A few weeks ago I was asked to read a blog that was begun by a not-your-average TWRA supporter. Needless to say after reading the first few entries, I was hooked. Here I was reading the ramblings of what most of us on here would call a non-traditional wildlife user. What I learned is that we (consumptive users - i.e. hunters and fishermen) share a deep rooted love of wildlife with countless scores of others that we typically tend to overlook. Though we may not see eye-to-eye on every issue we often share the exact same ideals when it comes to wildlife, not only do we LOVE IT, we find that we NEED IT.

Recently, this person, who you'll read about soon, asked me to contribute to her blog to "lend credibility" to it. To this I actually snicker because you'll soon see she is far more skilled than I with her pen. I also recently learned that she's probably more skilled with an arrow as well.

Anyhow, if you're interested in following one of the most skilled outdoor persons you'll ever meet, I invite you to read and follow along at:

WildTN Blog

And apparently she's a guest speaker at this year's 'Vous!

Oh...I should add she's somewhat consumptive. ;\)

Very excellent read and not many people would be willing to get that close to a copperhead without harming it.

It's not that tough... and never as scary as one of the times I've come across a very angry timber rattler (which is far more often than I come across copperheads). Remind me to tell you about the time I was "bluff charged" by the black bear... it's one of my favorites.

Thanks - Daryl - for posting the blog.
