Hunter’s Corner: Youth is served as 11-year-old takes trophy buck

Saturday, November 15, 2014

The New Hampshire Youth Deer Hunt Weekend is history and 367 deer were taken. This represents a 24-percent reduction from the 2013 total of 483 deer. But this also is slightly above average when compared to the average total from the 1999 beginning of this program. Megan and Brent Rheinhardt and their two sons Wyatt, 11, and Myles, 10, are …

Hunter’s Corner: Deer the winners this archery season

Sunday, November 2, 2014

This year’s archery deer season take is 22 percent lower than last year, according to initial reports. My view of the decline is due to weather and an abundance of acorns. In order of sweetness, scrub oak and white oak lead the way with red oak acorns being the least desirable as they …

Hunters Corner: April brings new wildlife movement

Hunters Corner: Culling crows and other tidbits

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I suffered a senior moment in last week’s column when I wrote about the dates of the March crow season. The actual March crow season runs March 16-31. My apologies to the crows (not really). Crows are incredible …

Hunter’s Corner: With spring comes talk of deer and moose

Saturday, March 2, 2013

March 3 already and I am totally psyched. Next Sunday will be the first day of daylight-saving time. The first day of spring is 17 days away. March 1 began a 15-day crow season. March and April are …

Hunter’s Corner: Trail cams let hunters track their deer

Sunday, February 24, 2013

One of the tools deer hunters are currently using before, during and after the hunt is the trail camera. The key to a better trail camera is in the number of mega-pixels it has. From what I have …

Hunter’s Corner: Derby changes for the better

Sunday, February 17, 2013

The Great Meredith Rotary Fishing Derby under the new format is a fading memory for most. As for me, I got weathered out. My game plan was to fish with longtime fishing and hunting buddy Bill on Saturday, …

Hunter’s Corner: Getting wild at Barry Conservation Camp

Hunter’s Corner: Bait’s the easy part, landing a fish not so much

Saturday, February 2, 2013

Last Sunday was a great day for ice fishing. Getting bait was a simple task. Go west on Clinton Street and just after the I-89 underpass take a left at the blinking light and take your next left. …

Hunter’s Corner: Plenty of changes in ice fishing

Sunday, January 27, 2013

If you missed Dave Genz’s ice fishing seminar, you missed a beauty. Genz hails from Minnesota, Land of a Thousand Lakes, and until recently had a limit of one line per angler. It was recently changed to two. …

Hunter’s Corner: A return to winter and a hunt for shed antlers

Sunday, January 20, 2013

We interrupt the unscheduled January thaw to return you to winter. From a home heating oil consumption perspective, the thaw was fabulous. From a recreational standpoint, it was a disaster. The consumptive and non-consumptive recreational opportunities play a …

Hunter’s Corner: Safety tips for ice fishing

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Is there a connection between carpentry rules and ice fishing rules? There is in my way of thinking. The first rule of carpentry is to measure twice and cut once. The first rule of ice fishing is to …
