"I was young and eager, and I tended to measure the success of a day's hunting by the heft of my game pocket. I learned how to hit flying grouse the old-fashioned way — by shooting often and relying on the law of averages..."

DO IT: Beat the darkness

Now that daylight saving time has ended, it's easy to feel a bit cloistered by the darkness. Here's a simple thing that can brighten your winter walks: A headlamp. Headlamps have come a long way. Many feature LED bulbs and rechargeable lithium batteries. Check your local outdoor shop to find them. Enjoy your nighttime winter walking.
