Featured Outdoor Bloggers of the Week ~ 1/31

This weeks first Featured Outdoor Blog comes to us from the Conservation and Ecology category ~Skunk in the WoodpileConservation … Uncensored



This blog is penned by three different people. We have Vince Palone, Roxane Palone and Bob Frye serving up excellent conservation topics/issues in the PA area.


All three have backgrounds that lend a hand to conservation perspectives we can all learn from. One of the contributors- Roxanne Palone – served 8-1/2 years as a Board Member and President of the PA Game Commission which gives terrific insight to the issues surrounding the PA Sportsman.

If you have any interest in the conservation issues in PA, or would like to fuel up some ideas for the area you live in, we suggest you keep this blog on your radar. They’re not afraid to tackle any issue that needs tackling!


Siempre Verde

Our second featured Outdoor Blogger of the week comes out of the Outdoor Photography category ~ Siempre Verde Venezuela ~ We use photography to further environmental conservation

Siempre Verde Venzuela–translation–Evergreen Venezuela Organization ~  is a Photography and conservation blog from Venezuela.

We wanted to highlight one of our growing number of International members, one that is not written in English.  Using the Google translator is easy (and there is a translate button on their site) and effective, and brings all of us non-Spanish speaking or reading folks up close to a beautiful blog from our friends in the southern hemisphere.

The world truly is a smaller place when the common bond of a love of the outdoors can be shared across the oceans and in different languages, with all of us able to appreciate each others works. The photography is beautiful and the view into another world is priceless. Enjoy this well done blog!


Angling Addict

Our final featured Outdoor Blog comes out of the Kayak Fishing Category: Angling Addict ~ Kayak fishing in the James River and Chesapeake Bay of Virginia

RobChoi pens the Angling Addict and it’s a terrific , well written and photographed blog about the amazing kayak fishery in the lower James River / Chesapeake Bay area.  I’ve been stunned seeing some of the fish these guys bring to hand from a kayak. To see what I’m talking about, check out his blog post, titled, “Eelin; for the Bigguns. Wow!

He tells great stories, his pictures of his daughter are priceless and overall, it’s a great blog to follow from a fish-rich area of the country.

    Nice going everyone. I want to elaborate on Rob’s blog for a second. Rob Choi is a great person, father, friend and angler. His blogs are great and he is able to convey the energy of his personality into a well written article. He is a fishing freak! Keep up the good work!

    Hi, my name is Alan and I am also an Angling Addict and I admit I am powerless over my addiction…..”Hi Alan”
    Rob is a fellow junkie and I can attest to the fact that he is far more hooked then myself. I swear I saw him with a pack of “Fishorette” last week but that might be to appease the better half. Rob has a great persona and is a blast to fish with. I just pray he don’t quit any time soon. Keep it up brother!

    Rebecca and Joe,
    We are both humbled and honored that you would choose our blog as one of the “blogs of the week.” We have tried to improve it over the months by following some of your suggestions at your site. We try to keep it as a true blog, rather than a website. Keep up your great work. We appreciate your efforts and those of your readers. Vince, Roxane and Bob
