High Point Builders raise funds for veterans

My Mama had a conviction, and she lived her life by it. The evidence of that conviction wasn’t stated verbally, it was lived. Mama’s theory was that doing something for someone else gives you more gratification than doing something for yourself.

Canine containment that can stand the test of time

My Mustang Convertible was built in 1987. My RD 350 motorcycle is a 1974 model. I hunt with a Fox shotgun made in 1912 and it kills birds as well as it did in 1912.

Lady Luck is the Queen of Camp Perry

I checked the scope one more time as the line official announced our time would begin when the targets appeared.

Lost? Not me

I remember scouting for deer in the mountains of Montgomery County with my friend, Joe Clodfelter about thirty years ago.

Boondocking at the Boone Lake docks for big stripers

The tip of the rod dipped down, almost into the water from the strike. Like the previous fish, this was a good one.

You don’t have to catch fish to have fun

The temperature was just below 70. The banks were lined in lush green vegetation and, in spite of all the recent rain we’ve had, the water in Oak Hollow Lake was remarkably clear.
