Free knot guides, US army survival guide, MN Lake Finder to name a few.

Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

My Fishing Advisor. Brought to you by North American Fishing Club. Really helpfull in forcasting fish activity. Also Cabelas Recon Hunt. Gives you everything you could ask for for a hunting GPS and works in areas that you dont have service due to running off satellites. Use them both and are great tools. Fishing one is FREE, and Cabelas is 5.99. Both GREAT deals.

FOR THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR IT. FREEDOM HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW.
