Hunting Heritage Quick Page Freebie

It's hunting season! I'm working diligently on a new kit called Hunting Heritage. Living in the Northwest, it's very evident that hunting is a family experience. It's handed down through generations. It's wonderful to see fathers and grandfathers sharing their knowledge and ethics in something that is not only a sport but a way to provide food for your family. Hunting truly is part of our heritage, not just in this country, but all around the world.

Last year my husband talked me into taking a Hunter Education class with our youngest son. I was very reluctant since I figured I'll probably never go hunting, but I must admit that I really enjoyed it. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to expand their knowledge of safe and ethical hunting practices. The part on firearm safety alone was worth going. Even having a house full of hunters, I found myself a little bit afraid of the rifles in our gun cabinet, I didn't know enough about them. After taking the class, I can now tell the difference between the different types of actions and I know how to prove them safe.

I was also amazed to find out that hunters actually fund the wildlife conservation efforts in this country. Hunters provide about $185 million per year through license fees nationwide and about $86 million from a tax (the Pittman-Robertson Act) on firearms, ammo, and all equipment. So the next time you complain about hunting, please realize that without it the wildlife conservation efforts would be at a loss.

Anyway, Hunters Education or Hunters Safety courses are well worth the time and in the State of Montana they're also free and run by volunteers.

And by the way, I did get an antelope permit this year. Who knows, maybe I'll even get one. I'm so thankful to live in a country where this privilege is still available to us.

Well, I'll get off my soap box and quit rambling now so I can show you the freebie. The kit will be posted soon so keep checking back.
