New book by Hank Huntington is now available...get yours today! Last fall we had friends tell us about fishing Johnson Reservoir at Lexington, Nebraska.  Since it is only a 3 hour drive from Council Bluffs, IA we decided to give it a try.  The state of Nebraska in the early spring had put out a list of the top Walleye lakes and this was one of the closest ones to us.  The really good ones were way out in the pan handle of western Nebraska.   Bass Pro Shops Gold Series 34''- 67'' Telescoping Handle Landing Nets   I use this net with good success.  It is really deep and they don't jump out.  Buy today from Bass Pro by clicking on the picture or the link above. The weather had been horrible in the spring and fishing would not have been very good.  Cold temps with lots of rain and wind in the central part of Nebraska would not make it worthwhile to make the trip.  ...

Hiroshima/Miyajima Island

New book by Hank Huntington is now available...get yours today!   We were down to our last two days of the adventure to tour Japan and visit all the highlights. The city of Hiroshima was our next to our last stop in Japan. We spent two days exploring this reconstructed "City of Peace." Situated on the Ota River delta and close to Hiroshima Bay, Hiroshima has been an importing trading center and strategic military point since the late 16th century.  The Japanese military recognized the city's prime location and set up a logistics base that would last until 1945 - when our militar...

Hunting the Grocery Store in Iowa

New book by Hank Huntington is now available...get yours today!     After great success at the Nebraska location, it was time to move to the Iowa location just a ten minute drive from my home.  This farm has it all.  Water to the west, woods and pasture in the center, corn to the south and more wood to the east.  This is turkey heaven, and 90% of the time there was great luck either for a tom or a big jake.  Meat is meat, and I will take whatever is available.  After all, wild game is the perfect food.   The first stop for the morning was a location south of the pasture and woo...

The Deer Are in the Corn (Part 2)

There is one section of the farm north of Fort Calhoun I have never hunted.  As described in previous postings, this farm sits on top of a series of hills that rise steeply from the valley to the west.  The valley area is where the deer are hanging out.  These deer came up out of the river bottoms as the Missouri River flood water rose.  Here they are finding some very good dining.  Good for them, but not for the landowner.  He rotates his crops and this spring planted corn instead of beans.  Corn is around seven dollars a bushel and the deer have  big appetites. They like the c... (more)

Mallard City

  It is mallard city, almost.  The next day after the big weather push, members in the club hit the blinds again ready for a big shoot.  They were not disappointed.  The mallards were coming, but what was interesting, the birds were very young.  The traditional green head did not have a mature green head, but only partial and this is the sign of a young bird. Still the boys had a great shoot and bagged seventeen mallards by 10 AM.  And now the rest of the day's story.  My friend John and his dog were out in the lake picking up a cripple and here they came.  I was not there, but ...
