Eric Hahn: turkey guide

April 28, 2010 at 01:00 PM

Teaching school is obviously tough work, as evidenced here by Mattoon teacher Eric Hahn, napping during a recent turkey hunt.

Hahn’s “close friend” Bobby Hartbank submitted the picture.

Man am I glad none of my turkey hunting partners had a camera with them over the years. Some of my best naps have come while leaning against a tree in the spring woods while big gobblers walk right past.

April 28: Picture of the Day

April 28, 2010 at 10:25 AM

Someone asked me in passing the other day how they could identify asparagus while driving down the road.

At first I lied. Then I decided that’s not the kind of person I want to be.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Or in this case, a thousand spears of wild asparagus.
