Good Hunt

I apologize for the neglect I have shown towards my website and others. It’s been a long few weeks. Been sick. Been busy with work. The twins grow larger, my time away shrinks. Plus, I’ve not done a lick of good coyote or hog hunting when I have hit the woods.

Also, I’ve been working on a new project. I was hired by the local paper, the Lakeland Ledger, to helm the hunting section of their new website, PolkOutdoors.com. Money for writing about hunting – it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but the wheels turn slow!

Anyway, I’m there now, but I will not abandon my baby here. I’ll still crank out the stories and whatever else jumps to mind. They prefer newsy things of local interest; not my 2000-word rants and long-form style. Nice part is, I can still write that here and link back to it.

In all honesty, there’s pressure to perform. I want this venture to be successful – and make money! The Hunting World is large tent, and no one can do it alone. It is my intentions to reciprocate the love those of you have shown me here. If there’s a topic of interest or tips or photos you’d like to share, feel free to drop me a line.

So check out the new website. I chose to title my blog "Good Hunt,” something buddies and I say after almost every hunt. Or at least I do.

Thank you again, sincerely, for all the support. I would not have achieved this without you!
