A bow and arrow is one of the world’s oldest forms of hunting. Cavemen stalked ancient animals across the world, but the bow and arrow fell out of favor with hunters with the advent of more powerful guns. Today, bow hunting is returning to popularity, with many people citing it is a more natural way to hunt and others simply enjoying the new challenge of a different kind of weapon. While many of the hunting aspects are similar, using a bow is a more complex process that takes time and practice. Probably the most important thing to know about bow hunting is how to shoot. First, you’ll want to spend some quality time shooting at hay bales or other safe targets in order to get your mechanics down. Like any kind of athletic activity, bow hunting requires muscle development and muscle memory in practice so you can perform when the time comes. Consistency is key in your pull. Pull the bow apart, with steady pressure going forward and backward. Don’t worry about your aim just yet. One technique that some use is to shoot with their eyes closed so they can focus on the motion. You don’t even have to release the arrow to practice this feel. Once you have developed this muscle memory, which won’t happen overnight, you can begin to aim at targets. Many people will recommend you alternate between a target and focusing on the draw. This alternation can help you to remember to focus on that draw, as a target often focuses the mind and distracts from the essential mechanics. If you want to increase the pressure and mimic a real hunting scenario, you can get a friend or relative to antagonize you as you shoot, helping you to develop your concentration and experience the pressure of a real

shoot. If you are involving anyone, be sure that you are safe and that they never cross the line of sight of the weapon. Shooting a bow and arrow is a process that involves the whole body. Many people see the draw arm as the most important, but the support for the weapon really comes from the bow arm. Many people find it difficult to draw the bow originally, taking time to develop those muscles. It’s just as important to develop the muscles in the bow arm because that provides the primary support. Arms should be kept in parallel and straight out from the shoulder. Feet should be kept parallel to one another and perpendicular to the target, providing stability to the body. It can take a very long time to become a good shooter with a bow, but these easy steps, while not always exciting or glorious, will bring you closer to bringing down your trophy when you are out in the woods. Time and practice before will save you headache and heartache later one.

Deer hunting secrets Deer are one of the most popular kinds of game to hunt in the United States. Many men, women and families have a tradition of heading out every year in search of the big buck or the best doe for the table or the trophy room. Hunting deer is a tricky business. That’s part of the attraction for many, but it can be frustrating to venture out time and time again without any reward. That frustration can be avoided with a few simple tricks. While it’s not a comprehensive list, below are a few tips and tricks that will help you be successful on your hunt. One common mistake people make is to hunt the wrong wind. The wind will change, often during the day, so it’s essential to set up a spot that won’t blow your scent into precarious areas. Many people become attached to successful stands in the past or have only one. If the wind is blowing the wrong way, you will give notice to every animal in the area about where you are, and you’re sure to leave the stand empty-handed at the end of the day. Having several different stands will allow you to make your choice based on where the wind is heading. Watch the weather. Like humans, deer like to be out of the rain. One simple strategy is to watch the weather yourself and head out to your blind or stand, arriving about an hour before the rain ends. Deer will begin to poke their heads out and look around for food after a rainstorm. Rain also changes the dynamics of the forest, changing sight lines and covering up tracks and scents, giving you an opportunity to bring down an animal that might otherwise be aware of you. Drought conditions will push animals in different places, and being aware of where animals might be foraging based on the recent rains, or lack thereof, will give you an insight into where to set up. There is a reason that these big animals have survived so long; they are smart and on to the ways of most hunters. Leave

plenty of space between you and other members of your hunting party. An animal running from one scent might travel right into the path of another. Finally, if you want a big animal, you have to hunt where the big animals are. That may seem obvious, but a lot of people are content to hope that they are going to bag a 10 point buck when they’ve never seen one in their own local hunting area. It’s a simple fact that the largest deer live only in certain parts of the country, and you’ll have to travel to get something if you’re not fortunate to live in the area. If you have to travel, it might be a once-in-alifetime opportunity, so it’s a good idea to consider hiring a guide to give you the best possible chance of success. Deer hunting is popular, but if you want an exceptional animal, you’ll have to do everything right.

Fishing vacation?

