WILD facts:Georgia's Wildcats

Have you ever heard a piercing scream at night in the woods? Perhaps that sound was from a bobcat rather than your rowdy neighbor.

Bass Pro Shop plans kids’ days

SAVANNAH - Once upon a time, not so long ago, kids went outside to play. Many a fort and treehouse were built, favorite swimming holes were enjoyed, and stringers of fish meant campfires and fish fries. Kids got bumped, scraped, bruised, stung, bit and sunburned.

It was the real world.

WILD facts: Hooked on bream

The group of freshwater fish called bream includes species such as bluegill, redbreast sunfish and redear sunfish. Compared to other sportfish, bream are fairly easy to catch. All you need is a basic rod and reel with monofilament line, a bobber to hold the bait off the bottom and signal bites, and a small hook. Live worms and crickets make good bait and are available at most convenience stores near lakes and rivers.
