.

He can be physically exhausted, out of breath, mentally tired, discouraged by progress, and endure it. Yes, it sucks. But he tolerates it.

In any other life, Steve should’ve been a homesteader. Because that personality trait seems to be the only distinguishing factor of our breed (other than, perhaps, a wild hair or two).
