I have had several task that have need to be accomplished, but there is one that has stood out to me. My main task that I still struggle to accomplish is finding the right amount of time to work on the passion project outside of school. The most interesting thing I have learned recently is how to make a buck grunt and doe bleat with my mouth and hands. I learned this from watching instructional videos as well as reading blog posts from others trying to learn as well. The purpose for this research is to carry as little with you as possible when you go hunting. This is my main task that I am having trouble accomplishing and the progress that I have made so far.

The progress on my passion project has gone very well for the past few weeks. However, I have had some difficulty researching my two topics. One main challenge that I have is that I hove only trapped a few times in my life, but I thought it would be an interesting topic to research. The fact is that I don't know much about trapping and the terms used on most research site. This makes researching the topic very difficult for me. However, I have come up with a solution for my problem. I have decided to only research the hunting portion of my passion project. Hunting is one of my favorite things to do that I am heavily interested in. This is the decision I have made and I will do my best to retrieve information.

Hunting and trapping has been the source of food for many people for thousands of years, and has become more of a sport these day. In the early stages of time hunting was done by moving slowly on foot and sneaking up on the animal you are trying to kill with a bow and arrow, the most popular weapon at the time. Trapping, on the other hand is slightly more difficult start, but easier in the end. The difficult parts of trapping are finding the right location, and finding the right bait for each type of animal you are trying to trap. The Aristides part of trapping is killing the animal, because a trap is a very lethal way of killing. I chose this topic because I like hunting very much and would like to try trapping.
