And the blog begins. . .


As you can tell if you have made it this far through my website, I am an avid hunter.  I especially enjoy hunting with my children.  Although I am also an avid writer, I am not an experienced blogger.  Nevertheless, I have created this website largely to write a regular blog about my experiences hunting with my children and what I and they have learned from those experiences, some of which is practical advice for hunting with children, but most of which is lifetime experiences with the people I love the most.

On May 19, 2008, I died of sudden cardiac arrest while working out in my gym.  Yea, I know, what a way to go.  I spend almost all of my free time outdoors and very little of it exercising and I happen to die in a gym.  What a shame?  Actually, it was not a shame.  It was a blessing.  My gym is equipped with a defibrillator and I was revived within minutes.  I always thought I wanted to die in the peacefulness of nature away from the trappings of modern technology, but at 39 years old, I am glad I died right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the technology world.  I still want to die in the peacefulness of the outdoors as long as I am seventy or so.

I relay this story as an introduction to who I now am and why I have created this website.  During my death experience and in my subsequent reflections upon that day, I realized that the most important thing in my life was my family.  I also realized that the best times I have ever had with my children were in the outdoors, especially the times I spent hunting with them.  I thank God every day for putting me in that gym just so I can remember everyday those times I had with them.

Through this blog, I intend to share my hunting stories with my children and hopefully inspire you to hunt with your children if you do not and hunt with them more if you do.  I also hope to shine a more positive light on hunting in general and hunting with children specifically.  Finally, I hope to teach life lessons and practical skills while learning the same from the bloggers who chose to post on my site.  Take Care of the Woods.
