Right now, if it’s fowl it’s fair game for hunters by Dick Nelson

Now that the waterfowl hunting season for ducks, snow geese and brant has opened across the Southeastern Zone, pheasant, grouse, turkey and woodcock aren't the only feathered species ducking for cover. Just about everything that has wings and is classified as "wild game" is on a hunter's hit list and that includes the lowly common crow. But for actual dining purposes, if I had to choose one species over the other the ruffed grouse would win, wings down. As far as I'm concerned, the grouse is the ...

Saturday is National Hunting & Fishing Day by Dick Nelson

It only happens once a year, but ever since 1972, when President Richard Nixon signed the first proclamation declaring the fourth Saturday of September as National Hunting and Fishing Day, hunters and fishermen have had reason to celebrate. This year annual celebration is set for Saturday, Sept. 27, and while I know I’m talking to the choir, long before it became fashionable, and agencies and organizations such as the EPA and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals were non-existent an ...

GSLFF holds final contest of the year by Dick Nelson

Forget the long Labor Day holiday weekend and the fact the first full day of autumn is Sept. 23 — the “reel” harbinger of fall’s arrival is the Great Sacandaga Lake Fisheries Federation.  The 250-member fishing group held its final contest of the season last Saturday (Sept. 7) out of Sport Island Pub in Sacandaga Park and while attendance was down from previous years – 95 compared to 127 – it had no reflection on the contest and the effort the GSLFF commi ...

There is no need to remind people such as Mike Auriemma and Dick Andrews of the Mohawk Valley Sharp Spurs Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation about the importance of introducing youngsters to the hunting tradition because they've been involved for years. Tom Georgia of the Montgomery County Republican Club or Canajoharie Forest Fish and Game Club secretary/treasurer Pam Hayes are two others.

Time to remove exotic animals

After years of doing battle with the town of Mayfield in New York State courts, and losing every step of the way, it’s time for the town to enforce its cease and desist order against exotic animal business owner Steve Salton. Mr. Salton has kept at least three full-grown tigers and two leopards in a back yard enclosure in an R-1 residential district for several years and charged money to exhibit them. In June 2011, Mayfield town code enforcement officer Michael Stewart notified Salton that ...

Talk to your kids about gambling To the editor: Before you read this article it is only fair to state that we are neither for nor against gambling. Gambling can be a fun activity for adults, when done responsibly. We are writing this letter because we are concerned with youth and “problem gambling” and feel we have information for parents that can be helpful. It’s important to first understand what gambling is. Webster’s Dictionary defines gambling as, “to stake or ...

Our opinion

It’s well past time to let the cat out of the bag. Or, in the seemingly never-ending case of the exotic animals in Mayfield, it’s time for their owner to wave the white flag and move on. As has been documented on numerous occasions in the past three years, Mayfield resident Steven Salton keeps three tigers and two leopards at his Route 30 home. He has fought — tooth and nail — a pack of neighborhood complaints and a litter of legal challenges, all in an attempt to keep th ...
