Determination, Flip Flops and a Muzzleloader

Don't Tell Dad...Yet
-- Each fall my dad Art League takes a hunting trip somewhere in the Midwest or Texas. I’ve been to Kansas with him twice, but the years I haven’t gone, I’ve been very successful back here in North Carolina. In fact, on Dad’s first Kansas trip fou...

Beef or Venison Tips

Roarin' Closes the Deal
Robert Eccles had the presence of mind to set his clock back an hour on Halloween night in 2009, but he didn't make the daylight-saving-to-standard-time adjustment with his alarm, which was still set for 6 a.m. It should've been set for 5:00. Al...

Off of the Sidelines
-- I readily admit, I grew up in a non-hunting family and had always considered myself an animal lover. I would've never considered trying hunting until I met my future husband, outdoor writer Mike Lambeth. Mike is an avid bowhunter, and I enjoyed...

Her Birthday, His Buck
Nothing is more sacred than a wife's birthday. But for Kevin Wort of Rushville, Ill., dinner reservations do not have to interfere with a morning date in the deer woods. His wife must've known that early on in their relationship, too, because Kevi...
