2018 Bow Deer Season

Sorry to backtrack on you, but we can pretend this is one of those memory sequences in a movie. I went out for a quick Saturday bow hunt during the rut. While I was hoping for a nice buck, it wasn’t in the cards this year. I saw a fewRead More

2018 Gun Deer Season WI

I was out for opening weekend of the 2018 Gun Deer Season. This is how it went. I had created a mock scrape near my stand using Lucky 7 Synthescents Doe-In-Heat PLUS, Buck-In-Rut MAX and Preorbital Licking Branch GEL. I like to rough up the soil with a hand rake,Read More

Bass Fishing Spring 2018

It has been a great bass fishing season so far. Both in fish caught and in reminders for why I may not be catching fish. The weather was cold and wet this spring. We had a snow storm just a couple weeks before the bass opener. What worked last yearRead More

Almost Ready for the Opener This Weekend

Bass fissing (and other game fish) opens this weekend. I mistakenly got my turkey tag for this weekend as well, probably will skip it to go fishing (it is a ton of money for turkey hunting, costs more per pound than a good Porterhouse). I worked on the boat thisRead More

It is Spring!
