To the Valley News:
Kudos to outdoor writer Joe Hackett for his recent column in the Times of Ti, “The hunt is on.” He covered every spectrum of the sport we call deer hunting and hit upon the two most important parts, which most outdoor writers neglect, tradition and sharing of knowledge and skills from the older hunters to the new ones starting.
The article teaches respect, not only for the deer, the outdoors, but for those who have gone before us and handed down the ways. I have known Joe as a fellow guide and outdoor writer for over 30 years. In my opinion, this is one of his finest articles. Keep up the good work, Joe.
