What’s better is when it’s a place you can ride. Jug Mountain Ranch trails open this weekend, and it’s starting its shuttle service on Saturday, May 16. Shuttles are $20 for four hours and operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Saturday morning, I met the folks from Idaho Fish and Game for the first trip of the year for the Free Fishing Trailer. It travels to ponds throughout the Treasure Valley and is filled with free loaner fishing gear. It’s fun to see folks using it, even on a chilly, wet Saturday morning. You can read more about the trailer and its spring schedule in the April 23 Idaho Outdoors.

I consider myself a competent and proficient shooter. I can take a rifle, work up a decent handload and usually punch a tight cluster of holes into a bullseye at 100 yards.
