Windsor County, VT – Recently, local license holder and hunter Tim Biebel has been accused of being a “Non-Consumptive User.” The term Non-Consumptive User has gained recognition over the last few years among those who hunt as the politically correct term for an anti-hunter. However, some claim that Biebel’s lack of success afield qualifies him for the label.

“He really doesn’t harvest anything,” claimed one hunter. “How can he be considered a consumptive user if he didn’t, in fact, consume anything?”

“He definitely qualifies,” stated another hunter confidently. “Dude’s a train wreck in the woods.”

How Long Can A Loon Hold Its Breath?

Just how long can a loon hold its breath under water? Longer than I thought, that’s for sure!

The legend of the underwater loon goes like this. I was sitting on the dock enjoying the view at the end of a long day of fishing, catching salamanders, and swimming when a loon popped up out of nowhere barely twenty feet from me.

The sight of the buggers was surprising to me as I had never seen them before. If you remember,  I decided to reach out to the Inland Fisheries Division with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to see if they could provide any insight on my personal discovery. They didn’t let me down, and their response gives me some hope I may catch a few more fish than normal this year!

Fish Lice And Stuff.

Pickerel Fish LiceI hate yard work with a passion. That’s not entirely true, I don’t mind yard work when I feel like I am accomplishing something, but that’s not the case with my yard. It’s a disaster. I can’t get anything to grow like it should. I was out on my hands and knees working away one night this past weekend when my German shepherd, Rayna, circled upwind of me and dropped a potent reminder as to why my lawn is in terrible shape. If I hadn’t already been on my knees when she performed the dirty deed I surely would have ended up there. She’s a good girl, just not very lady like sometimes. It’s disgusting enough to make a man want to give up and go fishing. So that’s what I did!
