Brother has tough day in the woods

By the time you read this, I should be sitting in the middle of a wheat field on a working 6,000- acre ranch.

Where it’s OK, afternoon hunt is best

I love being me — and having you as my friends. I was taught as a child growing up, along with many of you, that good things happen to those who wait. I have been there, done that many times over a long lifetime. As of a week ago, I would not have given my chances of getting in a […]
