True adventure is best shared with those closest to your heart. The Roberts Family embarked on a couple of hours afield in search of wild roosters and bobwhites, to savor the time spent together enjoying our rich hunting heritage, and soak in the fleeting moments of the upland hunting season until it opens anew.
The combining of these factors naturally inclines the experience to be a patient one even though your senses remain at a heightened level due to the anticipation of what might occur with each next deliberate step.
Will a bird or two or a whole covey rise up within shotgun range?
Will you shoot true when the opportunity presents itself?
Or will you simply notice a deer, turkey, or raccoon track that is faintly visible and show your entire family instead of plodding on top of the very spot that holds the treasured mark of game you will chase in a seemingly not so distant season?
Be sure to grab hold of these moments in life because just as hunting seasons surely can pass by without a single day spent participating so will the numerous opportunities to make memories with family if you do not remain purposeful.
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit” – yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
James 4:13-14 (ESV)
