Sole Adventure began in January of last year. It is pretty wild to look back over the past year and realize just how much the site has grown. I remember when I received my first comment. I remember when the first real dialogue started. I remember when I signed up for twitter and started to chat with some amazing hunters that I have now had the opportunity to connect with on deeper levels; some of whom have become friends.
A year ago I had no idea that this site would grow to receive tens of thousands of views, or that I would have been able to give away over a $1,000 in gear to readers. I also wouldn’t have believed just how many doors have opened to me over the last year.
Most importantly, I wouldn’t have believed how much I would have grown as a hunter, and how deep my passion for bowhunting would have become. Just when I think that I can’t get any more excited to be a bowhunter I turn around and realize that I am more fired up than last year, last month, or even yesterday.
I would still be doing this if no one was reading, but I will tell you what – it is a lot more fun to have you along for the ride. To all who have read, commented, e-mailed, and tweeted… THANK YOU!
2012 is going to be another great year!
