Grease Diet

This time of year I always try catching some pan fish. I really enjoy this slow, unhurried outdoor activity. It’s especially good after managing the deadlines of deer and turkey seasons, and an occasional bass tournament. There are no seasons for bluegill and crappie. If today is unsuccessful maybe I’ll go tomorrow; or maybe not. […]

The Perpetual Drain On Our Hearts

People are like batteries.  We are good to go for several miles.  We can charge into interference without the slightest flinch… once… well twice… well okay, maybe three times.  But afterwards our energy, we notice, begins to drain.  Our hearts have taken enough hits that we start to lose energy. No one is exempt from […]

When Old is Better 

When Old is Better 

by Nik for Dancing Rabbit “What do we say to power tools?” “NO!” The crowd roared in response. A man stood on a wooden stage in the middle of a crowded 10-bent timber frame barn; he held a broad ax aloft, like a mustachioed viking. Roy Underhill, long-time host of PBS’s The Woodwright’s Shop, which […]

My hunting has given way to fishing. At one time I actually did more fishing than hunting. But for the past several years it’s been hard to keep me out of the woods. My fishing has its extremes. I love the thrill of landing a big bass but I also love the serenity (and table […]

How Ralph The Homeless Man And I Made Someone’s Day

As I drive to work around 6:30, I’ve noticed an older man sitting upon a concrete wall near the curb.  He has a scraggly beard and matted hair.  He sits upright with head bowed as if asleep. Every time I see this man I wonder if he knows his value.  I wonder if he has […]

Hummingbirds Have Arrived

I bet you are seeing your hummingbirds now. They arrived at my house near Wyaconda on May  1. These cute little guys love a cool rainy morning and stay close to the feeders.  Make sure you keep them clean and replace the sugar water often.  Mine are empty almost daily, so I make new quite […]

Silence Does Not Equal Absence

I noticed my actions during a turkey hunt a few mornings ago. I had not heard a bird gobble for a few days, so there I was waiting again for that familiar sound. I always arrive just before daylight and make my way to a central place in order to be heard should I do […]
