November 2016

Wow! Its

Wow! Its November already! Where does the year go? The older I get the faster time seems to fly. Speaking of time going by.... almost half of the season for deer has gone by. I hope you have had the opportunity to get out to the fields and woods for your opportunity to get a shot at the deer in your area. However, remember … its not about the end result... its about your journey as a hunter, tracker, and citizen game manager. Some hunters think you should only take bucks, and then only those of a certain size.... this is not good game management. We have to train ourselves to be good stewards of the natural resources. This means hunting does also. I have heard some hunters say ...”we save the does and spikes for women and children..” Have you ever hunted a wiley doe? There is nothing like it. She didn’t get to be her age by accident. There is nothing wrong with taking a nice buck, but consider being a good steward and follow the game management practices established by our Wildlife Resources Commission. Some news from the North Carolina Bowhunter’s Association: The NCBA now owns some property. In 2005 a motion was made and seconded to purchase some land for the use of the NCBA membership. A land acquisition fund was established for the association to purchase property around the Butner area for our members since it is centrally located for the state membership. It has taken 11 years but land has been purchased an acquired. The property is located at 3103 Old NC 75. It is approximately 12.5 acres in size. We are currently working on rules for the property, it will be available for all our members to use. We are Talmage Dunn 252-267-5437 District 1 Wildlife Rep for NCBA planning to have a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate this accomplishment! This week is the annual Butner hunt sponsored by the NCBA. It is a great time of fellowship and fun. Its a bit late for this year, but consider coming out to this annual membership hunt next October. We have had many people offer to build picnic areas, storage buildings, help with campsite clearing. If any of you would like to help out in any way please contact the NCBA. This is another of the multitude of reasons to join the NCBA. Schedule of upcoming events: October 22-29, 2016 – Annual Butner hunt (too late for this year but noit for next!

Freemasons During The War Between The States All of our clients get their own QR code for free when purchasing an ad. By Dr. Dave Referencing the book house undivided by Allen Roberts published by McCoy Publishing (continued last month) This was an era that had been a war of words had ended, and a shooting war began, thanks to Lincoln’s and Yankees arrogance and greed. On May 5th, 1861 after the evacuation of Confederate forces , the Alexandria,Va. Lodge ( the lodge which George Washington had been a charter master) was ransacked by entering Yankees and forced to disband by northern masons to form a new Yankee lodge called the union lodges after petitioning the Grand lodge of the district of Columbia for a dispensation to form such lodge. On May 27th, 1861 a Masonic grand master summed up the general feeling of Freemasons in connection with Lincoln’s war. Our fraternity embraces the whole in bonds of charity; as masons, we know no north, no south, no east, no west; yet we know our country and brotherhood everywhere. Peace and harmony are the mission of our order. Whatever individuals may feel to be their duty as citizens, let us not forget our brotherhood. Let us remember the fraternal cord and its duties. We can do much to assuage the bitterness of the present with all men, and especially with those of our own household. May the god of love keep in harmony and brotherly love. At the first battle of Manassas Va. (Yankee name bull run) July 21,1861, as colonel ray nor of Ohio Yankee troops was being held captive in Confederate custody after being injured, one of his Confederate guards J.H. Lemon of Radford’s cavalry C.S.A. was a truly good Samaritan and mason, got some ice and pounded it up in his own handkerchief and bound it around the throbbing brow of ray nor. J.H. Lemon C.S.A. said I only hope to get the same treatment from you northern men if ever I fall into their hands if you all will relieve the distress of a suffering brother mason when in your power, shall be well paid. This he said as he pointed to the Masonic pin on rayon’s shirt. As the Yankees were skedaddling from the field of battle at Manassas being chased by many Confederate troops it was observed of a badly injured Yankee giving the Masonic sign of distress when three Confederate soldiers stepped out of line to assist the wounded Yankee and brother mason, and care for him just another power and beauty of the Masonic tie. Also at the battle of First Manassas, Va., two days after the battle the 18th Virginia regiment commanded by Colonel Robert E. Withers ( Grand Master of Virginia 1871-1872 ) was in camp when the pickets brought in a Yankee prisoner, who was a member of the 12th new York Zouaves who stated that the colonel of his regiment was severely wounded and concealed in the woods nearby and offered when requested to do so to guide a party of soldiers to his place of concealment. A detail of men brought along a wagon to retrieve him. While conversing with Colonel Withers C.S.A. It was observed that the injured Yankee was colonel wood and on his bosom was a Masonic pin, being a brother in distress .He was carried to Colonel Withers tent where he was examined and cared for and later was moved to a hospital at Charlottesville, Va. Where he was more extensively cared for and made comfortable by masons there. He later stated he would never fight against the men who had so generously befriended him in his time of distress who were naturally brother masons. In the village of Hampton, Virginia the 3rd regiment of new York volunteers entered the village about one mile from Fortress Monroe, this village had been deserted by its good southern citizens a short time before the infestation of the unruly Yankees.
