Country Sports

The Rabid Pursuits of a Redneck Environmentalist

Essays of Game, Fish, and the Rural Life.
In its relatively short history, M.H. Salmon’s weekly Country Sports has won the Best Column award from the New Mexico Press Association, the New Mexico Press Women’s Association, and the New Mexico Associated Press (twice). It is said he inspires many readers; others just get mad. A predictable result perhaps, when a writer fly fishes for wild trout one day, sets doughballs for carp the next; blasts ORVs and defends rattlesnake roundups; takes a stand for the Mexican wolf while hitting the enviros for ignoring population growth in our own USA; joins the elite gunning doves with an Italian double, then runs with the hounds hip by jowl as they take down a wild boar by tooth, nail, and a jackknife. As a homesteader, he’ll help you make a crop during drought, live off the land with goats, and he reveals that Abe Lincoln was perhaps our original American proponent of sustainable agriculture. Many believe that the old rural ways are passing. Read Country Sports to know that their revival is well underway, not so much a link to the past as a good plan for the future.
