  • Rough Riders

    By Nick Schrager

    Like a swarm of hornets on steroids, motors roar.
    Rubber slashes at the dirt, which coats everything in its path.
    In the war-like chaos, there is silence as a rider launches himself off a mound appropriately referred to as 911.
    A grill smolders, a dog pants, a toddler sitting on her dad’s shoulders smiles.
    The rider lands, people cheer.
    “They make it look easy and so smooth,” Sharon “Sam” Bach of Lebanon said.

  • Looking for bass? Then prepare to go deep

    I had an announcement in my last week’s article about the Kid’s Fishing Derby at Sportsman Lake last Saturday.
    Unfortunately the article got cut and never made it to print. Not sure why, but sometimes it happens!
    Anyway, we had a good turnout and the kids all enjoyed themselves. Thanks go out to everyone who helped, especially the Mid-KY Bass Anglers and the Washington County High School Bass Club.
    A special thanks to Jason Spalding for organizing this years’ event.

  • A tale from froggin’

    Got a call telling me that I had an early deadline this week. This usually cases quite a predicament in that there’s nothing much happening in the four days since I turned in my last article.
    This time the pain of a short notification was lessened due to a recent froggin’ trip.
    It started at dark, which seemed to take awhile. I was at a pond owned by a friend with my light and gig.
    As it got dark the frogs started croakin’ so loud it was almost eerie. Of course I wasn’t scared, maybe a little nervous, but not scared.

  • Squirrel, frog seasons are underway

    In my last article I mentioned that we were sort of “between” gunning seasons. So, I suggested you try coyote hunting to ease the pain of not shooting!
    Since the article came out I was reminded of a couple of other opportunities to hunt!
    First, we have an early squirrel season we can take advantage of. It runs from May 18 until June 21 with a daily limit of six and possession limit of 12.

  • Keeping the coyote population under control

    I’m not one to advocate killing something just for the sake of killing. So when I say all coyotes should be shot, trapped or in some way eradicated it’s not just for the killing. It’s a matter of control!
    This point was brought to my attention during our turkey season. On two occasions I came across a pile of turkey feathers and some body parts. Don’t know why the feathers and body parts were left since a coyote usually eats everything.

  • Turkeys stay safe, away from hunter

    O.K. Score: Turkeys = several, me = zero. Oh, I saw birds, plenty of birds. But, they were either very young (small Jakes) or they hung up on me.
    Course the Jakes got to looking better the closer to season’s end it got. They also got wiser and the last week of the season even they started to hang up!

  • Turkey: Allen

    Jailyn Allen, age 8, killed her first turkey. It weighed 21.5-pounds, had a 9.5-inch beard and 1-inch spurs. She is the daughter of Joey and Gretta Allen of Lebanon.
