Guns and Cornbread: It’s Time to Go Catfishing

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

Don’t ask me why but lately I have been thinking about catfish. That’s right, catfish, those whiskered denizens of a lot of our local lakes and rivers. We have talked about catfish here before but I felt it was time for another little heart to heart about these misunderstood and tasty fish. So named because […]

Guns and Cornbread: Pack the Tent & The Skillet Southern WV… It’s Time to Go Camping

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

Guns and Cornbread: Requiem for a Gobbler Season

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

Knowing it was coming didn’t ease the pain any. He had been awake at least thirty minutes before the alarm jolted the house. He didn’t really mind, the house seemed too quiet most of the time anyway. It felt like a place that needed a jolt, as if something had to give, somebody needed to […]

Guns & Cornbread: Safety First in the Spring Woods.

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

The scene was all too familiar. A beautiful piece of woods, a bright spring morning, and the song birds were in full chorus. But I knew when I stepped on the little white oak flat in front of me things would change in a hurry. Along with two other DNR Officers I had been called […]

Guns and Cornbread: Trout & other Springtime Maladies

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

What is it with trout? Can any of you tell me? I hope that you can. How can something as simple as a fish swimming in the water, minding his own business, just being a fish, cause so much flap and controversy? Pictured above: Clark Ellis with a nice rainbow trout. I have observed this […]

Guns n’ Cornbread: Are You Stuck in February?

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

“In the depths of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer” Albert Camus I hate getting stuck. I have had vehicles stuck up in some of the nastiest places that you have ever seen. Usually there was rain and snow and lots of mud involved, along with a good portion […]

Guns & Cornbread: Winter is the Time for Beagles and Bunnies.

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

Look in here! Seek! Get ‘em! Look here!” My hunting buddy’s shouts were measured and rhythmic. He repeated the words over and again, giving emphasis when he stepped in likely looking pieces of cover. When he reached something he thought was especially inviting his tone would change and he would increase the tempo. This meant […]

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

I hope that you have not forgotten what it was like to be a ten-year-old kid on Christmas morning. Now add to that you are a kid in a hunting and shooting family. You have been wishing, hoping, and praying that you will see that new gun under the tree. Can you remember this? Think […]

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

Guns & Cornbread: Shotgun History is Alive and Well in the Shadow of the Appalachians.

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, Guns and Cornbread, Larry Case

Life was hard in 1756, but March of that year didn’t seem too bad. St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated for the first time in New York City at a quaint little joint called the Crown and Thistle Tavern. Things started to go downhill by May of that year when Great Britain declared war on France. […]
