Six weeks after having surgery on my wrist I’ve finally been released from “stall rest” and thoroughly enjoyed a four-mile hack through the fall foliage.

This fall has been busy, with no time yet to hunt. However, Zelda and I did manage to go out for a nice hack with our hunting friends this week. It was an overcast day, but warm. And the fall foliage still glowed. We met at one of our local state parks — which is […]

Yesterday was one of those days where things go wrong. The kind of day where you upgrade the operating system on your computer and it wipes your hard drive. The kind of day where you go run errands and realize you left your wallet at home. The kind of day where you wonder why you […]
