An Alaskan moose-hunting saga, part 5: The journey concludes

Disgruntled, I began hiking down the gravel road in the darkness, my wet boots sloshing with every step. It was a quick pace, and I swung my arms for added speed. I told myself that the faster I walked, the sooner I’d be done. I was so close to getting out now.
Why hadn’t I just marked that bike with the GPS? The road into this area is a 29-mile-long stretch of gravel. You would have no business being here if you weren’t hunting, fishing, or camping. That road doesn’t get a lot of traffic.

Ducks not showing as steep of declines in eastern U.S. than across the Prairie Pothole Region

You may have heard recently about a significant downturn in the North American waterfowl population, but breeding duck numbers in the eastern U.S. and Canada didn’t experience declines as steep as the national level.
That’s the gist of a report from the Pennsylvania Game Commission, which has seen only three of the seven species surveyed in the east showing slight decreases.  According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report on 2023 waterfowl populations, seven of the nine species surveyed showed declines, and some of them rather sharp.

At 101 years old, canoe racer Mike Fremont honored for his conservation efforts on Ohio rivers

Earlier this summer, the Ohio Scenic River Association awarded its highest recognition to Mike Fremont, a 101-year-old canoe racer who has started many local, state, and national organizations that protect rivers. Fremont and his partner won the last race they were in on June 10, 2023.
Fremont, who has gained national recognition for his continued participation in competitive paddling events and his advocacy for river conservation, received the Glenn Thompson Award. The Glenn Thompson Award honors a person’s service to protecting and raising awareness of Ohio’s rivers. This is only the third time the Ohio Scenic River Association (OSRA) has bestowed the Glenn Thompson award.

Anglers not the only thing changing in fishing

I recently wrote about some changes in the behavior of a couple of professional fishermen. That got me thinking about all the other changes in the sport of fishing.
The changes in fishing tackle and equipment boggles my mind. Rods are more sensitive, reels are faster and more reliable, baits catch more fish, and the list goes on and on.
