The Best Christmas Gift!

perchin on Deep CreekGreat gift ideas are tough to find. Sometimes, the best gifts are the simplest. Giving gifts that last a lifetime are the best ones. Here are some ideas for you to think about.

Priceless gifts are not about money. Think about giving the gift of your time and attention. Many great outdoorsmen and women have learned their craft through trial and error. Over a lifetime, they have become masters of their streams, forests, and outdoor haunts. What is the point in becoming a “Master”, unless you share your knowledge and experience with someone.

Give a hunting or fishing license as this year’s Christmas gift. This relatively small fee pays for outdoor places, access, and management. You also have 365 days to enjoy this annual gift! You can also use this gift to bring home great memories, a healthy attitude, and maybe a meal or two.  This gift will keep you fit both physically and mentally.

Now that you have welcomed others into our sport, give them the gift of a Guided Day of your time. Take a kid, friend, or one of your buddies wives or husbands fishing. Teach them how to shoot a bow, target, or critter. Introduce them to fly or spin fishing. For parents, outdoor recreation is an awesome way to motivate and reward their children.

The life message that hunting and fishing demonstrates is that there are rules, regulations, and guidelines that manages outdoor behavior. These standards also are reflected in everyday life as well. Kids especially need these examples. We learn how to act by example. Outdoor mentors can greatly influence appropriate and respectful behavior.

There is nothing more exciting than catching a fish, shooting a target, tagging a critter, or sharing these adventures with family and friends. This thrill and excitement is addictive and just gets better. In a world of the need for “Fast Food” and instant gratification, hunting and fishing fit the bill. The difference is that you will remember what you caught or experienced in the outdoors for life. I don’t remember the last fast food I ate.

The best part of the gift is the giving! I get more excited watching a student catch a fish, tag a critter, or enjoy an adventure than doing it myself. With each cast or trigger pull, the student is reopening the wonderful gift that you gave. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!

Merry Christmas,
