I spend a lot of time writing, and I try to present a balance of optimism and reality. This is becoming more difficult as we are constantly bombarded with so many things we do not understand. Even more disturbing is to consider how much negativity is going on that we are not aware of. I’m no…

Did you know there is a verse in the book of Ecclesiastes the 1st chapter, verse 9 that says, “that which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done and there is nothing new under the sun.” NKJV. The Living Bible paraphrased says it this way, “history merely repeats it…

Habitat is a word 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 you live and/or hunt. As our population increases, houses will continue to take land that is the home to a variety of ani…
