Open Season: With spring on its way, time to switch gears
As winter gradually relinquishes its clammy hold, hunters and fishermen are experiencing 'tween time: that seemingly expansive nether-region until spring. My outdoors OCD kicked into high gear last week with the stretch of above-freezing temperatures. What to do: Go ice fishing...

Open Season: Even if 'the fish are a bonus,' it still is a ton of fun to try
"The fish are a bonus." My dad's famous line; uttered in a slow, melodic way like an algebra teacher explaining the Pythagorean Theorem. Count on hearing it the moment a disgruntled fisherman grumbles about the day's catch - or lack thereof. "Catching isn't important," he continues,...

Open Season: It's good to have priorities in check, especially for sportsmen
"Obsessive" is a word I hear often in my presence. "Driven" would be another, and "passionate," too. But I think the best word to sum up my outdoors enthusiasm is "compulsive." My wife, Erin, once asked me something a true sportsman should never have to answer: "If you had to...

Open Season: A wild imagination, frozen lake lead to memorable time ice fishing
Peering into the muddled, turquoise abyss below, it's hard not to let one's imagination run free. Who really knows what scaled monstrosities cruise the depths? Especially when bait - this time, an impaled fathead minnow - fervently pulses against its unwilling bondage. The sun...

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...

What's all the fuss about pheasants?
I have a confession: I'm not the biggest fan of pheasants. There, I said it. All you North Dakotans out there please don't hate me. If you would be so kind as to not slash my tires after reading this column, I would appreciate it. In all honesty, pheasants and the subsequent pursuit...
