Learn to be just as confident in the woods with bow and arrow than with a gun.

However, Hand Load a box of .308 , 20 rounds, and kill 20 deer with that box one box.

Stack hay proper.

Hang a gill net and use it to catch fish successfully.

Fill freezers with red meat, fish, and vegetables to provide for my family.


Shouldn’t have to try to be country, to be country.

Shook the milk bottle that was sitting on the table before getting a glass, or pouring it over cereal.

Learned the proper way to load a hay wagon.

Learned to stay out of the way of the hay elevator when loading bales into the hay loft.

True.

I will add stopping by an elderly shut in with a flat top to pick and sing a hymn or two on a Sunday.

And putting down an old dog you grew up with and seeing it to its final resting place.

I think it is more about attitude than what you do, it is a sense of community, a love for the land, a love for family, caring about your neighbors, a love for the Country, and the Lord. It is the ability to look at a problem and see how to make it better without relying on the Government to fix it. It is about seeing things as they are rather than how the media wants to portray them. It is about being able to make do with what you have.

As a kid the family great grandpa and his kids all the way down to great great grand kids made molasses, I remember dipping the cane into the final product and licking it off. Hauled tons of hay in the middle of the night by hand, went with grandpa plenty of times to throw hay from the back of the truck to feed cattle in dead winter.. also we would go to the lake my grandpa made, with my great grandpa to feed the catfish with hounddog dog food, he would pull up hono the horn and catfish would go rolling. I start throwing. I don't think he cared about actually feeding the fish, it was I was the only grand kid around of some kind and he wanted to do something to do with me. I would drive my old Honda XR 100 down to great grandmas to help her pick corn dig taters and whatever else I needed to do for her, to can after canning she would have me walk down in the cellar to store the items. I miss those days life is busy with a 10 year old and 6 year old never sit and think about them until something like this comes up, so thanks for that!

Salemtrapper..your great grandma thought a great deal..evident because she let you handle the canned goods. She had great faith in you.
Here if you helped put things in the cellar you were the (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman). Cause not everyone got asked to help with that chore.

It’s my attitude and I wouldn’t have it any other way. We went to the dark side once and hated it. Moved back home and never looked back.

Cathryn she was 90 plus didn't do stairs and all she had was me and grandma and mom around lol she didn't have much choice. All her other kids left for the city most worked at gm and the others Boeing. They come down on weekends to help and visit. As a kid no other kids my age around the community I spent alot of time down there, mostly just so I could ride my dirt bike somewhere other then the house. They have long gone but t I own 20 acres of that farm, and woulfbt sell for anything! I'm not a sentimental person but with that I am, I've had a few offers to sell but wouldn't even hear them out, too many memories and too much work put into to even think of an offer. My uncle owns another 20 next to us, he is heck bent to get me to sell.. when he says how much, I turn around and ask him how much for his lol .. he has figured out won't happen now he is trying to getme to go in and buy things with him like a tractor and what not, he lives in New Mexico and when he retired he is coming home he says. I know what ge wants go in half buy the equipment and me take care of things do all he has to do is move and it will be ready.
