When taking to the woods or field this year, make sure to limit the use of phones and tablets. They not only distract you from what is going on around you, but the lit screen and small motions of playing an electronic game may spook away the "wild game" you are out there seeking!
Ron Hustvedt - who spends many hours with his kids in the great outdoors - says, "Snacks help and I feel terrible admitting it, but a digital device with silent activities can help break up the monotony (for kids of all ages). Just remember that the point of being out there is to watch the woods and sit in silence. Avoid headphones and limit usage to just a few sporadic minutes.”
Ron Hustvedt takes his kids along on his hunts and says "Not only am I gaining future hunting partners, I’m also helping keep this rich tradition alive for all of us. Hunting requires hunters so we have to home-grow the sport if we want to keep it around.”
