By that I mean 40 and under. You are going to start fading before you realize it has sneaked upon you. If there’s something you want to go trap or trap hard for something one year DO IT! Those “ someday I’m going to do that” things never happen lots of times. I promise you as you get older things change.
UTK Life Member NRA Life Member Still trapping but getting slower
We have no promise of tomorrow or the rest of today. What we are guaranteed IF we reach the "golden" years is a slower pace, the ravages of a hard working life (for those who have), an extended family (if we're blessed) that equates more time requirements, and a longer recovery time from the inevitable dings, dents, and falls. The only "gold" I'm seen so far is increased urine. When I was young and dumb I vowed to never become like the older gentleman that sat around at the feed mill (that's where folk got their feed ground for you whipper snappers) and say," I used to could..." or "...when I was younger..." It's most humbling when I catch myself saying the exact same words.

My bones hurt just thinking about it.. I believe after 40 I really started feeling the pain I had arthritis as a kid couldn't walk at 7 years old when it hit me, So when you guys talk about getting old I understand 😁 My advice to the younger ones " don't stop or slow down cause father time is consistent it will catch up" I always heard old guys saying never put off what you can do today!
