Tales of camp dogs

KUNTZ: Reflections on the 50th reunion
"It's been rough and rocky traveling but I'm finally standing upright on the ground. And after taking several readings, I'm surprised to find my mind's still fairly sound." — Willie Nelson I've had a time of it during the last decade with seven surgeries in seven years, a drop...

Decoy carver gives wood a lifelike touch
MIDDLE RIVER, Minn.—Joel Huener says he's always been "kind of a rabid do-it-yourselfer," a trait that also rubbed off on his hunting and...

KUNTZ: A box of old stuff
The last time I saw my high school yearbook from 1967 ("Zee-ka-tow") was probably when we packed our belongings in Alaska and moved to Montana. That was in 1986. About a month ago, with my 50th JHS reunion approaching, I began speculating about which of the many boxes in our garage...

Fishing, stories and cigars
(First of two parts) For the third year in a row, we see a cow moose standing along the timber north of Roblin, Manitoba, and once we are in Saskatchewan, a black bear sprints from the edge of the gravel road leading to camp and scrambles up a white birch tree. On either side of...

Improvements in rods and reels
When I was a youngster growing up in the 1950s, most of us started fishing with spincast reels that we called "push-buttons" — Zebco 66s and 22s or Johnson Centuries. They had lousy drags and generally were a nuisance to use. Level-wind bait reels at the time had no spool disengagements...

Best time to fish? When you have time
I'm the first to admit I'm not a professional angler. When it comes to tips and tactics on how to land a lunker walleye or fill a stringer in short order, I've got more questions than answers. At times, I casually refer to myself as the human cold front because of a perceived lack...

Scourge of the mosquito
Mark Twain pondered the worth of the common housefly and didn't come up with a definitive answer, except to point out that God had a curious way of allowing the housefly to wreak havoc on animals, including humans. I suspect he would have said the same about the mosquito. Mosquitoes...

The breaking of fishing rods
For decades I transported fishing rods in PCV pipe holders that my Dad put together for me. A couple of my rods came with their own cases, and with most of my rods being one-piece spinning and bait-casting rods, all those tubes took up a lot of room in the box of my pickup. But they...

Tall tales of big pike
Tales of big northern pike always interest me, even though many of the stories may be "stretchers." One time I actually met a guy who with a straight face told me he caught a 46-pound pike in North Dakota and released it.

Doug Leier: Keeping an eye out for shorebirds
North Dakota’s prairie potholes get a lot justifiable credit for their role in helping sustain the continent’s waterfowl populations. What we don’t often hear about is the equally important role that prairie wetlands play in the life cycle of more than 30 shorebird species that...
