The sporting clays facility at Dorchester Shooting Preserve in Midway, Georgia is tournament caliber. They’ve carefully built the course station by station to make great use of the vegetation and terrain. With the controlled burning of the undergrowth underway while we were there and the lands...
No, I’m not promoting some sort of cruelty. In fact, the statement there should be no off-season for dogs is made with the greatest benefit to the dog in mind.
What made me think of this was the great report I got from Jerry Sather on Sunday afternoon! Jerry’s the owner of Labs Unlimited Kennel a...
Whether we admit it or not, most hunters are kids at heart. So it wasn’t surprising last week when I stood on the diving platform above the clear, blue lake at Lone Hollow Camp near Vanderpool, Texas it was everything I could do to keep myself from leaping into the cool water below! Of course, the f...
When you’re taping a hunting television show sometimes things go all wrong … until they go all right! That was the case last week on Lone Hollow Ranch near Vanderpool, Texas out in the western Hill Country. I was chasing Rio Grande turkeys with freelance producer Tyge Floyd at the invitation o...

So it’s a bit surprising to be blogging about a couple of good ...
You may have guessed science fiction isn’t my preferred literary genre. Fact is you can count on one hand the number of sci-fi novels or short stories I’ve read in my lifetime.
I’ve written before about what a wonderful wife I have. We’ve been married for nearly 27 years and every one better than...
