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.

    but, those call for a plug-in installing).
