We awoke early and headed into Webster to grab some breakfast at Pereboms Restaurant. The plan for the day was to fish till noon on Pickerel lake. This is a beautiful lake and one of the original glacial lakes. Clear deep water makes this body of water a real sleeper.
We woke early the next morning to a major disappointment. The wind was not blowing, it was close to howling. The direction was right where the forecast said, but it was way stronger. Our plan was to go to Bitter Lake south of Waubay, but with this wind and my lack of knowledge of th...
The spring snow goose migration has arrived in southern Iowa. If you’ve not yet seen the spectacle for yourself, it’s a trip worth taking. Simply stated, it is a bird show without equal.
The weather snapped cold with driving winds from the north and a cold front moving south rapidly out of the Dakotas. It was time for the birds to come south riding the north wind ahead of and with the frontal passage.
Last year around this time I was on the hunt of a lifetime. Chasing the Barren Ground Caribou in the northern most reaches of Northern Manitoba was a dream that finally came true. After filling my limit of two boo (that is what the locals call them) it was time to go fishing. The wea...
We arrived in Punta Arenas, the capital city of Patagonia, in the early morning and said good bye to the ship and the crew of the Australis. We had lunch in Punta Arenas and a quick tour of this port city in Chile. It was founded in 1854 by colonizer Vicente Perez Rosales as a lake s...
Duck hunting started off with an outstanding teal season for the club north of Tekamah, Nebraska where I hunt. This was followed by a really successful small duck shoot that ran all the way up to the 2nd week of October. That is the good news. The bad news for me was my wife and I w...
Yesterday a really nice big hen was harvested. After the flock was busted, trying to pick off another one as they came back together did not work out. In these woods it seldom does, but it is always worth a try. Returning to the haunt from yesterday did not produce any action. Stil...
The Glacial Lakes of South Dakota produce some of the midwests finest walleye fishing. Take I- 29 north out of Council Bluffs, IA or Omaha, NE to exit 207 and go west about 25 miles to the town of Webster South Dakota, and you are in the middle of about thirty different lakes to fish....
The goal was to fish for walleyes and what a surprise. The smallmouth bass were on the hunt and feeding heavily. They are warriors and a hoot to catch. The Missouri River flood of 2011 totally shut down my fishing plans for the spring and summer. The Corp of Engineers announced the...
Next week it is turkey time. Based on the volume of birds seen along the highways, this should be an outstanding harvest. It is amazing. You can drive down the highway, and they will be right along the side of the road, pecking and scratching the ground for seeds. Out in the woods or a...
It is over. As fast as it started, the snow goose migration only lasts two to three weeks. You have to get it done right away when they come through. I checked the waterfowl survey at Squaw Creek Refuge near Mound City, MO, and they are now down to two thousand snow geese. Ten days...
The weather broke into really nice days for snow geese. Southerly winds, warm early spring temperatures, and clear skies prevailed. The lake was totally open and additional floater decoys were in the water. This would make the difference when the flight resumed.
Wow, what a day! I got to the blind around 9:30 on Friday morning. The snow geese were flying north in enormous flocks riding on a strong south wind. Our spread looked good, but we had a major problem with the setup. The lake was still frozen over and the pump was not operating. T...
