  By Robin Follette A lot has changed when it comes to selecting hunting clothes for women. We typically had to fit into men’s clothing. Our hourglass figures meant shirts and jackets might be tight in the chest but baggy in the waist when we put on the straight-cut clothes made for men. With our […]

  By David Link Swarming bugs, itchy bites, pesky rashes, and sore sunburns…ah the great outdoors! The places so many love aren’t always as inviting as they could be, but no matter, we still go there anyway without hesitation.

It’s a good use of time in the off season, and creating habitat doesn’t have to be expensive or too time consuming. As urban sprawl increases creating habitat for small […]