Fishing vacations run the gamut from short weekend trips at popular lakeside resorts to extended package tours at remote sites. You can even go on a fishing trip abroad. You can plan your own fishing vacation or you can seek the help of a travel agent or a fishing guide. Before you do anything, you need to determine what type of trip you're after. Do you want to do some freshwater or saltwater fishing? Do you want to fish for trout, bass or some other species? Do you want to fly solo or fish with a group? Do you want to travel near or far? The answers to these questions should give you some idea of the vacation you are seeking and where you should start your search. If you are looking for a saltwater adventure among friends in a remote location, then you will probably want to call a travel agent and look for a package deal. As with any vacation, you will want to look for the best deals and check out the amenities offered. Find out the perks and the rates.

Reasons for recreational fishing

In-Home Set Up

Local Delivery

Removal

Whether it’s for salmon or trout, fishing can seem like a pointless, futile endeavor to an outsider. Why stand around for hours on end casting a pole into the water when you can just go to the store and buy some fish? Why take the time and energy to drive out to the lake or stream and get dirty in pursuit of something already at your supermarket? For many, fishing is their primary source of recreation, and there are many reasons why fishing is worth the time and effort it takes to be involved. Fishing is easy to get into. More and more, there are regulations surrounding the kind of bait and the quantity of fish you can catch, but if you’ve got a pole, some bait and a body of water with fish in it, you’ve got everything you need to go fishing. Most big box retailers have fishing sections that can outfit you within an hour, and there are lots of resources in print and online that can provide you with the basics you need to get started. Fishing is relaxing. By its nature, fishing requires patience and repeated activity. It requires you to sit in one place for a while. For many people who fish regularly, this is the best aspect of a fishing trip spending time without the demands of traffic, family, phone calls or work. The primary obligation when fishing is to sit down and wait, which gives many people an expanse of time difficult to find outside of the woods. Because you are outdoors for long periods of time, fishing can put you in better touch with nature. You’ll have time to notice things that you otherwise wouldn’t the birds, the trees, the way the river flows. You’ll also be locked in a battle with Mother Nature, trying to sleuth out the best spot and learning about the ways that fish move in the lake or stream. Fishing gives you time to connect with people. You can talk with your family or friends about the best fishing spots, the right kinds of gear, the best times of day or any of the other intricacies of fishing without having to worry about the contentious issues or divisive topics within your circle. Fishing can also give you quiet time away. If you lead a hectic life, there’s no reason why you can’t pick up your pole and head out on a weekend morning, leaving the worries of the world behind as you step into a serene setting. Time disconnected from the always-on world is getting harder to come by. Fishing allows you a reason to turn off your cell phone and step away from the world for a little while. There are a lot of reasons why people choose to spend their recreational time fishing - and why you might start. It’s an easy hobby that forces you to sit down, relax and take a look around you. If you’re interested, locate your nearest fishing hole and cast a line today.

