I guess I have been preoccupied lately.....

“All I wanted to do was get back to Africa. We had not left it, yet, but when I would wake in the night I would lie, listening, homesick for it already."

― Ernest Hemingway, Green Hills of Africa

"I speak of Africa and golden joys; the joy of wandering through lonely lands; the joy of hunting the mighty and terrible lords of the wilderness, the cunning, the wary and the grim."

---Theodore Roosevelt, African Game Trails

What people don't understand is this is something that we only have in America.

There is no other country in the world where the ordinary citizen can go out and enjoy hunting and fishing.

There's no other nation in the world where that happens.

And it's very much a part of our heritage.

If St. Peter asks me what I want when I get to the pearley gates, I'll have a question for him: "do you have any pointing dogs up here?" If he wants to know why I asked I'll say: "I want to go where they went."

Crusty old Illinois river rat duck hunter -  to a young whippersnapper wannabe duck hunter.  OMG, that was about 55 years ago.  Yikes!
