Making the most of any outdoor outing equates to a positive attitude and the ability to remain flexible. After all, we don’t always catch a limit of fish or shoot a big whitetail buck but if we take the time to truly relish our time spent in the outdoors, we benefit by returning home rejuvenated and refreshed. A couple days spent last week with two great friends, Jeff Rice and Larry Weishuhn aka. “Mr. Whitetail” is a good case in point.
Setting under the covered boathouse at Mill Creek Resort on Lake Texoma last week several boats loaded with anglers anxious to get out on the water for a morning of striper fishing were sipping coffee and making small talk. I was in one of these boats, along with my grandson Jackson Zimmerman and good friend Jeff Rice. Rain was pounding on the metal roof above us and off in the distance, lightening was popping and thunder booming.
