Fry, Fry, Fry. For campfire cooking (and every day) it’s tough to beat a cast iron skillet for an even cook at high temperatures. Well-seasoned cast iron cookware is great for the deer shack, fishing camp and other hunting and fishing destinations, its heft is its only drawback for mobile hunters and anglers, but many swear the extra weight is worth it.
Dry, Dry, Dry. A new drought monitor gets released today. Will the moderate drought conditions gripping the northern tier of the state subside with recent rains, or will they continue to slide south as yellows and beiges take hold in the weekly updated map?
Cry, Cry, Cry. Identifying animals by just the sounds they make can be a fun outdoor activity, and distinguishing species just based on their calls can be a challenge.
