    Wolverine, not the red dawn kind or the x man.

    Wolverines are rarely sighted even up here in Alaska. I've only seen a wolverine on 2 different occasions in 30 years...both while sheep hunting in the high country. Neat animals.

    There is an agreement finally. McCarthy said the House will vote Wednesday, which would then send the bill to the Senate. Once the bill reaches the Senate, where Democrats have the majority, the pace of action could slow if senators try to hold up the bill, possibly with amendment votes. That...

    The Other SCOTUS Ruling

    The Supreme Court will soon issue rulings, on affirmative action, student debt relief, and the First Amendment and gay rights. The student loan will be interesting since it has been paused for three years and 8 extensions! The New York Times is not happy: Public approval of the court is at a...

    How to lead a goose

    For incoming shots, angle make a difference. If the bird is coming in but the angle is 45 degrees or less, butt, belly, beak, bang! If you wait too long and the bird is directly overhead, a much greater lead is required.

    2023 big game plans
