width=500 Out with the old, in with the new. Another year is over, and a new one is just beginning. Time to fondly remember the year’s highlights, and plan (dream) about what’s to come for the next 12 months. From my chair, I have no complaints about the way the year unfolded. I got to see some country I’ve never seen before, share the woods and water with new and old friends, and, in a roundabout way, added some “unique” stories to my archive of experiences. But I don’t rest easy, and on the cusp of the new year I’ve jotted down three things I’d like to tackle in 2010. I guess you could say it’s my outdoors resolution list. 1. Hunt More Birds: I had a blast chasing some late-season pheasants in North Dakota over the holiday break. It’s something I haven’t done for a long time and certainly an activity I’d like pursue more. 2. Tie More Flies: I was on the water a lot this year, and my supplies are low. I have a feeling spring will be here before I know it, so I better get cracking. 3. Draw a Special Hunt Permit: Lastly, I’m spreading the wealth this year and trying for every tag I can afford—moose, sheep, goat, etc. With a little luck, I might (finally) be able to draw a coveted tag. I know I’m not alone. Who else is working on a resolution list? What do you have as your top two or three goals? —Ben
