Capt. Doug Scheible, better known as the skipper of the headboat Bay King out of Scheible's Fishing Center at Ridge, has turned to a different kind of shooting preserve business to tide him over the winter.Scheible and his son Dale, a charterboat captain out of the family's fishing center, operate Triple-D Ranch of 10,500 acres 20 miles east of Sarasota, Fla. Wild boar are the big drawing card, but there is also shooting for quail, rabbits, doves, deer and wild turkeys.The deer are smaller than our whitetails, but have nice antlers, said Scheible, who reported a 12-pointer was checked in yesterday.

ASPERMONT, Texas -- On a moonless October night, a burly man in overalls turned off the engine of his mud-caked white Toyota truck. Yelps from coyotes and an owl's hoot occasionally broke the West Texas silence. Then, from an open field, Bob Richardson heard the noise he had been awaiting. Four of his short-haired scent hounds, which had been released earlier, began to bark from the darkness. Richardson jumped out of the truck and freed a black pit bull from a cage on the truck's flatbed.

It took almost two years for the Ellicott Mills Brewing Company to open, and a few months longer for the beer to finish brewing.Four German-style varieties are ready now, and the easiest way to try them all is to order a beer sampler. Our waiter, full of fermentation facts, delivered four very small beer mugs holding a few ounces each of the black Alpenhof Dunkel, the amber Alpenhof Maerzen, the golden Alpenhof Pils and the pale Alpenhof Hell.The dark lager Dunkel was our favorite, but all were remarkably good for such an early showing.

An imposing antique forms a backdrop behind the reception desk at the Boar's Head Inn in Charlottesville, Va. The bottom portion contains shallow drawers, while the top half displays several rows of cubbyholes that once functioned as hotel mailboxes. Thick brass discs, each bearing the carved likeness of a wild boar, dangle from cup hooks at the tops of the cubbyholes. The golden ornaments form long, neat lines that gleam in the overhead light. When I ask the receptionist if I can take a closer look, she hands me a hefty fob attached to a brass key, and the heavy, glittering disc covers my entire palm.

LATELY I have been shopping around for a new "fragrance," which is a hip thing for a man to do these days.This new fragrance should say something about my personality. It should be bold. It should be distinctive. On the other hand, it should not be too bold or too distinctive, as I am by nature a shy person and would be mortified to stand out in a room because of my scent.Right now, I'm leaning toward Eternity For Men by Calvin Klein, a fragrance that appeals to me for the most basic of all reasons: Apparently the stuff drives women wild.

Remember Something Fishy -- a couple of blocks up from the harbor, and west of Broadway Market in Fells Point? When it closed, Something Fishy's building stood dark for nine months. Then Foster's Oyster Bar, Restaurant and Market turned the lights and the heat back on, and put a fire in the fireplace and pans back on the stoves. The oyster bar and restaurant have been in business since November. Foster's fish market opened last February.Both the bar and restaurant are pleasant, clean, attractive and imbued with the spirit of Fells Point.

PIANU DE JOS, Romania -- Holding a 7-iron on a pretty hilltop in a remote part of Transylvania, Paul Tomita takes a couple of easy practice swings.Eighty yards away stands a rippling flag. Fifty yards away stand some grazing sheep. "They're here to cut the grass," explains Tomita. "And to provide the fertilizer."Golf in Romania may sound a bit like polo in Rwanda. Even Tomita, a stout 84-year-old Romanian, with a white mustache and a black pipe stuck in his mouth, acknowledges the incongruity.

Last week we asked you to name all the animals that helped build the winter house in "A House Is Not a Home." Samantha Colvin, David Alan Snyder and Henry William Glanding III (all from Villa Cresta Elementary School) identify those industrious wild things as: deer, hares, fox, (wild) boar, hedgehog and badger.

It's easy being green Many animals use camouflage to hide from predators. The green tree python hides in the forest by blending in with the leaves. What's for dinner Snakes eat insects, reptiles, fish, eggs, birds, and rodents. Some snakes can eat animals as large as a wild boar or a deer. Green tree pythons eat birds and lizards in the wild. Only eight inches long and red or yellow when they hatch, green tree pythons shed their skin as they grow to reveal bright green skin. The snakes will grow to six feet long, coiling around tree branches in New Guinea and Northeast Australia where they live.

Food **1/2 (2 1/2 stars) Service *** (3 stars) Atmosphere **** (4 stars) The best way to approach Cinghiale in Harbor East is as a wine bar. A very ritzy wine bar, to be sure. But wine is where its strengths lie; and while the food certainly isn't an afterthought, it almost feels as if it's there to support the wine, not the other way around. At best, they are equal partners. By now does anyone interested in restaurants in Baltimore not know that Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf have opened what they call an enoteca (Italian wine bar)
