I would consider the user groups of these two places vastly different. I think the offerings are an example that Forever Wild has kept its promise of Adidas Basketball Shoes Shop Online purchasing land for public recreation and opening it to all types of recreation.
I liked the premise of saving lands and opening it to public recreation. I liked the idea of allowing hunters and fishermen access to these lands.
It was these types of offerings that Alabamians were promised when we went to the polls in 1992 to decide if we wanted a constitutional amendment that would create Forever Wild.

Near Greensboro in Hale County, a Forever Wild tract will soon offer a completely different type of activity. The 3,340 acre site that was once home to the state cattle ranch was purchased from the Department of Corrections last year. That ranch, which raised cattle to feed inmates in the state prison system, also had ponds to raise catfish to feed inmates.
In this state where political promises frequently ring hollow and political corruption is all too common, Forever Wild continues to be a pleasant exception.

To be honest with you, I worried at the time that the latter might be one of those hollow political promises. Others feared that, too. I remember one letter from a reader who said hunters and fishermen were being courted only for their votes and would be left out in the cold if Forever Wild came to be.
Forever Wild has purchased more than 60 tracts totaling almost 140,000 acres, and wherever hunting or fishing is feasible the board has allowed it. In fact, I've been a little surprised at the amount of land that the board has opened to hunting. I think a lot of hunters have been happily surprised, too.
If one phrase best describes my reaction to Forever Wild through the years it would be "pleasantly surprised." I liked the original premise of saving certain environmentally sensitive land and land that offered critical habitat for certain plants and animals. Adidas D Rose 7 Primeknit Colorways
The Walls of Jericho Forever Wild Tract near Scottsboro in northeast Alabama is one of those wonders that leave first time visitors dumbstruck that they didn't know such an incredible place existed in their state.
This tract with such incredible views was purchased in 2004 as a nature preserve, recreational area and wildlife management area. Just opened in recent days is a 4.7 mile loop, called the Bear Den Point Loop, to the existing 6 mile hiking trail. Plans for other hiking trails are in the works including an 11 mile long overnight wilderness backpacking trail.
I got to thinking about Forever Wild this past week as two special places purchased by Forever Wild are offering greater public access. Adidas Boost 350 Grey
Almost 17 years after its creation, the program designed to purchase lands for public recreation has done exactly what was promised without even a hint of impropriety.
