Food plots are planted for staffer Tyler Wurthman. Just in time for some rain!
If you have not gotten your food plots in, there is still time! After all this rain, the ground is perfect! Come in and get the best seed around from Whitetail Food Plots USA! This is hands down, the best seed out there, in our opinions!
Another dry spell and heat wave has passed with rain yesterday and last night. The rain will help many food plots already in, although many have suffered badly over the last month. Staffer Ken Oliver's new plot location is hanging in there and is definitely going to be an interesting addition for years to come.
Went out frog hunting for the first time last night. Started around 7:00 pm with the guns. Then when it got dark we took the guns back to the truck and started using the frog gigs. What a blast minus the billions of mosquitoes. The amount of frogs was crazy! Ended up with a few to deep fry today for a snack. Definitely will be going again
I have a word of the day. Dumbfounded! I have been fishing Lake Erie for the last 15 + years And we can all agree walleye fishing out of buffalo last year was fantastic. What I have seen or better yet not seen on my screen these last two times I have been out on Lake Erie have left me dumbfounded. Not a single mark of a fish suspended. Went out yesterday with the hopes of it being a great day. One of those days where Mother Nature does all the work. You just have to endure the ride out. Well not so covered from 55 to 35 ft and ended up with two Walters about 18-20 inches “great eaters” and a few sheepshead. Not complaining a day on the water is never a waste. You never know what you will see out there. For instance this about 5 ft lake sturgeon bobbing on the surface for some time now. West bound here on out
It may be heating up outside but it was a perfect morning to be out enjoying the sunshine. Shooting the 450 Bushmaster in the Ruger American Go Wild platform and The 308 in The Remington 783 walnut. If you have not tried the Fort Scott munitions, you are missing out! Crazy accurate!
[07/01/20] 3.9 Million backgrounds checks for firearms in the past month alone! Cant imagine what it would be if stores could actually get all the guns that people are asking for!!! We are doing our best to keep our shelves stocked so lets keep it going!!
Curtis and Paul are out on carp duty for the first run this year. Good Start!
Do you have real hunting buddies??!!
Overall, it was a beautiful day out on the lake. Caught 8 Walleye, 8 sheephead, 1 good smallie, 3 perch and.... of course 3 gobies. Cant have a day without those little buggers. Kept 5 walleye and the 3 perch. Brian was working hard trying to find fish and stay away from the crowd out finishing the south towns tourney. Was quite a day! Curtis may or may not have gotten a little too much sun....Paul Kuss, Brian
Brian, Curtis and Paul are saying goodbye to Buffalo on the hunt for a limit of walleye.
In between fishing we built a shooting bench to dial in the boom sticks! How is everyone else passing the time before the upcoming season?!
After spending 5 hrs in a car dealership yesterday. I was finally able to get out today. On the water by 6am. Picked up 9 and a bonus perch. Not too bad for the first time out this year. 40-35 feet of water 1.5mph. Tried out my custom painted blades I painted over the winter and the perch color and candy blue were the 2 hot colors ￼
Team Natures Prize out making it happen tonight!
Getting our fishing bait with all this rain!
There’s something about fishing that gets everyone excited!
Step 1. Go Hunt✓ Step 2. Kill a Turkey✓ Step 3. Season✓ Step 4. Sshhhmoke Turkey✓ From the woods to the smoker✓ Mission complete✓ For some of us, social distancing is'nt too hard. #nomeatshortageinthewoods #supportsmallbusiness #HuntForYourFood #meatandpotatoes
Can't win it if you're not in it! Happy Mothers Day to all the hunting and not hunting mommas out there!
I spy with my little eye....
From field to table! What’s everyone’s favorite way to cook Turkey? I’ve found that removing the skin and adding bacon with a dry rub in the smoker is the perfect combination .
A successful hunt is a good hunt! There’s definitely a lot of people out in the woods. Good luck to everyone
Is everyone all sighted in and ready for Friday? We could use some excitement in the woods.
Pro Staffer Ken Oliver recently came across this little back scratcher today, making it his 7th shed find of the year.
Pro Staffer Ken Oliver recently caught up with his 6th shed of the season, logging 3 more miles.
Hope everybody is having a good time out there. It is definitely crowded in most of the more common spots. That was to be expected tho. Staffer Brian Wilkinson and his Daughter where able to catch a good amount. Here are the pics of the 2 better ones.
[03/31/20] Hello outdoorsmen and woman. I hope everybody is healthy and well. On the eve of opening day of inland trout I just wanted to wish everybody a great day of fishing. The weather is suppose to be on the ok side and with hardly anybody working these days it maybe a little crowded. Be kind,courteous￼ and be safe. Get out there and enjoy it!
Congratulations to Pro Staffer Ken Oliver! Ken entered photos of his 8-point crossbow buck and 11-point gun buck from this past deer season in The New York Outdoor News "14th Annual Best Buck Photo Contest 2019" Ken's crossbow buck photo earned him 6th Prize.
Who’s got spring fever ?
Nothing like a good catch and release video
Good day to be on the ice!
