Three or four weeks ago, a friend of my son asked Randy to join him on a winter hike. He planned on doing the Great Range in the Adirondack High Peaks. That hike would be about 17 miles, and he was going to do it in just one day. Randy declined, because he didn’t feel he had the equipment fo…
I got an e-mail from an old friend last weekend, inviting me to go for a hike up Bramley Mountain. Now as you know, I normally hike in good weather and ski in the winter, but what the heck. I thought it would be something different.
Now, you all know that I like to tell stories about our skiing episodes, especially when one of my friends crashes. It’s always fun to watch, and tell those tales when they aren’t hurt. Well, the other day we were skiing, and it happened to me. Both Bill and Wayne insisted that I tell you my…

A week or so ago, my buddy Rich and I went cross country skiing at Gilbert Lake. We had originally planned on parking up at the other end of the lake and ski to the Lake of the Twin Fawns, and on around the loop. Well, so much for that idea. The road was only plowed to the parking lot at the…

Recently, the Department of Environmental Conservation released its Deer Management Plan for the next 10 years. Before discussing some of the points included in the proposal, I should make a few points that I feel are important. Sure, there are areas with more does than are good for the habi…
Let me bring you up to date. On July 27th I came off my hill with my tractor and brush hog from mowing. As I drove down to the next level, a huge buck in velvet stood up from some blackberry briars and ran across in front of me. It was the biggest whitetail buck I had ever seen on our proper…

Can you go outside on a clear night and find the North Star? It’s part of the Little Dipper. Have you seen Orion or Taurus the Bull? How many of you have seen a shooting star? Could you tell the difference between a Monarch butterfly and an Eastern tiger swallowtail? Do you know an ash tree …

A couple of years ago I went up the hill to our pond. The day before we had caught a bunch of fish which I fileted and cooked for dinner. I dumped the skins and scrap over in the tall grass, knowing that something would come along and eat it. As I approached the water that morning two huge b…

I have been spending a lot of time up in trees lately. Bow season is on, and being 15-feet up gives the hunter a slight advantage. I get up at five o’clock most mornings and head up the hill to one of the stands I have. Some are ladder stands, while others are climbers. I get up in the tree …
You might have noticed as you drive around the countryside, deer are everywhere. They are in the fields, as well as the highways. But, to the bow hunter, this is our time of year.

It’s a known fact. Porcupines cannot throw or shoot their quills. If your dog gets quills in its mouth it wasn’t the fault of the porcupine. He didn’t throw his quills into the dog. The dog bit him. I’ve stood less than a foot from one of those spiny creatures and just had him look up at me …
As the days grow shorter, the geese fly south and the leaves paint our forests with a flood of brilliant, beautiful colors, something stirs within me. I have spent a lifetime wandering the woods in search of deer, grouse and other wild creatures. It is part of my soul. This fall is no differ…
