Pics of One Animal, Get Another

One of the results of spending a lot of time in the field is capturing interesting wildlife photos. Sometimes, while shooting photos of one species you capture another. Such was the case recently when I was shooting photos of white-tailed deer in Washington County, NE. Did you note what’s in the background? I didn’t see that coyote initially when I was snapping pics of the deer. It goes to show that surprises make time outdoors, time well spent! Oh, and don’t forget your camera!

Tuesdays are for Toms

Thought I’d share a few of my better photos of this past Tuesday’s spring shotgun wild turkey season hunt with you. One of the many reasons I love spring wild turkey hunting in Nebraska is calling in and watching a big, old tom like this one. The words of Ben Franklin ring true when I am observing wild turkeys. For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad …

Come on, Disconnect for a Day!

What would it be like to go without ultra-modern technology? What if you had to give up your mobile communicating device (cell phone), iPad, iPod, laptop computer, digital cable television, satellite car radio, etc. for 24 hours. That would mean no texting, no Tweeting, no Facebook, no Snapchat, no Facetime, no IM-ing, none of that stuff! Could you do it?  Is it even remotely possible? I know, I know. Call me what you want. I’m an old fart, an “old schooler,” a soon-to-be grandpa. But, come on, face …
