Mark Nale: Open Fields Doctrine is important for the protection of Pennsylvania’s wildlife

When I read the reader commentary in the Dec. 22 issue of Pennsylvania Outdoor News, I thought, “Wow – this guy makes sense.”

The clubs lost in court and then appealed the ruling.

In those moments of contemplation, here is something to toss around in your head: What was the best hunting day and the best fishing day you ever experienced?

When beagles are chasing bunnies, it’s a great day afield

The cottontail was running at a leisurely pace down the farm lane. I was on public land, and soon the chase would begin.
Mr. Rabbit was going to find out that he needed to get going a bit more quickly real soon, but it hadn’t dawned on him yet. The three beagles we put down 15 minutes earlier were cold-trailing him.
