Back on March 28, 2009, Kemba Walker came into Connecticut's West Regional final against the Missouri Tigers and dropped 23 points, leading his Huskies to a thrilling 82-75 win and ushering the Huskies into that season's Final Four.
Just when you think you have the weather figured out, everything changes. As much as I keep reminding myself year after year to not get to excited, it never fails; we get hit with another big storm. Leading up to this current storm we had the perfect water temperatures, and the perfect moon cycle for the first spawn of the year. As I cruised along the shallows a little over a week ago, I even ...
It was a lot like that Kenny Chesney song, only we weren't on stools, there were no shots, and the only reading we were doing was the river current through our warm breaths.
If you've never shot black powder guns before you ought to give it a try. It transports you back in time as you pour the powder down the barrel, drop the lead ball or shot in and tamp it down with a ramrod. The first time I shot a black powder gun was in 1967 in Virginia, when my cousin Lou showed me how to shoot his 58 caliber Civil War musket. You had to ...
It's been a while since I've taken my family out fishing for the day, and this past Monday seemed like the perfect time.
The winter doldrums are finally coming to an end for four-wheeled racing fans as the green flag is about to unfurl to start the 2011 local racing season.
My favorite t-shirt, designed by Ketchikan pun-master Ray Troll, is buried under a quarter-zip fleece and no-nonsense Marmot jacket, and my feet have been wet with sweat since Sacramento.
Just grabbing a bat and going up to the dish to take your hacks is a thing of the past. Now, going to the plate begins with making sure that your particular tool for the trade is approved by the newly-appointed Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution standards. The BBCOR standards reflect how fast a ball can come off a bat, and the approved list was supplied by the University of Massachusetts and accepted as the ...
I read the other day where the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has officially declared the Eastern Mountain Lion as extinct. Because they have been officially de-listed, Mountain Lions in the entire eastern seaboard are now regulated by the individual states.
As the weather has been improving, I'm sure a lot of anglers looking forward to going fishing.
Over the years, I have always been interested in going to Canada on a black bear hunt, so in February when the outdoor show came to Great Falls, Mont., I decided it was time to find out if I was going to stay on the bank and cut bait or grab a rod and join the big dogs.
One of the best items an outdoor enthusiast can carry is one or more of the guidebooks on flowers, trees, rocks birds, or mammals that inhabit your area. I often carry one of the handy field guides in my fishing vest, or backpack. Perhaps the most dog-eared of my field guides in the one on California wildflowers.
Kevin Van Dam won his fourth career Bassmaster Classic, which was held on the Louisiana Delta.
Most of the time, you don't really wonder how you got to a certain place in time. If you do contemplate "What just happened?" it's usually confined to a small increment of life.
Congratulations to Kevin VanDam for winning his fourth Bassmaster Classic this past weekend held on the Louisiana Delta.
When working out an itinerary for mom's retirement trip to Fairbanks and surrounding areas, I had to fit in a float on the Chena River for Arctic grayling. Naturally, a very late ice break up and torrential rains had the Chena swollen to the point the guide called to say the float was in serious jeopardy. I had never fished the area I had no clue what I'd do if the float didn't happen. If the Chena was blown out, then everything else might be unfishable too.
Five years ago I purchased a 75-gallon fish tank from someone selling it on Craigslist.
Editor's note: Only a portion of Lund's column ran in Wednesday's Bulletin. Here it is in its entirety.
In January, the outdoor itinerary for summer is so ambitious - a schedule of old haunts with dreams of adventures in new spots. But when fall comes, what you didn't get to sometimes outnumbers what you did.
The weather has been uncharacteristic for the month of May - lots of wind and cooler temperatures for this time of year.
I know it's summer and I should sleep in, but when you're solar-powered and the sun floods into your room your body doesn't care if it's 4:18.
There are many ways to catch a fish. Yesterday while doing some grocery shopping I ran into my high school physical education teacher, coach Gebhart. He reminded me of a way of catching fish that I've never really gotten into. Coach Gebhart likes to fly fish just as much as he likes to golf. I have a fly rod, which is 27 years old and has sat collecting dust for the past 20 years. I ...
