  • Groundhog predicts an early Spring in 2013

    Saturday was about as exciting as it gets. Granted, it was cold and windy, with a little snow in the mix. But, I was determined not to miss it. It’s been in the planning stages for almost a year and now it was going to happen.
    So I layered up and headed out to an area I’d had my eye on for a while. The signs were all good that my quarry used this area so that only left relying on my stalking abilities to get the job done.

  • No hunting at Fagan Branch

    It seems to me that everybody knows you can’t hunt on Fagan Branch, been that way since the lake opened, 15 plus years. Nobody has hunted there… nobody! Given its status as a “protected” lake it’s become a sanctuary for waterfowl. A place where they could rest and roost unmolested by hunters.
    That all changed a couple of weeks back when three individuals from Green County set up and hunted on Fagan Branch… a couple of times!

  • Waterfowl season has been foul

    Here it is again. Another early deadline and I’ve been home with the flu for the past week. So, you won’t get much this week. I know, ya don’t get much any week, but this time I have an excuse!
    Well, as much as I dislike politics, I listened to Obama’s gun control speech. Like some of what I heard, dislike some of what I heard and wish some other stuff had been explained. Oh yeah, the above are my opinions and do not reflect those of The Lebanon Enterprise… or something like that!

  • Hunting seasons we have left

    Every once in a while something happens which points out that not everybody understands what I write. I’m pretty sure that happens when I just take for granted that everyone hunts and/or fishes!
    Case in point: I recently wrote about duck hunting and the use of a blind. Well, I got a call from a lady, who is an accomplished angler, asking what a “blind” was. Kinda caught me flat footed and brought home the notion that I should maybe explain myself a little better when I write.

  • Mother Nature provides some company for a lonely hunter

    It’s nice to be back on a regular schedule. First, was the early deadline for Christmas, which I missed! Then, there was the early deadline for New Year’s, which I barely made! Now, it’s normal again, at least until Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday!

  • Duck hunting success, sort of

     

    For anyone who actually reads this article you undoubtedly noticed that I missed last week! And, the reason is really simple … I forgot.

    Yes, it was one of those early deadlines that I remembered a couple of hours too late. And while I seriously doubt anyone went through too much emotional trauma at the absence of my article I will nonetheless apologize. In my defense, I felt that if the world were to actually end I would’ve wasted my time by writing an article anyway!