Ensuring tender venison We won’t go into the details of how to clean a deer, but it might be a good idea to review the procedure in a field dressing book. There are many things that affect the final outcome of the meat, but tenderizing begins with hanging, so that’s where we will start. Once the deer is cleaned it is important to cool the meat as soon as possible. The deer may be hung with the hide on or off. However, cooking the meat becomes more difficult if the deer is hung with the hide off because the meat tends to dry out. More trimming is then necessary as edges harden. Leaving the hide on does make skinning more difficult, but it helps the meat retain moisture, ensuring juicy venison steaks. To prevent meat contamination, experts recommend cleaning the body cavity one more time with a clean cloth and solution of one-half cup salt to one gallon of water. This additional cleaning process will remove any minute stomach or bowel contents that may have been missed during a previous cleaning, thereby adding to the gamey flavor of the meat. As the meat hangs, tenderizing occurs and then temperature becomes the key element. The temperature should be maintained between 32 and 38 degrees to allow natural enzymes to tenderize the meat. If the temperature goes above 40 degrees, spoilage will occur. Most deer two to three years old require hanging for only one day; if deer hang for longer periods, keeping an eye on the temperature becomes critical. Tenderloins, the two large muscles on the inside of the body cavity that run along the backbone to the hipbone, should be removed immediately after hanging. These are the most tender pieces of any deer that has been field dressed properly - the filet mignons. The loin, which runs along both sides of the backbone, is generally the next piece of meat to remove. Trimming off as much of the connective tissue, the white part, will help ensure a tender steak. Sloppy cutting that leaves the connective tissue is the primary reason meat is difficult to chew; it also contributes to the gamey flavor. From there, the shoulders can be cut for pot roasts or stews, or ground for burgers. The flank and breast are also good for stews or ground for meatballs. Legs can be cooked whole like a leg of lamb, cured and smoked, or cut into small pieces for kabobs. Hind and fore shanks can be cut for stews or ground for meatloaf. The rump makes an excellent pot roast or it can be ground for deerburgers or cubed for stews. The round is typically cut into steaks which are perfect for grilling, so save some for summer. Loin and rib chops are best cooked with dry heat as in frying, broiling, grilling or roasting. Don’t overlook the neck which contains a lot of meat but is time-consuming to debone. The meat can be used for stew or ground for sausages. As mentioned above, careful trimming of the connective tissue will help ensure tender cuts. Excessive fat left on the meat also adds to the gamey taste. Use a moist heat method of cooking the shoulders, rump, flank and breast. Adding butter or bacon during dry cooking methods helps prevent the meat from becoming too chewy. Practicing good cleaning methods is a necessity. Using sterilized utensils and washing the meat thoroughly before packaging will help prevent contamination. Refrigerating the meat promptly will keep bacteria at bay. In review, to ensure good-tasting, tender venison, hang the carcass and keep the temperature below 40 degrees. Use a salt solution to clean the body cavity one more time and remove all fat and connective tissue from the meat. Use the best cooking method for each piece and practice safe food-handling practices. With all this prime meat on hand the culinary options are limitless. Roasts, stews, steaks, burgers and jerky are the norm, but why not try using venison for bologna, lasagna, sauerbraten, salami or pepperoni. Venison can even be canned.

FISHING & HUNTING SAFETY TIPS for everyone

Shooting Safety

• Always point the muzzle in a safe direction. Do not point a firearm or bow at anything you do not intend to shoot. Control the direction of the muzzle at all times. Never rest a muzzle on your toe or foot. Keep your finger out of the trigger guard until the instant you are ready to fire. Always keep the safety on until ready to fire; however, the safety should never be a substitute for safe firearm handling. • Trust every firearm or bow with the same respect you would show a loaded gun or nocked arrow. Every time you pick up a firearm, the first thing you do is check to see if it is loaded. Be sure the chamber and magazine are empty and that the action is open until ready to be fired. If you do not understand how to determine if it is loaded, do not accept the firearm until someone has safely shown you that it is unloaded. Read your instruction manual carefully before you handle new firearms or bows. • Be sure of your target and what is in front of and beyond your target. Before you pull the trigger you must properly identify game animals. Until your target is fully visible and in good light, do not even raise your scope to see it. Use binoculars! Know what is in front of and behind your target. Determine that you have a safe backstop or background. Since you do not know what is on the other side, never take a shot at any animals on top of ridges or hillsides. Know how far bullets, arrows and pellets can travel. Never shoot at flat, hard surfaces, such as water, rocks or steel because of ricochets. • Unload firearms and unstring conventional bows when not in use. Leave actions open, and store sport-

ing arms in cases when traveling toand from shooting areas. Take bolts out or break down shotguns, if necessary. Know how your equipment operates. Store and transport firearms and ammunition separately and under lock and key. Store firearms and bows in cool, dry places. Use gun or trigger locks and guards when not in use. • Handle the firearms, arrows and ammunition carefully. Avoid horseplay with firearms. Never climb a fence, a tree or a ladder with a loaded firearm or bow and arrows. Never jump a ditch or cross difficult terrain with a loaded firearm or nocked arrow. Never face or look down the barrel from the muzzle end. Be sure the only ammunition you carry correctly matches the gauge or caliber you are shooting. Always carry arrows in a protected cover or quiver. Learn the proper carries. Try to use the two-hand carry whenever possible because it affords you the best muzzle control. Always carry handguns with hammers over an empty chamber or cylinder. If you fall, be sure to disassemble the gun and check the barrel from the breech end for obstructions. Carry a field cleaning kit. • Know your safe zone-of-fire and stick to it. Your safe zone-of-fire is that area or direction in which you can safely fire a shot. It is "down range" at a shooting facility. In the field it is that mental image you draw in your mind with every step you take. Be sure you know where your companions are at all times. Never swing your gun or bow out of your safe zone-of-fire. Know the safe carries when there are persons to your sides, in front of, or behind you. If in doubt, never take a shot. When hunting, wear daylight fluorescent orange so you can be seen from a distance or in heavy cover. • Control your emotions when it comes to safety. If you lose control of your emotions you may do something carelessly. If you have just shot a target or animal you probably will be excited. At that moment you may turn with a loaded firearm back towards your friends or you might run with a loaded firearm

