Was that 'I dont break branches' ,,,baiting us into an old discussion on the sly ?
I'm standing in a creek,,cold water up to my azz. waving my arms to cast a string on a very. very expensive stick with a fake bug attached to the end of said string,,,only to catch a fish,,,that I will release,,,and repeat this action...and you ask what do we do that is STRANGE ? come'on man,,,lol
Oh,,btw,,I've burnt a ton of natures little sticks up in campfires while sitting in the dark of night, when a perfectly good bed was empty at the house.
No,,I don't think I do anything 'strange' myself,,can't speak for others.
