Having opened Buchanan Shoals only a few years ago, it is hard to call it a southern tradition just yet. To me, traditions involve occassions that remain the same over time and are long standing in nature. But all traditions, no matter how old, had their origin somewhere. If you are like me, you grew up doing just about anything in the outdoors, and the most cherished memories I have involve spending time with my family and friends while hunting and fishing. I can only hope that as the years go by, and tales of good hunts and great experiences are told, that we are creating a tradition of our own.
When Buchanan Shoals opened its doors in October of 2001, many people told me it was a dream that would never become a reality. The idea was to create an exclusive sportsman’s preserve that combined great hunting with excellent fellowship and camaraderie. Today, I feel confident in saying all members of Buchanan Shoals joined for this very reason. It has become a saying that, “This is how we do things down at The Shoals.” I hope you get the opportunity to agree with me in knowing it is like no other.
