  • Michigan’s Youth Hunting Programs Keep Sporting Traditions Strong, Sep 17, 2014

    When our son was three, he started going afield to goose hunt with us. Waterfowl hunting is a great way to teach kids about hunting and conservation.

Many of you have put in food plots on your hunting land already, but there are a few reasons to consider adding another at the last minute. Perhaps life got in the way of you putting one in earlier. I know that happens to me more often than I care to admit. Or maybe you have some, but have found the deer are moving in other areas and you want to make a little “honey hole.”...
