There are many people who are hungry in North Carolina. This fact is the reason behind an organization named Hunters For The Hungry. It was founded in 1993. It is an amazing, non-profit organization which utilizes a very practical approach for feeding high protein venison to those in need. Everyone can be a part of this either by harvesting deer or making a contribution to the organization.
For those who counted R-S Central out of the Rutherford County Championship on the gridiron this year after a 1-3 start…last Friday night landed them in major contention again.

How do you relax?
It takes me a little while to unwind and really enjoy myself when I go to the beach for even a brief vacation. One trip, I made a new friend who helped me detox from working. My friend’s name was Austin.
Austin was 4 years old and loved playing. He worked his way over to behind my beach chair and started digging a hole. He kept grunting like he needed some help. So I turned around and asked him what he was doing. “I’m trying to dig a hole. You want to help? My name is Austin and I’m four years old and you sure are tall.”
What could I say but “Yes, thanks for asking?” Before I knew it, we were not only digging holes, but covering his feet with water as he stood in the hole. Next we built bridges up and down the beach. Then we had horse races that he consistently won…unless he fell off in which case I became a paramedic in an ambulance coming to repair his broken leg or arm or head. My imagination got quite a work-out as Austin helped me play and relax.
Discover your Austin today so you can Live Positive in this negative world.

While deer hunting is fun and can be successful during anytime of the season, there is really one brief period that every hunter looks forward to; the rut. It’s that time of year when bucks are the most active and when they are the most likely to be roaming around all throughout the day. Not only do we hunters look forward to that phase of deer hunting like no other, it is also the period we spend the most time planning for. If one includes the days of pre-rut activity, this whole phase only lasts about three weeks. That’s not a long time when you consider the length of the season and the amount of time that most people can actually be in the woods. Only T.V personalities can spend twenty straight days hunting deer. The rest of us want to keep our wives and remember the names of our children.
