    Keeping a journal, and not necessarily of just outdoor activities, is an excellent idea. I am amazed at how much I forget, even from one year to the next. It's an excellent reference to what happened and when.

I'll have to ask him someday if I can read it, think I'd enjoy the stories more from his perspective anyway.

    Speaking of which, I haven't heard a thing from Natalie. Offer still stands, and turkey season will be here soon
    Yeah, you should.

    A "journal" doesn't have to be a notebook or binder.
    Just some way to record memories and events to help recall them at a later date.
    Until I go back and read my own journals do I realize just how many little fine details had slipped my mind.

    I'd like to read some of their journals.
    Maybe entries in the mailman's journals for the week they were gone might be equally as "interesting."

    started a topic Keeping a "Hunting Journal".

    Keeping a "Hunting Journal".

    It just crossed my mind that we seem to have picked up some younger "members".
    All you young readers, I'd like to urge you to start keeping a hunting/fishing/outdoor activities "Journal".
    You don't have to write "War and Peace" every time you go hunting.
    Just a short narrative or maybe just some of the facts of the day.
    Temperature, weather, time, game seen.
    I've begun adding photos to mine.
    I didn't start keeping my "Journal" until I was in my 50's.
    I missed TONS of memories and days afield with my dad, grandad and friends.
    Some memories remain. Alot have been forgotten. Lost forever.
    It may not seem important now, but twenty years down the road, it will be priceless.
