“It’s Hard to Believe”

How many times has this simple phrase been used in your daily conversation recently?

  • It’s hard to believe:
  • That the summer is almost over
  • That the 2017 hunting season is more than half over
  • That time has passed too fast since the last time you met with special family members or friends
  • That this will be the 41st annual SCI banquet for the Wisconsin Chapter
  • That the members have helped raise over three million dollars to promote conservation through hunting
  • That successful reestablishing of game animals and water fowl through hunter’s efforts is not given more credit as the foundation of conservation

Perhaps one of the best explanations of this, is detailed in the lyrics of Kenny Chesney’s song:

“Don’t Blink” by Kenney Chesney
I turned on the evening news, Saw “an” old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two today, Asked him what’s the secret to life
He looked up from his old pipe, Laughed and said “All I can say is.”
Don’t blink (Chorus)
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you, Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink (Chorus)
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did, Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your better half, Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink (Chorus)
I was glued to my TV and it looked like he looked at me and said
“Best start putting first things first.”
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand, You can’t flip over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth
Don’t Blink (Chorus)
I’ve been “trying” slow it down
I’ve been “trying” take it in
In this here today gone tomorrow world we’re livin’ in
Now, don’t blink (Chorus)

The SCI-Wisconsin Chapter needs your help. We need your time to assist us in providing new ideas to bring to the banquet. We also would welcome help with planning and need volunteers to help at the banquet. We need your help in providing donations so that the valuable work that hunters provide to the world of conservation will continue. Bring some new “kids”, young or old to the banquet to introduce them to SCI and its goals. Take a friend or a family member hunting in 2017. Help introduce someone to the shooting sports. Honestly, our success is built on the donations you make and it is the combined effort of those donations that has made our chapter one of the best in the world. SCI-Wisconsin Chapter is a 501c3 corporation making which allows your donation to be a tax deduction.

Yes, it is hard to believe that time is passing so rapidly, so Don’t Blink and enjoy the out of doors this year.

Good Hunting, make some memories for you and others, and be safe
