What's Outdoors

With Doug Collicutt

The "What's Outdoors" column was published in the Winnipeg Free Press from October 29, 2000 to September 16, 2001. Yikes, that was a while ago! If you think the Winnipeg Free Press, the Winnipeg Sun or any other local publications ought to be publishing more stuff about nature in Manitoba, other than how to hook it or shoot it, then let them know. I'd love to start writing stuff like this again. Anyone interested? Drop me an Email at:
