  • Bass on Top0

    The various fishing seasons are all pretty much underway, and you know summer has arrived when you have to cut the grass twice a week, and you can pursue some serious bass fishing. April 13 through June 7, bass fishing is catch and release only, and from June 8 through September 30, you are allowed

  • My Bearded Friends0

    My full-time gig is with Susquehanna Marble and Granite. Yes. There is never a dull moment. I have been with the company for eight great seasons. I have been exposed to every facet of the countertop business. I am not the strongest guy, and these rocks are super heavy. I tend to break stuff, and

  • South Williamsport HOF Welcomes Eiswerth & Polk0

    Author Thomas Wolfe once wrote, ” You can’t go home again.” But as the two men sat upon the stage at South Williamsport High School, one coming from three blocks away and the other traveling 1,000 miles, coming home to where it all began was humbling for both of them. For Chris Eiswerth and Nick

  • The Roving Sportsman… It’s the Birthing Season0

    The cool spring days of rainy weather seem to evolve into warm rainy weather. The combination of warmer days, frequent showers, and occasional thunderstorms has produced taller grasses that will help hide newborn fawns from predation. The leaves in the hardwood forests are definitely more developed than in previous springs, providing great cover for newly

  • The Antlers are Coming0

    It’s that time of year again — that time when we deer hunters start studying deer more closely in search of new antler growth. It’s not just deer hunters, though, since even non-hunters seem to get excited when they spot a set of big deer antlers. I know me and a lot of others are

  • Paddling


    Last week, I told you about a friend who was on an adventure. My man, Michael Kinney, is paddling the entire West Branch of the Susquehanna. I reached out to him with a few questions. Unfortunately, Mike had no cell phone service, but he did get back to me a few days later. My article

    That’s Why it’s Called “Fishing”0

    How many times have you been around someone who said, “Yeah, we went fishing the other day, and we didn’t catch anything”? About that time, someone else will add, “Yeah, that’s why it’s called ‘fishing’ and not ‘catching.’” Well, it’s certainly true that there are times when the fishing may not be going well, but

  • An Epic Journey

    An Epic Journey0

    Hats off to a Lycoming County naturalist and photographer. Michael Kinney is on an epic adventure. My friend is currently somewhere on the water. Kinney is doing a solo float trip on the entire stretch of the West Branch of the Susquehanna. Incredible. Mike kicked things off with a social media post. He has been

  • The Roving Sportsman… Ticks!0

    The winter doldrums are finally behind us, and although this spring has been offering more wet weather than usual, for outdoorsmen who are about to spend an increasing amount of time in the out of doors in the upcoming months, it is only a matter of time until you come in contact with ticks. Whether

  • May, a Great Month for the Outdoorsman0

    I must say that the month of May is a lot like Christmas for the hunting and fishing crowd; there’s a host of opportunities to hunt and fish for a variety of species. I’ve seen some photos of successful turkey hunters, but a couple were particularly interesting. One of those photos was of Jessica and
