Shotem And Caughtem Independence Day

Fireworks Fireworks

We at Shotem and Caughtem have been reading a lot of comments on the intraweb these days regarding the bashing of the everyday hunter and fisherman/woman.  We felt this week was a perfect week to add our two cents on the subject.  As many of our members and followers will attest too, the sport of hunting and fishing encompasses much more than the aspect of killing animals for sport.  It involves all the things that this country has to offer in it's freedoms and what many hope to achieve.  

Nothing makes this more evident than the celebration of our Independence.  The freedom of outdoorsmen/women that allows us to enjoy all mother nature has to offer and do it with those closest to us.  A time to reflect on our life and how we are only a small piece of the puzzle.  

We conserve to allow future generations the chance to learn what we have in the great outdoors.  The learning experience that even with hard work and dedication to our sport that challenges and disappointment are all part of what gets us so excited when our hard work pays off.  It is why we created the Shotem and Caughtem site dedicated to helping everyone learn, share and most of all brag!

With all the news out there regarding the genetic altering and medications used in our everyday food why would anyone try to bash those who want to procure naturally fed animals as part of our food source.  No drugs, no extra meds to enlarge animals for higher profit, no pesticides, just what mother nature intended.  A fresh off the land fed piece of meat.  They have a different taste.  Whether it is a well preserved cut of meat or a fresh line caught fish they have a great quality taste.  The thrill of procuring that animal, most of the time, is just a bonus.

We would like all of those who read this to have a fun July 4th celebration.  We hope you have a chance to enjoy all the freedoms many take for granted or sometimes over look.  Take the chance to enjoy this much needed break with those closest to you and have a little fun in the great outdoors.  Take time to thank those who helped us achieve those freedoms and keep them.  Most of all we hope you stay safe and share your fourth of July celebrations in the galleries and share your story.
