Some books for the rest of summer
Stretching out in a hammock with a good book is a great way to relax on a warm summer afternoon. Here are a few titles that have recently caught my eye.
Creating a week to remember
After my traveling shoes were placed neatly beside the door, it was time to spend some much needed time around home.
There are some changes on the way
Hunters who have found themselves driving out of their way to check in a deer, turkey, or bear will no longer have to waste the time or gas starting in 2015.
The cure for the summertime blues: Go camping
In case you haven’t noticed we are looking right down the gun barrel at winding down on another summer.
Coda and Callie’s excellent adventure
How is it something that you profess to love so much can cause you so much anxiety and grief? No, I’m not talking about dealing with your children (or your spouse). This is worse. This is about dogs. More specifically, hunting dogs.

Attention all West Virginia hunters and trappers. It is once again time for outdoor summer school and the course materials are hot off the presses.
Meet the Eurasian collared-dove
Back in 1974 a local pigeon fancier imported a flock of about 50 Eurasian collared-doves to the Bahamas. Ultimately he released the birds, and they took to living in the West Indies. By the late 1970s some had reached south Florida, and by the late 1980s, some had been seen in Georgia and Arkansas.
July in W.Va.: Recreational opportunities abound
It’s July in the West Virginia mountains, which brings vibrant orange tiger lilies, blooming rhododendron, and of course fireworks. Usually the heat and humidity is in full force, but so far the weather has been nice.
Shotgun 101: Shoot more and live better
“God is not on the side of big battalions, but on the side of those who shoot best.”
Fireflies are living lights
At recent Fourth of July fireworks displays, spectators squealed with delight at the annual spectacle that illuminated the night sky. And I’m sure more than a few compared the spectacular pyrotechnics to the subtler displays of fireflies that punctuate backyards, parks, and campgrounds all summer long. We call these displays “nature’s fireworks.”
