Otis-Bison Boys vs Russell at the Hoisington Winter Jam

The Otis-Bison Cougars took on the Russell Broncos in a consolation game in the 2011 Hoisington Winter Jam.

The game was very even throughout with the Broncos able to respond to most of the Cougar leads during the game.

In the end three sets of late free-throws by Trevor Keller gave the Cougars a 2 point victory.

Here are some pics from the game:

Quivira NWR December 30th

I went out to Quivira National Wildlife Refuge the morning of December 30, 2010.  My main hope that day was to see some Bald Eagles, which I did, but I also saw some other birds.

Here are my pics from that morning:

Larned Keady Classic 2010: Boys BB-Macksville vs Hoisington

I stayed in Larned for a third game between the Macksville Mustangs and the Hoisington Cardinals.  On paper it looked like a good game to watch and it delivered.

Macksville has some good height and size on their team and it kept them in the game for almost all of it.  Hoisington pulled away in the final minutes of the game for a hard fought win.

Here are some pictures from the game:

A few weeks back I was driving to Otis in the waning evening light.  I stopped on Otis Road south of Otis, Kansas and saw a deer walking towards me.
