Hunting-- The golden pond .

When your young you have few worries about life and the future. As you grow older you begin taking on the world and it's problems. When you get in your 40's you begin thinking about your retirement and what you want to do with the rest of your life. Me, I'm 48 years old and have been thinking about retirement for some time now and I know what I want if God will permit it to happen for me.For the past 10 years now my wife and I have been wanting to buy a large tract of acreage (approx. 100 -500 acres ) mostly all wooded and build a small log home with a barn and horses, plant crops for the deer and other wild game and live quite lives in the wild by ourselves as the pioneers did. Unfortunately the problem is finding the right place and funding such an idea. That's why I started this posting thing was to make money but it just isn't working for me but I'll still continue to post cause I find it enjoyable and who knows maybe one day I'll find my way to "The Golden Pond" that I'm looking for and everything will become my hunters dreamworld before my time is up here on Gods great earth. Hunting is my life next to my wife and together we'll still have a wonderful life together in our own little world we've created for ourselves. Whatever happens we'll still continue hunting "The Golden Pond" that we dream of for ourselves and so shouldn't you.

nice post! I am the same age and wanting to get out of the rat race also. Blogging is fun but not a money maker yet. I think a few of us hunting guys are going to have to put our heads together to find the answer.

Thanks editor and it's good to here that someone else is looking for a money making idea besides me. This was surposed to be a money maker but I don't think it's going to be, least not for me but I'll still blog and if you find a good way to make money without big cost please let me know.

we'd all like to get paid to write about what we love doing, but even if we don't it's still great to be able to share it with the world. Keep blogging and keep hunting. Your "Golden Pond" might be right under your nose. And it might be free!

Nice Site. Making money blogging is tough. I was hoping to make enough to cover some of my ammo. I never thought about retiring off it :D Hang in there the secret is to get traffic to your site. Write as often as you can and link link link. I'll be adding your site to my blog.
