True dog days of summer
On Saturday, it was 95 degrees as gusting winds blew heat like a hairdryer set on "inferno." By Sunday morning, people donned light jackets to brace against the 30-degree temperature...

Open Season: Wind, waves, walleyes sure signs of spring
The wind whipped Ottertail Lake into a wave-riddled froth resembling an army of white-helmeted soldiers marching to war. Then the trolling motor quit. When dead in the water on angry...

Open Season: Follow the catfish food chain
Fishing is as simple or complicated as a person makes it. In its most basic form, willing a creature to ingest a dangling bait can mean nothing more than the...

Open Season: Reuben venison sandwiches a culinary conglomerate
For the longest time, I considered corned beef a "mystery meat," akin to bologna or summer sausage. Thinly sliced and neatly stacked behind glass deli counters, the scarlet-hued flesh seemed...

Open Season: Snow geese sure signs of spring
Hunting waterfowl in the spring can be a tad unnerving. For one thing, it's weird being in a field that is about to be planted instead of harvested. Then there's...

Open Season: Good fish come to those who work
A slab of sapphire ice a foot-and-a-half thick and the size of a dinner table jutted forth from Red Lake like the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Around it,...

The good, the badlands, and the ugly dogs
Remy's tail wagged fervently as he worked the ground ahead. A strong breeze from the west pushed scent perfectly in his direction, and the 19-month-old pup used it to his...

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,...

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...

Open Season: Tough to beat a Minnesota ruffed grouse hunt
As my dog and I rounded the bend, the birch-laded woods appeared to part like intricately painted cardboard props in a Shakespearian play. A stick- and leaf-strewn path popped into...
