While visiting with my folks last week near Weatherby, I noticed a flock of a dozen or so birds land on their high bush cranberry’s. The shrubs still had several red fruits on them and the birds were really working them over. Dad had a pair of 10 x 42 binoculars handy so I checked out the berry...
( Information for this article was taken from the original story written by Vanessa Kauffman, ) After two days of competition, Eddie LeRoy of Eufaula, Alabama, emerged as the winner of the Federal Duck Stamp competition with his painting of a black-bellied whistling-duck pair. This is LeRoy’s first...
I was recently comparing lights that attach to the handle bar of by bicycle on a bike shop website. Some of the lights listed the number of Lumens and some just said for example, 80 candlepower.  Since outdoors folks also shop for headlights and flashlights, this seemed like an appropriate subject...
            Due to the way the calendar works, the firearms deer season opened about as late this year as it ever will under the current format used by the Department of Conservation. It should have been a bonus for archery hunters but the start of the “extra week” saw single digit  temperatures...
For the past month, I have slipped off to a tree stand in the woods or spent the last few hours of daylight in a blind just off a clover field with my bow hanging close by as often as I could. I had noticed that I had been hearing white fronted geese, sometimes called speckled bellies passing...

By the time this goes to print, the calendar will have turned to October. The forecast  for later this week indicates morning temperatures should be in the 40*s. It’s time to head to the woods to experience the best days of the year.   October 1 marks the opening of the fall firearms turkey season...
Last week I checked a couple of trail cameras that I have set up in the woods. Starting about the seventh, the first hard horns on bucks started showing up. By hard horns, I mean the velvet that had protected the growing antlers all summer had all been rubbed off by the owner of the antlers. In...
What is the second most common duck in North America, behind the Mallard? If you answered. “Blue-winged Teal” you were correct. The population of these birds has remained stable over the last 40 years. By stable, the literature means they fluctuate between a continental population of between 3 to 7...
