Changes likely coming for Ohio grouse hunt

During a meeting of the Ohio Wildlife Council in mid-April, the council received a proposal to reduce the ruffed grouse season hunting dates and open counties due to long-term trends in declining grouse numbers.
Proposed grouse season dates are from Friday, Nov. 3 to Sunday, Nov. 26, with a daily limit of one bird. Season dates would be aligned for public and private land. The proposal would allow grouse hunting in Adams, Athens, Belmont, Gallia, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Noble, Pike, Ross, Scioto, Vinton, and Washington counties.

Minnesota’s Kyle Soltis lives life to the fullest out-of-doors during long battle with cancer

Kyle Soltis, 34, is a father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He takes these responsibilities seriously and tries to do everything he can to put a smile on someone’s face. 
Soltis was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1999 when he was 11 years old. Since then, he’s survived multiple surgeries and new diagnoses. Right now, chemotherapy and surgeries are no longer advancing his health, so he and his family have decided to stop those avenues and allow him to have the best life possible. 
“Right now, we’re just letting him live his life the best he can,” said Kressi Soltis, 34, Kyle’s wife. “Many people have been coming to see him and just making him as comfortable as possible.”
