I am truly blessed as an outdoor writer/broadcaster to get to do some really neat stuff in the outdoors. I get to fish places I wouldn’t ordinarily get to fish; get to hunt in places I’d never go if I weren’t in this profession.
Most of the spots I get to visit are offered gratis with the expectation I’ll find something interesting to write or broadcast about.
There is one trip, though, where the expenses come out of my pocket book, one I’ll gladly fork over funds necessary to spring for the trip. I’m talking the Russell Ranch in Menard, Texas.
