It seems that as I get older and my son grows up I tend to find less and less time to be able to get out on the boat and fish. Between coaching soccer practice and then all the games as well as other after school activities life just gets full up and the time on the water starts to suffer.
Aren’t fish color blind? Or maybe I am confusing them with another outdoor creature. You certainly wouldn’t think that I believe that if you were to take a look in my boat and see the myriad of baits nestled away in their respective compartments.
In September of 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage 4A Head and neck cancer. At the same time while battling this horrible disease there were battles in my personal life that also took hold. My marriage was strained and it eventually ended.
As a resident of the great state of Illinois I have always been limited on what I can and cannot use for deer hunting. Illinois does not allow the use of centerfire rifles; however, I have always had a fascination with these firearms and broke down and decided to make a purchase for one.
For those of you who follow me on Facebook or have read a few of my earlier blogs know that I have had my struggles at the end of 2016. For those of you who don’t know I was diagnosed with cancer back in August.
This was a huge shock to me and my family. Fortunately I was told that my cancer would respond very well to treatments. However, the treatments were not going to be any fun and they are some of the hardest treatments on an individual.
