Celebrate America’s Outdoor Traditions
Suggesting that we are fortunate here in America would be an understatement. Few people have the freedoms we enjoy every day.
With respect to the great outdoors, how many folks have the freedom to walk out across the prairie grasses, cut crop fields and hardwood timber to search for wild game on a regular basis? Some may lament the fact that they have quite a drive to reach hunting grounds. Or, they say they are “busy.”
A wise man told me once that we’re all “busy,” but what we decide to do with our time constitutes what that busyness really means.
Do a little research on how many places in the world can a person drive to the local sporting goods store, purchase a license or permit (assuming one has the proper hunter’s safety requirements), buy a gun and some ammunition and drive an hour or two the next day to hunt wild game. I am so thankful of the wide-open spaces, the rugged back trails and fields, the smell of the fall leaves in the woods, the fresh, crisp air, the sound my gun makes when chambering a round and the blessings of friends and family who tag along to chase after many things wild.
We all can pay tribute to the blessed lives we have by planning more hunting this season. Make time to celebrate the Great American Outdoors.
