Several Kansas anglers fished earlier this summer in the 2017 Costa Bassmaster High School National Championship on Kentucky Lake in Paris, Tenn.
Three Kansas State anglers will compete for a pair of major titles next week, hoping to add to an already stellar season for the college fishing program.
Big Game Illustrated posted a pair of photographs on its Facebook page Tuesday morning, showing what appears to be a doe with antlers shaped like a ram's horns.
During a backpacking trip last summer in Eagles Nest Wilderness, Colo., Kayla Whitehead captured this surreal video of a moose running out in front of a vehicle on Highway 9.
For quite some time, I had been posting submitted photographs of deer, turkeys and other animals captured on trail cameras to my Rouse Outdoors blog on CJOnline.
I’ve come to the realization that they are more likely to be seen by outdoors enthusiasts if they are listed in the actual Outdoors section of our website, so I’m going to be running them as regular columns from now on with the header ”Trail Camera Trophies.” I’ll likely post some of the photographs in the print section, as well, so keep your eyes peeled for some great, candid shots of nature’s delights.
DOVER — People wrongly believe Kansas is nothing but flat farmland — a flyover state, they say.
That assertion couldn’t be further from the truth, as the state has an overwhelming abundance of beautiful land features, including the majestic Flint Hills, the Big Basin Prairie Preserve, Rock City and the Wakarusa Wetlands.
Among the natural landmarks dotting the map is the native stone scenic byway along K-4 and K-99 highways, in particular Echo Cliff Park, 24927 Echo Cliff Road. The area is made up of sandstone bluffs that wind along Mission Creek in Wabaunsee County, about a 1 1/2 miles west of Dover. It has a rich Indian history, according to the Kansas Sampler Foundation, and arrowheads have been found in the area that date back to 800 to 1000 A.D., when the Woodland Indians resided in the area.
Anglers will have about a week of fantastic fishing opportunities to kick off the month before things start to cool down, according to the Farmer’s Almanac’s Fishing Calendar.

Big game and turkey regulations and an update on current Kansas Walleye Initiative efforts will be among topics discussed Aug. 10 at the Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Commission’s public meeting at Cheney State Park.
Waves of humid June heat can be seen rolling over the blacktop parking lot out the window as Pat and Tammi Pierce sit side-by-side in a cool booth at Panera Bread.
A shared drink perspires between the two of them, a beet-red shade of lipstick around the rim of the straw, as they discuss the past, and look forward to the future.
For years, Pat Pierce was responsible for getting letters to the right place while working for the U.S. Postal Service.
Now, as a retiree, he’s just looking for the right place to find fish.
