Deer management proponents rack up points by Dick Nelson

If I had to use one word to describe the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) it would be “persistent.” Persistent in its goal to not only bringing their idealistic views of not shooting yearling bucks to every state that has a white-tailed deer population, but raising that idealistic standard to where hunters in 22 states can’t harvest a four-point buck should it step into his or her sights. What started out as a way for landowners and hunters to maintain a healthy herd ...

Good time to catch some walleye on Sacandaga by Dick Nelson

Generally speaking, kayakers and canoeists generally don't interfere with fishing, but the people who run around on personal watercrafts often do, and many times its done intentionally. But that's another story. If you're serious about catching fish on a summer weekend then you would do better fishing the early morning and late evening hours. Most species feed at that time and boat traffic will be at a minimum. However, if you're just out there passing time, it doesn't matter what time of the da ...
