Sam's First Whitetail Deer

It was the last hour, of the last day, of our first hunting trip to Nebraska.  It was so cold, it was hard not to shiver if you weren’t moving.  We had been crouched behind a thick cedar for about 10 minutes and the cold was really starting to sink in.  We’d heard a couple of shots from our hunting partners over the ridge and knew the deer would be coming right through the draw we were hunkered down in.  The anticipation was killing my 11 year old son.

Turkey Time!
Marty Sup

I have been a big game hunter since I was 12 years old and then about 10 years ago I got introduced into waterfowl hunting and while that was a lot of fun and really passed the slow months in the winter after elk season was over. Nothing has come close to elk hunting except for when I went turkey hunting for the first time 5 years ago. When I went turkey hunting for the first time I was a bit overwhelmed at how hard the animal is to hunt.

Nebraska Hybrid Turkey Hunt (Rio Grande / Merriams)

We did a Spring Turkey Hunt with Hunt Nebraska Inc. in the area surrounding Arapahoe, Nebraska last Spring and had an excellent experience after a horrible flight in a storm from Denver to McCook. (We won't get political, but it was Senator Ben Nelson airport after he pulled off the Cornhusker Kickback so a little upchuck may have been appropriate).

Korean Pheasant Hunt
Elisse & Dan Clark
My husband and I hunted pheasant recently (March 2008) on Jeju Island, in Korea! Dan is US Army Retired, and had told me how he had hunted there when he was stationed in Korea many years ago... back when Jeju (or Cheju as it is sometimes spelled) was basically wilderness... Jeju Island is now a vacation paradise of 5-star resorts, but there is still hunting (even for foreign tourists!) at the Daeyoo Land Hunting Preserve! I was planning our very belated "Honeymoon" in Asia, and I was determined to finally get to go hunting with my husband!
The Old Man and the Hound
Norm 'Leep' Leeper Jr.
Jack drove his old jeep down the dirt road carefully. Since no one lived along this road anymore but old Tom, the highway department seldom serviced it. He guessed it didn't really matter much as old Tom didn't drive much anymore. Perhaps once a month when his retirement check came in. Then he would come into town driving that old rickety truck and cash his check, buy some groceries and collect his mail.
