By the time you read this I will have a new blog setup on our Web site designed to allow sportsman an opportunity to exchange stories and ideas. I hope to give some insight into what is and isn't working for me at any given time and perhaps start a dialogue with others who enjoy the outdoor pursuits as much as I do.
I definitely don't profess to know it all, and would love to learn new hunting and fishing practices that have proven successful, so feel free to go to www.denpubs.com and drop me a line.
I also strongly encourage questions - from whether the ice is gone from a particular pond to where heritage strains of brookies have been stocked to the politics behind proposed state environmental policies. If I can't answer you I'll do my best to research an answer - or I'll just make it up. (Kidding, of course).
Hopefully, if I can't answer it, one of our bloggers can. As I said, I don't profess to know it all, but there is power in numbers. Combine our collective experience and we will all be better for it.
I plan to share some of our on-line banter in future columns.
I can also share an unlimited number of photographs online, so I strongly encourage you to submit your pictures by e-mail to me at email@example.com or by snail mail to 14 Hand Ave., Elizabethtown N.Y. 12932.
Speaking of great photos, Jim Hotaling from the Willsboro Fish and Game submitted a picture of the club's youth pheasant hunt that took place Sept. 26. The hunt is open to youth ages 12-15 and gives young hunters an opportunity to experience some pheasant hunting action behind experienced dogs and their handlers. Another is planned for Oct. 11. For information about the hunt, give Hotaling a call at 963-7430 or John Oliver at 963-4421.
