As Hunting Season nears....

We all know how this time of year effects us all. New licenses, phone calls to other hunting buddies, reliving old memories and hunts.
I sometimes wonder as memories flood my mind of all that has past me, loss of buddies and family members, where will it end. So many, many years ago there seemed too many people to keep up with in this sport. So many choices where to go, who to go with that year. And now I look around and ask myself why do I do this?? Maybe as we get older we start to understand when our father and uncles sat around and talked of the old days, people they missed, times and events that I wasnt there to see. Yea, I sure do miss those guys. I oftened wondered what it would have been to live in their world-so people oriented and ours so internet divided. Sure we have more gadgets then they ever had to go hunting, but we have lost something they had... I guess we're to spoiled to appreciate a simple cabin in the woods, too many farms to hunt small game, a full week of deer season, your favorite gunshop and that long drive to deer camp after thanksgiving.But we know why we keep doing this- its in our blood and always will be. So bring on the new season and all its challenges and we'll make more memories, good memories.

Re: As Hunting Season nears....

Its funny how, when my grandfather was alive, I didn't realize what it meant to hunt with him and family and now that I'm basically alone, I miss all that.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

I think all of us more advanced in age miss the older times. We had it great and hopefully modern hunters will experience some of our times in the future.
