Unfortunately, it’s the time of year when many hunters start hanging up their gear for the season. Maybe they have already harvested game or are tired of trying to do so.

Hunters: Do You Know the Pheasant’s Itinerary?

Ring-necked pheasants are really a lot like us humans. They live their lives on a fairly predictable, routine basis.

Dabbling with Dove Decoys

This blog was originally posted on August 31, 2009 but it has been updated with new information.  I like to dabble with dove decoys. That’s really all I do, it seems.
