What are you thankful for today?
It seems to me that a lot of the conversations I listen to are more about what people don’t like, what they don’t have, what they don’t agree with, etc., than about what they do like, what they do have, what they agree with and just generally what they’re thankful for. Focusing on these negatives causes your mind and spirit to attract more of them. When you focus on the positives, you discover more of them in your life.

The map showed 700 acres in famous Pike County, Illinois. And it was ours to hunt – 4 of us, that is. We had planned on this hunt for months and knew that we would be arriving at the prime time for the rut. The outfitter showed us where some of the best places to put a stand were, but also wanted us to scout the day before we were scheduled to hunt. The 700 acres were broken down into 3 sections; the east side, the west side, and the sanctuary which lay between the 2 and to the north. This was the animal’s safe haven. It was home plate. It was the place to reach after running the gauntlet of bows and bullets. And they seemed to know it was off limits to hunters. We could hunt on the edge of it and even on the thoroughfares that ran to it, but the sanctuary was the exclusive area for bucks and does alike.
