Reflecting on how I almost missed spring
After an absence of two weeks, I’m back. Because I heard from so many of you (thank you for the cards and e-mails), I thought an explanation was in order.
We’ll tell our grandchildren about this crazy winter
The winter of 2014 has been a cold and snowy one for sure and I’m wondering if it’s ever going to stop. It’s really put a damper on my outdoor activities and I’m starting to get cranky. I can see years from now telling our grandchildren about the winter of 2014 and how bad it was. About how we had to walk through snow in below-zero temperatures just to make it to school … Wait a minute, that’s not this generation as they hardly ever go to school anymore let alone walk to it. Especially this winter!

Remember to wipe your feet
Some people love the idea of daylight saving, while others find it simply disrupting and confusing.
The promise of Spring
When we first stepped into the woods Tuesday morning I knew you could tell it was coming, the past months have been long and hateful, but the promise that we have cannot be denied. Like the cottontail that runs in his circle as the beagles plead with us to be ready, it is not here yet, but it is coming. The line of geese we saw in the evening, headed due north, said the same thing: Not yet, but it’s coming. As outdoorsmen we stand with our brothers everywhere, steeped in our anticipation of all that is to come, the promises that have been bestowed to us and handed down for generations.
Turkey-hunting proving a lifetime pursuit
I started hunting turkeys when I was in high school. Back then, my passion for hunting was almost entirely consumed by bow hunting until I was introduced to the sport of turkey hunting by a friend. My friend had no clue how to hunt turkeys but he was extremely dedicated to figuring it out — and so was I.
Enjoying a late-season rabbit hunt
Late-season hunting opportunities have been few and far between with the winter we’ve been having. The last weekend of February, the temperatures finally warmed up enough to thaw things out. With a break in the weather my buddy Jason invited me along for a rabbit hunt before the season ended.
