On October 12, 2014, the Jayhawk Chapter of the Quail and Upland Wildlife Federation sponsored a youth pheasant hunt managed by the Eckman Hunting Preserve. The morning hatched a windy, drizzly dawn, but the spirits of the young guns were not dampened. About 48 kids showed up to participate and an ample number of bird […]

Close Calls!

Since we are in the midst of the “Dog Days of Summer” and ideas for a post are lacking, I decided to browse through my image archive and display a few from my “close call” file. Now you will soon see that some of these are suspect. I have been known to articulate semi-true stories […]

How Do You Know It Is Summer?

Evening fishing with a jitterbug. Gorging yourself on homegrown tomatoes, BLT’s and other goodies. Playing ridiculous games like miniature golf and  lawn darts (yes still have a set, OSHA go pound salt) Fireworks? Don’t burn your fingers! Have Fun!

Big Horn “Tonic”

My brief sojourn to the Big Horn River was tonic for my indigent soul.  Hindsight scrutiny revealed that one desperate trout fisher tested his luck dodging lightning bolts instead of napping in the truck, awaiting the clearing of skies. No luck was necessary to bring vigorous brown and cutthroat specimens to net. This stream originates […]

Outdoor Writers Association of America, 2014

I was fortunate to attend the Outdoor Writers Association of America conference in McAllen, Texas recently. There are many unique and exciting venues in far south Texas from fishing to bird watching.

Somewhere In Wyoming

The proud month of April could not make up its mind whether to cling to perpetual winter or “to open”, or start anew as per the Latin definition. I wade fished one day in blowing snow, but the following 24 hour period turned out to be the mildest, sunny day of 2014 in Wyoming. Regardless […]

Turkey

Demon Gobbler Meets His Maker

I had a most harrowing and miserable adventure while turkey hunting April 10 in the powdery dry eastern Kansas forest. While stealthily traversing the woods, I was literally overrun by a marauding platoon of scavenging turkeys and I did my best to perfect every damn fool mistake a man could create.  I could not initially […]

The Woods Are Awakening

I have been out in the woods antler shed hunting and scouting for Ole Mr. Longbeard but have had little success with either. However, the early spring forest is a soothing place for one’s soul. Some early migrants have been detected and the dog has put up a timber doodle and a small covey of quail. […]
