As I sit listening to the wintery mix softly peck the window outside, I can not help but to think of Spring time in the Ozarks. You know, the sixty degree weather, dogwoods blooming, trout fishing, float trips, and hunting morels in the Ozark hills! The kind of morning you start with calling in a Missouri gobbler and end with your limit of Crappie for the day. The harsh reality sets back in as the sleet picks up intensity outside, spring is a few weeks away, and I have a bad case of Cabin Fever.
Cabin Fever is something I go through every year, much like every outdoorsman I know. It is the longing to be outdoors and do what we are designed to do, hunt and fish. The shorter days and the severe weather keeps us from getting outdoors like we need to. Symptoms start out as slight depression and anti-socialism, and eventually lead to your nose stuck in every outdoor magazine you own. I have found that generous purchases on hunting gear will help ease the pain of Cabin Fever. (perfect timing for your income tax return) If you are tired of the depression, being anti social, or if you ended up owing on your taxes instead of getting a return, then ease the pain with us at the Seventh Annual Outdoor Sportsman show in St. Robert, MO!
The Seventh Annual Outdoor Sportsman show is being held at the St. Robert Community center on February Nineteenth from 5PM -8PM, and February Twentieth from 10AM-5PM! I can say from experience that this is an event that every outdoorsman, or Outdoors-woman, should not miss. There are a variety of vendors including your local Hunting or Fishing Guides, Resorts, ATVS, Camping, and also the local Hunting and Fishing clubs! I mostly enjoy going to talk about the outdoors with those who share the same passion of the outdoors as I do, and who are probably experiencing their own symptoms of Cabin Fever. If you attend, please stop by the Keepin` it in the Ozarks booth and we can swap some stories of our Outdoor adventures! I am looking forward to hearing from my fellow Outdoorsmen, as it is the perfect remedy for Cabin Fever. I hope to see you there.
