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.

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.

There’s one very special beagle I’ve been hunting with for almost 15 years — Tracker — truly the perfect name for him.

One of the big angling surprises for this year, although those of you who fished Saratoga Lake in May and early June probably already know, is that the bass bite is back.

This week, I’m going to discuss some of the other great fishing opportunities available on nearby waters that will provide some “reel” rod-bending action — fish we seldom talk about. New York state has been referred to as a fisherman-friendly state for a number of reasons. Here are just a few.
