Last weekend hunt for goose a bangup activity

My phone buzzed last week with an invitation from Chris Jabs of Jabs Construction, offering me a spot on a field goose hunt in the James River Population Zone west of here. Jabs and I have often hunted together and we have also fished together. Jabs had booked a trip with Teddy Carr of Outdoor Action. You might recognize the name.

Last chance on deer for the area

This weekend is the last chance deer hunters roaming our local woods will get for putting up any venison. If data holds true from just before Christmas, our harvest figures are going to look like the stock market when it took a dive several years ago. However, as much as we like to put meat up for the coming months, it is rarely about the numbers of deer
