Pro Membership Update: Cacklin’ Roosters in South Dakota

By Kent Danjanovich As the sun rises in the eastern skies, the daily ritual begins in South Dakota and its surrounding states. Wild pheasants, both roosters and hens, emerge from their resting places in search of food sources. Many head to roadsides to peck at some pea gravel for their gullets.

Spring Snows in Saskatchewan

By Kent Danjanovich I’ll have to admit – I really love the outdoors. Whether it’s grabbin’ my golf clubs and heading to my local course, packing my fly rod for a trip to Alaska or breaking a few clays with my trusty Browning shotguns in preparation for fall bird hunts, I just can’t get enough of it.

By Kent Danjanovich Alaskan water facts – Alaska has more than 40% of the entire nation’s surface water resources. About three-fourths of all fresh water in Alaska is stored as glacial ice that covers nearly 5% of the state. Alaska has more than 3,000,000 lakes, over 12,000 rivers, thousands of streams and creeks and an estimated 100,000 glaciers. Now that is pretty impressive!
