A day away from the grind of daily life is always a blessing. Packing was easy since we were heading out on a short two-day scouting and hunting trip. One of the side benefits of hunting is strengthened friendships and we had friends coming in from Wyoming to help with our feral hog problem here in Oklahoma. and we wanted to be ready, know which fields the hogs were hitting…and yes, maybe put a few on the ground since we knew the focus would be on our friends hunting when they arrived.
One time, when I lived in Wisconsin, it was below freezing but the water hadn’t frozen over yet. I went one step too far and got pulled under in chest waders. I had to drop the waders, swim to shore and hike out in frozen clothes just to sit in the truck in my skivvies the rest of the time. – Pulsar employee (Name has been redacted to protect the guilty)
First responders, such as police officers and firefighters, have a desire to help others and serve their communities. That desire, paired with the exciting and often unpredictable nature of the work, is what makes them a special and unique group of people. First response agencies range from volunteer and paid to combination departments. Regardless of the structure of their makeup, they all have a common goal; to serve and protect the citizens of the communities they serve.
Hunting is not a sedentary activity – you hike through the woods, climb a tree stand, carry a firearm and the list goes on. Hunters sometimes must walk miles to find and retrieve game. When you consider what you carry in the field—long gun, ammo, calls, scents, snacks and water—your hunting pack can get heavy quickly. Not to mention hauling your harvest back out! Gear that lightens the load is appreciated.
