I blogged about the angry bison in Yellowstone last week and this morning, very early this morning, an angry bear rampaged through a remote campsite near the northeast corner of Yellowstone.
Checking trail cameras is like rushing down the stairs to check what Santa left under the Christmas tree. It's hard to hold back the enthusiasm and fortunately for me, miles and miles of remote country prohibit me from checking the cameras more than once a month.
I just watched an interesting news segment featuring tourists filming a bison in Yellowstone National Park. Yes, there was stupidity involved. Yes, someone got run over. Yes, it’s definitely tourist season.
I am not the best when it comes to working a GPS or most electronic devices. There are just too many hidden codes and cues that are only accessible by the correct use of the four or five buttons supplied. Punch the wrong series of buttons and before you know it I've reset the entire contraption and signaled the space shuttle to return to earth via the gravel road in front of my house.
I just read another survey on how hunters are feeling the pressure of being squeezed out of more and more private land. The trend is toward property owners closing the gate and nailing up "No Trespassing" signs. That means if you want to hunt you need to either score with another landowner or look toward public land.
It's hard to find a movie or primetime TV star these days that actually has something in common with hunters. You know, common guys like you and I. There is one refreshing, veteran actor out there that doesn't hide his respect and protection for the Second Amendment: Tom Selleck.
Hunters are a contentious bunch. They love to debate, argue and downright fight over the best gear and tactics. A favorite topic that comes up time and time again is the debate over the "best whitetail caliber."
It was a father daughter weekend. Cole and Sharon traveled late in the week for Cole to participate in the state 4-H shooting sports competition leaving Katelyn and I to fend for ourselves.
You commented on the recent Second Amendment Supreme Court case regarding firearm rights in Chicago. I also suspect you have opinions on the debate of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.
Weird and wacky weather patterns are nothing new to hunters and if you've been following the national forecast the past few days you probably noticed some wide swings in temperature extremes.
