Youth key to outdoors’ future
Kids growing up at the time I did had no problem getting involved with the outdoors during summers. It’s what we did. There wasn’t a X-Box or an I-Pod to be found anywhere. We didn’t need grown-ups or gadgets to provide our entertainment. We just grabbed a sharp shooter shovel and a Prince Albert tobacco can, dug us some earthworms and went fishing.
Today’s parents who grew up the way I did are usually the ones who see the importance of getting their offspring involved in outdoors stuff. They take their kids with them to the woods and on the water, allowing them to experience some of those valuable things that molded them.
