SCOTT RALL COLUMN: American coots are ugly, but cute
WORTHINGTON -- I think it matters very little if you love them or hate them, this animal will always find a way into your field of vision. In...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Why do we value our resources so lightly?
WORTHINGTON -- So what is a walleye, a deer, or a duck worth? To me, they are worth thousands of dollars. Let me explain. I was reading the Star Tribune website the other day and they were reporting on a poaching ring that was busted in northern Minnesota. There, 31 native and non-native...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Trees, taxes, wildlife habitat all have deadlines
WORTHINGTON -- The only person who isn't neck deep in work today is the person who is not responsible for even one tree. I drove to my office on Thursday to write this column and I told my Mrs. that I had never seen anything like this in 50-plus years. I, like almost every other...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Thirty in thirty is a fabulous score
WORTHINGTON -- There are some folks who can remember a weather event from 30 years ago, or if it snowed last Halloween. I, for one, cannot. If there is not a record kept, I don't do well in total recall of those types of events. Other things do seem to stay in my memory bank for...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Where on earth is Wally's Wood Duck World?
WORTHINGTON -- Where on earth is Wally's Wood Duck World? This is the name of a pheasant hunting spot Thad Lambert and I used to frequent east of Worthington. It was a shallow slough that never had any water in it in the fall, but seemed to be a paradise for a large number of wood...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Gun safety: Don't ask why, just do it
WORTHINGTON -- Dad doesn't hunt, mom wouldn't even hold a gun and junior has no interest, why on earth would I send my child to a firearms safety training program? What a great question and one I would like to take a few paragraphs to answer. About 11 percent of the population in...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: SCI means more than its initials
WORTHINGTON -- If you visit the Sioux Falls Zoo and, if you are like me, you will get wide-eyed when you get a chance to look over all of the different wild animals that are displayed in the lobby area. Many, if not most, of these large mammals will be from other continents. There...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Flames, barbecue and the outdoor connection
WORTHINGTON -- The human/animal interaction is an ancient attraction handed down for hundreds of thousands of years. We cannot make it go away, but we can ignore it or deny it exists in us. A speaker at the 30th annual Pheasant Fest shared an eye-opening explanation into the human/wild...

Column: Time for tax reform
ST. PAUL - For more than a decade, Minnesota has spent more than we raised in revenue, cut essential public services and increased the burden on property taxpayers. State leaders borrowed billions from our school and pushed Minnesota's fiscal challenges off for another day. It is...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: What about the frog?
WORTHINGTON -- When I write an outdoor column, which I have done just a handful short of 500 times, I often wonder if the subject matter is as interesting to the readers as it is to me. This column might not be like those other 500 that have come before it, but the content of this...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: It's time for the tough to get going
WORTHINGTON -- When the going gets tough, the tough get going. I wonder who can be credited for that saying? If you are like me, life has a way of never letting you get too comfortable. When I get just enough money saved up to acquire my non-necessary desired purchase, the truck...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Cool by a big measure
WORTHINGTON -- Last week, I wrote about a spearing outing that took place on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes in north central Minnesota. When I think about the diversity in nature, I continue to be overwhelmed.

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: These turn out better than you would ever expect
Now that the pheasant hunting season is over, it's time to try a few new recipes and some old favorites for wild game in my freezer. The biggest challenge with cooking almost all wild game is centered on the hunters' wife.

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Hunting season ends with good dogs, friends
WORTHINGTON - The end of another short week greets us today. With both Christmas and New Year's Day falling on works days, it made for two short weeks for many folks. But the holidays are over now and, with them, much of the rushing around that accompanies them. I am totally fine...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Set goals that are attainable
WORTHINGTON -- When I listen to nation-wide radio or watch national news, it makes me feel pretty good to live in the midwest. We don't have super storms like Sandy to deal with and there are no earthquakes or giant mud slides that threaten our existence. We have an occasional tornado...
