  • A Monster Buck Story0

  • Lycoming Hoops0

    Daylight savings is always an adjustment. And after two weeks, I am still struggling. It gets dark at 4:30. No more golf. Forget fishing. Can’t even mow grass. Depressing. Thankfully, the basketball season is now upon us. My favorite sport will help fill the void. I no longer coach, but I love to sit in

    In last week’s column, we looked at the success of several dedicated bear hunters from the Harrisburg area, but as we all know, their success rate hardly represents what most Pennsylvania bear hunters experience.

  • The Roving Sportsman… Venison Recipes0

    Election Day is just around the corner, Tuesday, November 7th. In the past, the emphasis was simply getting the voting citizenry to get to the polls.

More than 42,000 came early and loud to the South Philly Bank, credit and debit cards in hand, anxious to make a lifetime memory deposit of their beloved Phillies in what seemed sure to be a second consecutive trip to the World Series. But in the end, they were snake-bit. As
