White put his name in for Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep drawings every
year since 1976. His name was never drawn over the next 34 years.
“I was wondering if it would ever happen,’’ White said.
Then it did.
Eight months ago Bill Canavan of Island City was in the midst of six of
some of the most memorable and fulfilling months of his life.
Still he dreaded getting up each morning.
Why the apparent paradox?
Chris Dudley, the 6-foot-11 ex-NBA basketball player who narrowly missed
being elected Oregon’s next governor this week, would consider ducking
if he walked into this indoor archery range.
The range, in the basement of the Eagles Lodge, has a ceiling between
7 and 7 1/2 feet high. Dudley could easily touch it by barely raising
an arm over his head.
Tall visitors might not like the low ceiling, but it is a slam dunk
with most archers. The ceiling, filled with fluorescent lights, provides
near-perfect illumination for archers.
Riverside Park may soon be the destination of bicyclists throughout the Northwest.
The park is the proposed starting and ending point of a route that
could soon become part of the Oregon Scenic Bikeways Program, which is
run by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department.
|Four months after landing a monster kokanee, Ron Campbell has landed in the world record book — twice.
Submitted photo Ron Campbell of Pendleton holds the 9-pound 10-ounce kokanee that he caught at Wallowa Lake June 13.
The Pendleton angler, who took a 9-pound 10-ounce kokanee salmon at
Wallowa Lake June 13, learned last week that his fish is now officially
recognized by the International Game Fish Association as a world record
fish in two categories.
“Learning that was quite a rush,’’ Campbell said.
What happens when you combine more than 1,200 miles of driving, 40 miles
of backpacking in the remote wilderness, a marriage proposal and a
16-hour summit day climb to over 13,800 feet?
A trip you won’t soon forget.
The sight was unusual and sparked conversation, but not to the degree it would have a decade ago.
A bull moose was spotted in northern Baker County just south of
Medical Springs less than a week ago. A photo of it appeared on the
front page of Tuesday’s Observer.
Tradition versus technology — sparks fly wherever debates concerning it are raised, including the bow hunting arena.
La Grande outdoorsman Phil Gillette understands this first hand. He
is a bow hunter and a member of a committee of the Oregon Fish and
Wildlife Commission created to recommend what, if any, technological
devices should be allowed for use by bow hunters. The committee,
following some lively discussions, is concluding that technology is a
good thing as long as it does not make bow hunting less challenging.
|Biologist Cathy Nowak knows the answer before posing the question.
Nowak is among the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife staffers who work at the local Youth Pheasant Hunt every September.
year youths take the first pheasants of their lives during the weekend
hunt at the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area. Nowak can easily identify those
who had taken their first pheasant before they check out and report
their results to her.
The record sockeye being caught in Wallowa Lake is not the only reason salmon fishing is making headlines in Northeast Oregon.
Salmon fishing is also making news in the upper Snake River.
