‘Explosive’ Vito Tisdale drawing elite offers



Vito Tisdale’s explosiveness is what immediately stands out to high level coaches when they see him play and why he has college scholarship offers from some of the nation’s best programs. “His explosiveness just jumps out at you,” said Bowling Green High School football coach Mark Spader. “He’s primarily being recruited as a strong safety and that’s where I would […]

Most boat docks are ‘fish magnets’

In the heat of summer even fish will look for places to find shade and relief from the sun. One of the most common places to do this on most lakes is around boat docks. I have seen boat docks just big enough to get in and out of a fishing boat all the way up to ones that look […]

Ed Collier: May 9, 1936 - June 7, 2019

Struttin’ Time and the hunting community have lost one of our finest. Our friend, Ed Collier, of Premium, crossed “The Silent River” on June 7 at his home, with his loving family by his side.

One hunting dream ends, one survives

Here it is, June already. Time waits for no man nor reason, I have been told. This will be my first year in many that I will not be going to Maine to hunt black bear. I love hunting with my friends, Frank and Cathy Lawler. We have had a great run together and I have left Maine each year […]

Ex-UK star Reggie Hanson writes new book



Former Kentucky basketball player and assistant coach Reggie Hanson has kept up with college athletics since getting out of coaching in 2014 and has remained “invested” in college basketball.

Trout: Cool and overlooked by many

Trout fishing is one of the least talked about fishing there is, but I really do not know why. It may be that most anglers simply may not fully understand this fish and how to fish best for it. Trout must have cool, clean water to live in and prefer clear water with some type of current, such as a […]

Well, so far we have gotten 19 replies from our unofficial poll of the number of hunters who have had their names drawn for Kentucky’s elk hunt and the number that applied. Of the 19 who applied and got back with me, a total of two had their names drawn. What I love about this draw, although I don’t apply […]
