Jeff DeBuigne

Spring is so close.

Colors are changing, pale green buds are patiently peeking out from riverbank maples. Tucked under bony rhododendron skeletons, tiny yellowed shoots emerging from wet leaves missed by fall’s rake tell us everything about the real calendar. River herring, Nature’s beloved harbinger of Spring, have arrived at Gilbert Stuart, swimming for Card Pond. Hardy fishermen know their telltale small bites on soft plastics beneath long, winding oily sheens calming choppy waters.

EXCLUSIVE

Ready, set, shovel!

Ice fishermen are just different. They can’t wait to drag an old sled full of tilts, ice chippers, frisky shiners the bait guy swore were “jumbos” and frigid pickle buckets out to the middle of a wind-swept lake, drill some holes and set up shop for a good day. They are perfectly happy shuffling around for hours, waiting for a flag, playing some hockey with the kids or chit-chatting about the fish they caught last year. What’s more, ice fishermen have their own fashion sense.

By the time we stop arguing, resources we need and love may be eviscerated by needs and wants driven by greed and short-sighted investment. These are sociologist Robert Mertonhese’s “unintended consequences.”

Celebrating Fall with an English Pheasant Hunt

EXCLUSIVE

Peasant Season is Upon Us

Pheasant season is a welcomed, classic celebration of fall. In cut corn fields we walk for hours, stepping over sharp stubs trimmed for silage, pushing past bending brown stalks left for cover. We work brush lots thinned by frost and hungry deer, with briars tearing at our knees, hoping to hear quick cackles before putting up ringneck roosters. Pheasant season means hunters working with their beautiful dogs, both happy as they might ever be.
