Outdoor Life - Enduring the winter while yearning for spring

Winter has arrived in middle Georgia and it always gets me down. I sneaked a look at my temperature gauge this morning and it registered a frosty 21 degrees. I stepped out on the back deck and the wind was clipping along at about 20 knots, making the wind chill factor about 60 degrees below my tolerance level. Rumor had it that it was so cold the chickens were lining up at KFC to wait their turn in the pressure cooker and Kim Kardashian was downgraded from hot to tepid.

Outdoor Life - Quail hunting trip brings back fond memories

Last week, I proposed a yearly calendar for your outdoor sporting endeavors and this past week I got started on mine. I suggested that you go quail hunting in February but our trip actually came a little early. My brother-in-law treated a couple of us guys to a hunt in South Georgia and I must report to you that it was about as much fun as I've had in a long time. Stomping around in the woods all afternoon brought back some long-lost memories of my younger days.
