Sometime ago I got on an email list for the Regenerative Leadership Institute, a permacultre site. I was googling around looking for a Free Online PDC, legally not trying to redistribute someones work, and I came across theirs. I signed up for the course and started taking it. I want to say I didn’t get very far. Like maybe not even past the first module. The video seemed like it was shot on a VHS camcorder tweenty year ago. There might have been VHS lines on the screen. Instead of instilling me with a sense of nostalgia I could not get into it. Which is a shame it was permculturist Larry Korn, translator of The One Straw Revolution, teaching it. Skipping ahead to now and I get an email from them with an offer for a FREE DVD. I should have known better and I’ll share with you why.

We all love YouTube, it’s my go to place for entertainment and education. YouTube is one o the reasons I don’t bother with having cable anymore. When the annoying cable goons call trying to sale me on getting cable I say “No thanks I have Netflix and YouTube”. In the past I’ve got good suggestions from readers on new channels to subscribe to so make sure you bring something to the table here guys. This time I feel like I have a good collection of various channels that’s sure to be something for everyone. I try to recommend active channels that I feel aren’t well known. Some are a part of this community.Let me preface this by saying this is not in any order. I don’t have a top pick per say. I think you will get something different from all of these wonderful content producers. So let’s get down to video watching.
Today I have a guest post from friend Robert Rice on archery hunting. It’s a subject I’m very interested in and have no had a chance to do yet. You can find more of Roberts work on his Facebook page Here and his website Here. So lets all go learn about it. -James
Archery Hunting :
New Age with an old age twist
Well the first thing I should tell you is I’m from Wyoming, I’m 30 years old and have been archery hunting for 8 years now, but I have been hunting since I was 4. I remember one of the keys to hunting, at least when I was a kid, is to always think ahead of your game. Whatever you might be hunting you have to be thinking ahead of him thinking about where he is going not where he is, thinking about what he is going to do not what he is doing.
Now that being said there are some components out there today that can make your day in the field a lot more productive than the days of old. First thing is if you have a bow made in the 5 years you have quite an advantage over an older bow, because the bows they make now are built almost entirely for speed, and if you practice right you can take advantage of that speed by not having to get as close and not having to think as far ahead of him, and make not as true shots and still do just as much damage.
You can still buy bows that are made for more kinetic energy but they are few and far between anymore, but they are out there. My biggest piece of advice to any archery hunter is ….. You need to know the animal you are hunting, Im not talking about the type simply I am talking about the specific animal, you need to learn his habits, his patterns where he sleeps, eats, where he hangs out with the boys, where he goes chasing women. All of that will make you more aware of what he is going to do next, and more able to make the shot you have been working towards.
This post will be broken into 3 more parts because this subject is very broad hopefully I can hit the main points and help you guys out on your adventure.
