Springstead wins Preseason Glory Days Classic Tourney

The 2019-2020 is expected to be a big breakout year for Springstead’s boys basketball team and if the results in preseason action mean anything, the Eagles should be a club to keep an eye on. 

Springstead hosted the Glory Days Preseason Classic tournament and were able to run the table and eventually defeated Hudson Fivay 69-42 in the tournament’s title game last week. The Eagles now head into the regular season with confidence as one of the area’s top teams coming out of Hernando County.

Public Land Pointers

I know that there are a lot of you, who like myself don’t have the deep pockets for private lease fees or outfitters in order to hunt.  Instead, we're left to hunt the public Wildlife Management Areas, which while offering some great opportunities, they do see a lot of pressure and offer unique challenges.  Now, I’ve been hunting and taking my share of game out of the public WMA system for well over thirty years, so I decided to share some pointers. I really hope that these tips can help you battle the crowds and skittish deer, while setting you on the path to success.

The battle stopped at Riverside.
