Hi wishing, welcome to the forum. Good post to jump in with, and I am in agreement. My perspective comes from a lot of years as single mom (before I stumbled upon my current fiance 7 years ago and he wanted the job, he's a wonderful guy!). That said, working always had to come first of course, for survival, but sacrifices need to be made to raise kids correctly. I see plenty of parents in two-parent households that don't spend the time they should. I will never forget all those days when I was so tired coming home from work, but parent time never has off-duty hours. The best thing we did was just spend time together and have fun. A great deal of that time was spent camping and fishing. Economical activities that provide a great amount of togetherness and interaction and memories, plus teaches valuable skills. With my daughter about to turn 18 in a couple of days, I am not looking back thinking I did a perfect job of course, but I am glad I never allowed technology on our camping trips, limit computer access at home and demand the majority of our meals at home be eaten together. When outdoors it's hard to get me to rush or hurry to do the next thing, and I never go on a trip with the kids with an agenda that packs every day with some form of entertainment. I see this with my brother's kids and they are always running, and the kids have the attention spans of ferrets. As it is, my kids don't have the patience like I had when I was little, but I believe that one day when they have their own kids, they will have the respect for others and the outdoors I have tried to show them. And not feel entitled to every little thing. And not feel like others should put in the effort they should. That relates to everything in life.
So I digress, but I agree. Manners are not taught to kids the same way anymore, and people don't have a respect for personal space and property. A great many people in my generation are like that. And it's a shame. But on the plus side, there are great people that pass down good ethics related to all things, and not just hunting. Specific to hunting however, it's great that people can be found, such as on here, willing to help new people get started and learn the unwritten code of conduct.
And then the moon, like to a silver bow new bent in Heaven
