“The Not-So-Secret Secret to a Full, Happy Life”
“In my wild and crazy world of over-the-top, maniac gungho rock-n-roll, I absolutely attribute my American Dream happiness, health and longevity to the inescapable discipline that is the bowhunting lifestyle. As I head into my 70th outrageous year on this good earth, all bright-eyed and bushytailed, cocked, locked and more than ready to rock the Glock Doc, very little has changed for me when it comes to priorities and daily routine. Respect my sacred temple and God-given gift of life, make smart choices to remain in the asset column for family and friends, earn my own way, live within my means, save for a rainy day, aim small, miss small, keep my nose to the grindstone, put my heart and soul into everything I do, perform my we the people duties to demand Constitutional accountability from my elected employees in this sacred experiment in self-government, help those in need and always give back more than I take.” – From Deer and Deer Hunting Magazine
*I would say that this pretty well sums it up, don’t ya think?
“Hunting is the Last Perfect Thing”
*One of the shorter and more subtle quotes from the champion of God, Guns, and Backstraps, not necessarily in that order.
I could not agree more. I would also add that it was probably “The First Perfect Thing” too!
It was kind of dark, another misty dusk.
And it came from the tangle down below.
I tried to remember everything he taught me so well.
I had to decide which way to go.
Was I alone, or in a hunter’s dream?
The moment of truth was here and now.
I felt his touch, I felt his guiding hand.
The buck was mine forever more.
Because of Fred Bear I will walk down those trails again.
Back where I belong.
Fred Bear, I’m glad to have you at my side, my friend.
I’ll join you in the big hunt before too long.
From The Fred Bear Song by Ted Nugent
“If Elvis Presley had been a bowhunter, he’d probably be alive today.”
