Sportsmen and women who fish, hunt, and pursue other interests in the wilds of the outdoors experience true freedoms, contentments, and gratitudes not found in the lives of most people.
The sense of peace and tranquility we aspire to cannot be acquired unless respite is taken in the solitude and remoteness of nature’s overflowing bounties — the heights of mountains, the lows of rivers, the vastness of oceans. There is always the need to rejuvenate our batteries from time to time. The magnificent blue and green planet we call home provides ample choices for exploration and adventure. This requires time away from the typical and customary workings and duties of the day.
Come with me to share some unfolding life dramas afield and to review ways and measures that can make this world a better and healthier one for future generations to enjoy.
