    Awhile back, I had a young fellow ask me about what he might need in the field when he was judging field trials. This fellow had been doing some 1-day and puppy hunts on foot, but he was going to start using a 4-wheeler, which is good, especially in the …

    June is a lazy time for beagles and hunters. It’s hot, the grass is high, the risk of snake encounters increases and it’s just not a great time to spend long hours crashing through unforgiving new greenery. In some states it’s not even legal to train hunting dogs in late spring …

    Barking up the Right Tree

    Max McCoy Sr.


    March is here, time for the daffodils and many other spring flowers. They are on their way. Most all hunting seasons are closed in my state.

    Wood cutting time is also here for me; I’m making plans for next fall. I like to get my wood early; that way it has time to …

  • Turning The Corner – Rabbit Hunter

         Somewhere around about the middle of February rabbit hunters will notice a distinct change in the air. Sure, it’s still officially winter, and even your basic ground hog knows there’s likely to be six more weeks of snow and cold to contend with, but this is rabbit hunting, and I prefer to listen to the cottontails and hares, whose subtle switch from …

  • Masterpiece Cabin – Hunters Horn

       It was a particularly hot, muggy summer day in 1948 and we were chopping cotton in the west field. I was nine, due to reach adulthood of 10 in November. Dark clouds gathered to the north, with the promise of rain, but they were different kinds of ominous clouds, soon casting an eerie yellow hue over our field, and sucking the oxygen …

         I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Leopards did a fine job representing themselves in the hunts and shows across the nation. They won on the plywood as …

  • Huntin’ Cohutta – American Cooner

         Nestled in the mountains of North Georgia is the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area. It is some of the best hunting to be found; that is, if one doesn’t mind hunting the mountains. I grew up coon hunting the mountains and feel there is no better hunting — period. Climbing the steep ridges is sometimes rough and there may not be the amount …
