I'm not sure what the exact day is, and frankly, I don't really care. I'm not big on anniversaries and what not. Just ask my wife....
I can say that this year was a success. I had a goal of 100,000 page views and 200 GFC followers. 206 posts later, I made that goal almost to the number. In addition I scored over 1000 Twitter followers and about 260 RSS subscribers.
I was published in a print magazine that is distributed worldwide and I wrote a couple articles for a digital magazine. Several of my posts have been picked up by media outlets and republished. I know I am not a great writer by any means, but this is a nice validation.
Just for fun here are a few of my favorite posts:
At the Lake With My Daughter
Fire From A Traditional Flint And Steel
Myth or Fact - Are Strike Anywhere Matches Illegal?
Myth or Fact - Are Summer Rabbits Safe To Eat?
The Great Outdoor Weekend - Day 3

Explaining Death To A Toddler
What does the future hold? Your guess is as good as mine!
Posts will be few and far between this summer. I am simply to busy at work and home, plus I have finally learned how to catch fish consistently. Much of my free time is spent doing just that.
I am going to participate in a fishing tournament in a few months and I am lining up hunts for next year. So, stories will continue. I have a pile of gear to review, how-tos to write, and recipes to share. Content is not an issue right now, time is.
Thanks to all you who read The Unlucky Hunter for making this past year a success!
