A fixture of Oregon coastal farming, so-called “tide gates,” are coming under new scrutiny because of their environmental effects. Essentially hinged metal doors at the ends of culverts, tide gates have been used for centuries to prevent flooding and help drain low-lying coastal lands, making it possible for people to farm and build on land that would otherwise be under water. But in many cases the devices have also compromised or destroyed critical fish and ... [full story]

When snow conditions aren’t the best up in the mountains and you still want to get outdoors for some fresh air and exercise, Smith Rock State Park offers year round hiking. The big bird soared like a hang-glider along the rock face, at times its wings seemed to touch the cliff itself. With a wingspan of up to seven feet across, the golden eagle is one of the largest birds of prey in North America. ... [full story]

With snow now falling in Central Oregon, hungry birds will start coming to your feeders. Besides the fun of feeding birds, it’s also entertaining to watch their behavior. The mountain chickadee (Parus gambeli) is one of the most common birds in Oregon and a fun bird to watch. When I head out to the backyard to fill the feeders, these fearless little black and white birds are never too far away.   Mountain chickadee - All photos by Scott ... [full story]

To some anglers, electronics -- the type you'll find at the console and on the bow of any modern fishing boat -- can be a little confusing. Why? Because of the misnomer that is attached to them: "fish finders." I, like most everyone else, have heard this expression a million times and it still seems funny to me. If they found fish, like the term suggests, then why aren't we all catching our limits of ... [full story]

Most of today’s outdoor writing somehow doesn’t seem as colorful and descriptive as those of decades or even centuries past. Typical hunting stories of the modern 21st century read something like this: “Me and Joe goes huntin’ and we gits our deers.” I can’t help but wonder what it would be like if one of my past hunts could be written up in prose such as that used by the early 19th century Lewis and ...

Five elk were shot during the deer season that Madison ... [full story]

Although I prefer being outdoors, I don’t mind being spoiled indoors once in a while. When I head over to the eastern and northeastern parts of the state for some exploring, I usually stop off in Baker City. As I’ve found out over the years, the town itself can be the destination.   Geiser Grand Hotel, All Photos by Scott Staats Two places worth a stop are the Geiser Grand Hotel and the National Historic Oregon Trail ...
