    When the weather’s bad and you’re stuck not being able to hunt or fish you start philosophizing (yes, that’s a real word) about stuff!
    What I’ve been thinking about is how alike most hunting and sport fishing are, which helps explain the obsession to do either or both!
    Take bass fishing and coyote hunting as examples. With both you have custom equipment you’ll use. A good truck for scouting and getting to your hunt location could compare to a bass boat. You need a boat to get from place to place, looking for a concentration of bass.

Cardinals Quarterback Kurt Warner had his team in position late in the first half to take the lead when he dropped back to throw at the two-yard line inside of the one. Steelers’ linebacker James Harrison, however, had other plans, as he dropped back into coverage and intercepted Warner's pass at the goal line.
