SUMOFest 2015

To keep confusion to a minimum, I feel like I have to offer an explanation of why there were an unusual number of government drones, NSA and FBI vehicles and other unusual law enforcement/spying activities in our area late last week. It had nothing to do with the election. It was a typical government over-reaction … Continue reading

Several short shots . . .

Guess what is showing up in the woods today that hasn’t been there for months? Deer tracks.  It was so dry, so long, you couldn’t hardly find a deer track anywhere except in the slightly muddy edges of some almost dried up water hole.  I believe the rest of the week you will be able … Continue reading

No ordinary deer discussion

I finished up scattering a little deer plot seeding Friday and thanks to a group of really nice guys helping an old man out, got a new deer stand set, bushes trimmed and some corn and rice bran placed in strategic spots in anticipation of Saturday’s upcoming opening day hunt. But Saturday, while enjoying the … Continue reading

The two groups teamed up to build two handicap … Continue reading

Shining through

A river run with Brett Preuett

They say a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work. While, for the most part, that may be true, Brett Preuett of Monroe says it isn’t as simple as it seems. “If I have a bad day fishing, it’s pretty much a bad day at work, too,” says the young man … Continue reading

Deer crazies….No, they didn’t

Bow season has already started and the gun hunters are getting antsy to have their shot at the deer.  Antsy, by the way, is a term that denotes you can’t sit still any longer because you feel like you’ve got ants in your pants.
