Among the 40 or so family members I enjoyed time with at the beach recently were some babies. Now hopefully my wife and I are not eligible for birthing babies because that’s best done by younger people with more energy and less understanding of why some species eat their young. But seriously, I love babies, enjoyed being one myself, and our two daughters when they were younger.

I can remember my first solo deer hunting trip. I sat in a maple tree that was only about 50 yards from an oak tree that was flooded with acorns. The path to that oak made its way right under my tree stand. I remember sitting there in an old Baker climbing stand that thankfully was later stolen by someone while hunting in Alabama (they probably saved my life). Everything about that hunt was new. Every effort was my first. Every situation was a fresh experience. I had ideas and thoughts, but they came only from other’s experiences, and not my own. I spent those few hours looking at everything around me from different prospective and position.
