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...

Reminders for deer season
With North Dakota’s deer gun season license application deadline fast approaching, it’s a good time for a reminder to prospective hunters that the fastest and easiest way through the process is online via the state Game and Fish Department’s website. This is especially true...

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...

Thoughts on spring grizzlies
It's been more than three decades since I hunted coastal brown bears and more than four decades since I hunted interior grizzlies, but I must say that hunting them provided a measure of drama and excitement not found in hunting most game. Both interior grizzly and coastal brown bear...
