  1. Steve Merlo: Wildlife gives outdoorsmen plenty to be thankful for

    Thanksgiving is not just for eating turkeys. Everything in our lives, especially our outdoor loves and pursuits, demands some form of Thanksgiving. On that special day, a million thanks would not come close to covering all that we have received.

    We should be grateful for all wild creatures, whether or not we outdoorsmen seek to hunt or to fish for them. For their continued existence, for the joys they afford whenever we infringe on their environments, demands special thought and thanks. Spectacular orange sunrises, glowing red sunsets and bright full moons also demand our attention.

    There are gurgling, babbling creeks, tiny rills tumbling down mountain canyons and emerald pools full of shiny, speckled trout. We should offer thanks that these fish strike our casted offerings and admire their shimmering beauty while leaping high into the air. We need to be thankful they taste wonderful still sizzling from a hot frying pan.
