My brothers and I grew up hunting and fishing all over this wonderful state. We went hiking and camping in the mountains and woodlands of WV. We were taught never to harvest more that you needed and always obey the laws of the land. As my Grandfather Kiser would say, “Boys, we gotta leave some for the other folks too.” He and others like him grew up through the Great Depression, and no one could have understood that more unless they experienced it.
When it came time to raise my two children, I in turn taught them the same values. We, as caretakers of the wonderful state, owe it to the next generation so they have the ability to hunt, fish, hike, and camp this wonderful state we call Wild and Wonderful, West Virginia.
I am firmly committed to see that the next generation will have the same opportunity.
