The Legend.
They are a symbol of freedom and what this country is all about. It embodies what our forefathers fought and died for, that all of us may choose, learn and have the opportunity to teach and pass on a legacy to our children - a way of life that we and those before us were able to partake in and enjoy. They give us an opportunity to share ourselves with our family and friends in a unique manner and, in my opinion, in a special proximity to God and His creation. It lets everyone know that there are choices available to all of us because of the efforts of many, both now and before us. You do not HAVE to be bound to computers, TV’s, high rises, concrete and traffic jams all of the time. These are great privileges that have been preserved for us, I can not encourage anyone enough to take children, yours or others, and other young people that have not had the opportunity and share these great gifts with them. It is magical to watch a new hunter or fisher’s eyes light up, their imagination come to life and the anticipation unfold as they begin to experience, learn and enjoy these gifts - with me being able to introduce them to this gift, as it was introduced to me. I am forever thankful to my uncles C.A. and Teed Goforth, my wonderful mother Dovie Goforth, and my dad Max Ladd, and all of those of whom I have had the privilege to cross paths with and my most trusted friend - GOD.
