9/11: We Remember

Mon, 09/11/2017 - 18:01

On this day 16 years ago, our nation was attacked by cowards. In the wake of that terrible day, we banded together like never before and stood tall as we went to war with a shadowy enemy.

That war is still far from over, and in the process of waging it we’ve given up some things we shouldn’t have. But one day we’ll get back all we’ve lost, and more. Until then, though, we remember the fallen and fight on.

Watch: Quick DIY PVC Bow Without Heat or Power Tools

Fri, 08/11/2017 - 11:48

This video gets right down to it, showing us one way to make a good, useful bow using PVC, some fiberglass rods, and some paracord — without any heat or power tools.

It’s super simple, and clearly works well. He uses fiberglass “driveway markers” slipped into the 3/4″ PVC to give it more strength and spring.

He says its draw weight is about 35 pounds.

After about the halfway point, he starts to wander and there’s nothing else about this bow build… so it really is a quick little video. Check it out.

Idaho may allow bounty & baiting wolves for hunting,

Fri, 07/28/2017 - 18:36

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has proposed putting bounties on problem wolves and allowing hunters to lure wolves with bait.

This comes from the state’s Wolf Depredation Control Board, as it addresses increasing problems with wolves killing livestock and big game.

“The use of sportsmen who pay for the opportunity to hunt or trap is traditionally our best method of managing wildlife populations,” Idaho Fish and Game Director Virgil Morris said.

Idaho Wildlife Services killed 75 wolves in 2015. There were 35 cattle and 125 sheep killings that year.

Hunters collected 139 wolves in 2016. Trappers got another 131. Bear hunters who use bait are allowed to shoot wolves if they also hold a wolf license.

Giant Tripletail Caught In Georgia, Setting New State Woman’s Record

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 00:22

In the saltwater fishing world, the strange but fun to catch tripletail is a coveted catch, and a new Georgia state record for the species has just been set in the woman’s division with a massive 29-pound, 6-ounce giant.

Caught by Jordan Davis of Brunswick on June 3, 2017, the fish was caught in St. Andrews Sound aboard the Sea Quest with Capt. John Davis at the helm.

Davis’ tripletail surpassed the 22-pound, 7-ounce fish for the Georgia woman’s record, held since 1994 by Joan Thigpen.

Tripletail offer light-tackle anglers exciting sight fishing in clear, reasonably shallow water just offshore Georgia beaches. They fight hard, and are delicious table fare.

Photo: Hauling Elk Home in a Car Trunk

Wed, 11/16/2016 - 17:01

Well, that’s one way to do it.

I have an uncle who has never owned a pickup truck, although he was an avid hunter of deer and other big game for decades.

He has hauled big game on and in station wagons, a Suburban (rarely), a Chevy Citation, a small Saturn sedan, and various other cars. And in every case, he managed to do it an, um, cleaner manner than this.

But hey, whatever does the job, right? The worst I can say about this photo is that it makes me a tad jealous, since my only elk hunt didn’t work out well for me.

What do you think? Sound off with a comment below.

Watch: Glock Fishing for Lionfish

Wed, 11/16/2016 - 17:01

This is cool. But turn off the sound before you play the video.

Using a pistol to slay fish is pretty awesome. And slaying lionfish–an edible invasive species that multiplies quickly, devours native fish, and has few if any natural predators–is always a great idea.

This video demonstrates the effectiveness of using a handgun with an adapter to kill these fish, which are then gathered up, taken home, and eaten.

Lead-free ammo is used, and the hunters/fishermen lure the fish away from reefs so their bullets don’t damage the coral.

Very nice.

Team Bowfishing for Sting Rays

Tue, 10/18/2016 - 08:42

By Bob McNally

Bowfishing in saltwater is a fun and target-rich environment, and sting rays are one of the most popular fish that can be taken in the Sunshine State.

Rays are not easy to hit with an arrow, and they are good table fare, too, tasting a bit like scallops once they’ve been skinned, cut into portions, and fried.

Here’s a short video on the wild fun archers have chasing sting rays in clear water.

Night Lights Shine for Autumn Fish

Tue, 09/20/2016 - 17:19

Autumn baitfish and on the move, massing and preparing for winter. Gamefish populations in saltwater and freshwater are taking advantage of the “push” of bait. But it’s still hot and warm in much of America, and this makes for some unusually good night fishing around lights that shine down into the water.

Lights around docks, bridges, marinas, even roadways near water all can be superb places where gamefish concentrate and waylay baitfish schools.

Here’s a video showing how schools of sportfish can hover around lights, offering anglers some of the best fishing of the year.
