Tips on the best fall trout food

While some folks think that fishing for trout is best in the spring, I am of the opinion that the best time to go fishing is whenever you can.

Art of teaching beginners to shoot

Over lunch the other day, some friends amd I were discussing the best way to teach a beginner to shoot. We found ourselves in unanimous agreement that the best firearm to learn to shoot with is the 22 caliber single shot rifle with traditional iron sights.

Hunting’s opening day in Sierra set for Sept. 28

Not long ago I heard a story about a school teacher in Montana who asked students on a quiz to name the four seasons. The most common answer she got was Trout Season, Deer Season, Elk Season, and Duck Season. That's sort of the way my mind works too. Opening Day of both deer season and bear season for the Sierra Nevada Mountains is Saturday, Sept. 28. Deer season runs six weeks until Nov. 3, while bear season lasts until Dec. 29.
