’Tis the season for reflecting on the past year and making resolutions for the next. Despite the pandemic and the chaos it brought, I was still able to enjoy the outdoors and cross a few things off my bucket list. Taking my first deer and re

The pandemic shook things up for deer hunters this year. Unit tags sold out quickly and my husband, Led, and I ended up purchasing a last-minute statewide buck tag for him and a river antlerless tag for myself.

“Hold her feet, she’s going in,” hollered the stranger just down the bank. The wind was biting as my hands gripped the rod and reel. My feet shifted on the rocks inching toward the water, but still I held on. I stood my ground, bound and determined to land my first paddlefish.

One of the positives to hunting and fishing is ending up with a freezer stocked with meat. At the end of a successful year, we may have 100 pounds of fish fillets, deer roasts and pheasant breasts. So how do you create delicious meals with wild game?

Although I wasn’t exactly born in the outdoors, my history with it goes way back. Growing up, my parents didn’t travel much. In fact, the last family vacation we took was when I was a year old.

There’s a saying my grandma used to have. “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.” Never were those words more true than after a difficult deer season.

There are many experiences that help introduce a person to the great outdoors. I’ve gone on a number of hunting excursions with my husband, Led, over the years — some were a success, but others didn’t go as planned. However, being out in the wide open spaces is still good for the soul. Even …

Getting involved in the outdoors as an adult is much different from when you’ve grown up with it. I feel that there is so much to learn in a short amount of time to prepare for rifle season.

I haven’t always been interested in the great outdoors. Growing up with three older brothers, I was introduced to fishing poles and guns at a young age but was never fully immersed in the sports. After they left for college, the desire to be out in the woods faded until I met my husband.
