    The New Year started off great for Marion County, with both the Knights and Lady Knights winning over Campbellsville on Jan. 2.
    The Lady Knights (6-5) played the Lady Eagles (5-9) first, and won, 58-24.
    “It was a good district win for our team,” Head Coach Anthony Epps said. “I really liked the effort and energy our team played with. It was our third win in a row. Hopefully, we can keep the momentum going in the New Year.”

  • Teaching, learning about hunting...

    Finally, after scouting for days, heck weeks, I found a field that a small flock of Canada geese were using (feeding in). One field, one flock. That's it!
    Anyway, Tate, my 11-year-old grandson, was coming over from Adair County, and we figured on giving the geese a try. I'd previously tweaked his interest by having him "watch" the geese, so he was hyped at an opportunity to shoot one.

  • Sensations during a squirrel hunt

    Have you ever had the feeling that things, especially bugs, were crawling on you. Especially at night!

    Imagine you’re in bed, feet tucked under the blankets, where it’s dark, the kind of place where spiders like to hang out. All of a sudden you feel “something.”

    And it feels like it’s moving.

    But is it, or isn’t it?
