Mayweather still making fans pay

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. didn't exactly plan for it to happen this way. The thought of sitting in a jail cell for two months can't be a pleasant one, especially while the entourage enjoys life without him at the Big Boy house.

Fuel prices & the outdoor experience

I recall as a boy that our family would save for our summer vacations in the mountains by saving silver dollars all year. Whenever a silver dollar or "Cartwheel" would show up in the cash register of Dad's store, he would take a one dollar bill out of his wallet and replace the coin with it. The accumulated cartwheels would go into a canvas money bag saved for use on vacation. We would regularly fill up the tank on our jeep for three or four dollars!

New chassis breeds excitement for IndyCar races

Is it the better fisherman or the better equipment?

Several years ago when the swim bait started to become real popular, I wrote about the baits becoming better than the anglers. As technology has far surpassed what I could ever imagine, I've been amazed at how it's changed the way anglers have fished. It seems like every year there's a new bait, technique, or piece of equipment that makes me wonder if catching more or bigger fish is now determined by who has the better equipment, instead of who's the better angler.

Putting your trust in H2O

Russell Chatham wrote, "Fishing at its most rudimentary level is essentially solitary. Not only that, but its components, outside the particular baggage one brings to it, are entirely trustworthy. I mean, what creek ever teased you about your pimples; what breeze ever ridiculed you in front of your friends?"

Mickelson gives away a green jacket

Hunting with hounds

The older I get, the faster that time seems to fly. It seems like only yesterday that I was chasing my first bear in the woods near Hoopa. It's hard to believe that it's now been over 35 years ago. Last fall my son Donald and I were once again out in the woods running after bears. Without a doubt the best way to catch a bear is to use trained hounds. While it may sound like it's a simple matter to just shoot a bear once the hounds have treed him, nothing could be farther from ...
