Nature Smart: Sandhill cranes on the Platte River

It was just before the pandemic that I’d last gone to see one of the most amazing natural spectacles in North America: the annual migration of sandhill cranes (Antigone canadensis) in south-central Nebraska. For the previous 30-plus years, I’d led a trip to view the crane migration each spring.
This year I had an incredible group of 10 who were fun and excited to see the cranes.

Panfish rule the Goose Lake roost in Minnesota’s Chisago County, but options are many

Chisago County’s Goose Lake consists of two basins that total a bit more than 750 acres. The basins are connected by a narrow but navigable channel that runs under a county road bridge.
The north end, where the public access is located, is basically bowl-shaped and shallow. The south basin features more structure and it’s deeper, so this is where you’ll want to concentrate most of your fishing efforts, especially during the open-water season.

Steve Carney: Enjoy your geese the jerky way

I love cooking game birds as much as I do walleyes and crappies, and over the years I’ve tried cooking Canada geese in a variety of ways, from crockpots to stir-fry, but I just hadn’t found a way I liked to eat it until I began making jerky.
The past two seasons I have harvested a few geese and kept the breasts in a freezer, and now I think I’ve come up with two jerky recipes that work for me.
