T. Boone Pickens

“If someone ever offers you a bird dog, don’t take it. You wouldn’t just give someone a bird dog that was actually worth a damn, would you? Hell no, you’d keep it yourself, so why would someone give one to you?” Pickens then added, with a wry smile, "of course, people give me some pretty nice bird dogs these days."

If you think you've ever spoiled a dog, you haven't seen this kennel.

Shed Hunting

Now is the prime time for shed hunting. This site, Trophy Pursuit, is a great resource for all things shed hunting. I know that there are several bucks I've watched all winter that should be dropping. I think it's time for a walk...

Adirondacks XC Ski

Adirondack Lake Harris

The Adirondacks are a hard place. It's cold, windy and lonesome in the winter. Which makes it wonderful if you have the temperament for those sort of things.

Probably because it's a state park, it doesn't get as much attention as some of the others such as Yellowstone and the Smokey's.  But it's plenty wild and you could get lost in a bad way if you're not careful - in a really good way if you are.

With more than 46 real mountain peaks within a days drive of more than 1/2 the country, I'm slightly surprised it doesn't get more attention. But I'm not really disappointed. It is a hard, wild place. And I like it like that. If you've been, you know what I mean and I'd love to hear your stories.
