I've been sitting here alone this evening looking at family and hunting pictures.
My best tip for everyone and I'm sure most or all of you feel the same is to spend every moment you can with your children.
I have hunted, fished, and camped a lot with my two kids and tried to include them in everything I did but I can tell you now I wish there was so much more. My daughter is 21 and my son is 18 and I see them every day. My son is my best friend and we still spend a lot of time together but not nearly like before. You forget that they are going to grow up someday and start a life of their own.
Now I know how my dad felt when I first took off.
The four of us hunt together frequently and I cherish every minute. I have a grandson that is nearly 2 and I can't wait to get him started to follow in the footsteps of the rest of us.
Anyway try to include them in everything you do and hopefully your reward will be like mine when they call you up to see if you're ready for that next trip.
