Humility and Harmony

Many times when I pick up my bow I’m reminded of my first shotgun purchase as a sixteen year old. I’ve often said, I went into that store as a boy and left feeling like a man. My bow gives me an equal amount of manly pleasure. It’s not that I feel overtly prideful; it’s […]

Climbing Higher

Safety in the deer hunting world has made so many strides in the past few decades. I can remember when safety harnesses were not even invented and the only disclaimer on some climbing stands was ones that invoked its owner to “climb at your own risk”. Many hunters had accidents but it still surprises me […]

Waiting on the Best

It was only about 30 minutes after daylight when a doe and spike showed up under my tree stand. I had planned on putting some meat in my freezer and this doe would have been perfect, but I just couldn’t make myself let go of an arrow. I watched, waited, contemplated, analyzed, and still couldn’t […]

Made to Be

I’m blessed to be able to meet and talk to hunters and fishermen in many parts of the country. This club is made up of so many different people and from so many different walks of life and each is welcomed. I can honestly say these sports open their doors to men, women, and youngsters […]

Diversity not Division

This week I go back out on the road to speak to guys and gals who love to hunt and fish. I’ll be driving a 1,300 mile circle that will include Mississippi and Georgia before I come back home to Tennessee. Most of the time these opportunities are provided by local churches. Usually the format […]

We are quickly coming to everyone’s favorite time of year. The signs of summer’s close are the start of school, Labor Day, and another hunting season. Autumn in most states brings cool mornings and warm evenings. It’s the days that country folks enjoy the screen door and open windows. The air seems cleaner and fresher, […]

Trigger Mechanisms

It really is fun to watch hunters this time of year. We are no different than any other group or even species. I would guess that every animal or mammal has trigger mechanisms – those things that happen that tell them something else is about to happen. For instance, we know that certain moon phases […]

Uphill Battle

One of the ways to get a great cycling workout without going a long distance is to ride to the pinnacle. That may sound like a motivational statement but in my area there is actually a place called the pinnacle. It is within the boundaries of the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. It is a […]

Passion for the Outdoors

Hunting season is upon us again. In my home state of Tennessee, squirrel season opens at the end of August and dove season on the first day of September. This is a great time to introduce young and new hunters to the shooting sports. Many times deer season comes and goes without a single shot […]

Unsung Virtues

As a young teenager, many of my summer days were spent fishing at the local canal. I remember the unique art to catching carp using whole kernel corn as my bait. I also remember the little country store where I bought that corn. What I remember most about that store however, was not my corn […]
