In the mid 70's I lived in Michigan my parents moved north from the big cities. I was 12/13yrs old. I had a snowmobile license, youth hunting,
fishing, trapping license. School had a class called conservation and we learned how to shoot a bow, set animal traps, and shoot a 4/10 shotgun. Also
about growing crops and trees and weather patterns. Really interesting stuff. Drove my snow machine about 12 miles to school now and then the same as
the other kids. I walked thru town with my 22lr over my shoulder, had my own chain saw, fished all nite with my cousin for bullheads, got chewed up by
blackflies, bit by a snapping turtle, had girls that could tear you up in a snowball fight, ect........ and loved it all. The children today are
missing out on how to be independent, it's a sad thing. My father trusted me and he would say.....don't make me come looking for ya.....and he never
had to. I'm still alive!!!
