inside our gear issue

todd.kuhn@outdoorsg.com ADMITTEDLY, wE love our gear — we simply can’t get enough. In fact, few, if any, among us have ever confessed to having too much camo, too many crankbaits or turkey calls. Yes, we are “gear heads.” We gather (those close to us call it “hoarding”) gear because you just never know when it’ll come in handy. Outdoor gear has come a long way of late. Advancements in engineering, material science and manufacturing has spawned products few could have imagined a decade or two ago. For instance, innovations in carbon nanotechnology and polymer science have led to rods and reels which cast to dizzying distances with remarkable precision. Advances in lasers and light emitting diodes led to the rise of the rangefinder — arguably the most significant advancement in hunting in decades.…

Western Basin Waters “Impaired” THE OHIO EPA has declared the waters of Lake Erie’s Western Basin as “impaired” under the Clean Water Act in their recent Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report to the US Environmental Protection Agency. The process allows local communities, states and the nation to identify unhealthy waters so that actions can be taken to improve them. The determination follows several years of harmful algal blooms that typically peak in August and September in the Western Basin waters of Lake Erie. For more information visit greatlakes.org.

bagging warm weather bucks

SURE, IT might be a cliché, but if you’re a whitetail deer hunter, the good old days are, without question, right now. With a national estimated population of between 25 and 28 million animals, it’s no wonder that some 10 million licensed hunters head afield every fall, each one in search of what is undeniably North America’s greatest and most popular game animal. In much the same way as the population has changed, whitetail hunting gear and methodologies are radically different now in the 21st century: from high-tech scent elimination devices to cutting edge ammunition, and from state-of-the-art centerfire rifles to camouflage designed to bend light and make the wearer virtually invisible. Still, and as any veteran whitetail hunter will tell you, fancy gadgets and shiny doo-dads don’t put 190-inch bucks…

Location is a key factor to be considered when determining function and settings. If the camera is at a feeder, it’s probably not necessary that the camera fire every five seconds (when triggered). However, that option might be desirable, especially if a big buck walks by just once. Have specific objectives in mind when setting out cameras. Consider setting up cameras at pinch points, along clear-cut pathways, and even position them along a mock scrape to entice deer to come to examine the area.…
