Fellow hunters, as we continue to take to the field in record numbers across America, I can’t help but remind myself of just how fortunate we are to live in a country which not only allows us to express our freedoms but empowers us to exercise them as often as we want.  Indeed, there is no “season” for freedom. There’s no tag to buy, no lottery to win, or even a license we need to secure to have it. No, to harvest freedom, have freedom, to enjoy freedom, we just have to want to. In fact, I think hunting is one of the purest examples of America’s love for freedom through our love of tradition, family, friendship, and our dedication to preserving our natural resources. On that note, I want to express my personal gratitude to each and every one of you who helps keep America hunting. From the biologists who help manage our game animals, to the hunting equipment manufacturers who make our tools, to our friends, family, and yes – the spouses who give us the time, resources, and support we need to be success, I want to say, “Thank you.” As we pause this Thanksgiving to give thanks for what we are grateful for in our lives, please know we here at The Hunting Wire are profoundly thankful to all of you - sincerely Jay Pinsky, editor, The Hunting Wire.
