I read the July/August edition of the Ducks Unlimited magazine a couple of weeks ago. There’s a story that’s had me thinking ever since.

Passing on the Tradition” is all about how hunters need to get young people involved in the outdoor sporting activities. If we don’t, there won’t be people willing to support conservation, wildlife, and hunting for future generations. As we all know, part of hunting license fees go to protect public lands. Plus without new hunters there won’t be a funding baseĀ for groups like Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, Quail Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Foundation, Trout Unlimited, and the many, many other fine organizations that support outdoorsmen and the habitat of the game we are interested in.

My earliest experiences in the outdoors were with my father. He took me fishing and taught me how to hunt. Those are prized memories.

Be an example to a young person in your life. Take someone hunting and fishing.
