Acorn amounts anticipate wildlife conditions

Successful hunters and wildlife photographers aren’t just lucky: they also understand the interaction of wildlife and their environment. They can see travel lanes before they’re used, food sources before they’re available and they watch wind directions and...

PUBLICITY STUNT OR PUBLICITY GRAB? Maybe it’s time for a revolution against the liberal press. I was enraged recently after reading a comment from USA Today writer Nancy Armour. She had the audacity to say that Mike Pence was wrong for voicing his opinion when he left an...

600 species of spiders in Ohio

Farms are great places to learn about spiders, and it was no exception for me. I was introduced to a wide array of spider species on our Missouri farm. I learned to avoid the brown recluse in the dim dry areas of the barn, and to avoid the black widow along the block wall in the...
