The time that hunters have been waiting on for six long months – or perhaps since the end of last deer season – is upon us.
Sept. 1 is the traditional kickoff of hunting season in the Buckeye State and this year is no different. Hunters may hunt doves and squirrels come Sept. 1 with dove hunting being a most popular pursuit among Buckeye wingshooters. The end of September, Sept. 30 to be exact, is when Ohio bowhunters may first go afield in search of deer.
A campaign to educate the public on the importance of hunting and fishing for wildlife management is making significant progress, with messaging shifting this year to focus more on the benefits of outdoor experiences.
Officials with the Michigan Wildlife Council recently provided an update on the campaign to the Natural Resources Commission, highlighting the progress since the group was formed by legislation in 2013 and plans for 2023.
While many outdoors-minded folks switch from fishing to hunting as fall arrives, there is a compelling reason to not winterize the boat quite yet. As the longer, cooler nights start to lower the water temperature in Minnesota’s rivers and lakes, bass begin to school up and feed.
Compared with many of summer’s fishing opportunities, this is the best time to get out and target good numbers of bass, and quality fish, to boot. Both largemouths and smallmouths will get in on this feeding frenzy, and one of the most exciting ways to catch them is on topwater lures.
