Safest Gun Deer Hunt In State History THE TRADITIONAL nine-day gun deer hunt in November produced more than 211,000 whitetails and was the safest on record, with three non-fatal shooting injuries reported. Combined with the bow, crossbow and all other gun deer hunts, the blaze orange and camo army topped 300,000 deer taken for the 25th straight year. Despite a two percent drop in deer hunting licenses sold, the gun kill was up over 2017. And, for the second straight year, crossbow users killed more deer than vertical bow hunters. The farmland zones saw the biggest increases in harvest. Marathon, Shawano and Waupaca counties led the state. Snapshot Wisconsin Looking For Hosts A CITIZEN science project, Snapshot Wisconsin, is seeking more landowners across the state to host trail cameras. Through late last year,…

the spin doctors

SPINNING GEAR lets anglers fish small baits on light lines to entice big bites when bulky offerings fail. Today’s spinning reels have evolved exponentially over their predecessors. An overabundance of bearings and a plethora of advanced materials render modern spinners lightweight while turning with an icy smoothness. Innovations in spool designs have alleviated many of the past line twist ills, while drags rival those of top-shelf baitcasters. Likewise, contemporary spinning rods benefit from decades of material advancements Their blanks are engineered supramolecularly. Resins and carbon fibers are amalgamated on a nanotechnology level These spin rods flick baits with surgical precision and deliver shocking sensitivity. The Game & Fish gear test team brawled with the largest redfish in North America armed only with the latest bass gear. Here s what we discovered after…

GAME & FISH EDITOR'S CHOICE DAIWA TATULA THE TATULA has been a mainstay of the Daiwa spinning lineup for years. Recent refinements to the baseline have made quantum improvements to the reel. A high-strain, high-density carbon composite chassis anchors the platform, which is light and stiff. Seven strategically placed bearings keep tolerances tight and the Tatula turning with a buttery consistency. The art nouveau inspired crank and paddle grip are as comfortable a grab as you’ll find on a spinner. A bit of tackiness is added to the paddle for a secure grip in wet weather and when fished with sweaty paws. We found the micro-indexed drag let us dial-up just the right amount of resistance, and that helped us put more ill-tempered fish in the boat. The air rotor, a signature of…

“please, no more exposed threads!”

WHY IS IT that a few rod manufacturers insist on subjecting us bass fishermen to exposed reel seat threads? These threads seem to be the only thing you feel while working a bait. During the test, there were several great rods, whose only downfall was the exposed threads. Most rod manufacturers have solved this problem, with creative foregrips that cover the threads. For those manufacturers who haven’t, we implore you — “please, no more exposed threads!” Along those same lines, hook holders are great, however, manufacturers need to spend some time considering where to place them on the rod. An ill-placed hook keeper can be distracting when placed where your fingers or hand are in constant contact with it. Plus, sometimes when you cast, a poorly placed hook-keep can snag the line mid-cast.…

should i spin?

SPINNING GEAR has become very popular recently with the advent of the bass “finesse game.” When the bite turns cold, these little baits are great for catching lock-jawed bass, however, they are a nightmare to throw on conventional baitcasting gear. Spinning gear on the other hand, with its large, open spool design and limber rods, allows the use of lighter line weights. These, in combination, allow long and accurate casting of small baits. Spinning gear also excels for managing finesse baits with an elevated amount of control. The ability to swap the reel handle from one side to the other offers fishermen the ability to fish baits with their dominant hand. This translates into more control and the ability to work lures with exacting precision. It’s this precision that spinning gear offers,…
