Trip to Devils Lake shows why North Dakota water is so highly regarded among anglers

I recently spent three days on an outdoor media trip to Devils Lake, N.D. My tie to this trip was through Johnnie Candle, a pro walleye angler, Devils Lake fishing guide and outdoor educator.
Back in February of 2020, the Iowa Great Lakes Fishing Club (IGLFC) held its annual spring fishing seminar in Everly, Iowa. That night, Candle spoke about developing a “a winning game plan.” This past March he emailed me and asked if I would be interested in being part of an outdoor media trip to Devils Lake in May. The answer? Yes!

With expansive tracts of fields, forests and meadows, high host population densities and strong participation in outdoor recreation, there’s no wonder Pennsylvanians have a fair risk of encountering the villain at the root of the problem — the black-legged tick.

Mark Nale: Pennsylvania game commissioners got it right on doe license allocations

At their April 2023 meeting, the Board of Game Commissioners made the right move toward better scientific management of Pennsylvania’s deer herd. They shocked some hunters by not interfering with the antlerless license allocations put forth by Game Commission biologists.
Past practice was for commissioners to field “there-are-no-deer” complaints from hunters and then to ask for reduced allocations for wildlife management units within their district. This brought hunters into the equation, but it wasn’t good for wildlife management. Have you ever met a deer hunter who said that there were too many deer?
