Hunting options abound this month in NCW

Waterfowl hunting action can really start to heat up in the Columbia Basin in November if temperatures drop and bring migrant ducks and geese from the north. Expect large numbers of mallards, wigeon, gadwalls, teal, scaup, redheads and canvasbacks.

Hunt provides memories to make up for empty freezer

Yellow larch needles litter the laundry room floor where I dropped my hunting clothes Sunday night. After devoting 10 days to the pursuit of elk meat for our freezer, I’m reluctant to sweep up the mess. It’s all I have to show for the effort.

Eastmont seniors set for final football game

There’s a special mystique to high school football in America, whether it be the tradition of playing in front of the home town, soaking in the glare of those vaunted Friday night lights or the nearly-pungent camaraderie between maturing young men learning about the teamwork seen on the field.
