There's a well known syndrome among men and women who write about fishing and other outdoor topics called the "writer's curse."  It's very similar to the vacation curse, especially a fishing vacation, when the first words out of your guide's mouth is, "You should have been here last week."
Quite often when a writer shows up to get a story about fishing, hunting, trapping or any other topic, Lady Luck takes a vacation. We'll see if that happens today.

Good friend and fellow outdoor writer, Tom Berg will be coming along with me on my coyote trapline later today. There's no "planned" story, such as we might be doing if going to a lake to catch bass on surface lures or hunt ducks over decoys. We'll just see what develops. He will be helping me with photos for 2 upcoming stories for Trapper and Predator Caller magazine, the first about trapping out of a cross-over SUV (aka the Chevy Equinox in the blog below).  The other a story about being stuck, keeping from getting stuck and what to do when you are stuck. Hopefully, there won't be any "unposed" photos involved - especially with the Equinox.

So will the writer's curse be in the backseat with us today or Lady Luck?  Check back for the outcome!
