What to do when your new neighbors have sharp teeth

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Your new neighbors might not be the ones you can see, but they can often be heard after dark, singing a scary tune, a song that can bring the hair on one’s neck to attention. In fact, these new neighbors are usually crude and secretive — traits you might not approve of — and you […]

Wild Ohio Magazine also serves as an informative and attractive calendar

Thursday, January 9, 2014

The recently distributed November/December Wild Ohio Magazine is not only an informative and fun, if not “wild” publication for Ohio’s outdoor enthusiasts, but it serves as the finest calendar one could ask for. The magazine comes to those who check the Wild Ohio box when purchasing licenses, and also to those who request it online. […]

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Boat and sporting shows abound for the winter season.

Although deer harvest was low, there’s still time

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Although there were more than 11,000 fewer deer killed this year during Ohio’s weeklong gun season, there’s not much to complain about. After all, a seven-day harvest that numbers more than 75,000 freezer-bound bundles of venison is nothing to sneeze at. Nevertheless, even with liberal bag limits in place for almost all of Ohio, this […]

A bunch of memories held in one smooth rock

Thursday, December 12, 2013

Good people and good places are the foundation for great memories, and all it takes to remind one of any or all of the three is sometimes as insignificant as a small rock. In this case it is a rock the size of an egg, but flat and polished from years of movement of sea […]

South Dakota’s pheasant numbers dwindling

Thursday, December 5, 2013

Last week, I wrote about Ralph Kohler, a lifelong waterfowl hunter who continues to host paying guests at his Missouri River pit blinds, something he’s done for 70 years. Arriving each day, groups of Kohler hunters meet well before daylight in a plain Jane, wood floor and make-your-hair stand-up coffee kind of restaurant, in downtown […]

Thankful for memorable hunts with memorable people

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

I give thanks for the opportunity to rub elbows with the Ralph Kohlers of the world.

A long, rewarding trip to Devil’s Lake

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Before leaving for North Dakota to hunt ducks on expansive Devil’s Lake, one of the nation’s premier waterfowl spots, I had wished for low gas prices, good weather, and a few other uncontrollable verbs. What I always dread are statements too often heard such as “you should have been here last week” and “the birds […]

Duck hunting: React and see what happens

Thursday, October 31, 2013

There’s just the slightest hint of light to the east, a promise of coming action. The law says that shooting time is one half hour before published daylight and duck hunters on the whole follow that decree to the minute. Digging in a pocket produced a new watch for a time check. Ducks It would […]

Be prepared: It’s important not to get caught outdoors without a camera

Thursday, October 24, 2013

That is, if a picture reminding one of that great memory exists and can be found. Thus, every hunter, angler, hiker, and outdoor enthusiast ought to be armed and somewhat familiar with a decent digital camera. A camera small enough for a handy inside pocket and loaded with an unfilled memory card and fully charged […]
