Many of us are spending more time at home now than ever before.  Global pandemics of highly infectious diseases with no known treatment or vaccine tend to have that effect, I guess.  In mid-March, most of our lives were changed in ways that are pretty hard to believe.  When the students left school...

One of the most misunderstood wildlife habitat management practices is spring burning of grasslands. I get calls all the time, and have for the past 20 years, with folks all upset about wildlife management agencies burning all the nests of pheasants, ducks and other ground-nesting songbirds. I...

It seems that we are on track for an earlier than average spring, and that means that this is the time to apply crab grass preventer.        Crab grass is an annual weed. The seeds don’t germinate until the ground temperature is warm, and that is happening now. This is a pre-emergence herbicide, so...

Snow in April is just a bummer, but it is better than last year when we had over 20 inches in the month of April. The month is not over yet so we will just have to see how the weather pans out. The snow came early enough that I have no reason to believe it will have any effect on pheasant nesting...

I have the very first gun I got when I was 11 years old. It is a lever action .22 rifle made by Browning. It looks brand new and I would never consider selling it. My dad gave it to me. Firearms are truly family heirlooms. I would never consider selling any gun I got from my dad. Buying a young...
