I grew up in the sticks. We hunted and fished and swam in the creek everyday all day. Seriously, we were outside doing some of it. We always said we didn't have time to come out of the woods to go play scout. LOL Actually, the money for uniforms for a family of 4 boys was better spent on bullets and food. We were dirt poor really. When I grew up I also took up scouting for a few years. Ironically, probably my time spent in the woods hunting ended up more valuable to me than scouting would have. At least it played out that way for a couple years in South East Asia. First Squadron First Cavalry.... Scouts Out.

I was a scout for most of my school years. I think it has changed a lot, though. Not better or worse, just different.

I agree, it has changed even in through the years I've been involved. It has gotten much more political on all levels and that p*sses me off beyond belief. It is supposed to be about teaching life values and outdoor skills, unfortunately it doesn't always work like that anymore.

I was a scout. that is where i developed my love for being in the woods. I now have two boys in scouting and my oldest really loves the camping and being in the woods.
I help out with the troop and go with my son camping, I really enjoy being out there teaching the kids stuff. This year was i tried something differentand it payed off.
I got up early while camping with the scouts and went for a walk through the woods with my bow . ended up stalking a deer and shooting it all before breakfast. after that
i went and followed the blood trail and recovered the deer. that night we had venison on the grill. great weekend
