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 …

Earth Day? 2015

Earlier this week I stopped at a stop-light and watched the pig in the car in front of me squash out his cigarette and …

Window to Nature

I’ve been in the field a lot archery/crossbow spring wild turkey hunting with my buddy, Jim Druliner, a.k.a. Jimmy D., from a portable, camouflaged, pop-up blind in rural eastern Nebraska.

Here are just some of the various wildlife species we’ve seen. Take a look with us through the lens. Before I began this blog, I was going to list all the reasons why I …

Spring Break: Sporting Clays, Pheasants, Chukars, Fun and Memories

To get young people ‘outdoors’ these days, you have to be flexible and take advantage of any windows of opportunity that are there. Such was the case this past week when my 17 year-old Son Noah, a junior at Omaha’s Creighton Prep High School, had spring break. Noah had been bugging me to take him hunting in some fashion over his break from school. As adult sportsmen and women we all need to make time in our own busy schedules to take kids to the …

Hunting with the Right Folks

We didn’t get a lot of geese, but if there was a limit on laughter we’d be way over the max. — Mark Davis, Outdoor Writer and Photojournalist for the Omaha World-Herald, reflecting on a recent Canada goose hunt.  The camaraderie part of hunting is big. Your companions can make or break a hunt. The choices you make in whom you share a blind with will ultimately determine your level of satisfaction. Trust me, it only takes one jerk to ruin a hunting trip. I’ve …
