  • Expert lessons in trapping

    Saturday morning found a bunch of us sitting at the Bradfordsville Country Store listening to a very informative seminar given by Mr. Leon Smith.
    That morning the former government trapper from Colorado (also a former elementary school principal) gave 16 of us a quick lesson on trapping/shooting coyotes….and cats, bear, raccoons, muskrat, etc.

  • Deer - Mudd

    Trevor Mudd bagged this 7-point buck Nov. 11, 2012, on the family farm. His parents are Kim and Brian Mudd.

  • Learning to deal with coyotes

     

  • Waterfowling action goes foul

    Why would any normally sane individual be up and out at 4 a.m.?
    Well, nobody said, or made claim, that waterfowlers were in any way sane! So, being up at 4 a.m. this time of year is, for us, normal.
    Our 4 a.m. last Thursday started with breakfast in the shop, in lieu of the duck blind. Course, as soon as we finished it was off to the blind, which is "just down the road a ways."

  • Deer - Gordon

    Dustin Gordon killed this 9-point buck on Nov. 11. He is the son of Barry and Chequita Gordon.

  • Deer - Greenwell

    Gregory Greenwell, age 11, bagged this 9-point buck on opening day of fall deer season 2012 with his father. His parents are Greg and Nicole Greenwell of Loretto.

  • Deer - Robertson

    Tammy Robertson of Lebanon shot this 10-point buck with a Remington .243 in Green County on private land. It weighed 200 pounds.

  • Deer-Brady

    Chris Brady of Lebanon took this 10 point buck on Sunday, Nov. 11, in Marion County during opening weekend of the 2012 Modern Gun Deer Season.

  • Safety harnesses are not just for wimps

    Well, our 2012 big gun season is over in Zone 3. But, you can hunt Zone 2 until Nov. 25. So if you have friends in Zone 2, it's time to go visit!
    My sons have a lease in Adair/Green counties that's half in each county. The gravel lane that dissects their lease is part of the actual county line.
    So, for the next week they can't hunt four of their stands...in Adair County! But they can hunt their Green county stands!

  • Deer hunting envy

    The first weekend is gone as I write this. Saturday morning we were greeted by what would normally be unseasonably warm weather. Then, Sunday gave us a pretty windy day.
    To the best of my knowledge that would be excuse No. 14 for Saturday and No. 20-something for Sunday!
    So that was my 10 to 12 hours each day in a tree stand. Unfortunately, that was the story from the majority of my friends.
