There is no place I would rather be than somewhere in the woods.
As a kid, I loved going in the woods. I would spend the summer going to a property about a mile from our house. This place had cow pastures filled with blackberries I picked, rat snakes I would bring back to the house and dove and quail that my friends and I hunted. These are wonderful memories imprinted on my teenage brain!
My grandfather lived in a small house way out in the sticks with a pond in the back yard stocked with largemouth bass and blue gill bream that no one fished but me. It was a magical place for young kid. I was about 10 years old when I caught my first large bass and I was hooked!
My friends and I started deer hunting when I was 17 but we had no idea what we were doing. We didn’t have the internet or You Tube to help. I went hunting maybe ten times and never saw a deer. As you can understand, I lost interest in deer hunting.
I left the outdoor life for about 20 years then eventually came back full circle to what I loved when I was young. I think I am a better deer hunter now. (I actually know where the kill zone is). Now, it’s a great excuse to get me in the woods. I love sitting in a tree on clear cool October morning as the sun rises casting its light between the green, brown, yellow and orange colors of the trees. It’s icing on the cake if I see a deer. Even if not, there is nothing like being there.
If you are one of us you know it!! So, hopefully if you left the outdoor life as I once did, you will come back again. Whether it’s hunting, fishing or camping/backpacking, I hope this site will help get you out there.
