Guzzlers & trout houses

Several times I have encouraged folks to donate money to conservation organizations that assist the wild critters we all love. It's good advice for those who can afford it, but what can you do if money is tight? It seems as though this recession has affected all of us to some extent. Unfortunately the recession has also affected charitable groups as well. At a time when the need is greatest non-profits are also hit with reduced contributions.

Folks on the other side of the equation ask the rhetorical question: "If you're not doing anything wrong, what do you have to worry about?" The fact is private information in the hands of others can harm you. Here's an example.

Danger as woods go to pot

A couple days ago I was chatting with my friend Bob Busser about a growing danger to those of us who frequent wild places. Appearantly growing demand for marijuna has resulted in a number of illegal pot groves located on remote public lands. Some pot growers are now planting their crops on hard to reach sites on BLM, Forest Service, or even private timberlands. They'll clear a space, till the soil, and even pipe water in from a nearby creek. If they should get busted, all they lose is the crop. Usually there is a grower/guard nearby to ...

Fishing can be a relaxing getaway

Ten years ago, I was listening to a local Bass Pro talk about today's kids and their overall lack of interest toward the outdoors. He went on to talk about computer games and how few children are actually able to get out of the house anymore.
