Great winter hunting opportunities lend themselves to a delicious dish at the dinner table

By Mike Yurk

With the conclusion of Thanksgiving weekend, deer hunting season ended and for most people hunting was over for the year as I was growing up. Duck hunting had closed some time around the middle of November. Yes, pheasant hunting still continued, stretching through December, but the chances of finding a pheasant so late in the season was fairly remote in those days. As everyone was cleaning guns for the last time and putting them away, I was getting ready for some of my favorite hunting. Continue Reading

By Kyle Sorensen

The brisk morning air hits my face as I make my way down to the dock, a freshly brewed cup of coffee in one hand, and a sandwich for a late morning snack in the other. I reach the dock to see the daylight slowly beginning to fill the sky. Continue Reading

High Country Elk

For Your Next Out of State Adventure!

“Hang on a second and let me do a cow call before we clear the trees,” I suggested as the four of us neared the large park we agreed to check before we broke off into pairs for the days hunt.  The call had no sooner than left the tube when the first bull sounded off less than 200 yards away!  Continue Reading

Adopt a Wildlife Area

Adopt a Wildlife Area

By: Mike Alaimo

DIY Musky Box

DIY Kayak Musky Box

 
 
 
 

Musky anglers know all about the expense that comes with the addictive sport and how quickly tackle boxes fill up. Bringing multiple boxes that are filled with lures is not an issue while in a boat.

Building your own musky box will also save you a ton of money. To build your own musky tackle box, big or small, follow the steps below.

This piece is aimed at the 30 – 50 year old age group. I say that up front as I know as soon as I put forth my opening line, most in that group will assume there is nothing here for them and go on to the next page; but if you are in that slot, there may be some food for thought in my words for you. If I can dislodge just one soul from the rut of the seemingly endless days/months/years of monotonous middle life before them, then I would be happy. The gist of much of this piece can be found in the often repeated saying of an older, ner-do-well, nasty, scoundrel friend of mine who mentored me as a very young man in all of the things that my parents had previously protected me from; “do as I say, not as I have done.” Continue Reading
