    October means a lot of things to Michigan outdoor enthusiasts. There are the glorious colors of the leaves as they turn from green to various shades of red, yellow, orange, and brown before falling to the forest floor. There are tremendous fishing opportunities as salmon make their final push. Streams, rivers, and lakes come alive with fish grasping for one last feast before the winds of autumn bring the freeze of winter. For the deer hunter, however, it is the first opportunity to chase the elusive whitetail. Michigan’s archery season is a great opportunity to harvest a deer and this year...

  • Inside Bohning Archery: One of the Biggest Names in Bowhunting, Oct 22, 2014

    The Bohning Company has been part of the Lake City, Michigan community since forming in 1946. As it has grown, it has stayed tucked back into the woods and true to its traditions.

    To truly be innovative, you look at a need and devise a way to fill that need through a path that hasn't been taken before. In modern archery's infancy, bowhunters and shooters were left to their own devices to construct and maintain their own equipment. Rollin Bohning, a research chemist by trade and a serious bowhunting enthusiast, wasn't happy with the available materials used to bond broadheads to arrow shafts. His solution was to develop a new cement for that exact purpose and in 1946, the Bohning Company was formed. When I sat down...

  • Hunting Michigan’s Mighty Squirrels, Oct 13, 2014

    It doesn’t take a lot of expensive gear for a family to enjoy an afternoon squirrel hunt in the Michigan woods.

    Many hunters remember their first deer or turkey fondly, but few recall their first squirrel. For many sportsmen and women, the very first game animal they chased in the autumn woods was a squirrel (now that you’re thinking about it, I’m betting you can remember those tall hardwoods, with leaves full of bursting colors, and the bark of a distant squirrel). Michigan has ample squirrel hunting opportunities for those of us looking to make new memories this fall. Finding squirrels Let’s face it, it’s not too hard to find decent squirrel hunting habitat in Michigan. With hundreds of...

  • Duck, Duck, Goose: Waterfowl Hunting Options Abound in Michigan, Sep 26, 2014

    Ponds and lakes full of huntable birds await sportsmen who come to Michigan seeking waterfowl.

    When you think of waterfowl hunting meccas, places like Stuttgart, North Platte, Eastern Shore, and the Dakotas get thrown around. Sure, those places have a rich tradition of amazing waterfowl hunting, but what do they have that Michigan doesn’t? The answer is simple---nothing! In fact, there are not many places that can stack up to the Great Lake State when it comes to waterfowl hunting. Looking for puddle ducks? Got ‘em! Want the ultimate diver duck hunt? No sweat! Want the skies to turn black with migrating Canada geese? Here you go! Oh, and did I mention sea ducks? Good luck finding...

    The HuntStand Lite app lets you create an interactive overlay of your property using several different tools.

    I really enjoy incorporating technological advancements with outdoor pursuits like hunting. I frequently try to "disconnect," but I keep getting pulled back in. One such tech tool that I’ve been enjoying is the new HuntStand Lite app for smartphones and tablets from the folks at TerraStride. What’s in the box? The app uses GPS data, along with sophisticated mapping programs, weather data, and satellite images to create an interactive overlay of your property. I’ve seen programs that let you use those...
