Cowboy Jon Sund is living his dream

Thursday, March 6, 2014

A real cowboy is more comfortable glued to a saddle than a recliner. He pays little attention to the time — more to the task at hand. Lunch might be a smashed sandwich pulled from a jacket pocket and a drink might be what’s left from yesterday. That is if there is a lunch at […]

Get ready! Turkey hunting season is coming

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Apparently, spring turkey season is the next big event. Forget everything else, because it is turkey, turkey, turkey from here on out. Not just in Ohio, but in nearly every state, where turkey hunters are like cash cows to marketers of outdoor gear. Our mailbox has been filled in recent weeks with catalogs, fliers, offers […]

This guy always catches fish, and he’s not bragging

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Valentine uses his sonar and GPS to provide him the information he needs to put his single most important theory for fishing success to life.

Coydogs are more of an urban legend than fact

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Ohio’s coyotes are everywhere, as in of the state’s 88 counties, according to Jamey Emmert, of the Division of Wildlife, who suggested that although the state has seen the number of coyotes increase rapidly in recent years, their numbers have seemed to have leveled off. But Ohio isn’t the only state with more than enough […]

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 […]

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. […]

‘Tis the season’ … to buy boats, sporting goods

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 […]
