Almy: Small creeks a buck hotspot

Ponds and lakes offer deer the water they need every day, but streams provide whitetails a lot more than just water. They allow them to quench their thirst while also finding cooler temperatures and thick cover. This makes them terrific early-season hotspots that are often neglected by most hunters. comments

Almy: A clover blend worth trying

When the founder of Bassmasters, Ray Scott, decided to try to find the best food landowners could plant for attracting and holding whitetail deer, little did he know he was starting a multi-billion dollar wildlife food plot industry. The time was the late 1980s, and his first offering was a blend of agricultural clovers deer especially liked in experiments he did on his property in Alabama. comments

Almy: Tips for reeling panfish

No fish are more appealing to go after on a hot September day than panfish. Unlike bass, trout and stripers, which can sometimes be difficult to catch, species like crappies, bluegills and white bass are almost always willing to nab a lure, fly or bait. They're made to order for those days when you want to take it easy, kick back and enjoy being out on a lake or river without too much concentration on finesse tactics -- yet still come home with a cooler full of fish! comments

Fauber: Opener critical for SU

All throughout fall camp, one common theme has been repeatedly addressed by players and coaches in Shenandoah University's football program -- the need to develop the collective confidence and consistency that the Hornets severely lacked last season. SU can now stop talking about that goal and prove that things will be different in 2014. comments
