GO WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGHYou've got enough excuses not to get out and hunt this winter. It's too cold. It's too warm. There's not enough snow. There's too much snow.Don't let that last one keep you inside; there's no reason you can't strap on a pair of snowshoes and hit the trails for, well, snowshoes for one thing.If you're new to the snowshoe market, you might quickly become overwhelmed with...
Deer hunters in particular look at coyotes as a major threat to the whitetail herd. They decry DEC regulations that actually set a specific (Oct. 1-March 31) coyote hunting season, convinced instead they should be fair game anytime.Whether their fears are legitimate doesn't matter. What does matter is that, right now, you can get out there and hunt coyotes. And with deer season now behind us, if...
My first hunt may have been a grouse hunt. In truth, it may not have been a hunt at all, just a walk with the shotgun and the dogs. If they flushed a bird, well then, the hunt was on.That was likely in the Southern Tier before we moved to the North Country.

The snow and ice is here, while it might not stick around for too long, the cold weather up high just might. No matter the course of the future, the current conditions are what you should think about. With that being said, get out your traction devices. Snowshoes?

Along with your typical “As Seen on TV” type stuff there are also ample home remedy ideas, do they work? Who knows! I won’t try and cover the...
“It’s all about watching the dog work.”It’s 9AM and I’m walking carefully through the brush a mile or so into the Adirondack wilderness. It’s a crisp fall day with color just starting to really pop, the cool air keeping us alert, but not cold. There are no trails, no gaggle of hikers in front and back of me, no crowd at the summit taking turns instagram-ing the best view. Just me, my guide Scott...
In the Whiteface Region, we relish getting close to the outdoors no matter the season. Winter turns our mountains into a slippery, frost-covered playground for snowshoeing, boarding, skiing, climbing, and fat tire biking. Here’s the catch: If you’re looking for snow and ice there’s no avoiding the cold, but that doesn’t mean you have to be cold.I learned how to dress for the winter by trial and...
