Weekly fishing tip

Catch Bluegills, Don't Feed Them

Every experienced angler knows that bluegills are bait thieves, especially when they're not what you're fishing for. If you're fishing for bluegills and you're using worms then you will need to present the bait right on the hook to prevent theft. You don't want to just thread the worm onto the hook, this will prevent the worm's ability to move about and attract bluegills. Instead place the worm on the hook in a pleated manner, this will allow the worm to attract bluegills and provide easy access to the hook.

Weekly Hunting Tip


An animal that drops at the shot is more likely to run off than one that doesn't go down but runs some distance and then falls. The animal that falls immediately might do so from shock, then recover and run. When an animal drops instantly, stay put and be prepared for a quick follow-up shot

Involve the young hunter in planning and preparation

It's human nature to try and "do it all" for the young hunter, and just let them experience the fun of the hunt itself. But it's important to involve them in the hunt's preparations - making lists, going on shopping trips, helping make catalog orders, packing, scouting, opening camp and other activities that are part of the adventure.
