   Maybe the quick hunt and money involved is not so great for our future. I will think on that.  What are the impacts to the hunters? What is society gaining or losing as a whole?

   May just be that a person who respects life enjoys life and is a better person for it. I will also add that self sufficiency builds an amazing amount of character and a whole amazingly new outlook on life. This is true wether you live in a city or tiny populated area.

     Know people in cities that did for themselves and people in villages that lived off others. Also vice versa. Family oriented folks seem to be more self sufficient.  No one seems to want to be a family or take responsibility anymore. I am guilty as well at times.

     I have experienced both lives in my short time on this earth. I wish the modern appliances did not apply to our lives like they do. It has ruined us as humans and hunters. Yes my prized wheeler is included in the modernization catagory, yet I get more enjoyment out of riding it to my areas than flying to them, more of a challange.

     The simple family principals have eroded as well. how many of us sit at a table to eat with our family anymore, I do not. I know why my parents did that.  Our we so fast paced in life that the simple and true meaning of enjoying life has eroded as well?

     Make sense??, Probably not!!! But ask questions and I or we will answer.
