Final touches are being put on the track at Melody Ranch today in preparation for the Skijoring event hosted by the Jackson Hole Shriners Saturday and Sunday.  The event is among the culminating events for Jackson Hole’s Third Annual WinterFest, and money raised will help benefit the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.  Shrine President Rod Everett says the event is fast-moving and exciting.  He says it is not like the cutter races with Calcutta betting are placed between each racer because there is not enough time.  Organizers say they hope to have 15 teams registered in each of their three events.  Everett says, “On phone calls alone before today, I’ve had at least 25 horses and teams that have called and indicated they’re coming.”   He says they won’t know exactly how many will be in the race until registration takes place Friday night at the Elks Club.  This marks the first time in about a decade that Skijoring has been an event in Jackson Hole.  Races begin at 12:30 pm both days.

    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
