     Dove shooting tip: Shoot where they’ll be, not where they are!

    It was finally here, actually open till 11 a.m. At least, it didn’t open till 11 a.m. the Green River WMA (Wildlife Management Area). While I had an excellent spot for the following weekend … on private land … I was content to find this WMA.

  • Volleyball: Lady Knights defeat...

    The Marion County Lady Knights went 1-1 during their first week of play. The senior loaded team started off with a loss against the Nelson County Lady Cardinals (1-0) and a victory over the Campbellsville Lady Eagles (0-3),

  • What a bummer

     It’s Saturday night, and it has been a very long week. 

    Before I go on, I would like to say I had the majority of a welcome back Marion County Knights and Lady Knights column written up. 

    But because of the football Knights’ season opener has been rescheduled, I figured the welcome back column could wait a week, but something must be said about Aug. 23. 

  • Soccer: Knights beat heat, Eagles

     Braving a heat index of 101 degrees, the Marion County Knights (1-1) defeated the Campbellsville Eagles, 5-1, to open their season last week. Sophomore forward Alan Guzman and senior forward Anthony Bradshaw led the Knights’ attack with two goals each while the team ran the trap successfully to catch the Eagles (1-1) off sides seven times. 

    Knights Coach Greg Conley said though the team won by a large margin, they still have work ahead of them.

  • Soccer: Lady Knights drop 2 of 3...

     After losing their first game of the season to the Garrard County Lady Lions, 6-0, the Lady Knights went on to host the Bardstown Lady Tigers on Aug. 20 at the Graham Memorial Park soccer fields. Cutting through puddles and mud, the Lady Knights fell 8-1 in that contest.

    After the game, Lady Knights Coach Derek Cissell had only praise for the team, telling them: “Hey ladies, I’m proud of you.”

  • If you can’t beat the heat, just...

     This has been one of those weeks where it’s been way too hot for me to do much outdoors!

    So what does one do?

    Around here, that’s a question easily answered. There’s always guns to be cleaned. I know, I said clean guns after every hunt, and I do. But, it’s a known fact that guns ca never be too clean! 

    So, out came the shotguns, rifles and my muzzleloader.
