Archery Camp or Bust

I wait anxiously every year for the arrival of our annual week long archery hunt in New Jersey along the Delaware Water Gap and the time has come to pack up and hit the road.  The anticipation of deer camp builds with every phone call and email with camp members to finalize meal plans, arrival times as well as laying out some plans for where we are going to hunt.  My arrival at camp will mark the 33rd anniversary of my first camp experience when I was only 12 and it never gets old.  For many familiar faces and places may get old, but for me it breathes new life into my soul.  Uninterrupted time in the outdoors with friends and family, who could ask for more.  In the coming week we will spend time chasing whitetail deer, Eastern Turkeys and even some ducks as we lose ourselves in the greatest playground that mother nature offers up.  Every minute of every day is another opportunity to experience something new and to lose myself in the outdoors.  It doesn't make any difference to me if I am successful in my quests to harvest an animal or not as long as I have an opportunity to step outside.
