Mettle to the pedal

About 40 mountain bikers took advantage of Rider Appreciation Weekend Oct. 3-4 at Oak Mountain in Speculator, riding the chairlift up and their bicycles down the mountain. The free day of fun was Oak's way of thanking mountain bikers for their patronage. A lot of them came from Syracuse, Rochester and Albany, Oak Manager Matt O'Brien said, and some camped out overnight. The high point of the day -- no pun intended -- was a race at noon.

By Dick Nelson

New York’s regular big game hunting season opened across the Southern Tier Nov. 21, and unless you filled your buck tag last weekend the odds of bagging one of the antlered wonders before the end of the season (Dec. 13) has been reduced by 25 percent.
Regardless of weather conditions, opening day accounts for almost a quarter of the annual harvest, with most killed by hunters lying in wait. But while sitting on a stand -- or on “post” as it is also known -- is by far the most p ...