towards a downed animal with the gun safety off. You or someone else may be in danger once you lose control of your emotions. Show discipline. Rehearse in your mind what the safe actions will be. Do not allow your daydreams to prelace good judment. Show restraint and pass up shots which have the slightest chance of being unsafe. • Wear hearing and eye protection. While shooting at the range, you must wear hearing and eye protection at all times. Firearms are loud and can create noises which are damaging to a person's hearing. It can be a gradual loss of hearing due to outbursts of noise over many years. The damage could also be immediate, especially if your ears are next to a muzzle blast. Vibrations from the blast are enough to create loss of hearing. Wear glasses to protect your eyes from escaping gases, burnt powder (especially in blackpowder shooting), and other debris. • Don't drink alcohol or take drugs before or while handling firearms or bow and arrows. Alcohol and drugs impair normal physical and mental body functions and mustn't be used before or while handling firearms or archery equipment. These substances affect emotions, making it easier to lose control. • Be aware of additional circumstances which require added caution or safety awareness. Just because something isn't listed under these "ten commandments of shooting safety" doesn't mean you can ignore it if it is dangerous. There may be rules such as in muzzleloading or archery or posted at a shooting range which should also be followed. Also, practice reloading safety by following and reading all specific instructions. Practice all commandments of shooting safety. Ensure a safe future for you, others and the shooting sports!

Respect Continued from P.7 Boating Safety for Hunters

When boating, each person on board should wear a life jacket or other personal floatation device. Don't overload the boat. Check the capacity plate, and never exceed the weight limit or number of people you safely can have aboard. Consider the weight of your passengers and equipment. Hunters and their dogs should always remain seated. If you must move, stay in the center of the boat and keep a low center of gravity. Always check the weather, and stay on shore if bad weather occurs or is expected. Tell a responsible person where you are going and when you will return. You should also observe the rules of safe firearms handling and transport. All firearms being transported in a boat during hours of darkness should be unloaded and cased. Hypothermia is an added danger when hunting around water. This loss of inner body heat most commonly occurs when the air temperature is between 30 and 50 degrees. Carry extra clothes in a waterproof bag. Keep a survival kit with you, including matches in a waterproof container. This allows you to build a fire for warmth and to dry your clothes if wet. If your boat capsizes, stay with it. If the boat is still afloat, climb on top. You're more likely to survive if you're not in the water. Wear your life jacket. This keeps you warmer and your head above water. Use common sense when boating to your favorite hunting spot. Allow extra time so you don't forget important safety precautions. Don't let your next waterfowling trip turn into a tragedy.

Hunting Safety Tips

Don't rely on your gun's safety. Treat all weapons as if they're loaded and ready to fire. Never cross a fence, climb a tree or stand or jump in a ditch with a loaded gun. Never hoist a loaded weapon into a stand. Never load or carry a loaded weapon until you are ready to use it. Always unload weapons before reding in any vehicle, including ATVs. Watch your muzzle so the other fellow doesn't have to. Wear hunter orange so you can be seen. A blaze orange hat and at least 400 square inches of hunter orange above the waist-line should be worn during all gun deer seasons. It should be worn at all times, not taken off once in the stand. Keep guns and ammunition seperately and in locked storage. Don't shoot unless absolutely sure of your target

and what is beyond it. Know the range of your weapon. Remember, even a .22 rimfire can travel over 2-1/2 miles. Always wear eye and ear protection when shooting firearms. Always be sure your gun barrel and action are clear of obstructions, and only carry ammunition specifically intended for the weapon you're using. Always carry handguns with the hammer down on an empty chamber. Avoid alcholic beverages before and during shooting. Tell someone where you're going and when you plan to return. If you move from one area to another advise someone. Dress for the weather, take a compass and maps to prevent from getting lost, and be alert for other sources of danger such as poisonous snakes. Carry a flashlight while walking through the hunting area before or after daylight.

