On the Trail by Ron Steffe

Snow geese coming to Pennsylvania early this year

Call it climate change, a freakish mild winter or little snow cover, but huge flocks of greater snow geese have made their way into Pennsylvania, especially the southeastern portion-much earlier than normal.

A most dreadful waste in Pennsylvania 

The carnage of deer and other wildlife hit on Pennsylvania highways is a horrifying loss of one of the state's most important and loved resources.

About This Blog


Ron Steffe grew up in the farm country of Berks County, where he still resides today. His first hunting outings began at the age of 8. Those episodes consisted of following close behind his father on small game hunts, a broken .22 rifle in hand, with which he pretended to shoot his share of fleeing quarry. His angling experiences started at about the same time. A member of the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association and the Outdoor Writers of America Association, he has been published locally, statewide and nationally, most often reflecting upon first-hand outdoor experiences, in which he still fully engages today.
