Interesting information on the growth of hunting in America, over all there have been some large movements in the self sufficient community. In 2007, the New Oxford American Dictionary selected locavore as the “Word of the Year.” “individuals who go afield for reasons of self-sufficiency and a desire for organic, local, chemical-free meat.” as explained by the Responsive Management (http://www.responsivemanagement.com/download/reports/Hunt_Fish_Increase_Report.pdf) a report conducted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Southwhick Associates. In this excellent article written by Ben O’Brien, Steven Rinella, Andrew Zimmern, and Georgia Pellegrini weigh in on why hunting is such and important part of our culture.

Writer and media contributor Jon Dykes of team Mission Alaska is onto something big in the pack rafting world. P-rafting is a revolutionary method of travel for the adventurous trekker, it has been said that p-rafts have changed the back country game.
These light weight rafts open up new country across the world previous inaccessible by foot by allowing users the option to hike in deep and float their way out. Very poplar among sportsmen enthusiast for the ability to handle relatively heavy loads with ease. Back country anglers have found these rafts very helpful accessing lakes, rivers, and streams by foot….One issue with being a back country angler in a pack raft is there is not a firm place to hold your pack, tackle boxes, rods, cameras, your catch, etc.
There is a solution to this….Jon an avid pack rafter and outdoors enthusiast recognized the need for a firm, lightweight, collapsable table compatible with all the various pack raft models. Starting from scratch Jon experimented with various materials and designs to come up with the perfect fit for his p-raft. Thus the pack raft table was born. Here is the story from his website (http://www.packrafttable.com/the-story.html) from the man himself.

Short, sweet, and to the point. Really cool double paddle bull harvested with a compound bow.
People hunt for many different reasons, some for the meat, some for the antlers or horns, and some for the pure benefit of challenging themselves. Rifle, muzzleloader, bow, spear, if it’s legal don’t discourage the method. We all enjoy the sport, tradition, and culture of hunting in different ways by different methods. For whatever reason you are hunting, please do it safe, responsibly, and ethically and ensure our culture of being stewards of the land as sportsmen sticks around for generations to come.
I personally hunt, as always, to fill my families freezer and eat the most healthy organic meat known to man. I also hunt for the adventure, its a great way to personally challenge myself. Harvesting a big bull moose will provide our family with many meals, the true value is not placed on the antlers but the several hundred pounds of red meat for the dinner table. Don’t get me wrong, a big bull moose looks great on the shed but you definitely cannot eat their antlers.
Cheers to a good hunting season this year.
Dreaming of big bulls and hunting season.
