Bowfishing: Give it a try

Thursday, Jun, 27 2013

Shooting carp with a bow ? you bet. I have been having so much fun shooting fish off my dock every night the past few weeks. It doesn't' t take much to get started. Take that old bow or pick one up at a rummage sale ad for about $100 you are ready to go. AMS and Muzzy are my products of choice. Plus here is the positive your are helping the environment, because carp are an invasive species and they make great fertilizer. Just make sure it is legal to where you plan to shoot, some municipalities have restrictions. Now go shoot some fish !

The Crappie fishing is awesome !!!!!!

Thursday, Jun, 13 2013

Greetings outdoor enthusiasts,

Now that summer is finally here and turkey hunting is now over I have been putting plenty of time in on the dock. I have been catching walleyes, perch, gills, bullheads, bass and of course the ugly and smelly sheep head. But I have to say the crappie fishing has been more than fun. It seems every night just before dark schools of fish move into the shallows. I have been using a Chartreuse Cubby mini-mite tied 3 feet under a small round bobber. The key is to reel slow and stop periodically. Pink and white works but not as well as the chart. Many fish are being caught off points scattered throughout the west shore. Get your lawn chair, your bucket and a cold beverage and enjoy.

Turkey Update

Monday, Apr, 29 2013

I spent 3 days last week in the turkey blind. It seemed that the Gobblers were pretty HENNED up. What I mean by that is they roost with the hens, they feed with the hens and they follow them all day long. The challenge this presents is trying to call them in. They just won't leave their flock of hens. Since I was hunting with a bow I had to try to get them to come to me. I focused on calling to the hens in hoping that a Gobblre would be in tow, which doesn't always happen. I feel that the weather has delayed the nesting by a couple weeks. Due to snow still on the ground the hens don't seem to want to build a nest. The next couple of weeks could be very productive as the hens leave the Gobblers to lay their eggs. This leaves them lonesome and easier to call in. I plan to get out over the next couple of weeks to get a shot at a Gobbler.

Is Spring ever going to get here

Saturday, Apr, 13 2013

Well it's April 13 and winter is still wielding it's ugly head. As for turkey hunting the birds are still flocked up and searching for food. I have seen several birds that were harvested this last week and they are skinny. The birds are reacting to the call but having a decoy that you can give some movement to is a key. Maybe you hook up a string and give the decoy a pull just to move it a little. There is still plenty of snow where I hunt in Iola I hope I can get to my spot. I haven't even set out my blind yet oh well. I wish you all good luck if you head out to turkey hunt next week I will be out to check it out.

Turkey season just around the corner

Friday, Mar, 15 2013

Turkey season 2012 is just a few weeks away. With winter still hanging on it could make for an interesting first couple of weeks. The turkeys are bunched up and looking for food. Try to get out and scout where the turkeys are feeding. As the weather gets better old picked over cornfields will fill with birds I suggest you try to get out and sight in you turkey gun. You don't want to wait until the season starts. Make sure you have all your required licenses and tags as well. I can't wait for the warmer weather to get here.