Hunting Ethics

As the hunter learns the basics of hunting safety, he must also develop certain responsibilities to the sport. An understanding of game laws, sporting codes and wildlife management are as important as handling a weapon safely. All hunters must develop a code that make them good hunters. This code is called "hunter ethics." Obey all the rules of safety and insist that those around you do the same. Obey all game laws and insist that those hunting with you do likewise. Do your best to acquire marksmanship and hunting skills that assure clean, sportsmanlike skills. Support conservation efforts that assure good hunting for future generations. Don't be a slob. Keep your campsite neat, and don't offend others by openly displaying your kill in camp or on your vehicle. Pass along to other hunters, especially youngsters, the attitudes and skills essential to being a true outdoor sportsman.

Tree-Stand Safety

When using a tree stand, always adhere to the follwing safety rules, and the chance of an accident can be minimized. Wear a safety belt. If your stand collapses, a safety belt will prevent you from falling. Don't leave much slack in the belt. One or two feet of slack will allow you to turn 360 degrees, and if a fall occurs, you'll only fall one or two feet. Use a cord or rope to raise and lower all equipment from the stand, keeping your hands free for climbing. Keep equipment on the opposite side of the tree from which you are climbing, so if you do fall, you won't fall on your equipment. Inspect your stand. Check for loose or rotten boards, loose nuts and bolts, and replace worn chains or straps.Practice setting up your stand. Be familiar

with the workings of the stand before you go to the woods. Before using manufactured stands, always read the instructions and warnings. Tell a dependable person where you're hunting and when you'll return. If you're injured and can't get out of the wood, someone will know where to look for you. Pick a mature tree on which to secure your stand. Do not use a tree that is rotten or has dead limbs that may fall on the stand. Clear the tree of any limbs that could cause a fall, but get permission before you start clearing. If you're not allowed to cut limbs, use cords to tie them back. If the weather turns bad, return to the ground. High winds make stands unstable. Rain, snow or sleet can cause you to slip. Extra precautions are needed in these situations. Don't fall asleep. This is a common cause of accidents. If you get drowsy, leave the stand and walk around to wake yourself up. Remember, the higher you are in your stand, the further you might fall. If you do fall, don't panic. Try to determine the injuries you have. Check for spinal cord injuries by wiggling your feet and legs. If you suspect you have this type of injury, don't move. Stop excess bleeding. Check for broken bones, and if you think you have any, support them with splints. Carry a survival kit at all times. Include matches, string, candy bars, a whistle and other items that can make an overnight stay more comfortable. If you told someone where you are and when you're expected to return, help should be on its way. Hunting safely from a stand depends on what you do before you hunt. Being prepared is the best way to prevent tree stand accidents.pulling the trigger.

Unwelcome Guests

During the early part of deer season, especially in the west, rattle snakes will still be active. Items left on the ground during your camping should be checked before loading up to return home.

Stay alive!

Teach these methods and rules to your children and family members.

While oatmeal is a wonderful way to add fiber, grains, nutrients to your diet, most folks think of oatmeal as a breakfast food. It's time to take oatmeal beyond breakfast. Oatmeal is a whole grain because it contains all of the parts of the oat grain, including the bran, endosperm and germ. The interesting thing is that when we eat the regular oatmeal most of us grew up with, we aren't eating the grain in its original form. We are usually eating rolled oats. Rolled oats have been steamed and flattened. That process decreases the cooking time so old-fashioned oatmeal can be prepared in 10 to 25 minutes. Quickcooking oats that can be prepared in 3 to 5 minutes have been cut even more finely to reduce cooking time. Some people prefer steel-cut oats. The primary difference between steel cut oats and rolled oats is the shape of the grain. Steel-cut oats are not flattened - the grain is cut into thirds and then packaged for sale. When preparing steel-cut oats, it's best to use 4 cups of water to each cup of oats. The cooking time for steel-cut oats is 30 to 40 minutes. Steel-cut oats have a chewy texture and hearty flavor. All oatmeal is a good source of fiber, magnesium and thiamine. It also contains phosphorus, potassium, iron and copper. Oatmeal carries a health claim on the food label because of the fiber content. The health claim is that oatmeal - along with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. Adding oatmeal to these delicious Salmon Cakes boosts the nutrients and adds a delicious texture to the dish. The Yogurt Dill Sauce complements the Salmon Cakes and is the perfect topping if you prefer to serve the Salmon Cakes on a bun.

