Coyotes are here to stay

If you venture outdoors or talk to those who do chances are you have heard of coyotes infiltrating the area lately. In fact, they have been here for many years.

HD and acorn supply may be reason for fewer deer sightings

Last week I did a short piece on the fact that many hunters are seeing far fewer deer this season than last. Some hunters are wondering if too many deer have been harvested. Others have mused that the hemorrhagic disease (HD) outbreak was worse than we thought, and still others felt that the incredible acorn crop was to blame.
