LITTLE ROCK – One of Arkansas Game and Fish Commission chairman Fred Brown’s chief platforms, he said recently, is to lead the restoration of the northern bobwhite in Arkansas. Brown and several other commissioners were in attendance as the AGFC held a two-day “Quail 101” seminar in Mayflower with its wildlife biologists, wildlife management area managers and others. Experts from nearby states that have re-established quail habitat in recent years spoke to the gathering about their successes.
New year new you. Right?
WASHINGTON — Expecting a baby? Congratulations! Better put plenty of money in your savings account.
HULL, Ill. — Tucked away off the back roads of Pike County is a new destination for area youth looking for mentoring and the thrill of the hunt.
BOISE, Idaho — The first time I tried cross-country skiing, I was in junior high in southern Minnesota wondering why anyone would want to work that hard in bitter cold when they could be downhill skiing (or hiding indoors) instead.
LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — The holiday season is over but demand for L.L. Bean’s famous boot marches on.
Chilly winter weather has finally arrived! My daughter, Julia, has been excitedly waiting and waiting for the first snow. Finally, a week ago, we got our first flurries here in southern Illinois but, unfortunately, they did not stick around. Sled rides with Daddy and making snowmen rank on the top of Julia’s list of wintertime favorites. This winter I’ve been kept indoors more organizing items from our recent move, but it’s been a perfect way to spend more time with the children.
