Digital NEBRASKAland December 2013

I want to give another “shout out” to our NEBRASKAland magazine being available in a digital form, on-line, now.  Make sure to check out the December issue.  Of course you know I am going to mention the fish and fishing subjects you can find in that issue, especially Jeff Kurrus’ article on ice-fishing for crappies on pages 30 and 31. There is also a good story in there on predator calling, and I think it is a real treat to …

Digital NEBRASKAland, November 2013

I mentioned last month that for the first time NEBRASKAland magazine was available in a digital format, “Check out the Digital NEBRASKAland”.  The November issue is now available digitally, NEBRASKAland, November 2013.

Fine Day Yesterday on the Corne de Cerf

With yet another cold, wet weather pattern upon us here in the Heartland, I thought I’d share with you what a fine day it was yesterday on the river French Fur Trappers called Corne de Cerf, French for the horn of the elk, because of its meandering nature and tributaries. It was a nice spring day indeed to be on the Elkhorn! My buddy and I weren’t the only living, breathing things on the river this last Tuesday afternoon in April …
