A Free University for Everyone


Whatever we want to learn today, we have access to the education for it. Last week my son-in-law asked me if I know how to reline a chimney. I told him I didn't, but I'm sure he could learn how from YouTube. Do you want to cook? Learn to cook whatever you want from YouTube. Do you want to shingle your house? YouTube. Quilt? YouTube. Call deer? Field dressing? Tracking? Scent control? YouTube.

OK. I admit to some exceptions. I don't want my surgeon or my dentist to get their training from YouTube. But anyone can learn lots of great things from online video sources. YouTube has millions of videos, many of them top notch, on everything you want to learn about how to hunt.

And if you're marketing something, a YouTube video is the way to acquaint people with it. I have an instructional video for the turkey call I make.

YouTube is a little like going to college, and learning what you really want to know. "Are the teachers any good?" you ask? Some aren't, but you'll like some of them better than you liked some of your college professors.
