The Natural State
I get tickled at some people. They think that hamburger and other meat products grow on trees or something. It's dumbfounding that there are people out there in our day and age, that don't know that the things you buy in a grocery store come from animals.
I guess that they have gotten so far into the concrete and cyber jungle, they have lost touch with reality.
Mankind has been a hunter and gatherer for hundreds of thousands of years. Possibly millions. Even before modern man, I am sure we were out there in the natural state. Those millenium will not be erased in the blink of an eye. Though at times now it seems to be happening.
Even with my country boy lifestyle I stray away for a while and have to get back out there in the natural state. My favorite way to do that is bow hunting. Ninety nine per cent of the time I spend out there I am soaking up nature and all its wonders. It's like meditation for me. A true spiritual experience. I can identify with the native americans reverence for the the natural state. Everything fits like a magical puzzle. And man is very much a peice in that puzzle. He belongs there as much as the oak tree and the fox. Many try to demonize the hunter. It is they who have lost touch with reality not the hunter. I feel sorry for them, truly I do. X.
