Welcome to My Web Site
Did that trophy buck catch your scent, snort and vamoose last fall? Did that big tom hang up and strut for an hour just out of shotgun range? Did that 10-pound bucketmouth break your line just before you scooped it into your net? Are you so disappointed, discouraged and discombobulated that you don’t know whether to laugh, cry or give up hunting and fishing and take up needlepoint?
Should you choose to laugh, or at least smile, at your troubles, I’d like to help you by sharing these stories of outdoorsfolks who have been in the same boat, blind or treestand as you many times over – probably with results that make your misadventures seem like the proverbial Sunday School Picnic or Stroll in the Park.
There’s not a whole lot of How-To Advice in any of these, but there’s plenty of How NOT To, so you might succeed by doing just the opposite of these characters. (If you want tips from real experts, see my collection of How-To articles.)
I call my stories “attempted humor stories” because I know that everybody has a different idea about what is and is not funny. I really believe, though, that most people who have spent much time in the woods and on the waters will recognize the predicaments in which Lordnose Nelson, Carlos Muldoon, Lead Pipe Finch, Big Ben Klock, Gloria Sternbeam, Fishhook Fields and other Kickapoo Countians find themselves. I know I do!
If not, let me know and I’ll refund your money – completely, if not necessarily cheerfully.
