Listen To Life

Life’s about the little things, isn’t it?

I spoke to a group recently, telling stories like this one while coaching them to listen to life.  Later I saw a man from the audience in the restroom.  He shook my hand firmly, looked me in the eye, and said, “Thank you for what you said.  I really enjoyed it and you reminded me of something that I might have forgotten.”

“What’s that?” I said.  I love it when people tell me their stories.

Outdoor Truths
Outdoor Truths
Habitat is a word that is used quite often in the world of the outdoorsman. If you have lived more than a couple of decades, you have witnessed changes in the habitat in the area that you live and/or hunt. As our population increases, houses will continue to take land that is the home to a variety of animals. There is no doubt that not only are we squeezing the animal population into smaller quarters, we are also changing much of the landscape in a way that drives out certain creatures and invites others in. For instance, there was a time in my area when quail were plentiful. Just about every farm would be home to a few coveys that would reproduce from year to year. Now, if a farmer sees a covey of quail, it becomes headline news to every hunter in the area.
