The 2016 Honda Pioneer 1000 is simply amazing

There are those brands that are synonymous with quality. You probably have a few of them in your gun cabinet, and probably one in the driveway, too. When it comes to power sports vehicles, Honda is the oldest name in the business. After all, they did invent the ATV. With much of the market for all-terrain vehicles dominated by side-by-sides, it was only a matter of time before Honda made the leap with a vehicle they felt would make an impact and get a lot of attention.

The 2016 Can Am Defender goes on the offensive

The side-by-side market is getting pretty crowded these days, with manufacturers looking for new ways to scrape out a share. For outdoors men and women, the utility/recreation area is prime real estate. These are the machines that are designed for work first and some play. We want something that can put in food plots, haul stands and do chores around the property, and then have a good time scouting and maybe doing a little exploring during the off season. Can Am worked hard to develop a machine that fits into this area, and with the 2016 Defender, they knocked it out of the park. Continue reading

  • Michigan Fishing Report – June 7th, Jun 07, 2012 It’s here! Michigan’s annual summer Free Fishing Weekend will be observed this Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10. Both residents and non-residents can fish without a license however all regulations still apply. This is a great opportunity for novice anglers to introduce someone new whether young or old to the sport of fishing and the opportunities that Michigan has to offer. SOUTHEAST LOWER PENINSULA Lake Erie:  Fishing was slow as the water was muddy. Before all the wind, limits of walleye were caught from Ohio waters and a few limits here in Michigan waters. Most boats were heading straight out from Sterling State Park and Stony Point and fishing in 25 feet of water. Perch were caught out of the River Raisin Channel in 18 feet of water. If the water is muddy, try body baits with rattles. Good colors were pink, purple or antifreeze. Huron River:  Is still producing a few leftover white bass but most anglers are catching large and smallmouth bass on golden shiners. Detroit River:  Yellow perch have been caught off Gibraltar by those using perch rigs with shiner minnows. Those fishing the Horse Island Flats reported a few limit catches of walleye. Largemouth bass were caught in the shallows and canals by those casting spinner baits. A few pike have also been caught. Lake St. Clair:  Continues to have very good smallmouth bass fishing. Some musky have also been caught. No word on perch but catch rates should start picking up with the fish moving into the deeper waters along the...
