Why it might be best to wait a bit for early-ice panfish

Deer season is nearly behind most of us, and thoughts of ice fishing get the blood flowing.
You know the days: just a few inches of clear, black ice with sunfish twirling below and to the sides of the hole as we extract them from hungry schools off the edges of standing green weedbeds. It’s typically the shortest part of the season, with 3 to 4 inches of safe, walkable ice. And it’s the first and last trip most ice anglers will see with these conditions.

Latest survey reveals record 347 North Dakota bighorn sheep in state’s western grasslands

Two of the most popular species with hunting seasons in North Dakota include harvest numbers you can count on your hands or hands and toes. I’m talking about mountain lions and bighorn sheep.
These two unique species capture the interest of hunters and non-hunters alike. While over 20,000 applications were received for the half dozen bighorn sheep tags, mountain lion hunting is open to individuals with a furbearer tag but limited to one per season.
The Game and Fish Department’s bighorn sheep survey, completed by recounting lambs, revealed a record 347 bighorn sheep in the grasslands of western North Dakota.

Opening day of Ohio deer season was a boom for many gun hunters

While a lot of hunters – more than 19,000 of them – bagged their bucks and does on Ohio’s firearms deer-hunting opener Nov. 27, bunches more did not.
And though Ohio Outdoor News has a stable of gifted writers who know which end is up on a deer-hunting firearm, they weren’t so fortunate. Among them were Steve Pollick, Tom Cross, Larry Moore, and John Hageman. All were in the field on Monday past. But none were successful, at least on the opener.
