  • Good riddance to the year 2015

    By Shelton Young

    As we head into 2016 and wish 2015 goodbye, all I can say is “good riddance.” Not that I, along with everyone else, enjoys being a year older. It’s just that I spent most of the year confined to my recliner looking out the window. A severely broken arm will do that for you!
    So, in 2016, I intend to – if I don’t break anything else – start work on my bucket list.

  • Do yourself a favor - take a kid deer hunting

    Happy holidays this X-Mas season.
    Now I don’t know about you but I think that’s a load of manure! This is a warning, if you’re easily offended you best stop reading right now… fair warning issued!
    Here’s wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
    Yep, I said it. Felt no shame doing it and with very little regard to anyone’s delicate sensitivities!
    Oh yeah, “This does not reflect the views of The Lebanon Enterprise.”

  • What’s the best hunting vehicle? Whatever ya got!

    First off I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! And so you’ll know it’s from me and not The Lebanon Enterprise, I guess I better put in the standard: “This message does not reflect the views of The Lebanon Enterprise or any of its employees”… except me! Now that I’m all “politically correct” I feel better… stupid for having to say that… but better.
    I was once asked what kind of “hunting vehicle” I have.

  • Guns aren’t dangerous, but people with guns are

    Just so you’ll know, what I’m writing about in this week’s article is my take on things. It’s not meant to express the views of The Lebanon Enterprise or anyone else.
    To be clear, I own guns! They are my responsibility and the misuse of them falls on me. And, over the years, no one has said anything about that fact nor, as far as I know, written a letter to the editor complaining about my guns or my hunting!

  • Youth hunters are successful
  • Plenty of prime deer hunting time left

    Just read an interesting article! Seems there are 600,000 licensed hunters in Wisconsin. This would make them the eighth largest army in the world. Consider all the other states… some with more, some with fewer hunters (all with guns)… and you have quite an impressive number of armed citizens. And that number just reflects hunters… who are licensed… I’m not counting paper-punchers and people who own guns for self-defense or the military. Now I realize there are some crossovers but anyway you cut it, that’s a lot of gun owners.

  • Camo up, hide in your blind, and collect some birds this season

    It was a good week of hunting … though not productive. I passed on a couple of four pointers and one six.
    If you remember, I said I’d shoot the first doe I saw. Well, I should’ve said I’d shoot the first doe I could “safely” shoot.
    The does I saw last Thursday … 11 in one field… all presented shots that would have been questionable at best. In reality, I “might could’ve shot” but it was about then minutes before I would’ve run out of shooting light, and time!

  • ‘Big gun season’ is here

    Saturday was the opening of Kentucky’s 2015 deer season for modern, centerfire firearms! This is also known to us rednecks as “big gun season.”
    As you’re reading this rest assured there have been otherwise sane men and women who’ve been living in the woods for days. Well, they might come back to civilization to sleep in a real bed or maybe eat a meal without having to pick the bugs out of your beans!
