3. Give the award to 15 recently discovered worthy bloggers.

7 Things about myself

  • I am a certified hunter education instructor for the state of Connecticut.
  • I served in the united States Army as a 13C (Fire Direction Control) - Artillery - King of  Battle
  • I hated English in school, but you can probably tell that from my blog posts.
  • I am a Penn Stater - WE ARE......PENN STATE!
  • I was a youth football, baseball and basketball coach as well as a high school football coach and even though it took time away from my outdoor passions, I would do it all over again.  Kids are the best.
  • I love to cook, but hate to clean up after and I will use every pot and pan in the cupboard.
  • I have a very loving and tolerant wife and two fantastic kids who put up with my outdoor antics.

15 blogs that you should visit

One of the things I enjoy about blogging is all the other great blogs that are out there.  Make sure to stop by OBN and check out the Outdoor Blog Directory to see a huge list of outdoor bloggers and I am certain you will find something on that list that interests you.


  1. I totally could see you as a hunter's ed teacher and I bet your pretty good at it too!

    As for the kitchen clean up, we have a cool rule in our house to take care of that. The one cooks doesn't clean. It's the other spouses duty and since I do most of the cookin', it works out pretty darn good for me! lol!

    Great post!

  2. You're very welcome! I'm looking forward to reading your posts! It's fun to find new blogs.

    Thanks for listing those blogs, too! Several of them are new to me as well.
