Squirrel Season Extended DATES FOR squirrel hunting in our state are now exactly the same as for rabbit hunting. The season began on September 15, and the last day of hunting is March 31. Prior to this year, squirrel season ended on March 1. This gives you roughly two more months to hit the woods and get after bushytails. Fox and gray squirrels are both fair game — as are these species in black color phases, often referred to as black squirrels. 16 Years Of Illegal Deer Hunting THREE MEMBERS of a Michigan family were found guilty of deer hunting illegally on a private farm in Iowa for 16 years. Douglas Leo Hebert, 49, from Indian River, his 51-year-old brother Jeffrey Leo Hebert of Bay City and their 73-year-old father, Leo Frederick Hebert,…

4 new multi-species fishing machines

STARCRAFT RENEGADE 178 DC LENGTH 18 FT. 5 IN. BEAM 92 IN. DRY WEIGHT 1,176 LBS. FUEL CAPACITY 26 GAL. MAX HORSEPOWER 150 MSRP $20,521 WHILE MOST anglers love the idea of having a top-of-the-line tournament boat, the reality is that most of us can do without the top-of-the-line price tag that usually goes along with it. Starcraft certainly got that message when the company unveiled its Renegade 178 DC, a well-designed multi-species fishing boat that puts the best features of its high-end tournament boats into a package that’s both attractive and affordable. They really didn’t scrimp, either. With its .100 gauge bottom and hefty .080 gauge sides, the Renegade is built for serious fishing, and it can run from ice-out to freeze-up thanks to the protection of its dual consoles and a full walk-through windshield. Even with…

MY ALL-TIME favorite waterfowl gun is now more than 40 years old. The Browning BPS is as relevant to the waterfowl market today as it was when it was released in the late 1970s. These shotguns are extremely durable and reliable thanks to a solid steel receiver and twin steel action bars, and the enclosed receiver prevents gunk and debris from jamming the action in the blind. That steel receiver makes the BPS a bit heavier than competing shotguns, but that’s not always a bad thing — extra weight makes the BPS a smooth-swinging scattergun and the added heft reduces recoil for fast follow-up shots. The bottom-feeding design and tang safety make this gun equally suited for both right- and left-handed shooters, and there’s even a 10-gauge model available if…

features to consider

ACTION Semi-autos offer the ability to fire three shots with three successive trigger pulls, and gas guns will help reduce felt recoil. Pumps require more effort on follow-up shots, but pumps have a reputation for dead-nuts reliability and once you’re familiar with it you can cycle a pump very fast. Double guns aren’t as versatile as semi-autos and pumps, but they’re a great option, and affordable waterfowl models include CZ’s sleek Swamp Magnum. PRICE For many hunters, the list of potential duck guns is limited based on budget. Pump shotguns are, in most cases, less expensive than semi-autos or double guns because they’re simpler to build. You can purchase a new camo-clad pump repeater like Winchester’s SXP, Remington’s 870 or a Mossberg 500 for around $500, and those three guns have…

early hardwater : proven tactics to put more fish on ice

FIRST ICE is prime time to target fish of all stripes — including walleyes, panfish, pike and trout. The first magical weeks of hardwater offer some of winter’s best fishing, often in surprisingly shallow water, before deepening snow, thickening ice and falling oxygen levels drive fish deep and dampen spirits in the underwater world. On the walleye front, veteran guide and Fish ED television host Jon Thelen says early ice is as good as it gets. “Walleyes are still in feeding mode from fall, gathered in easy-to-find spots and active at predictable times. What more could you ask?” Shallow structure and cover are where it’s at. Thelen likes rock piles, reefs, weedlines, points and bottom transitions in 10 feet of water or less. “Avoid areas with heavy fishing pressure,” he cautions. “The…
