Spring is here; throw another log on the fire

Michael Condon
3/22/2011 -

Finally the calendar tells us that spring has arrived. That is a good thing. Spring means the return of fishing season. But as I look out my window I can’t help but think the calendar just doesn’t have a clue.

The wet and stormy weather says “throw another log on the fire.”

Truth in advertising requires that I state up front that this report is not about my most recent fishing adventure. It is more about fishing adventures that I hope are just around the proverbial corner.

Shooting at the end of time?

Q. This situation happened to me. Five minutes before the end of shooting time I knocked down a snow goose that fell out of range and started swimming. I waded after it in the flooded rice field but couldn’t catch it or get within range until after shooting time ended.

In a case like that, do I shoot late or let it go and risk a waste of game citation?

Do wardens consider “spirit of the law” as opposed to “letter of the law?”
