Fall brings with it something for everyone in the field from the angler to the hunter.  Just a few recent sessions of shooting the bull tell me that autumn is for the youngest of outdoorsman just learning the games to those of us more seasoned with our eyes focused dead ahead on for example, the whitetail rut.

    TRYING TO CATCH WILEY-E-COYOTE: NOV 10-16 THIS IS NOT THE SAME COYOTE OF OLD Of all the animal species that I trap, coyotes give me the most grief.

It also makes a guy a little nervous walking through t...

    By Darrell Pendergrass I spent a lot of time in my tree stand this past deer season – a lot of time. I’m sure people get sentenced to less jail time for minor crimes than I spent in the tree stand this year. Honestly.
