  • More ways to get a bullfrog

    In my last column I told you about taking bullfrogs. I mentioned gigging and shooting them with a .22 caliber rifle.
    Since the column came out, I’ve been informed of other methods of taking them.

It was a decent size turn out for the small community. The race began at the elementary school and looped around Sportsman Lake, then back to the school for the finish.
    There were many students from Calvary, but also from the other elementary schools as well as well as adults.
