  • Duck, duck, gone? Cold weather pushes ducks south, hunters wait for northern birds to migrate

    Duck, duck, gone? Cold weather pushes ducks south, hunters wait for northern birds to migrate

    Friday, November 21 2014 2:58 PM EST2014-11-21 19:58:16 GMT
    The blast of arctic weather that invaded the region recently has brought much of what many hunters were calling a pleasant waterfowl season to a halt. The cold winds and dropping temperatures have pushed many ducks south, and hunters in certain areas are finding lakes and streams are freezing. But there should be more ducks to come.

    All-terrain wheelchair will make hunting possible for wounded veterans

    QUINCY -- As each customer passed by the all-terrain wheelchair parked in the main aisle Thursday inside GameMasters, they stopped and lingered. They leaned on the arms, testing the wheelchair's shocks and sturdiness. They pushed it to see how the tank-like tracks moved. A couple of them even sat in it.

    QUINCY -- John Clopton figured he was in for some long, boring days. An avid outdoorsman who guides for some select out-of-state hunters on his family's property in northern Adams County, Clopton wasn't seeing enough mature deer during the opening weeks of bow season to convince him the hunting would be prosperous once the rut started.
