Doylestown native William Browning started shooting trap when he was only six years old. Since then, he has won state, regional, and national honors as a member of the Buckeye Chippewa youth shooting team at the Copley Trap Club.
While he is proud of all his accomplishments to date, the 2022 Chippewa High School graduate has his sights set even higher. His goals are to become a member of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit and to compete for Team U.S.A. shooting in the Olympics. He’s well on his way to accomplishing both.
My friend Mike Jeresek retired from teaching and coaching a few years ago. Since then, he’s devoted his considerable post-career energy to at least two outdoor pursuits: shepherding area bluebird populations and catching trout.
Jeresek gave the bluebirds a rest and invited me along for a morning of trouting. Never one to turn down a chance to fish with an expert, I readily agreed.
I am sure that everyone is aware that legally you can only use fish for bait that are caught in the same body of water where you are fishing. That goes for panfish and game fish – and for seined minnows, too. The intent of the rule is to prevent the spread of invasive species.
For example, flathead catfish love to dine on bluegills. Although you can use bluegills for flathead bait, the bluegills have to be caught from the same body of water that you will be”flatheading.”
