It’s time to say “Goodbye”

October 12, 2010 at 08:22 AM

Well, after a little over two years here at PSO, the end is finally here. We’ve had some great discussions and made many acquaintances that will last for years to come. We all contributed, in our own way, in making PSO a great source for anyone looking for outdoor related recreation. To date, I’m now writing as a freelance writer for several outdoor magazines in addition to a blog at Heartland Outdoors, so I must exercise time management skills and focus on what I need to do.

In the beginning, writing stories or articles on technique became a hobby. Now it’s a job. In just two short years, I have been shifting my energies toward more outdoor related work and the road getting there is time consuming. From a quiet, self-taught deer hunter to a pro staffer for some of the largest outdoor manufacturing companies in North America, it’s never been a dull moment. I joined Bear Archery this year because of their constant push to increase performance and quality, and because of the decent people whom I work with. Working with great people is half of the formula for success. With so many good broadhead manufacturers out there, I’m constantly asked “Why are you with Muzzy? So-and-so makes a really good broadhead”. That may be true but in the end, my broadheads have never failed me and the people behind the company are the FIRST to respond to a donation when it comes to charitable, special needs people and whitetail organizations. Muzzy’s coments are always “How can we help Marc”. Companies like these are important to remember when it comes time to making a decision on what to purchase. It’s these companies that keep fighting for our hunting privileges. Bottom line: I’m glad to be a voice for them!

My new blog is located at: . Please stop by and visit! I’m not asking you to abandon PSO but rather asking you to add Heartland Outdoors to your list of online reading material. It’s been a pleasure and an honor to serve Illinois’ (and beyond) sportsmen/women to date. I wish you nothing but good fortune for the 2010 hunting season!

Farewell. Marc
