Keeler: Injuries have slowed Nationals

I have to admit, I haven't been paying much attention to the Major League Baseball lately. This is one of the periods where my love for baseball takes a backseat to the NBA and NHL playoffs, and of course, the French Open. However, when I looked at the MLB standings a few days ago I realized the Washington Nationals were ...exactly where I thought they'd be considering they look more like a MASH unit than a team this season. comments

Almy: How to avoid a bear attack

Picture this scene. You're hiking towards a distant fishing hole when the trail makes a sharp turn. Coming around the corner, you're suddenly face to face with a bear hunkered over a freshly killed deer. It rises up on hind legs, mouth covered in blood. Then suddenly it drops to all fours, flares its ears back and glares at you menacingly. comments

Almy: Rubber on flies offers appeal

Bass and bluegill fishermen have long known the appeal rubber legs on flies offer. Many cork and foam poppers sport these gangly, floppy appendages. Whether they imitate frogs, mice, terrestrials or aquatic insects, warmwater gamefish grab them enthusiastically. comments

Almy: Crayfish lures produce results

Minnows may be the staple food for bass. And insects are certainly the bread and butter diet for trout. But if you show either of these popular gamefish a crayfish, they'll gobble it up in a flash. There seems to be something about the taste appeal of these crustaceans that bass, trout, and also walleyes, pike and panfish find irresistible. comments

Almy: Summer wildlife food plots

Last week we looked at the question of seed choice when planting food plots for wildlife. It's too late for early-spring plantings in the Shenandoah Valley, but it's time to gear up and make preparations for putting in late-spring and early-summer plants. Then just a month or two after that, it will be time to put in late summer and fall crops. comments
