We put sacks of decoys on sleds and walked in on the ice.  We found a spot where we could put up a blind and placed the decoys right out on the ice.   Shop Under Armour + Free Shipping on $75+     I tell this to some of my friends today and they can hardly believe it, but it happened.  There seemed to be a few ducks that hung out at the reserve and probably got their w...

How to Hunt Like a Gentleman

New book by Hank Huntington is now available...get yours today! Price decrease. Get yours today; click on the picture.     We see bison meat in some grocery stores priced at about nine dollars per pound or more.  Is it cheaper to hunt one or just buy the meat in the store?  From a personal experience if all you want is the meat, go and buy it in the store.  It tastes just as good, and it is a whole lot safer than a hunt on the plains where they roam.  But it is not nearly as exciting. I have hunted buffalo and if you buy my book, it tells you all about it and how to do it.  I ha... (more)

Three days of Walleye, Day 1

    For the last two weeks, I studied weather patterns in eastern South Dakota waiting for the right time to head north to Webster, SD and pound the lakes there for walleye and whatever else was swimming by our lures.  The windy conditions just kept prevailing and would follow with storms and torrential rains.  None of this is good for fishing.  There is one thing a person fishing the glacial lakes can depend on; the wind will always be blowing.  The velocity and the direction are the next two variables.   Gift Cards     My wife, Pam, and I found a three day window where it...

The Bear Is Back in Town

    Last year in September a trip was made to hunt black bear with my favorite outfitter, Bob Barlow, owner of Barlow Outfitters.  Bob operates on the western side of the Tetons just south of Yellowstone.  You can see the back side of the Grand Tetons rising high above you as you make your way into the mountains. The back side of the Grand Tetons.  Right below sits Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  The scenery cannot get more spectacular.             One of the best things I like about hunting with Bob is Bob himself.  I just had a really great time and  have never found a person...

Here Come the Smallmouth Bass

  The Missouri River flood of 2011 totally shut down my fishing plans for the spring and summer.  The Corp of Engineers announced they would be dropping the river starting August 1st. This was good news and the best part was there were no levee breaches in and around Council Bluffs.   Seep water was dealt with, and if you look on the front page of the website there is an excellent picture of some of the work done.  It appears it is slowly coming to an end.  The people doing the work and those in charge have done an outstanding job of protecting the community and surrounding are...
