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.

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 […]

Hunting and fishing aren’t what they used to be

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Electronics and technology have changed the way sportsmen do things. Anglers used to find fish by fishing for them. Of course using visible cues at known fish hangouts helped fishermen, in the hunt and so did good old fashion experience. If you caught fish near Smith’s boat dock or the around the rock pile by […]
