    Grizzly Bear Protection Act

    Years back I could take a grizz once every four years and had to have a tag. Then came one bear every year, no tag required. In recent years, grizzly can now be taken over bait. Populations seem to be doing ok, in my backyard.

    The Gaslighting of the American Sportsman

    The article takes the anti side of the debate, while others are working through, the multi years long process seeking approval.

    Uncle Ted

    The lights went down and the twang of a guitar started to rise. Spotlight found Ted standing on top of stacked amplifiers, wearing knee high boots with feather fringe. Not much else. Tarzan like he swung across the stage and dropped on center. The show was on!
