Hunters Scrapbook (Dec. 27, 2013)


Dale Mattson shot this 10x12 bull moose while hunting six miles north of Prince George, B.C., on Oct. 10. The Island City man shot the moose, which sports a 50-inch rack, at 106 yards with a .338 caliber rifle.


Feeding fundamentals

Presentation and the type of feed used are important depending on the species. Birds like quail and sparrows often prefer grains spread out on the ground. Moving the feeding site often can help avoid the spread of disease. (JIM WARD photo)

A few simple guidelines to correctly ease bird feeding

Once the first snows hit, Northeast Oregon residents respond according to their interests. Skiers wax and tune up their equipment. Snowmobilers gas up and roll out their vehicles. If you’re a birdwatcher, now is the time to dust off your bird feeders and stock them with seed — unless you feed all year-round. 


Feasting, festing and Christmas cheer

Well, it’s finally here. The shopping is done, the mad wrapping will soon be accomplished and you all will trade the busyness of the last few weeks for a cup of wassail and perhaps a Christmas Eve party or a church service.

Physical education to include the art of archery for fourth- and fifth-graders 

ISLAND CITY —  La Grande School District fourth- and fifth- grade physical education students will soon be learning a little about physics and a lot about one of the world’s most popular sports.


Losing a friend

I lost Finn last week. I thought you should know since all of my stories from now on will be from his past. There are so many stories in a nearly 15-year friendship.


Holiday season stirs memory of European trip

The Austrian Benedictine Melk Abbey, left, features a wide winding staircase up to the public rooms, one of which is a museum made up of former smaller guest rooms that features a history of the evolution of the church. In St. Stephanís Cathedral in Vienna, right, was built in the Romanesque Gothic style with a massive south tower rising 445 feet.

Where has 2013 gone? It is December and we are already well into the holiday season. Last year at this time, Dale and I were partaking in the holiday merriment of Central Europe. I have previously told you of the sights, sounds and odors of the Christmas markets and those still linger in my thoughts as I prepare this year for our celebration here at home.

Union girl sets Oregon record

Kailee Smith of Union poses with her whitetail deer that set a new Oregon archery record.

Most 10 year olds prefer to watch Saturday morning cartoons, but Kailey Smith wasn’t like most kids her age. She would get up at 4:30 a.m. and go hunting with her uncle.

“She’s always had a passion for the outdoors,” Terry Blankenship said. “Kailey started off just taking pictures of the animals when she went out. She was always excited to go out to the woods.”


Our amenities are clean water, clean air and friendly people

What is the definition of amenities?


Fishing Report for November 29, 2013

Here is the weekly fishing report for selected areas in and around Southeast Oregon, provided by fisheries biologists for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Dove invasion

Gavin Young, from La Grande, admires a brace of Eurasian collared doves. Similar in taste to squab that is served in fine restaurants worldwide, the doves can now be hunted year-round and with no limit. Of course, itís more humane to harvest the birds in fall or winter when they are not raising young. (JIM WARD photo)

Northeast Oregon residents may not realize it, but aliens are lurking in their neighborhoods. They have beady-red eyes, dome-shaped heads and sharp claws. Even their name, Streptopelia decaocto, sounds like something from the roll call at Area 51. But, before you call Homeland Security, I’m simply referring to a rather benign little creature called the Eurasian collared dove.


A heaping helping of beautiful holiday

Ah, Thanksgiving. That beautiful holiday centered around roasting a large bird and eating more calories than one typically needs in an entire week.


Some Oregon deer, elk hunters face reporting penalty

MEDFORD — Nearly 34,000 hunters face a $25 penalty for failing to tell the state of Oregon how they did on their 2012 deer and elk hunts.
