A new year

Happy new year to all of you! As I do every year, the changing of the year brings introspection and the setting of goals. I thought I would share a couple with you...

I am working on a system to both keep me motivated to write here regularly as well as provide inspiration on topics relevant to this blog.

Along with this I am working on a mission statement of sorts for this blog. I feel my last year plus has been a bit too scattered for my liking in terms of subjects and focus on what my little piece of cyber space is, so stay tuned for the mission statement.

And as far as focus for my outdoor endeavors this year, my focus is going to be elk hunting during the rut with my longbow, so if this is interesting to you, this will be the main thrust of my writing this coming year, so check back frequently. That's not to say I won't be pursuing other outdoor activites though, and I'll be writing about them as well.

Until then, have a happy, safe New Year celebration! Take a few minutes and think about your goals and focus for the upcoming year

School is finally out for the Christmas break! My finals went well, and now I am just enjoying some down time and my little family.

I have also been thinking a lot about my little piece of cyberspace here, working up a mission statement of sorts as well as a series of articles that I think are more central to my initial idea of back country bowhunting.

So stay tuned as I prepare to make 2010 my year for back country solo bow hunting!

Bitter cold

It was negative 4 last night, colder than it has been here in Boise for some time. Because of the now mobile 1 year old the fireplace has not been used yet, and the heater is on every few minutes trying to keep up. Bundle up, it is going to remain cold and snowy for the next several days...
