Really care? Leave them there!

It’s the time of year when lots of baby wild animals and birds are now on the outdoor scene in Nebraska. Interactions with these cute animals at a distance can be fun and educational. However, please remember that it is illegal and unsafe (for both you and the little critter) to harbor or possess young wildlife. It’s also inhumane to remove young wildlife from its natural surroundings/habitat (including your own backyard)! What’s interesting is that, although you may not see it, there’s a parent animal or …

A Season of Firsts

I’ve always said the outdoor world presents many different twists and turns, and that’s what makes it so intriguing! I compare entering the outdoor world anytime to going out on that first date: You’re excited, you’re nervous, you’re not wanting to forget anything, you’re probably overdressed and you’re wondering what eventualities might take place. But, I think spending as much time as possible in the field and trying new things improves your overall outdoor knowledge and skill level. In my mind, you’re able …

A Memorial Day Weekend Tribute

The three-day Memorial Day weekend is about the fun of getting together with family and friends for cookouts, camping expeditions, fishing excursions, river float trips, etc. However, Memorial Day weekend is truly about saluting and remembering those individuals in the U.S. Military who lost their lives while in the service to our country, particularly in combat. My thoughts also drift to my son-in-law, Tyler Nichols of Omaha, NE. Tyler is currently serving with the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, NC. Tyler and …
