How Bowfishing Works

ADVENTURE.HOW STUFF WORKS.COM  From the Archives – How do archers or bow hunters extend the hunting season? How might they improve their archery skills? Take to the water! The technique of hunting fish with a bow and arrow is called bowfishing or archery fishing. Bowfishing combines the thrill of hunting with the skill of archery and the sport of fishing. Although the term “bowfishing” may be new to you, the idea…

What Is Bowfishing?

THE FISHERIES BLOG.COM  From the Archives – It’s not really fishing in the traditional sense.  It’s not really bowhunting either.  Bowfishing is somewhere in-between and the basic principle is quite simple. You spot a fish lurking in the shallows, carefully move in closer, draw back your specially equipped bow and arrow, take aim, then let it fly.  If your aim is true and your barb-tipped arrow hits the mark, you…

MT – Hunting – Prolific turkey populations spread hunting opportunities across Montana

Turkey Hunting Tactics For The Bowhunter

MISSION ARCHERY.COM From the Archives – Hardcore bowhunters looking for a challenging hunt will be pleased with a spring turkey hunt.  Harvesting a longbeard with a bow can be difficult.  In fact, the odds of tagging a tom with a bow in the spring woods is about the same as tagging an elk in the fall out West – a low 10%!  In some states, the odds are a…

The Best Setup for Bowhunting Turkeys

REALTREE.COM From the Archives – “How should I set up for bowhunting turkeys?” This is a question I’m asked. Here are my thoughts: I generally shun short bows whether they’re compound or traditional. But when the subject turns to turkeys I lighten up on that conviction. This is directly related to how turkeys are bowhunted. You’re either operating from inside a pop-up (most popular today) or sitting flat on your…

Declining Gun Sales Could Be Bad News for Conservation Funding

SIERRA CLUB.ORG  April 12, 2018 – In the weeks since the horrific Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida, conversations about gun control have dominated much of the national discourse. But here’s something you might have missed: Four days before the March for Our Lives, the federal government distributed $1.1 billion in tax dollars extracted from gun sales to state agencies.

WV – Hunting – Turkey hunting is stupid … But there is no way I’m going to stop

REGISTER-HERALD.COM  April 8, 2018 – I’m a pretty honest guy. I mean, I have a lot of shortcomings, but for the most part, I’m honest (unless you want to ask me about a new hunting spot I found or how many fish I caught on a certain day). I bring this up to say while I have been an unrepentant, dyed-in-the-wool, somewhat-obsessed turkey hunter for much of my life,…

AK – Hunting – As crossbows get more popular, Alaska requires specialized training for hunters

FAIRBANKS DAILY NEWS-MINER April 6, 2018 – With its stock, trigger and sights, the modern hunting crossbow looks something like a rifle. But pull the trigger and the release of the arrow comes with a gentle kick and a sound that’s more like a bow than a gun. But they’ve become common enough that Alaska’s Board of Game has asked the state to develop a training class for them. Starting July…

AK – Hunting/Wildlife – Wildlife projects helped by gun owners: Pittman-Robertson Act has paved the way for conservation

FAIRBANKS DAILY NEWS-MINER April 5, 2018 – Last month, the Department of the Interior announced Alaska will receive up to $33 million from this excise tax. It’s Alaska hunting licenses that generate the money for Alaska’s 25 percent state funding match to receive these funds. In years past, it has been difficult for the state to generate enough hunting license revenue to match and receive the entire Pittman-Robertson grant.   

Tips for Springtime Hunting Opportunities Outside the Turkey Blind

SPORTSMAN CHANNEL.COM From the Archives – Years ago I got invited to hunt axis deer in Texas. I turned it down simply because I just assumed it was a high-fence hunt, which doesn’t interest me. The company that invited me offered up an explanation of what the hunt was all about and soon realized I could hunt a new species (for me) of free-range deer, and they would be…

The Five Best Places to See Wildlife in Wyoming

HOPPER.COM From the Archives – In a state where the backcountry habitats range from low lying wetlands and thick fir forests, to alpine ridges and sprawling verdant valleys, it’s perhaps not surprising that even the highways are regarded as great wildlife-viewing spots. Wyoming is, after all, the land of the great Yellowstone National Park; the gateway to the wilds of the classic American West, and home to some of…

Turkey Hunting is Stupid – The Full Story

EMPTY-CASES.COM From the Archives – Turkey hunting is stupid. I know, some of you have already picked up rocks to throw my way; you may have even loaded your Mossberg 500 with three-inch magnums and jumped in your truck to drive to West Virginia. But wait; let me explain. You get up before the crow has taken his morning leak. Then, you drive for miles out into the country. Just as…
