A hunting trip can involve a lot of miles walked and a lot of hard work to be successful. Splitting the workload with a partner can be a big benefit, but that also means you have to split up the best hunting spots.
I am somewhat of a loner—I have taken more than 20 bowhunting road trips and on the majority of them, I’ve gone it alone. I partnered up with my buddy Ron on three occasions, twice to North Dakota and once to Missouri. I have found there are pros and cons to both scenarios. Let’s take a look at both sides of the equation and hopefully help you make an informed decision on your next trip.
Many people like to have someone to share the highs and lows of hunting with them. It can be nice have someone lay a high-five on you when you put a good buck on the ground after days of working at...
Indiana's problem bear may be headed home for winter.
Wildlife officials believe that the only wild bear in Indiana may have returned to its home state, and this time for good. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR)Â originally reported in June that a young male black bear wandered across the state line from Michigan and moved into St. Joseph County. It quickly caused a stir as the first confirmed bear sighting in the state since 1871.
âWith black bears in some surrounding states, we were expecting a bear to show up eventually,â Mitch Marcus, Wildlife Section chief for the DNR...
Well the summer of 2015 has been an interesting one - if I recall properly we have had the wettest summer on record. In the spring I tilled my annual plots. I tilled under my brassica, AWP, cereal grain plots and planted my corn with my row planter. Well as we all know once the rain started Indiana entered into monsoon season for nearly 2 months. My property generally drains pretty well, but I just couldn't get the ground to dry out enough to be able to get into my plot. I couldn't apply the urea and I couldn't spray either. Well if I know anything about corn it's that without N and without weed control your sunk! Well guess what? My corn looks pathetic. I don't think much of it at all will actually even produce grain. That's a real shot to my foodplot program and hunting. So those are the lemons.
The lemonade is hopefully yet to come. The rain finally stopped to the point where I could at least spray and apply some urea to at least give the corn a chance. Some of it is too little...
The clock is TICKING, tick...tick...tick....The early archery seasons (Urban Zones) in Indiana is only 75 days out. The Regular season is about 90. How many guys are in the woods already getting things ready? The pressure is on if you hunt that way. The food plots are in and need some tending. The lanes need some trimming or trees may need removed. Our cameras are getting some early photos and we are starting our own "Hit List". The velvet on those racks are hiding the bone, but we are getting an idea of who is visiting certain spots. Some hunters leave their stands up year round and that is ok, but they need to be checked for rust, broken areas and bad straps. There is a lot of little steps that we can do now to get ready when that bruiser walks into our window in October.
Scent Control- One of the most important things that we can do as hunters, if not the most important, is eliminate our scent. Every time you head to the woods to check food plots, cameras, lanes or stands you...
