Free Fishing in Michigan This Weekend

Just got an email from the DNR announcing free fishing for everyone this week in the great state of Michigan.

Get out there and enjoy it.

Just a reminder that all Michigan residents and non-residents can fish without a license this Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9. Please note all other fishing regulations still apply.

Saturday and Sunday make up the Summer Free Fishing Weekend, an annual effort to promote Michigan’s numerous fishing opportunities. While many individuals and families will head out to fish for free on their own, there are also numerous organized events scheduled throughout the state to celebrate the weekend as well.

Turkey Time in Michigan

It’s that time of year again. Time to get in the woods and watch the world wake up to the sound of thundering turkeys.

Seems like the bird count is way down this year but I hopped behind the camera this morning and filmed this monster hitting the ground. Always a blast when you can call em in and film at the same time.

Good luck to everyone out Turkey hunting!

It’s Almost Time

Oh boy! We have a dusting of snow on the ground, the rut is in full swing and the orange army is mobilizing.

Thursday kicks off the most celebrated holiday in Michigan…whitetail gun season. That crazy day when all of us bowhunters will be joined in the woods by 500,000 gun hunters.

I’ll be spending the morning in the stand and then meeting up with Nick Viau from Life and Longbows to prep for Deertour 2012.

It’s gonna be a blast.

Good luck to everyone heading out this week for the gun opener. Be safe and be sure o your target and what is behind.

The Rut is On

Well it’s that time of the year again! When the crisp mornings and crunching leaves bring out monster bucks chasing, fighting, grunting and dying.

We’ve been seeing rut activity heating up and the big boys are starting to chase. The next two weeks should be rockin and rolling here in Michigan. Good luck to everyone out there chasing the rut!

See you in the woods!

Well it looks like the whitetail activity is warming up. Quite a few scrapes and rubs in the woods on our way into the stand tonight. The next few weeks should be killer.

Good luck everyone.

Well deer season is rockin and rolling here in michigan. We finally got a good frost last week which should take care of the EHD problem. I’ve been hearing of some nice bucks being taken around the state and was lucky to smoke one myself last Sunday.

Good luck to all my fellow hunters out there.

Be Safe and Shoot straight.
