If you happen to come across a lynx, the DEC wants to know
I was buying bananas in one of our local supermarkets the other day. A gentleman came up to me and said how much he enjoyed my columns. I thanked him and he went on to tell me he had seen a lynx in his backyard near East Meredith.

It's the right time to hunt, but you won't be alone
Let me ask you a question. What does a chipmunk have in common with a marching band on Main Street? They make about the same amount of noise.

Don't let time tick away if you contract Lyme Disease
The other day, my oldest son asked me to help him remove a couple of ticks from one of his cats.

In the Adirondacks, not all bucks are created equal
Opening day of deer season in the Adirondacks has always been a special time of year.

Creatures of nature are truly amazing
I sat in my tree stand the other day quietly waiting for the right deer to come along. As I've said before, I'm not a patient person. I'm not a good sitter, so I have to find something to occupy my mind.

Sometimes it's just fun to watch
The other day, I moved a ladder stand to a big, white pine tree not far from a wild apple tree in my old pasture. The deer had been feeding there regularly as the apples fell to the ground. Last night before dark, I took my bow and headed out.

Good luck hunting bear in Adirondacks|
A couple of weeks ago, a friend asked me where he should go to hunt bears in the Adirondacks. I told him he would be better off staying home, but he was rather insistent.

Remember to play it safe this hunting season
It's hard to believe that bow season starts next week, on the first of October. I'm not sure what the hurry seems to be. Heck, on Tuesday I saw a small buck standing along one of the county roads that was still in velvet. Last week, a friend of mine watched five nice bucks still running together in a bachelor group. But as I think about it, it would be nice to have some fresh venison on the grill.

People make hiking more interesting
I hesitate to write more about my Mt. Marcy climb, but some things about the hike are still lingering in my head. Those "things" are the people you meet along the trail.

Third shot at climb turned out just fine
They say that the third time's the charm. That's the way it was for my good friend George and I.
