Digesting Michigan’s deer regulation tweaks

Michigan’s deer managers aim to enhance “deer hunting opportunities for Michigan deer hunters this year and beyond,” according to a recent news release announcing several changes in regulations.

Pennsylvania game farm supplying 30,000 pheasants to New York

A central Pennsylvania pheasant-rearing facility has begun supplying New York with ring-necked pheasants in a restocking effort at DEC’s Reynolds Game Farm to provide birds for the state’s hunters this fall.
DEC is purchasing 30,000 birds from Mahantongo Game Farms, a sprawling commercial facility in Dalmatia, Pa., that’s been in operation since 1935, and is one of the largest game farms in the country. DEC is purchasing the pheasants for about $405,000 after losing its flock earlier this year to an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza.

Film, “Mending the Line,” spotlights redemptive value of fishing

It isn’t so much that life imitates art – or vice-versa – as it is that both are parallel tracks headed in the same direction.
And when you look at them out to the horizon where they merge, they appear to be a single line. All of which is a roundabout way of addressing fishing in movies. Or movies about fishing. Again two tracks, the same direction.
