Blame it on my grandpa. If he had to be in the house, it was to eat breakfast or watch a baseball game. Following the lure of the woods was his passion. A trapper by trade, he also fed the family by hunting and fishing, and of course, raising a big garden. He felt compelled to pass his skills on to me and, I’m glad he did. From a young age he would take me to his secret places to hunt and fish, and the words he used most often were, “just listen”. Two words that would serve us all well today.
