Hunting for gifts?

Our holiday gift guide has something for every outdoorsman on your list

If there’s a segment of the population for whom the holiday-season dilemma, “What do you get the guy who has everything?” does not apply, it’s sportsmen. How could we possibly have everything when there’s so much cool new gear coming out all the time?

FOR THE HUNTER

The knife also has two additional blades and beautiful, intricate filigree etching on the bolster.

2 Beeman Sportsman Model 1079: If Ralphie from “A Christmas Story” were growing up in the aughts rather than the ’40s, he’d write a theme about why he wants a Beeman Sportsman Series Model 1079 air rifle for Christmas. With Next G1 camo. fiber-optic sights, a 4×32 scope and the “oomph” to fire .17-caliber pellets at 1,000 feet per second, all that’s missing is “a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time.”

Great American sporting towns where you can live your dreams-Part 2

Continue Part 1

EAST

Bangor, Maine

THIS IS A TOUGH, GRITTY PLACE that still shows its roots in timber, shipbuilding, and textiles. Here is where the tall trees ended up as masts and ship’s timbers. Now, like so many New England towns, Bangor has moved into the world of high tech and big malls, but probably the most famous fishing hole in the world lies inside its city limits. Traditionally, the first Atlantic salmon of the year that is pulled from this pool on the Penobscot is flown to the White House and presented to the President. By midcentury, there were no salmon in the river, but over the last couple of decades they have returned–though in much lower numbers–and anglers are once again fishing a rotation through the pool and, now and then, hooking up with the finest gamefish in the world.

Although Bangor holds one of the country’s strongest outdoor traditions, if the Penobscot salmon were all the area had to offer, it would be of minor interest to the sportsman. But there is more, much more, to Bangor.

The opportunities are more abundant and diverse here dim in any other city east of the Mississippi. Within easy driving range, you can hunt everything from moose–which have become plentiful enough to bring on a lottery-type season–to woodcocks, which can be found in the aspens and alders in the early fall. As for big game, there are moose and whitetail deer, which grow to tremendous size (dressed animals routinely weigh more than 250 pounds). Deer hunting in the vast timberlands above Bangor is as challenging and satisfying as it gets. You frequently hunt in deep snow, and it is so easy to get lost in the big woods that you’ll want to be sure of your map and compass skills…or carry a GPS.

Upland bird shooting in Maine means grouse and woodcocks. The big migratory flights of woodcocks begin in October, when weather pushes the birds down from Canada. On a clear, cold morning when the flight birds are coming through, the ground in your best cover will be covered with a chalk of splashings, and your dog might go off point to fetch a bird and point again before he has had a chance to make the retrieve. It can–and does–get that good. Continue reading

Great American sporting towns where you can live your dreams

SPORTSMEN HAVE TWO homes–the one where they pay the mortgage, raise kids, and vote and the one where their imagination resides. The first might have good schools and honest cops and maybe even big-leauge sports –but it probably comes up a little short when you want to fish for bass or hunt turkeys. There’s rarely a sweet, clean river close by with a reliable evening hatch. And you’d feel stupid–and probably get arrested–if you put up a tree stand in the old oak at the end of the block.

Then…there is the other place. The one you find yourself thinking about when you’re stuck in traffic. Here, something is always in season, and you don’t have to drive more than 30 minutes to get into something good. There’s land where you can hunt and water where you can float a canoe and cast to rising fish. There are fields aplenty, and if you put a dog out, it’ll point birds. There are people who see the buck in your pickup and cross the street to shake your hand. There is a respect for timehonored sporting traditions. There is a good place to go for breakfast before the sun is up, when you are wearing camouflage and have a duck call hung around your neck.

There is an old-fashioned sporting goods store where you can get what you need–everything from the hot new baits to briar-proofs–and talk to the clerk about the big racker that somebody spotted in a cornfield at dusk one day last week. There are a couple of local fishing tournaments–no prize money, of course, but the newspaper will print the results. Continue reading

What the right bike can do for you

The bicycle is a, simple machine that can help solve some of our planets most complicated problems. Traveling by bicycle can boost your health, slash your spending on transportation, and reduce your fossil fuel consumption–so it’s no surprise that bicycling is growing in popularity. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the number of annual trips made by bike has more than tripled since 1977 and now exceeds 4 billion. Biking to work is becoming more popular, too. Data from the U.S. government’s American Community Survey shows that the number of people who bicycle to work doubled between 2000 and 2009.

 

“The beauty of bicycling is that it fits every lifestyle, and its benefits are universal,” says Jeff Miller, president of the Alliance for Biking & Walking, a national coalition of bicycle and pedestrian advocates based in Washington, D.C. “Whether you bike 5 or 10 miles to work every day or pedal a few minutes to the grocery store once a week, you’ll build your health–and the health of the planet.”

4 Good Reasons to Start Pedaling

1. Save Money. The U.S. Department of Labor calculates that the average American family spends more than $8,700 a year on transportation–the largest expenditure after housing. Riding a bicycle can take a bite out of that expense by reducing the amount you spend on gasoline and oil. In 2009, that was an average $2,400 per household! Continue reading
