    Checklist of gear for day paddling adventures

    Checklist of gear for day paddling adventures
    Consult your checklist of paddling gear before hitting the water. You wouldn’t consider taking a hike in the forest without carrying a daypack. Not if you’re smart anyway. A pack allows you to carry the essentials that you will definitely need, as well as those items you might if things go wrong for some reason. Better prepared than not...

    Break in hiking boots before hitting the trail
    Properly breaking in hiking boots is critical for comfort on the trail. Look at their feet. Long ago, in another place early in my career, a co-worker relayed that piece of advice. Her father passed it on to her previously. What he meant was, if you want to know how someone is faring, check out their shoes. A person...

    When outdoors, always filter drinking water
    Think of every movie you’ve ever seen that featured a cowboy, mountain man, explorer or pioneer on the open range, and water. At some point, there’s probably a scene where they kneel down by a creek or river, dip their hand, a cup or even their mouth in the cold, sparking clean, mountain water and take a drink that really...

    Getting help for those lost outdoors
    Paddlers who embark on any outing, but especially an overnighter, are always told the same thing. File a float plan. It lists things like who is on the trip, what the canoes or kayaks they’re in look like, where and when they got on the water, where and when they expect to get off, cell phone numbers for those on...

    Spring crappie fishing is prime for excitement
    Long and slender they are not, not when you get a big one. Reel in a crappie at least 10 inches long, and better yet 12 to 15, and you’ve got yourself a football-shaped fish. They put that slab body to work, too, fighting hard, something that makes them especially enjoyable on light tackle. And they taste great on the...

    Avoid, remove ticks, but forget about revenge
    Anyone who spends a significant amount of time outdoors these days knows ticks are a problem. And unfortunately, they’re more than just a nuisance. Ticks carry all manner of diseases, most notably Lyme disease. Finding one embedded in your skin is not cause for immediate despair, though. It takes hours – some professionals say as many as 24 to 48...

    Tips for finding, catching spring trout
    To the angler, spring commonly means trout, brooks, browns, rainbows and even goldens, widely known as palominos. They’re all great fun to catch. They’re associated so closely with this time of year, of course, because that’s when many state fish agencies stock them into streams and lakes by the tens and even hundreds of thousands. Fishermen and women flock to...

    Proper life jacket style, fit key to safe boating
    April is a deceptive month. It feels warm, especially in comparison to the cold days just past. It’s sometimes, if not always, sunny, and the days are longer. But don’t be fooled, not if you are a boater or angler. Water temperatures in April can still be downright cold, to the point of being dangerous. It’s why the ratio of...

    Use a wading staff to battle deceptive water, currents
    Boating safety instructors, those who teach newbies how to get in and out of canoes in particular, repeat it all the time. Maintain three points of contact. Meaning, you have two hands and two feet. At least three of those should be on the boat or on solid ground at all times. That keeps you from falling. Anglers, those who...

    Shooting is fun, but remember safe gun handling
    They’re not buying them to store in a closet. Interest in firearms skyrocketed in America in recent years. More firearms were sold in the past decade than in any similar period. Statistics show many of those people making purchases are first-time gun buyers. And they want to pull the trigger. According to a study commissioned by the National Shooting Sports...
