Each spring comes in its own sweet time. Some years the ice is long gone by now and other winters like this one seem to last extra long. Whichever way it happens, it always seems to come all at once, once it decides to warm up. For spring fishermen, water temperatures are the key to the spring...
In the late 1800s, a Nodaway County hunter sighted down his rifle barrel on a large brown animal. He skillfully pressed the trigger and the rifle bucked. A few minutes later he stood over his kill. It was an elk, or Wapiti and it would provide a lot of meat for his family, and bragging rights in...
