Dr. Kellogg authors article on joys of hunting

Dr. Richard Kellogg, professor emeritus of psychology at Alfred State, is the author of an article appearing in the most recent issue of New York State Conservationist, a bi-monthly journal published by the Department of Environmental Conservation.

Kellogg's contribution is a personal memoir titled “Mossberg Memories,” in which he describes the joy of hunting experiences shared with his brother for more than half a century. He notes that Allegany County is a sporting paradise for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, boating, hunting, and fishing.

The author concludes that hunting is much more than the stalking and taking of wild animals. He notes that the sport is also about the meaning of family, of relationships, and love.

Kellogg frequently writes about the genre of mystery fiction. He is the creator of a popular series of children's books featuring boy detective Barry Baskerville. His most recent book, “Barry Baskerville's Marvelous Memory,” is available on the Amazon website.
