Don’t forget bear season is open was the last thing Dad had said to me as I entered the woods. He had less than a year to live at the time, which of course I did not know then; he had fallen the day before and decided not to hunt this day. It was a strange day, it snowed the night before, but...

Ok, so maybe it is just me. But I can hear several ladies out there cheering right along with me. The cuteness factor counts. It's why the makers out there are making hammocks in pretty colors, the gun makers are making pink and turquoise guns, and why places like Title9 exist for making us...

I glance over at the clock. The first digit glowing in the darkness is a three, dawn is way off but it’s time to get rolling. I check the temperature-- 70 degrees; it’s going to be a hot one. It’s the last day of the season, and Hazel and I have not shot a bird yet. Four weeks ago it was so...

“Hey, guess where I am?” comes my occasional hunting partner’s voice over the phone. “I don’t know, standing over a fresh kill I imagine” is my reply. “I wish, I’m waiting on a hand surgeon”. He went on to explain that he had indeed been standing over a bird, one he emptied a 3-1/2” 12 gauge...

I peer into the fog bound woods that are adjacent to my car door, and stretch my ears to listen for the tell tale yelp of a hen. Nothing. From the pocket of my overcoat I pull out my ancient crow call. Just a few months ago an accidental fall down a flight of stairs had found me in the ER and...

After reading through my previous four entries and making a few corrections to clarify and make them more readable, it occurs to me that I've had quite a lot of interesting experiences in my life. I've never really thought about my life that way, but having lived it all, it just seems fairly...

I've been kinda keeping track of this nuclear meltdown mess since it happened. The situation is much worse than the government or media will have you believe. I'm not a nuclear engineer or do I totally understand radiation terminology. What I do understand is that the Pacific Ocean is in dyer...

Hello Everyone, I joined BushcraftUSA in an attempt to further my knowledge. I am no bushcraft expert, however I spent a large amount of my free time growing up camping out with the Boy Scouts and my younger brother. As I am sure many of you can relate, as I "grew up" and began working...

The greatest thing I can make is a mistake... as long as I can learn from it. The most important thing I can do is be wrong... as long as I can learn from it. Before I learned anything about Bushcraft being a thing, I was/am an Ultralight Backpacker (can you hear the eyes rolling from that...
