Bryan from the DeerPhD posted a very flattering article where he explains how his blog became what it is doday. Bryan goes on to thank a few outdoor bloggers for their support of his blog. Among (Skinny Moose Media, Outdoor Bloggers Summit, Hunt Smart, Think Safety, Simply Outdoors, Bright Idea Outdoors Weblog, Tails & Trails and Big Buck Zone) he also mentions me with the following quote;
“I think we all know Othmar. He runs several sites/blogs. He’s an outdoor speaker, and he was extremely supportive of my blogging pursuits from day 1. I’ll never forget the first time I received an e-mail from Othmar. Just knowing I was on his radar made me think that I had “made it”! This guys is an extremely talented writer with a huge heart.”
I was very flattered by this nice comment and I wrote back:
“My big thank you for the link to my blog comes a little late but it is heartfelt.
You know how to make an old man blush. I liked you blog the very first time I read it. I have made many friends in the outdoor blogging sphere and my wish for the future is that perhaps we all could get together to hunt and share a campfire.
One of the many benefits of outdoor blogging is that we make many friends. Although we never have met each other personally we pull all on the same string by promoting hunting and the hunting heritage. What we outdoor bloggers can achieve without ever meeting in person has been shown when a few of us got together on the internet and by phone and created the (Outdoor Bloggers Summit.
When I wrote my comment on Bryan’s blog, especially the last sentence; “I have made many friends in the outdoor blogging sphere and my wish for the future is that perhaps we all could get together to hunt and share a campfire.” I got to thinking how neat it would be if we all could get together on a hunting adventure.
For those of you that read my blog regularly and know about my involvement with the Outdoor Bloggers Summit and the planed meeting in the coming spring, I have to say that my idea of an outdoor bloggers hunting adventure would be something completely independent from the Outdoor Bloggers Summit.
We all write about hunting would it not be a real cool idea if we could share a real life campfire together?
Here is my idea about such an adventure and I hope that my fellow outdoor bloggers will give some input and ideas too.
First we would have to find a location to stage this hunting bash. Rex at the Deer Camp Blog does a great job of telling us about his famous Christmas Plantations and I think, provided Rex wants to take part, this would be a great place to hold such a gathering.
What do you all think about this idea? Let me know by commenting on this blog or my contacting me personally.
