    The diminishing daylight hours, foggy mornings and slightly different angle of the daytime sun informs hunters the best time of year is upon us.

  • Interstate excellence
  • Choices have consequences

    I have never understood why some people do not want their kids to attend public schools, but want some of the benefits those schools offer.

    In case you missed it, Rep. Stan Lee (R-Lexington) announced last week that he had pre-filed legislation for the 2015 Kentucky General Assembly that, if passed, would allow home-schooled students to play sports for their local public school district.

    Here we go again.

  • Getting Ready!
  • Choosing your first shotgun...

    My first shotgun was an old .410-gauge Mossberg with a bolt action and pistol grip that once belonged to my grandmother. A decent squirrel gun, yet working the bolt to get off three shots at incoming doves was nearly impossible for me when excited. Doves flying nearby had little to fear when I shouldered that old .410.
