Learning How To Cast

Rewind to the year 1995, on a sunny spring day, a younger… well much younger… version of myself was strutting out of a hardware store, proudly carrying a brand spanking new Quantum baitcasting combo. Now, that might not sound like that big a deal, but in my mind, I was headed straight to the Bassmaster…

GON’s Trophy Room – February 2023

Labels, Canceling And Nuance

It’s a sad day in America when a good man passes away yet we have to worry about labels like environmentalist and conservationist as being bad words. Long before there were terms to describe what we were doing, it was hunters and fishermen who protected and enhanced our lands and waterways. Regardless of the word…

A Giant Connection

The Inaugural Jug Fishing Trip 

To say they were excited is a massive understatement. I had built up the trip for weeks to my two boys, discussing the process of jug fishing. When we arrived at Lake Oconee, the first thing we did was tie on small hooks, snap on corks and bait up some red wigglers on their fishing…

9-Year-Old Charlie Drops “Droopy”

My 9-year-old son Charlie has had some very good luck hunting so far. He was able to tag out on bucks last year. Those were his first two deer ever. This year he had an ancient buck that he wanted to kill. The buck didn’t have the best rack, and I told Charlie after he…
