    By Mike Yurk We were pushing through a cut over corn field when the rooster pheasant exploded out of a small spot of weeds. As the bird gained air I heard one shot and then a second. The bird crumpled and collapsed, hitting the ground. Doug had fired the second shot that dropped the bird. Gunner, the black lab belonging to Nathan, charged across ...

    By Darrell Pendergrass The hunting had been good the morning before, the two boys taking a full limit of ducks on a little slough just northeast of Cando, North Dakota. The youth waterfowl hunt brought us here to the north central part of the state; it was to be our big fall trip for the season. Spending the night in sleeping bags at the town cam...

    By Mike Yurk The wind blows steadily across the ocean and the waves boiled. The skies are blue and it is chilly in the early morning with the wind coming off the ocean. The smell of salt water is in the air. We are standing on a pier waiting for our fishing boat to pick us up. All in all it is a nice day to get a fish fry. A few days earlier Bruc...

    By Darrell Pendergrass Of all the walleyes caught in Canada during this past trip there is one that’s more memorable than all the other ones combined. It wasn’t the biggest that we caught. Arguably, it didn’t put up the best fight. But it stands out. In our crew there were 24 anglers who went to Lac Seul, about three hours nort...

    By JJ Reich Wild turkey hunting in the fall with dogs was foreign to me. But a good friend of mine, Brett Berry, a member of Zink Calls' Elite Calling Team, is a turkey doggin’ addict. Over the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to hunt with him and his dogs on several early October weekends in Ohio. Fall turkey doggin’ is ve...

    By John Luthens It ended with my nephews jumping from the end of a dock into Pewaukee Lake.  It was nine in the morning, with sun sparkling onto the green water and cotton ball clouds rolling lazily above. My brother and I stood laughing, and indeed it was the two of us who had put the idea in the kids’ heads in the first place. On the...

For those of you who love the outdoors, the Sylvania Wilderness Area should be at the top of your list for places to visit in the Midwest. Located near Watersmeet Michigan, Sylvania off...

    By Darrell Pendergrass We’ll be in Canada next week at this time and we’ve already gotten our most important piece of equipment packed and ready to go. This particular item is a must-have when going north, but it’s one of those over-looked things that usually goes amiss. Is it a fishing pole, you ask? Come on, there’s so m...

    By Darrell Pendergrass My grandparent’s place in rural western North Carolina was situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains; it always seemed old there when we’d go to visit, yet comfortable and familiar. When I was a boy the summers there were extraordinarily hot during the day, but eventually the coolness of night would ...
