Top Stories by Hank Huntington

New book by Hank Huntington is now available...get yours today! One of the local papers had an article about Squaw National Wildlife Refuge south of Mound City, Missouri close to the Missouri River.   The article discussed the migration patterns of  Snow Geese through our area.  It is only a 1.5 hour drive south for my wife and I.   Gift Cards   Every year they go through, and now they are stopping at DeSoto Bend Wildlife Refuge just east of Blair, Nebraska. That is a 45 minute drive for us.  As they make their way up the Missouri river to their nesting grounds above the arctic circle, it is a sight to see.  The snow geese have become so plentiful that there are now no limits as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife want to thin the numbers before Mother Nature does. Electronics at Basspro.com Mother Nature is not very kind when it comes to thinning the numbers.  Hunting... (more)

Gone are the Days

New book by Hank Huntington is now available...get yours today! Click on the book and buy direct.     We are well into the season and it is now right after Thanksgiving.  When I was a mere boy and hunted with my Dad, when Thanksgiving came, it was over.  Everything was frozen and the birds had mostly left the area.   I can remember the two of us going down to a state hunting preserve southeast of Council Bluffs called Riverton.  It was along the Nishnabotna river near the small town of Riverton. We put sacks of decoys on sleds and walked in on the ice.  We found a spot where w... (more)

Disaster Strikes

  New book by Hank Huntington is now available...get yours today! Click on the picture to buy on line from Lulu.   My wife and I arrived back from our vacation to Japan mid November.  It took me just 24 hours to get my clock turned around and I was ready to hit the blinds and pound the ducks.  I found what was going on hard to believe.  The corn was out and the weather all the way up to North Dakota was mild with predominantly southerly flow.  What a disappointment.   $10 off $100+ purchase at Gander Mountain with code GMTN10!   Anyway, after keeping in close contact with my f...

Is It Really a 21 Kg Pike?

    The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, is supposed to have caught a 21 Kg. northern pike.   That would be a 46 pound fish and probably over 5 feet long.  The pike and the video below was supposed to prove it.  Unfortunately whoever made the claim, was definitely blowing smoke.  The pike looks more like a 21 pound fish, not a 21 Kg. Northern Pike. Having caught some big pike before, this one does not fill the bill.   Still it is an excellent catch, and if you watch the video below you will see that it was a really good looking catch.  What impressed me the most was how th...

It's a Bear Hunt

  So you want to go on a bear hunt.  First thing to decide is how much do you want to spend.  Second is where do you want to go, and third who is a reputable outfitter.  You will want a guide that will get you where you can at least get a shot and possibly a trophy rug for the family room.  If you are like me, you want to get the most "bang for the buck."  My recommendation is to stay in the lower 48 and not go chasing all over the continent as the bear population in many areas has boomed.  Most of these states want them thinned as they have moved into populated areas or the ...
