A logo revamp for fall, getting pumped for Thanksgiving and readers from all over the world … we’re looking forward to our first birthday here at The WON, and Babbs in the Woods points you to some ideas for decorating with natural art, found at Turkey Country magazine.
Babbs used to drive around in her Suburban on her way to a hunt with a gun-of-the-season in tow, along with Muck boots and yes, a pair of dowsing (er, divining) rods. Read about her skill that she found out about late in life. Don’t knock it. Dowsing rods might come in handy next time you’re afield and bored, or looking for an unmarked grave.
This week’s BlogLight shines on Brigid from The Plains, who blogs at mausersandmuffins. That about says it all, except for the outstanding photography and outtakes from Brigid, a woman who knows what she likes, and that includes chocolate cappucino cheesecake bars and interchangeable lenses for her shooting glasses.
Outdoor photographer Stacey Huston wasn’t sure she would be able to capture the essence of a primitive archery hunt for the taping of Journey with Red Hawk. She surprised herself as she relaxed into the surroundings, realizing that set-up shots can still work outside. Read about her experience at this week’s Shoot to Thrill.
When Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate for a great outdoor photo, enter outdoor photographer Bill Konway and his tips on how to make that shot count — without having to go back to the studio and use PhotoShop. Bill’s recent experience in the field with TV personalities Pat Reeves and Nicole Jones make for a teachable moment in outdoor photography in this week’s “Shoot to Thrill” column.
She has a name that is remembered — Tasha Hanish. She’s this week’s “My Job … My Outdoors” profile and describes her life as a professional shooter, mom and business woman for readers of The WON.
The SHOT Team — Suburban Housewives on Target — visits a local range in this installment of Babbs in the Woods. And, the gals issue a challenge to those other “housewives” to come and meet them afield or at a range somewhere. Now, that would be a reality show worth watching!
Who’d a thought that Babbs would take to a pink I.O. Inc. AK-47 like a moth to a flame — a very hot, pink version — the first one off the production line? Read her analysis of this gun and a comparison to her husband’s macho FN FAL. And check it out, because the colonel shot the pink AK too.
We don’t have to be equal in all publications. Babbs took a little heat for her approval of the new Turkey Country magazine’s combining women’s news with its other specialty publications. She elaborates on why sometimes it’s all right to be separate and not equal, and sometimes, it’s just better to be equal.
Sometimes things in adult life remind us of what is was like to be a teenager … and in this case, Babbs turned on the radio and heard her senator, in his own words, boldly proclaim his loyalty to some unwritten rule somewhere in the hallowed halls of the Senate, and in the process, betrayed his constituents — who thought he stood for a lot more than this … and it reminded Babbs of a boy she imagined she liked.
