Little boys just make it all that much more enjoyable.............I had two. One love to hunt the other loved to fish, so we were out all the time, its just that Mom wanted to do other things but her boys always talked her into either going hunting or fishing. Funny thing was my oldest loved to flyfish while the younger one does very little fishing. The younger hunts and reloads while the older even though I gave him a .222 never hunts but goes flyfishing at least one a week. That was the only problem when we went fishing the one wanted to go hunting and while hunting the other one wanted to go fishing.
They are both married now the Hunter lives back in the Mts with his wife and hunts and traps, while the older one works for Orvis as an fly fishing instructer and Guide and is on the river all the time.
They both have a love for the outdoors because when younger we spent so much time camping.
Man that is awesome! I hope my son really enjoys hunting and fishing too! Sounds like The Lord has blessed you with two fine sons! My Dad always had me and my brother hunting , fishing , and shooting. That's what we all did together for fun and still do. Awesome!
Where are you from? Raise up you boys in the way that they should go and they will not depart from it.
Caleb my youngest, well, not to young anymore he is 27, asked me if I would start Trapping with him, Mom told me that if our son asks you to do someting with him you do it . It just means that he wants to spend time with you. That's my advise, no matter what your son wants to do spend time doing it with him, for a son that's his way of know that his Dad loves him...................I had to kind of juggle things as one wanted to Fly Fish and the other one Hunt, but the thing they both loved was camping and so we wore out a 12x12 wall tent and camped summer fall winter and spring. We had a wood stove in it and it made for a lot of memories.
When they were small I would read Pilgrams Progress to them......................
Greg I'm from Chesapeake, Ohio ( directly across the river from Huntington, W.Va.). It sounds like you and your sons have had some great times. It has reminded me of my brother and I when we were little! We believe in the Word of God too. We will teach it in our house hold. Where are you from?
We live in Sparks, Nevada right next to Reno. We have lived here forever and we love the Desert. The Desert grows on you and because its so vast and open and has so many Mt ranges we find it hard to ever think of living any other place, in fact we feel really closed in when we are someplace with lots of trees. We love driving on a dirt road for 60 miles and seeing no buildings telephone poles but just mts and open range land lots of wild horses Antelope and plenty of Coyotes and Chukar .....................My boys and I are very thankful that God has allowed us to live in a place of such vast openness and beauty, each and every time we camp out in the Nevada Outback we appreciate what we have ...................Its funny that so few people go out into the Nevada outback yet because of that there are so many times when we camp for a week and never see another person.
Greg, God is good! It sounds like you live in a fascinating place! I've got to get out there some day and hunt. I've done a bit of research on hunting Nevada. I was wanting to put together just a coyote hunting trip one day. It sounds like the best value. I love being from Appalachia! We have a lot of good hunting and good people. I'm fortunate to love where I can hunt Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. However, the west seems to have so much adventure! I really loved Wyoming last fall. Have a blessed day!
