AFTERNOON IN THE ABYSS FOR THE MIGHTY CANADA

Spent an afternoon in the abyss of dense fog near the confluence of the Elkhorn and Platte Rivers yesterday in search of the mighty Canada goose.

And here is my list: 1)      to find myself lost at the Valentine NWR this spring, wading through cattails in search of bass and pike for at least one day with a pile of friends within shouting distance. 2)      to squirrel hunt with my Ruger 10-22. Several years …
