Weekend duck report:

Here’s this weekend’s duck report! ******************************** Okay, it was this cold and a lot of duck waters froze up.

What a year: big bucks 2021

My goodness, this year has been amazing for big deer. I don’t know whether it’s the results of continued efforts at management or just one of those years in the woods where everything is coming together for the big deer. It’s got record book readers scrambling to see how this will all shake out. But … Continue reading
