With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all.

    June 12, 2017 Steve Suman The current forecast, subject to change at any time, indicates a somewhat warm, wet week ahead. Best advice is to make your plans – including a “Plan B” – and keep an eye on the sky for developing storms. So far, this spring is a weather roller coaster ride! “Muskies and northern pike are s...

    Delavan Lake fishing has had some ups and downs, one day fishing is fantastic and the next it can be a struggle.  With the warmer waters, the summer time bite is almost in full effect.  As of Friday 6/2, a lot of the green slimy moss has come off the bottom and is making fishing tough.  The fish are biting but it’s hard to get ...
