a life time of hunting memories
« on: December 27, 2013, 04:19:48 PM »
my story began some 57 years ago with my maternal grandfather,and his brothers who were american indians,born just  after the indian wars of the 1870s. they were instilled with stories and memories given them by their father and grand father of a time from the 1830s and onward. A time when their people lived off the land,and appreciated it.They relayed this to me,and for many years i have envied these times,and still do. longing for a simpler time without technology.
    the memories i have of them are wonderful,they loved the earth,and all the creatures within it had a purpose.My memories have been VAST,none greater than the times with my grandsons,o have attempted to instill within them this appreciation,and i can say they all love deer hunbting,and the outdoors.

I'm sure the camp fire at y'all's camp has been an interesting place to be a part of over the years PA.  I would love to just sit and listen to the history.

I'm sitting at the camp fire right now with my two sons and my dad.  Dad is in his mid 70's and is still able to do it.  Each year is cherished more and more. Im thankful he is still here for them to experience deer camp with. Some day they will tell their kids the stories pa bob has shared with them.

maybe you should write a journal.  It's easy to forget details over time.

michigan louie,i can tell u pap and his brothers taught me survival skills,most people have none today,if the grocery store closed they would starve,there is an abundance of food growing wild in northern woods,a variety of nuts,and roots,they also taught me how to make arrows and bows,and arrow heads,at one time i tanned my own hides. i was taught the sights and sounds,the different trees,etc,my grandsons were amazed when i could tell them a deer was near. its been interesting,but best is my never failing appreciation for the outdoors,the respect for it,and the knowledge none can be owned.I just love hunting,always have,i was born 150 years to late.
    let me attempt to tell u type in usda edible plants,then search by state,preferbably the one u llive in,if u have a lot of woods and temperate climate u will see that they have several thousand wild plants listed that are edible where u live. and by season,did u know most pine needles are medicinally good for ailments when boiled in water then drinken?not with the needles.just the liquid.
