Turkey season has ended and it’s time to go fishing, or time to find other activities to do in the outdoors.
One of the things many outdoorsmen do this time of year is to give their deer stands the once-over before the weather gets too hot and the wasps take over. This is a great idea but after reading a post on FaceBook recently, it’s also an activity that can get you seriously hurt.
While summer vacations and national holidays typically provide a break for everyone who would be considered a member of the working public, there is one big break ahead that’s a priority on most everyone’s calendar — retirement.
