  • Get Yourself More Hunting Land in Five Easy Steps, Aug 18, 2014

    Be sure to make the fact that you appreciate the opportunity to hunt on someone else's land well-known to the landowner. Image by Scott Roduner.

    It’s coming up on that time of year again---when we spend more time in a treestand than we do at a desk (or at least wish that we did). I don’t know about you, but last year was not that great for me when it came to deer hunting. I had deer around, but they just didn’t ever seem to cooperate. Don’t they want to just hop right in the freezer? This year I’ve decided to expand my hunting opportunities by securing some new hunting land. There’s a few ways to go about doing this, and I’ve got my work cut out for me. Do you want to gain access to more hunting land, too? Sure you do!...

  • Hunting Michigan’s Seven Wetland Wonders, Aug 11, 2014

    Some of Michigan’s Managed Waterfowl Hunting Areas are best suited to goose hunts, while others favor ducks of many species. However, all can be found at each unit. Image by Derrek Sigler.

    To waterfowl hunters, there are some historic destinations that fill dreams and top bucket lists. While it's well-known for excellent deer hunting and amazing fishing, Michigan is also home to some amazing waterfowl hunting action. What’s better still are the outstanding Managed Waterfowl Hunt Areas that make up the Great Lake State's Seven Wetland Wonders. Unlike deer hunting, some of the best action hunters can find for waterfowl is on public land. Establishing in the 1960s and early 1970s, the Managed Waterfowl Hunt Areas offer a diverse array of hunting opportunities and...

  • Mastering Michigan’s Late Summer Salmon, Aug 04, 2014

    Charter captain Jay Frolenko says this time of year is the best time to catch big Michigan salmon.

    If you’ve ever gone down to the shore of Michigan’s Great Lakes anywhere near the river mouths, you’ve no doubt seen lines of boats endlessly trolling back and forth. As summer wears on, those lines of boats, made up of charters and personal boats, get closer and closer to shore. The boats are moving closer to shore because salmon are doing the same thing. One thing is for sure---if you want to catch a big Great Lakes salmon, now is the time! The fish are preparing to head up rivers and streams on the annual migration. Each fall, salmon by the thousands (having spent several years...

  • Take Advantage of Michigan’s Outstanding Grouse Hunting, Jul 29, 2014

    Michigan’s grouse season attracts nonresident hunters, like Pheasants Forever’s Anthony Hauck of Minnesota and his trusty bird dog, Sprig. Image courtesy Anthony Hauck.

    Michigan’s great outdoors are home to many outstanding hunting opportunities. The state's ruffed grouse get scores of resident and nonresident hunters afield each fall, and with good reason. Hunting Great Lakes grouse can be one of the best ways to spend a fall day. You don’t need a ton of gear---yourself, a trusty shotgun, a pocketful of shells, some hunter’s orange, and perhaps a good dog will do. A grouse hunt is never a waste of time, even when you don't bag any of the tasty birds. Grouse can elusive, but if you simply open your ears, it's often quite easy to find...

  • 2015 Can-Am Outlander L 500 DPS, Jul 28, 2014

    The 2015 Can-Am Outlander L 500 DPS is an all-new machine aimed at the budget-conscious buyer. It has some pretty impressive features for the price.

    It’s no secret that I like ATVs, and testing them out is a lot of fun. I grew up riding machines from "another brand," but I’ve been very interested in Can-Ams for quite a while now. There are quality machines coming from Canada-based Bombardier Recreational Products (of which Can-Am is a subsidiary), a large and far-reaching company that makes everything from snowmobiles to boats and more. Their personal watercraft line, Sea-Doo, recently took the market by storm with a feature-packed budget machine called the Spark. Can-Am has their own budget-friendly, entry-level machine in the...
