Red-tailed hawks always looking for a free meal
As we drove down from Albany the other day, I was amazed at the number of red-tailed hawks that were in the trees and on the fence posts along Interstate-88.

Winter is just around the corner, but believe it or not, spring is, too
OUTDOORS COLUMN BY RICK BROCKWAY ... The old-timers used to say, "You get Walton Fair, Labor Day and winter in that order and that close together."

It's hard to predict exactly where the deer will be when season begins
OUTDOORS COLUMN BY RICK BROCKWAY ... It's hard to believe that archery season for deer opens in about six weeks here in upstate New York. Yeah, opening day is Oct. 1.

You really don't have to be perfect to set up a tent
OUTDOORS COLUMN BY RICK BROCKWAY ... I'd thought I had seen it all when it came to setting up a tent. I watched a young couple set up a tent in the Adirondacks a few years back. It was a small, free-standing, backpacker's tent, so once assembled, they could move it just about anywhere.

Do the Jitterbug and wait until it's almost dark to tackle the really big fish
OUTDOORS COLUMN BY RICK BROCKWAY ... My wife wanted to go fishing the other day. She thought a few fresh fillets would really hit the spot. I suggested we take our fly rods. After all, hard-hitting and savage-fighting fish on light tackle is a lot of fun. Well, that's where it started.

Don't let a wet hike in the Adirondacks dampen your spirits
OUTDOORS COLUMN BY RICK BROCKWAY ... A few years ago, I headed out on a three-day backpacking trip. The weather was good, if you don't mind hiking in 90-degree heat. But you can never tell about the Adirondacks. It can be sunny in one valley and raining cats and dogs just over the next mountain.
