Have you ever felt stuck in a season of life where it seems like you’re busier than normal.? Time so quickly passes and we get swept away by our own agendas. We get caught in the hustle and bustle of work, parenting, maintaining somewhat of a social life and trying to keep up with the Joneses, all while keeping our eyes glued to a screen in some form or fashion to keep us “entertained.”
For my family, the month of August was a total whirlwind! My husband and I welcomed our second child into the world in late July, and we’ve been having to learn all over again just how hard it is to adjust to a severely disrupted sleep schedule, balancing a toddler’s needs with a newborn’s needs and keeping a grip on our sanity all at the same time. Don’t get me wrong – it’s been a joy! But my husband and I are both ready for a day of rest.
Sometimes, it’s important to disconnect from things so that we can reconnect with things that are important to us. Making time in our busy schedules to breathe and enjoy the beauty of the world around us can do wonders for mental clarity, and that’s why my family is making it a point to get off the grid and get back into nature during National Hunting and Fishing day – taking place on September 22nd this year.
I feel pretty darn lucky to have married into a family of outdoor enthusiasts. During this time of year, my family begins making their annual preparations for deer season to open up, and out come all of the bows, rifles and ammo to be sighted in and tested in anticipation of a bountiful harvest.
Speaking of bountiful harvest, check out my beautiful mother-in-law and her handsome buck she killed a few seasons back! She has always loved getting outdoors and suiting up in her camouflage to scope out a beautiful buck or doe to bring home to her family. Not only is she handy with a rifle, but she also assists with cleaning the kill – and she cooks a mean venison roast!
My husband and I are counting down the days until National Hunting and Fishing Day, where we plan to fully disconnect from the distractions in life and spend time with our family preparing our gear for opening day coming up very soon. We’ll finish sighting in our rifles, sharpening our broadheads and get in a little target practice. Come opening day, we’ll be diving into the woods and breathing in the fresh air while we scope out a deer – and we couldn’t be more excited!
One tool we simply cannot live without during deer season is our GameSaver® Outdoorsman Vacuum Sealing System and GameSaver® Heat Seal Bags and Rolls to help us preserve the meat that we harvest so that we can enjoy it all year long.
This particular system is perfect for a beginner due to it’s ease of use. The bags are made of a durable, multi-layered material that is puncture resistant and blocks out oxygen and moisture, so any meat or produce that is sealed lasts up to 5x longer compared to ordinary storage methods! The Outdoorsman has an extra wide sealing strip and can power through 40 consecutive seals at a time. It’s been a HUGE helping hand as far as keeping our meat fresh for our family all year long, and helps our family save a ton of money each year by preventing freezer burn on our favorite foods!
Amazon will be running a special promotion on GameSaver® products throughout the month of September. Plus, The Outdoorsman and the GameSaver® 28 gallon bags and GameSaver® 11″ expandable heat rolls (2 pack) will be 20% off from September 9th – September 16th!
