Hunting Tip – cut a piece of nylon string (10-12 inches long), double it, stick the loop through the eye in the zipper tab on your hunting coat, put the two ends through the loop, and pull tight. Now you have a handy waterproof piece of string at your fingertips to tie your Temporary Transportation tag to your deer (or turkey). It saves fumbling around in your pockets for something to tie your tag with or cutting off a piece of your bootlace. In fact I find that it even beats fumbling with...

Ahhhh, Fall, time for festivities, food, and hunting. The leaves are changing colors and there's a bit of frost in the air. It's sweatshirt weather and my favorite time of the year. Deer (bow) season is in and it's time to sight-in our muzzleloaders, hand guns, and slug guns for the up coming deer seasons. Oh and let's not forget to sight in those crossbows which are now legal to hunt with in Indiana. Check our hunting laws before going into the woods; some changes have been made. You may...

THE OUTDOOR CODE

As an American, I will do my best to:

*Be clean in my outdoor manners. I will treat the outdoors as a heritage. I will take care of it for myself and others. I will keep my trash and garbage...

True Blues by Kenton Neuhouser

 

Two outstanding plants are in flower now with a bright blue blossom. I know many gardeners are skeptical when they hear the word "blue" used in the garden center. Blue is an extremely uncommon color in nature, but very sought after – possible due in part to the cool relaxing feeling the color creates. Many flowers described as blue turn out to be much closer to a purple shade (some Delphinium and Iris varieties aside). Customers are also sometimes disappointed...

Someone asked me about the name of this column. I started out calling it THE GREAT OUTDOORS but somehow that didn't sound personal enough for Waynedale. This column should be a place to read about what is happening just in the Waynedale area and nowhere else. We do have a vast area called Waynedale and here you can find places to hunt, fish, picnic, camp, canoe, hike, and discover what nature has provided for us to enjoy.
