Tom Pink: Hunting turkeys, but thinking about questions surrounding Michigan moose and whitetails

It’s time to hunt turkeys, but a number of recent news stories and opinion pieces in Michigan Outdoor News have me thinking about hunting bigger things.
Michigan United Conservation Clubs passed a resolution at its annual meeting to encourage the state to hold a limited moose hunt, something I think may be a good idea, if the resource can support it. Meanwhile, Michigan resident Jim Moran wrote an editorial about whether it’s time for Michigan deer hunters to “earn a buck” by shooting a doe first.

When winter is scarce, outdoors enthusiasts have to grab what they can, when they can

In spite of the nation’s annual quest for Punxsutawney Phil’s expertise, I’ve never been one to rely on a groundhog to tell me how much winter we have left.

Technological advances sweeping through the fishing industry aren’t for everyone

It’s been very interesting reading articles in Michigan Outdoor News and other publications regarding forward-facing or live sonar, a technology that detects fish that are in front of and around, not just under, your boat.
Those who follow tournament fishing, including the tournament anglers themselves, are wondering if expanded use of this new technology will put too much pressure on the resource. I’ve been wondering the same thing myself, and it’s good to see the concern.

Doubling up on turkeys in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

In all of the years I’ve been turkey hunting, it’s almost always been with a partner and we’ve almost always both carried shotguns, but we’ve rarely figured that each of us would be walking out of the woods with a turkey taken on the same hunt.
We talked about the possibility, sure, but as turkey hunters know, it’s quite difficult to line things up so you’re both pulling the trigger on different birds simultaneously. But this year, for the first time, we doubled up on turkeys.
