Evolution Of This Blog


Thousands of years ago our ancestors etched messages into the sides of a caves, mountains or rocks - the ancient blogger.  Now we see it and wonder, “What’s this about?”  Since day one of Confessions of an Outdoorsman, I’ve asked myself the same question.  Today my purpose is to share things that will help individuals and families cultivate a greater interest in the outdoors and a desire to be there.  Why?  Because outdoor involvement stimulates a healthy mind and body, brings an appreciation that helps to preserve our environment, connects us with those from the past who once lived there in the harsh elements, and helps us, even to a wee degree to develop a bit of self reliance and many other healthy virtues.  My specialty is youth development and the shooting sports, but my experience base is very broad in outdoor education.  Week to week there may be topics on everything from trapping, shooting, hiking, navigation, star gazing and more.  It will always be clean and family oriented but, you can for sure bet to see an occasional yarn, tall tale or perhaps a critique on some aspect of our culture.  I hope you enjoy.  Photo credit: Don Gennero, 2009
