Join Me for Hunting and Outdoor Short Stories
Modern Wild Man is a place to enjoy outdoor adventure stories from the field.
Why WildernessWikipedia defines the Wilderness as, "Wilderness or wildland is a natural environment on Earth that has not been significantly modified by civilized human activity. It may also be defined as: "The most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet—those last truly wild places that humans do not control and have not developed with roads, pipelines or other industrial infrastructure.""
This blog is a place for those of us who seek that wilderness. As a society and world culture we continue to extend pavement, steel and wire further and further into what was at one time a truly wild place. Many of us feel a type of magnetism to those wild places that are left. We crave time away from our everyday to feel what is real and natural, and to be in a place that is right and good without us being in the center of it.
Craving the WildernessA Wild Man craves the wilderness and the experiences there. Simple things like the smell of the woods, the wind on your face, and the sound of a running stream can fill your soul and bring a sense of wholeness to a man. At Modern Wild Man we hope to bring a sample of some of those things to those who are in between wilderness experiences.
Come by often for a collection of wilderness experiences: hunting and gathering, camping and fishing, paddling and campfires. Recipes for game and fish, thoughts on conservation, and the Modern Wild Man. For those of us who find happiness in shooting straight, walking into the wind, and the feel of wild dirt under our boots!
