Shoot a rifle ? sure.. I am an NRA member.... " Natural Roaming Animal" .

I am a " Natural Roaming Animal "....
I am a " Natural Roaming Animal ".... | Source

No license season

Walking through the woods early in the day...

Haven’t seen a single soul passing my way...

All set to hunt as, I bought the latest gear....

On this the first hunting day of the year.....

It isn’t too cold but there’s a bit of snow...

So footprints will tell me where to go...

I can track by smell....

And I’ve been told pray tell....

That Man is getting smarter every single year..

Which means a lot... to my friends in here...

But now here’s the twist of this little ditty...

I’ve never lived or been to the city....

But trust me.. cause when I’m done..

And this is all in the end of Fall....

I’ll have a gorgeous blonde six footer ... a hanging on MY wall....

So keep in mind next time you go walking in the woods...

Stop..Look.. and Listen...or you could end up in some Deers' kitchen..

      thanks Nell... Some Orange grove owners here in "Floriduh " recently decided to allow hunters to hunt Deer on there property, due to the fact they were eating young Orange trees. I thought REALLY ? so this poem, came to mind...although I changed the location ( snow )...I say go ahead and hunt just give the animals gun rights also...after all they are the NRA..hehehe

      Au fait..thank you so much for your many times as I contacted HP.. they never offered any help ..except to say they were " not up to their standards " ...yet all hubs were published... I had been with HP for 3 years and I was a level 8 commentator.. over night I went to level 2...I will try what you suggested..and update you ...appreciated your comments.

      I like the deer's point of view, and I liked your summary.

      Beyond this specific article, may I make a recommendation to you? I note that you have published 60 hubs, yet none are visible and available here on your profile page to be read except the 4 on the revolving marquee.

      To correct that, go to your profile page. Click on "Edit Profile." Go to almost the bottom of that page where it says "Show only Featured Hubs on my profile:" Click on the 'NO' box and then all of your hubs will be visible again on your profile page.

      I realize they have been idled, which is why they aren't showing, but that's no reason not to make them available for readers interested in them. After all your work of writing them, let people who wish to read them do so. The advertising remains on them, so benefit all you can from them even though they are not currently indexed by Google.

      The main and usual reason hubs are idled is because they do not get enough traffic. It isn't because they are defective. While it never hurts to edit and re-edit one's work for spelling and grammar errors, etc. (one's own eyes never seem able to all the typos, etc., but going over it again and again is helpful), the main thing is to use words in your title that someone might use if they were searching for information like the info in that specific hub even if it is a poem. Ask yourself what words would you use if you were searching for this info. Use those words in your title.

      Snappy titles look great on the news stand and on a magazine you have just purchased, but people using the Google search box aren't going to try to think those up when they're searching for your information. Use those splashy cool titles for your capsule headings instead.

      So what I'm saying here is that titles matter for search purposes. Changing the title to reflect the contents of the hub may not seem as cool, but the main reason a hub gets idled is because of little or no traffic. Searching with a search engine is totally different from standing bored in the checkout line and reading the headlines and seeing the glossy magazines calling out for attention.

      Otherwise do everything you can to get your hubs traffic. Promote your hubs whenever you get the opportunity, but also make them available to people who visit your profile. I visit people's profiles all the time looking for a hub that interests me. It's my way of saying thank you for taking time to read and comment on my hub. I realize that when someone comments, or especially if they share one of my hubs with their followers, that hub gets exposure and it may be just what is needed to make it successful.

      This being a poem (I don't know if all of your hubs are poems), the advice about the title is just as relevant as if it were an article. If you want people to open the hub so that you get a pageview, which eventually adds up to earning a few pennies or dollars, put a title on it that will make readers/searchers want more, no matter if it's a poem, a fiction story, or an article.

      Enjoyed this poem and voting it up. Hope when I come back I'll be able to peruse all of your published hubs. :)

      Life on the wall is NOT all a pity... The Dear Doe who hung me is awfully pretty... Never assumed as I went for my walk; That such a looker would see & not balk... Now I'm a trophy for all to see... Believe it can happen, it happened to me...

      I never was a hunter but boy that would make you think?Anyone that keeps my mind active and challenging new thoughts is well worth reading. Besides nurses and doctors are my celebrities. They do what others don't help us when we need it the most.Thank you for all your kindness and friendship. Off to rake since leaves don't rake themselves.Talk soon.Enjoy a wonderful day.
