The things you are taught when very young stay with you. The world I've grown into is very different than the one I anticipated. My outdoor mentor as a boy taught me "You leave ripples on the water and footprints in the woods; that's all. This is your home as much as the one you go to with your parents. You wouldn't leave a big mess for your mother would you?" It bothers me when I go on an outing these days. On the water, cans and bottles float by my boat, (hardly ever see a bobber though). On the bank it's old line, garbage and twice this year I've even seen hooks...Hunting I see food wrappers and cigarette butts on property that's posted! We can't keep the poachers off. It saddens me. What do you other folks think happened to make our brothers and sisters lose so much respect for something we should still be in awe of ?
