The start of something good

Welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

It’s difficult to find a creative way to begin your very first blog post. I mean, where do you start? If I’m guessing correctly, you’re either a family member, one of my Facebook friends or you landed on this page by accident. No matter. I’m glad you’re here.

And I hope you’ll come back … and bring a friend with you. It’s gonna be fun!

This blog offers an insider’s view of the NWTF and general goings-on in the outdoors industry. I’m a 12-plus-year veteran of both and have seen my share of turkey biz and beyond. I guess I have a unique perspective on it all, according to the coworkers who roped me into this.

As the editor of Turkey Country magazine, quite a bit of stuff comes across my desk and into my email inbox every day, more than I can possibly fit into a bi-monthly publication. Match that with all the great places, neat-o folks that come with the job, and it should provide quite a bit of fodder for a blog.

I, for one, think it’s great to have another outlet to share the things that inspire me, concern you or will just crack us both up.

But this isn’t simply an overflow trench for content, I honestly love sharing my experiences. And I want to hear about yours too.

Note, however, that the comments part of the blog has been turned off. That’s by design. I can’t blame the Web folks for not wanting to monitor another open forum, keeping those ne’re-do-wells selling objectional products or soliciting American spouses at bay.

But that shouldn’t stop you from sending me a note. I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a line.

I hope you’ll continue on this journey with me. It’ll be like a virtual road trip, and you’re riding shotgun. And the best part is you don’t have to listen to me sing…
