Results are in from the 2011 big-game season
by Ron Kolodziej

According to figures released recently by the Department of Environmental Conservation, hunters in New York State harvested 228,350 deer and 1,258 bruins last season. The 2011 deer take varied less than one percent from the 2010 take statewide and outside the Adirondack region the bear harvest last season set new records, substantially exceeding previous record takes in central and western New York. In contrast, the bear take here in the Adirondack region dropped to a level not seen since 1998.

Spring has sprung... or has it?
By Dick Nelson

It seems Old Man Winter doesn't want to let go though, as daytime temperatures struggle to get above freezing. But sooner or later he's going to release that icy grip and when that happens, trout fishermen will be out and about and turkey hunters will be scouring fields and forest searching for signs of the big-chested birds.
Of course, given the thickness of lake ice, the turkey seas ...

By Dick Nelson

You have to hand it to the Irish; they really know how to throw a party. Although I have to admit, it's been quite a few years since I woke up with leprechauns still dancing around in my head. And, to be perfectly honest, I don't miss them at all. That's not to say I no longer indulge. I do enjoy a pint of Murphy's Irish Red from time to time, but I am at the point where a wee bit means just that.
The same thing applies to fishing. That's why the DEC has revised its statewide freshwater fishing ...
