Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I want to start off by giving thanks to all of you for following this blog since it's inception in June.  We embarked into the big world of the disabled outdoors.  The adventures have been great and I am excited about the prospects of the future.  Thanks be to God for placing inside of my heart a passion for hunting, fishing and travel.  I am most alive when in pursuit of one or all three of these endeavors.  It thrills my heart to share my experiences with you and hopefully pass along some good tips and knowledge for your success in the outdoors as well.  I want to thank my incredible wife and amazing son for giving me the freedom to chase adventure from early in the morning to well after dark in some cases so that I can deliver from actual experiences this blog to you the readers.  They have given and contributed to this endeavor just as much if not more than I.

Secondly, I want to wish each of you and your families a Merry Christmas.  I know where I came from in my life and where I am today.  The difference between those two points has and always will be Jesus.  He is the answer to all that ails me.  He completes the greatest desires of my heart.  He is the loving Father I always wanted.  If no one has ever told you, then let me enlighten you, you are His favorite son or daughter too!  He is the true gift of Christmas.

Lastly, 2015 is upon us.  As we close out 2014, I hope that you give it your all.  That you check some things off the list and move them from the "To Do" to the "To Done" side of the paper.  2014 has been a year of firsts for me.  I have never written professionally nor had I ever killed a deer until 2014.  I am so excited for the coming year and all that God has in store for all of us.  Ahh the stories we will be able to tell and share this time next year.  I want to encourage you to set some goals.  Work hard at achieving them.  We hope to sign four sponsors in 2015 to Handicapped Outdoors and add a small team of writing contributors.  We also hope to begin to market solutions for handicapped/disabled outdoors men and women in my store -  If you would be interested in being a sponsor, a producer or manufacturer, please shoot me an email and we will be in touch.

New Years
This is the final blog for 2014.  I will be spending the rest of the year with my family and recharging my soul.  There is also a large antlered deer that needs my attention, LOL!  I will be back in January with some fresh articles in the arena of travel and fishing will be here before you know it.  Be blessed.  Spend time with your loved ones.  Get out there!  It's not called the great outdoors for nothing you know?
