  • Squirrel, frog seasons are...

    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.

  • The big decision

    Recently, a major decision in college basketball came down when the number one rated high school basketball player in the country made his college decision.  Andrew Wiggins from Huntington Prep picked the Kansas Jayhawks as his college team.  For weeks, many thought he would choose Kentucky and join the number one recruiting class in the nation.  If Wiggins had picked Kentucky, Coach John Calipari would have secured the number one player from each position in the ratings.
