How do you enjoy life? - 10/09/19 09:12 PM

A new scope on your favorite rifle.
A warm fire on a cold day.
Left overs warmed on the wood stove.
Dancing with a pretty young lady.

Best wife in the world, way better than I deserve.
Living in the country, shooting, growing and trapping stuff.
Rooster reminding me it is morning and no one close enough to complain about it.
Cutting wood and noticing how much more work it is as I age.
Smelling Hoppes No.9 and thinking it has not changed a bit in 60 years.
Daylight breaking, be it in the woods, on the water, or at work.
Living in the greatest country in the world.
Many other things too.

Mowing the lawn on a nice summer morning
Sitting on a boulder atop a mountain, taking in the nature sights, sounds, and smells
A hot cup of coffee on a brisk morning on my way to check coyote traps
Grabbing my old rifle with its old scope and knowing it always hits what I want it to
Wondering if my kids faces will split if they smile any bigger when we catch a coyote

Re: How do you enjoy life? - 10/10/19 02:18 AM

Funny you should ask. I do ADC work for a living. That means I'm trapping squirrels, coons, possums, snakes, coyotes, beaver, pigeons and whatever someone is having problems with. So... What do I do when I'm taking vacation?

I take 9 or 10 days off every January, go down to my hunting camp, and run a trap line!

Re: How do you enjoy life? - 10/10/19 02:54 AM

I do what I want to and when I want too. Last year I logged around 320 days fishing, hunting, trapping and being in the back country & on track for those numbers this year. I try not to do any scheduling but I am on a few boards and volunteer groups that make that impossible to live by. Just live and don't worry about anything any more.

The first cup of coffee with my beautiful wife every morning
Watching the sun come up on a spring morning surrounded by calves while filling a water tank
A giant standing dead elm, a sharp chain, and a perfect swing with a splitting maul.
The smell of a dead bull elk on the side of a mountain on a crisp fall morning

Re: How do you enjoy life? - 10/10/19 10:49 AM

Stopping by to help out a friend.
Mowing the local cemetery, just to talk to some people I once knew.
Dropped by my daughter's house last night, just to tell her I love her.
Pretty much just doing what I want to like I have these last 71+ years.

hunting, fishing and adding trapping to that list this year. I love putting on winter gear and going outside in the middle of the nastiest snow storms and blizzards, not sure why but its very calming to me. I love the roar of a sprint car engine. I like cooking food and watching others enjoy it.

That sounds like a lot of guys I know. Glad you didn't say long walks on the beach, that would have revoked the man card....

I just enjoy life. I have a wonderful family good friends and a bad day in the woods or on the water is better than a good good day at work

My boss took me up on a Canadian fishing trip one time in the northern part of Canada and I told him well a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work oh he told me was a good thing we’re fishing LOL

I enjoy life by appreciating and utilizing the abilities I still have at this point in my life. By sharing the joys and sorrows that come along the way with family and friends. By helping those in need and knowing when to back off. Work and play within the parameters life has given me and try to focus on the positives. Keeping in touch regularly with loved ones who are nearing the end of the road and keeping those who have passed close to my heart. And knowing when to let some things go when I know I have absolutely no control over the situation.

By knowing, without a doubt, I will spend the majority of my life with my Savior, Lord Jesus. This short time I have on Earth, I constantly give Him thanks for everything. I learn to count it a blessing as I go through struggles because I know the reward will be worth it all. I enjoy this life by watching others begin to understand the love and compassion Jesus Christ has for us all. I relish in His awesome creation daily. From the sunrise He gives us to the pouring down rain and winter storms - I give thanks. I stand in awe and amazement at how wonderful my Savior truly is in allowing us each our next breath.....

I love waking up every morning and realizing I have a beautiful wife and 3 healthy kids that God has blessed me with. Being "Dad" is the most rewarding thing I've ever done. Coaching 7-8 yr old football, and basketball and having a chance to make a difference in other kids lives. I love sitting in a deer stand waiting on the sun to come up, and now I'm getting to enjoy that with the kids also. Putting the boat on the water at daybreak. Pulling up on a coyote trying to rotate the earth he's pulling so hard on the chain. I actually enjoy coming in after a hard day at work and realizing I'm earning my family's living the right way. Going to talk with my dad everyday if just for a minute. Sunday dinners with the family. Church.Heck I just enjoy life altogether. Blessed man I am

Lots of good ideas on here. I especially enjoy watching my sons grow up. I enjoy seeing them do or say something I taught them.

But I'm also reminded of something C.S. Lewis said: “God can't give us peace and happiness apart from Himself because there is no such thing.”

The more I experience in life, the more I see this to be true.

Listening for a gobble. Making calls. Making them gobble with the calls. Setting traps for days in a row is pure enjoyment. The skinning not quite as much. I enjoy dropping the off with a handler if one has enlisted. Listening to hounds run a track is special. Growing things, dogs, birds, foxes, garden and trees. Have not had the foxes for years, but oh the joy they brought.

Helping new trappers has much joy in it. When they call with that 1st coyote catch, to share in thier joy is priceless.

Retired two years ago, thought I had it all planned out. God has once again proven to me that I'm not in charge. You'd think I would have learned by now considering all the blessings He has provided me and my family over the years. Three months ago, I got the dreaded "c" diagnosis. I thought I would melt down but by His grace, I'm enjoying life more than I ever have.
It's a shame on my part that I've taken so many things for granted, but here we are. My grandmother always said, live life with no regrets. I now know what she meant.

Ive been alive with it for almost 10 yrs. it is what it is. When they gave that diagnosis I figured I was dead in a yr. Not yet