Salmon Cakes: 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) pink salmon, drained, skin and bones removed 3/4 cup oatmeal, quick-cooking or rolled, uncooked 1/3 cup skim milk 1/3 cup liquid egg substitute with yolk or 1 egg, lightly beaten 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1. In small bowl, combine sauce ingredients; mix well. Cover and chill while making salmon cakes. 2. In a medium bowl, combine ingredients for salmon cakes; mix well. Let stand 5 minutes. Shape into 6 oval patties. 3. Lightly spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook salmon cakes over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and heated through. Serve with sauce.

Strange, but true By Samantha Weaver It's still not known who made the following sage observation: "To succeed in politics, it is sometimes necessary to rise above your principles." It was beloved American poet Robert Frost who made the following sage observation: "A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain." In 1938, Time magazine featured Adolph Hitler on the cover as its Man of the Year. You might be surprised at some of the amazing feats that can be accomplished with the aid of modern medicine. In 2008, two women in India gave birth at the age of 70. With the aid of egg donation and postmenopausal in vitro fertilization, Rajo Devi Lohan gave birth to her only child, a girl. Charan Singh Panwar and his wife, Omkari Panwar, already had two daughters and five grandchildren, but they wanted a son. Using the same procedure, Omkari had twins, a boy and a girl. The first time a toilet was ever seen on television was in the pilot episode of "Leave It to Beaver," in 1957. The most common name in the world is Muhammed. If you live in the South, home of huge

roaches, you probably won't be surprised to learn that a cockroach can live for a week without a head. When the headless insect does finally die, it's from starvation, not from the loss of its head. Those who study such things say that there are 45,000 chickens for every person on the planet. The word "pretzel" comes from the Latin word for "little reward." Before H. Ross Perot became a successful businessman - and had a brief, somewhat less successful career as a politician - he broke horses for a living. Statistics show that three out of four married women over the age of 50 are on their second marriage. In the same age range, five out of six men are in the same marital situation. Fireflies start to glow in order to attract a mate, and they die soon after finding one. Experienced boot makers reportedly can get three pairs of the footwear out of a single ostrich hide.

King of the game birds The wild turkey is the largest of all game birds in North America, but bagging a wild turkey is often a matter of being in the right place at the right time. To better ensure that you bag a bird, it is advisable to scout the area before you hunt. Wild turkey can be found throughout most areas of the United States. In rural areas the male wild turkey, referred to as a tom or gobbler, is commonly seen casually walking along the roadside or near the edge of a field or pasture. Toms may look like they’re out for a leisurely stroll, but they are actually in their strutting zone, the purpose of which is to attract hens. Wild turkey are creatures of habit. They follow the same pattern of behavior every day, and hunters who know that routine are the most successful. A typical day in the life of a wild turkey goes a lot like this: After spending the night roosting in a tree, the tom will

