This week is National Safe Boating Week and — as in past years — the emphasis is on the importance of wearing a personal flotation device whenever you're on the water. Commonly referred to as a life jacket, boaters — and I'm including fishermen and hunters in that group -- come up with a multitude of excuses for not wearing a PFD.

Spring turkey hunters hitting the trails by Dick Nelson

The much anticipated spring turkey hunting season opened 30 minutes before sunrise May 1, and if it was anything like previous years, hundreds of hunters filled their first tag at about the time most people were getting out of bed. If they didn't, they have until May 31 to do so. Hunting hours for these big chested birds ends at noon, but a common mistake many hunters make is to give up too soon.

Earth Day should be an everyday event by Dick Nelson

Celebrating Earth Day with pomp and circumstance is akin to solemnizing the ancient Babylonians for inventing soap. It's something we should be thankful for 365 days a year — unless of course you only bathed on Saturday night. But America's awareness on environmental issues has come a long way since the late U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson (D-Wisconsin), introduced legislation that would later proclaim April 22nd as Earth Day. In case you missed some of the fanfare, April 22 marked the 45th An ...
