Sitka has introduced two new pants for their waterfowl line. The Boreal Bib Pant (pictured) completes the company’s warmest waterfowl system. Working with the Boreal jacket, as well as Sitka’s other layers of high-tech clothing, the bib pants feature Gore-Tex and welded, watertight zippers to lock out the ever-present elements associated with waterfowling (you know, namely frigid water).

Getting your trusty ATV ready for storage after a great season of hunting requires a little more forethought than you may realize. One thing many people will neglect every year is the battery that spins life into your ride.
Batteries come in many shapes, sizes, types and brands. With technology advancing as it has, you will find one on every machine. Most of the newer ATVs will have sealed maintenance-free batteries, which simply means they do not have to be topped off with fluids of any kind. These batteries Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries will still need to be charged though. Here are a few things to consider in order to protect that expensive battery when storing your machine for extended periods.
Most readers of outdoor writing know a good deal about Ernest Hemingway. But for those of us who want to find out the details — like for example what Mary Hemingway's favorite hamburger recipe was — there's good news coming from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.
More than 2,500 documents collected from Hemingway's farm outside of Havana have been newly digitized and made available at the museum, according to a story yesterday by The New York Times.
What makes the collection all the more interesting is that Hemingway seemed to be a hoarder, saving everything from Christmas cards to tickets to bullfights to the Cuban gun permit pictured above.
The unintended consequences of bad law can foster some amusing ironies, especially when they ensnare one of its most vocal advocates. Such is the case in Buffalo where a prominent gun control crusader who publicly lobbied for New York's draconian SAFE Act was arrested Feb. 6 on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, including having a loaded weapon on school grounds.
When an anonymous call to the school office reported a man with a gun on school grounds, police -- including 20 officers, a SWAT team, K-9 patrols and helicopters -- locked down Harvey Austin Elementary School for several hours to conduct an exhaustive, expensive search that resulted in the arrest of Dwayne Ferguson, 52, who mentored students in an after-school program on campus.
Buffalo Police Department Spokesman Mike DeGeorge said Ferguson was in possession of a handgun inside the school. Although Ferguson has a permit to carry, New York's SAFE Act makes it a felony -- elevated from a misdemeanor -- for anyone under any circumstances to carry a firearm onto school grounds other than a law enforcement officer on duty.
If you’re familiar with the practices of maple sugaring, then it’s an easy transition to the sycamore tree as a sap source. The act of collecting sap for drinking water and syrup dates back centuries, and it is still a valid way to get some calories and clean water, whether you’re in survival mode or tapping your backyard trees for fun.
The native range of the American sycamore tree covers much of the eastern U.S., although you can purchase seedlings from tree growers and plant them virtually anywhere in the lower 48. Sycamores can be found growing wild in all states east of the Great Plains, except for Minnesota. Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) is very easy to spot in winter, even at a distance.
A spearfisherman was killed by a great white shark over the weekend off the Australian coast as his friends watched on in horror.
Sam Kellet, 28, was spearfishing with friends off Goldsmith Beach when the attack occurred, the Daily Mail reports. Eyewitnesses say they saw the victim thrashing violently in the water just after the shark approached him. It is unclear if the victim's body has been recovered.
Kiwi angler Kevin Baker caught the potential IGFA All-Tackle record Pacific bluefin tuna in the last hours of his fishing trip.
Baker was fishing aboard the Cova Rose off the coast of Greymouth, New Zealand on Sept. 14, 2013 when he dropped a fresh hoki and hooked into something big. Very big.
Baker's multiple day trip was coming to an end when he hooked up with the fish. So Baker was forced to battle the fish as quickly as he could. At one point during the 30-minute fight, Baker even cranked the drag on his Shimano 130W up to 80 pounds in an effort to land the monster.
A South African kayak angler successfully landed and dehooked a sailfish using his hat as an improvised fish glove.
Jasper Pons was fishing for queen mackerel off the coast of Westbrook when a sailfish grabbed one of his baits, GrindTV reports. This alone would have made for a sporty situation, but when a second sail decided to crash the party, life took a turn for the interesting.