gobble at first light in an attempt to draw a hen. If a hen flies down, he will join her; if not, he will fly down and head to his strutting zone, continuing to gobble. An important point to note is that the tom will never leave the roost until he’s certain it is safe to do so by scanning the ground first for predators. This could be an hour or two after dawn in bad weather or in heavily wooded areas where sunlight is slower to filter through the trees. The strutting zone is located in open areas, often on elevated ridges, where hens can easily see the tom. The dominant male will strut the longest and have his feathers fully fanned to impress the hens. Once hens are attracted, the gobbling becomes infrequent, although the strutting continues as the tom follows the hens as they feed. He may mate several times with each hen during the morning. Wild turkeys are not likely to stop for water except in the most arid of climates. They consume enough moisture through feeding in most areas of the country. Once the demand for food has been met, hens may retire to the nest while toms give themselves a dust bath or continue to strut and gobble to attract further hens. Afternoons are spent feeding. As the day grows long, the flock heads back toward the roosting area and flies up around sunset. Particular about roosting sites, they may change trees several times before finally selecting just the right one. Locate your turkeys prior to the hunting day by scouting. If no wild turkey is spotted by scouting, you may need to use a locator call, listening for a reply. To some hunters, turkey calling is the best part of the sport. Knowing which calls to use and the challenge of getting that tom to come when called is the biggest thrill. Experts recommend giving a call every quarter mile until a response is heard. Pinpoint the gobbler location and mark the site or trail so you will be able to find it again later. Because wild turkeys are such creatures of habit, you can hunt the same area year after year once you’ve located a hot spot. The best way to bag a turkey is to “roost” a gobbler, which means to locate him in his roost tree the night before the hunt. Plan to arrive back on the scene before sunrise about 100 yards from the roost. As daylight arrives, successful hunters give a few quiet tree yelps to which the gobbler will reply. Be patient at this point. Most hunters make the mistake of yelping louder or too frequently if they don’t get a reply immediately. Scratch at the ground like a foraging hen before calling again. And remember, in foggy or rainy weather gobblers may stay in the roost a bit longer before flying down. Although this early morning strutting time is the best to bag a bird, there will be other opportunities as the day passes. Turkeys feed until about 10:00 a.m. If you wait along their grazing route, they may eventually walk right into your path. Because they are slow feeders, this waiting game may take awhile but it’s the hunter with patience who takes the tom home. Between late morning and mid-afternoon, stake out strutting zones. Gobblers return to these areas, seeking more hens when the morning hens retire. The action slows down after 2:00 p.m., although many a tom has met his match during this time. Experts recommend the hunter find a comfortable shady spot not far from the turkeys and give a few yelps every 15-20 minutes. Gobblers are quieter at this time of day and the tom may not reply until he’s within shooting range. Be ready. Late afternoon brings feeding zones into the action again, so stake out one and wait patiently. During the last hour of daylight, try to pinpoint the roosting area if you have not done so already. By doing this, you’ll know where to start the hunt on the following day. Don’t be fooled by a turkey’s sluggish appearance and behavior. They may look slow and eat slow, but they can run up to 12 miles an hour. Although they can’t fly long distances, once in the air they can reach 35 miles an hour quickly and glide a half mile when threatened. Play it cool and you’ll bag that gobbler this year.

Household tips

especially important if you don't spend a lot of time cooking. When you need to crush nuts or a cracker for crumbs and don't have a rolling pin, put them in a plastic bag and use a small can of soup to crush them. To avoid a dirty-smelling hamper, place a single sheet of fabric softener in the bottom of your laundry closet or in the hamper itself. To keep sauces from splattering and dirtying the inside of your microwave, cover the food with a damp paper towel or a coffee filter.

The best way to cook leafy, green veggies such as spinach and kale is to stir fry them in just the water left over from rinsing. It works very well to steam them, and adds no fat! Keep track of the capacity and dimensions of your cookware by using a permanent marker to notate the specifications on the bottom of each of your baking containers. This way, when a recipe calls for a 13-by-9 baking dish or a two-quart casserole dish, you can easily tell which one you need. This is

Get a good hunting buddy It’s a pretty iconic picture. A hunter in a day-glow orange vest, gun in hand and his faithful hunting dog by his side. Dogs have been used for hundreds of years to assist hunters, and they can be a tremendous help to hunters of all kinds. . Of course, you’ll want to get a dog that will help you out with your kind of hunting. A couple of broad categories include hounds and gun dogs. Hounds hunt by sight or smell and are primarily used to hunt fur-bearing animals, like rabbits, raccoons and coyotes. Some breeds prefer to hunt alone, while others work best in a pack. A solitary coon hound won’t be nearly effective as it would be in a pack. Gun dogs are used in pursuit of small game, usually with the hunter using a shotgun. These include pointers, which locate and flush small game like pheasants, and retrievers, which go and get ducks and other birds after they have been shot.

It’s really hard to go down to your local pet store or humane society and get a good hunting dog. In areas where hunting is popular, many people specialize in breeding and raising purebred dogs specifically for the hunters in their region. You’ll want to check the credentials of any breeder. You can treat your retriever the way you would teach any dog to fetch. Wave an object in front of the dog and throw it a short distance. When the dog has the toy, command it to return the toy to you. It’s essential that your dog learn your voice and what your commands mean so that it will return when the time counts. When it does, reward your dog with a small treat. You can continue this process, throwing the toy farther and farther away. When you have mastered that, you can work on retrievals that are much further away, walking your dog to the spot, then walking it away.
