    Black Bear Attack!-8

    by

     

    Timothy Scott was attacked by a bear while on a hiking trip Sunday, marking the first recorded black bear attack ever in Kentucky history, according to the Associated Press.

    Scott, 56, was hiking ahead of his wife and son in the Daniel Boone National Forest when he spotted a 150-pound black bear. The bear was about 25 feet away, and Scott took a few photos with his cell phone before it disappeared beneath a rock ledge.

    Zero Tolerance Hat Trick-15

    by

    In recent years, there have been many examples of zero-tolerance firearms policies run amok in public schools and universities that, in the most literal sense, exhibit intolerance to reason and good judgment.

    Finally, here’s a zero-tolerance tale with a happy ending!

    When second grader David Morales came to class at Tiogue School in Coventry, RI wearing a camouflage cap with a small American flag attached along with several green plastic toy Army figures holding tiny guns, he was told it was a violation of the school’s no-weapons policy. Contacted by David’s teacher about the incident, mom Christan Morales explained that her son was simply trying to honor American troops in his own personal way.

    I Hate My Editor and I am Not Gay-12

    by

    Writing a book is difficult.

    It takes time, a great deal of research, and a lot of planning.  Even after the first draft is written there’s a ton of work to be done.  Depending upon the publisher, the book can go through upwards of five or six edits.  Following that the book goes to a graphic designer who places the pictures, sets the text, and basically decides what the end product will look like. The entire process can take several months if not years.  So it was with complete shock that upon receiving my latest book Texas Safari: The Fishing Guide to Texas (blatant plug) that I discovered one major grammatical problem: the word “each” was omitted.

    Are Ducks Doomed?-7

    by

     

    I’m not exactly sure why the thought didn’t occur to me until I sat down with D.U.’s Mike Checkett last week in Buras, Louisiana, but what about the ducks? 

    “This is America’s marsh,” Checkett’s explained, while pondering the fate of the entire Mississippi Flyway.

    Wisconsin Radar Goes Buggy-1

    by

    But how about the Memorial Day mayfly hatch on the upper Mississippi River?

    Haven’t heard of it?

    Well, the mayflies were so thick along the Mississippi in portions of Wisconsin on Saturday, May 29, that their swarms looked like a summer thunderstorm on National Weather Service radar.
