Buttons and Bows and Practice, Practice, Practice

Weekend, August 11, 2018 – There’s this old song: “East is east and west is west, and the wrong one I have chose, Let’s go where they keep on wearin’ rings and things and buttons and bows.” As an ‘old school’ bowhunter – I shot mostly a recurve – I was…

Weekend, August 11-12, 2018 – Every year as summer heat begins to slowly drift into memory and fishing had fulfilled its promises thoughts of deer and elk hunting began to come into focus.

Hold Yer Horses!

Hold Yer Horses!

Weekend, August 4-5, 2018 – There was this city kid. Grew up in what used to be a normal neighborhood. At age 8 he was building sidewalk scooters – old roller skates nailed to one-inch thick boards with a 1×1” post and handle. Worked well mostly despite falling off many times and crashing into the…

Talkin’ Guns for Weekend Edition

Talkin’ Guns

Weekend, July 28 – 29, 2018 – There’s never been a gathering of shooters anywhere that didn’t include long dissertations about guns.  Guns this, guns that. While few vocalizations among gun owners ever came to blows, any and all sides of the discussion had their biases. Today, much of the discussion focuses on gun rights and…

The Pain of Losing My Best Friend

WEEKEND, Friday, July 20, 2018 — On the wall above my desk hangs my canine Rogue’s Gallery, pictures of my six golden retrievers.  They’re all gone now – three males and three females – having lived out their lives after some great years long past.

Nephew Nurturing

Weekend, July 14-15, 2018 – As it turns out, my family consisted of three boys who fly fished. One wasn’t a hunter but he was a hunting guide for a time, taking Idaho elk hunters to their wilderness happy hunting grounds. He, too, ended up not just as a fly fisherman but a truly addicted fly fisherman. His near…

When Even the Critters Can’t Get Along

Weekend, July 6-7, 2018 – When you spend much of your life in the outdoors – not just hunting and fishing but living within wildlife habitat – your book of memories over the years get filled with stories about human-animal encounters. For example, during a long past deer season bowhunting in…

Bring On the Bacon

Weekend, June 30-July1, 2018 –  Yes, it’s summer. Hunting season is still weeks away and fidgety hunters have already boot-and-polished their bows and their guns until there’s not much else to do but wait.  But wait! That’s the TV barker’s hymn, meaning there’s more to come.  And, yes, there is.  That’s because there are…

Raging Crossbows

Weekend, June 23-24, 2018 — I shot a recurve bow. It was my faith in it (and probably a lot of practice) that put me on the road to bowhunting. I never gave up my love for rifles; my deer gun, for instance was – and still is – a .257 Roberts. My elk rifle was a 7mm…

Watchable Wildlife

Weekend, June 16-17, 2018 — I know it’s a cliché, but to a hunter, all wildlife is watchable with one nearly worth as much as any other. That changes only with the waning summer and the coming autumn. But summer is that flex time of year when hunters begin to get nervous and start thinking about what they’ll…

Commercial Gun Ranges Are All the Rage

Weekend, June 2-3, 2018 – There was a day not so long ago when gun ranges were little more than a few benches and well-worn trails between the bench and the 100 yard target generally made up of hammering a couple of sticks in the ground and stapling paper pie plates to them. Finding  a commercial gun range was…

FIREPOWER – The June Issue is Here!

For Florida, Publix and politics are a bad mix

TAMPA BAY.COM May 18, 2018 – Say it ain’t so. Tell me my favorite grocery store — the trusted green-and-white icon of many a Florida childhood, a chain woven into the fabric of this state, as dependable as decent asparagus, tidy aisles and bag boys you’re not supposed to tip — is not being talked about in the same breath as the National Rifle Association.
