Hunting the Rut     Oh the things we see during the rut. After watching these bucks clash during a North Dakota bird hunt in late October, Ellis snapped this shot of the victor looking for more as the half-rack headed for the hills. We believe the antler was lost in the fight. If you’re a bow hunter, you look forward to these precious but fleeting days of November, and late October, like no other. As a writer, I’ve alw...

    Well it looks like we are off to an early start on winter. What a crazy year. We went from winter to summer, then right back to winter. We had a very short fall if any really, and basically no spring this year whatsoever.  But now with the 2018 gun deer season only about a week away I know many hunters like myself are happy to see the snow on ...

    November 5, 2018 Steve Suman   Look for this week to bring rain, snow, and dropping temperatures into the weekend. This could continue for another week, but then see a slight warming trend (though “warming” might be misleading). The long-range prediction for this winter is warmer and drier than average, but apparently it does no...

    This week’s report is going to be short but sweet. The Big Musky bite has really heated up with several giants caught this past week. I had Jeff Widman and Steve Genson out, along with Andy Veitch for a couple of days of filming for Team Rhino Outdoors and we landed some giants. Steve had the largest one which was easily pushing the 40 pound...

    October 29, 2018 Steve Suman   This week’s forecast shows highs in the low to mid-40s and lows in mid-20s to lower 30s, and calls for mostly sunny days and mostly cloudy nights, which is much better than vice-versa! Remember to turn back your clocks for the end of Daylight Saving time that “officially” ends at 2 a.m. this ...

    With the lousy weather we’ve had this past week, fishing has been difficult.  The most consistent bite for me has been the deep water bluegills.               As the water cools a few more degrees, the bite will switch from nightcrawlers and leaf worms to fat head minnows a...

    This past week, it was hard to find time to get out on the lake with strong winds and an enormous amount of rain.  With the cooler weather, the lake temperature is cooling rapidly and the walleyes are starting to bite.                 Walleye pike are off the main lake...
