GON’s Trophy Room – March 2024

Since Georgia Outdoor News magazine started in 1987, we have continuously enjoyed sharing the accomplishments of others. Some months we’ll receive hundreds of pictures of happy hunters and anglers every year who just want to share their accomplishments. We are truly blessed that so many loyal Georgians think enough of GON to share with us about what they’ve accomplished.…

How To Make A Kid Tall

I believe that by now I am qualified to write a story about how to take a kid fishing. Boy oh boy, have I had some practice! And boy oh boy, has my patience been tested. I must confess that it is no major chore for me to acquiesce to my two boys’ frequent requests…

Georgia Turkey Found Dead Changed My View On Corn Feeders

Turkeys sure do have a tough time. It’s a wonder that they can survive at all in the wild, with the ongoing habitat destruction, the seemingly endless predation, Mother Nature’s unpredictable hazards and conservation-oblivious humans. But then, there is more that we may not necessarily think much about in our native turkey flocks. For me,…

Patriot

I am a patriot of the United States of America. I will never apologize for being one. I think the GON community will support me on this stance. It is one of the main ways I want to be remembered, followed by God and family. But no matter how patriotic I am, I will never…

Editorial-Opinion February 2024

In 1987, a handful of folks—principally Steve Burch and Brad Bailey—began a journey of blood, sweat and tears to create a new hunting and fishing publication in Georgia. From the beginning, GON was different. It looked different and it felt different. That dirty newsprint could leave a stain on your hands, and it wasn’t as…

My Best Hunts Were Never Planned

Today I hit 50. The half-century mark has caused me to reflect on what I’ve done—and haven’t done—in the way of hunting over the years. I’ve been to Iowa and killed a nice buck with my bow. I’ve shot an impala in South Africa and doves in Mexico. I’ve hunted all over this great state…

The Old 7-Point — A Missed Opportunity

It wasn’t the biggest deer I had ever seen. It wasn’t even close. But the regret of missing my shot opportunity haunted me and grew more painful as time went on. When the 2018 deer season came to an end, I still had two buck tags unused. It was the first season in a long…

The Right Way

Romans 12:15 says to “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.” It seems like a pretty simple concept to rejoice with people who rejoice, but there are certain instances in deer hunting that can make it difficult. One main example of that would be watching the neighbor kill a big buck that…
