• 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!
