INDIANA’S WILD GAME COOKING VIDEOS

Details

Indiana's "CookIN Gone Wild" video series now teaches viewers not only how to prepare their wild game, but also how to harvest it.

The first episode in the new format highlights steelhead trout and coho salmon fishing on Trail Creek in Michigan City. Viewers...

OUTDOOR NOTES: A CONVOCATION OF EAGLES

Details

A telephone caller told me she and her husband had seen twelve or thirteen bald eagles below the dam on the Salamonie River one morning earlier this month. Most were perched in the trees along the river below the dam, she said, though a few were flying. And that wasn't all the eagles they saw that morning. From the dam they had driven west along the river to its confluence with the Wabash River and along the way they had seen five more eagles. Then they drove east along the Wabash for several...

BABY MOUSES - HOME COUNTRY

Details

Day started slowly, after Steve and Snort were already through two big pastures and into the birth of the hills. Sure was pretty, too, he noticed. Kinda pink and made everything glow.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF SPRING

Details

Well, totally unlike last year's spring season, this year's spring gardening is off to a very slow start. In 2012 we experienced temperatures in the middle to high 80s in March, repeated again and again in April. This year frankly, it is cold! What happened? I have always preached the theory that spring season (not actual spring) begins around the 21st of April, and even then it's too early for many plants. It's on the 21st that I make the decision as to whether or not to make available all of...

OUTDOOR NOTES ROBINS IN FEBRUARY?

Details

January 31st, the end of the first month of the new year, I sat at my desk staring out the window behind the desk, looking at a snow covered landscape. The sky was gray and snow was falling lightly. Trees and bushes stood out like lines in an etching.

Birds in the trees and bushes flew back and forth to my feeder and the ground below adding color to the scene. There were cardinals and blue jays. There were mourning doves and tufted titmice, black-capped chickadees and white-breasted nuthatches...
