For the past five years, my wife and I have headed for Flagler Beach, Fla., and become short-time snowbirds. The temperatures are a bit more reasonable, and the only white stuff we walk on is sandy beaches. It’s amazing how quickly I got used to having the Intercoastal Waterway exactly 10 steps from the back screened-in deck of our rented condo and the Atlantic Ocean about a half-block out the front door.

Just about every day, I receive at least 25 emails related to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s gun control legislation and what Vice President Joe Biden’s task force on guns is up to. It’s getting to the point where it’s becoming hard to determine what’s true and what’s not.

The Great Sacandaga Lake again proved it’s one of the best fishing resources in the Northeast, based on the results of the two ice fishing contests held there last month.

As an avid small game hunter, I spend quite a bit of time at the SHOT Show looking at, touching and shouldering all the new shotguns, and usually pick a 12- or 20-gauge for my best of show, but not this year.

Last week, I wrote that this year’s 35th anniversary Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show could be their biggest ever — and it was.

This year’s Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) show will again be held at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Tuesday through next Friday. s I have done in the past 13 years, prior to the show, I contacted several shooting sports manufacturers willing to reveal something new they’ll be showcasing that I can include in my “Sneak Peak” column.

We all had tears in our eyes when the news of the horrendous shooting in Connecticut was announced, and my first thought was that something had to be done soon to stop these senseless killings, but I didn’t really feel that stricter gun control regulations and rules was the answer.

Last week, I discussed ice shelters and comfort, but the majority of ice anglers do not use shelters. For these anglers, Clam Outdoors has an Ice Chair and gear storage system I know for a fact is very comfortable. I borrowed one last year, and it sure beat sitting on a stool or bucket.

One of my favorite pastimes after the deer season is coyote hunting, which I usually begin after deer season.

We still have six days to hunt during the muzzleloading season with a bow, crossbow or a muzzleloader. You know they’re still out there, just keep trying.

Sleeping in is something many deer hunters have done, but there’s one hunter who actually shot his buck while wearing his pajamas. I’ve never done that!

The regular big-game season is quickly coming to an end, and I’m still wondering just how good/bad it’s been.

I have a hunting question for those over 60 years old and still avid big game hunters, especially those who sometimes hunt alone. How do you get your deer from the woods to your vehicle?

Are you as anxious as I am for Saturday’s opening of New York state’s Southern Zone regular deer season?
