Double down for pheasants during opener in Minnesota
This year's pheasant opener was unique in a number of ways. It was the first time I had opened the season somewhere other than North Dakota, with kickoff usually held at my grandmother's farm near Watford City, N.D. in the company of my dad, brother, uncle and cousins. The hunting...

Low pheasant numbers raise questions as to why counts are down

Journey to bow hunting, the shot that cannot be practiced
I had saved every check from writing these columns and all the money I had received from my birthday and holiday gifts in one of my favorite outdoor books. By April, I had $973.25 socked away in the pages of Bill Heavy's latest compilation. This money was accumulated over eight months...

No kidding, it's time to prep for hunting
An annual joke between my wife and I begins round about Sunday on Memorial Day weekend, when I start telling her "summer is just about over." A quick glare or a jab to the shoulder gets me chuckling. From that point on, I say it after any nice weekend on the lake, and particularly...

Rock the docks with thrill of bass fishing
A great summer pastime for many people is the attendance of open air concerts, from a battle of the bands contest at the county fair, to the raucous campsite echo of WE Fest, to the hard charging 80's covers done by Hairball, this season is a rocking good time, with an edge and a...
