STRANDED IN THE FAR NORTH - 9/11 Stories You've Never Heard

Posted by on in Public Blog

Mike Scagnelli was hunting caribou in a remote part of northern Quebec on September 11th, 2001. Mike, assistant chief of New York City's police department, was enjoying a well deserved vacation. He had already taken one caribou and was stalking a second when he heard gunfire from camp. All the hunters were gone, and he assumed something was wrong.

AN OVERLOOKED, BUT IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR FIREARM

Posted by on in Public Blog

On more than one occasion, I've made a bad shot with my rifle, whether at the range or in the field. Obviously, inaccurate shots at the range are harmless, but a bad shot on the hunt could result in a missed, or worse, a crippled animal.

ONE THING YOU MUST HAVE To Be A TRULY GREAT HUNTER

Posted by on in Public Blog

It was a foggy, dreary day in northern Canada, with no promise of the fog lifting soon. I was sitting with an old Indian guide, waiting for it to clear up, hoping to see a moose in the beaver marsh shrouded by the fog. I noted that it was sunny on the slopes above us where there was decent visibility. Where we sat, we couldn't see 10 yards below us because of the fog. I wondered if it might be wise to climb higher and hunt where we could see, but I trusted the guide's wisdom.

A Sentimental New Year's Eve Message

Posted by on in Public Blog

I wanted to write something profound for a New Year's blog -- something appropriate for the old year going out and the new coming in. I could have written about the past year, but frankly, with all the terrorist activity, and demonstrations and plane crashes, I figured that wouldn't be on a positive note. And by the way, my glass is half full. I'm not a pessimist by nature. And then I thought I'd write about how great it would be for a new year that wouldn't have all the negatives, where we'd really make progress with the world's problems. Well.....maybe. Then I thought I'd write about my New Year's resolutions, which almost never are adhered to after a week or three. So, I figured it would be safe to write about happy times, back when I was a kid and I had no worries other than catching a bigger fish than my buddies, or head-shooting a squirrel out of a tall oak.

CHUCK YEAGER AND THE CHRISTMAS PRESENT

Posted by on in Public Blog

I'm no stranger to elk hunts. I began hunting elk back in my 20's, and my interest and passion for hunting them grew to the point where they became my primary focus. I hunted elk everywhere I could, during blistering hot early fall days to bitterly cold subzero days. Because I was a full-time staff writer for Outdoor Life magazine, time was not an issue. I hunted nonstop, continually taking up the challenge in different states and different mountain ranges. I couldn't hunt elk enough.
