  • Mid-KY Bass Anglers’ first tournament is Sunday

     Just in case you’ve missed it for several weeks, the Mid-KY Bass Anglers will fish their first tournament on Sunday.

  • Coyote hunting has been a learning experience

     We had an interesting time at the Kiwanis Auction Sunday. Not only did everyone participating have a good time, we raised about $4,700 that’ll go back toward programs for our Marion County kids.

    I’d like to thank everyone who worked, bought stuff and especially those who donated items, cash and goods to make our auction a success.

    It’s merely “put on” by the Kiwanis Club. The money we raise isn’t ours, it’s the kids.

  • Be careful about who you take hunting, fishing with you

     It’s been kind of a blah week with very little going on. However, after last week’s article, I did secure two more farms to hunt coyotes on!

    So where are these farms? Well, they’re in Marion County! Ya didn’t actually think I’d put it in print, did ya? Not because I don’t want to share. It’s because I don’t want to burden landowners with having everyone calling them about hunting their property, and OK, I don’t really want to share.

  • Coyote hunters and farmers may be able to help one another

     This past week, while getting my coyote hunting stuff organized, I had an epiphany. OK, epiphany is a sudden realization or comprehension. Anyway, I had one!

    There are a lot of calves born right now. Calves are money on the hoof. Nobody likes losing their money.

    Coyotes like to eat newborn calves thus taking a farmer’s money. I, and some friends, like to shoot coyotes. Dead coyotes can’t eat your calves, or deer or quail, songbirds, dogs, cats, etc.

  • What’s good for the goose hunter

    First, I need to tell you all about the Delta Waterfowl Banquet coming up at 5 p.m. Saturday. in Floral Hall at the Marion County Fairgrounds. The meal will be at 6:30 p.m., which will give you plenty of time to play the games, buy some raffle tickets and bid on some items.
    You’ll also meet some outstanding guys and maybe hear some interesting stories, some of which might be true. Ya don’t think the only tall tales are told by anglers do ya?

  • Sore shoulders are just part of a good goose hunt

     After I whined about the recent early deadlines I had over the holidays, I’m now enduring a self-imposed early deadline, turn in Saturday instead of Sunday.

    This one I can live with cause it involves leaving on a snow goose hunting trip. Terry, Billy, Ryan and I are heading to Arkansas to take part in their Light Goose Conservation Order Season.

  • Yankee groundhog predicts six more weeks of winter

    As you know, February is a very special month. Though not a major holiday – you know, where you get a day off work — it’s still special to a lot of people!
    We get all excited, plan for the big day and know if things work out, we might get lucky!
    Yep, Groundhog Day showed that we may, or may not, experience the luck of an early spring. Ya see, there’s this pampered, Yankee groundhog up in Pennsylvania that gets all the media attention.

  • Goose hunt goes well
  • Shooting crows, but not ready to eat any

     Once again I’m looking at an early deadline as I write this! And, once again it’ll be short. The upside is that you’ll have to wade through so much less  ****!  I’m figuring you know what I’m talking about!

    Tried something the other day. Course my grandfather and his “eat what ya kill” philosophy would have been pretty disappointed, but I just couldn’t stomach “eating crow.”

  • Listen up to learn about duck, predator hunting

    Ran across a guy the other day that asked why I had “gotten so up-ity.”
    When I recovered I asked him just what he was talking about.
    Seems like the last two times he’d seen me he, spoke to me and I walked away without even acknowledging his presence.
    I guess this might have happened before and will undoubtedly happen again so I’ll explain why.
    When I act like I don’t hear you, I don’t hear you! Boys and girls, I’m deaf! Well, just deaf in one ear, I still have about 50 percent in the other ear.
