1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

I was invited to shoot in the John Rollins memorial pistol shoot recently. Reading this name caused bells to go off. I have told the story a few times of spending an unexpected night alone in the Maine woods while hunting back in the early 90's. I checked the Obit and much to my amazement it...

It was golden hour on the French River and the bass action was turning on. Just about every other cast resulted in a fish and it was one of those days were if you weren't on the water then you would never believed the fishing was that good. There is an old saying in the Canadian bush that says...

There is this neat little uninhabited island on the Taunton River. I’ve spear fished the waters surrounding this island often and one memorable Fall they tested me. It sits like a cork just south of where the Stone Bridge was in Tiverton before the big storm of 1938 rearranged the landscape...

As of lately I have acquired a new job. Yes it is true I have joined the adult world and while I must attend work everyday its not horrible. Everyday at 12 I go on a walk through the woods since at my work we have wood trails. After that though there is an urgency and a yearning in my soul. The...

When you hear the word time what is the first thing that pops into your head? Did you just look at your watch, the clock on the wall or computer screen? Time is something that is sacred to every one of us. It can be our best ally when we can manage it in our favor, but can also be our greatest...

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...
