Open Season: A lot to be thankful for in North Dakota outdoors
The morning chill was every bit the 17 degrees promised by my digital truck thermometer, if not less. Almost immediately upon removing the Remington 870 pump shotgun from its case, lacy veins of frost enveloped the matte-finished barrel. There was no snow on the ground, but a slight...

Open Season: While meat may be meat, venison is not just venison
In my circles, seldom do I get a "hi" this time of year. And normally a talking standard, weather now rarely is a topic-starter - unless it's how the hunting has been affected by it. No, more often than not, the first words out of someone's mouth are: "Did you get your buck?" Which,...

When in the woods, patience in priceless
The doe froze, legs slightly splayed after coming to an abrupt halt not 15 yards to my right. Dry oak leaves scuttled past, carried by a light west wind. She stared at me. I stared back. Neither of us daring to make the first move. "Just take a step," I thought, scrunching...

Plan ahead to make deer opener more enjoyable
My friends call me "boy scout." My wife, Erin, actually coined the term, but it quickly caught on between hunting buddies. This mainly happened because, even though I've never donned a merit badge-adorned sash, I take pride in careful preparation, especially before going afield...
