Alaska Science Forum: Red-backed voles climb into scientific literature
A few years ago, Link Olson wanted students in his mammalogy class to see one of the neatest little creatures in Alaska, the northern flying squirrel. He baited a few live traps with peanut butter rolled in oats and placed them in spruce trees. When he returned the next day, he found no flying squirrels. Instead, peering back at him were the beady eyes of the mice of the north, red-backed voles. The curator of mam...

I have been since I was 9 years old when my dad handed down to me the .22-caliber bolt-action rifle and single-shot, 20-gauge breech-load shotgun his father gave him around the same age. Honestly, my dad probably should have saved one for my little brother, but like first names for firstborn sons in my family, I think primogeniture was a thing for him — I ...

(9/21/90-7/25/15) The picture you chose was me washing a window!? In this day of Photoshop you couldn’t get a photo of me riding a brown bear while lassoing a lion all while pulling in a 100,000-pound fish set ... Go big or go home people. Well crap, it appears I’ve made the part of the paper we are all trying to avoid. Man, I did not see that coming. Who would have thought? I guess we all have it coming sooner or...
