Weekend Basser’s Ice Breaker Tournament

Die hard bass anglers who are savvy about their skills can test them and prove their merit as hawg hunters during the Ice Breaker Tournament at Motts Reservoir on Feb. 24 and Mar. 9 in Spotsylvania. Fishing a deep sided reservoir during the late winter can be very tough. I spoke to both Ray Thomas and longtime angler and tournament organizer, Dickie Musselman, about the fishing during the Ice Breakers. Thomas says that

Despite the effects of Hemorrhagic Disease (HD) and the likely lower harvest figures, hunters are beginning to see deer again. It’s as if the deer have a calendar and hunting regulation booklet: they began coming out soon after the season ended and some even before.

A number of hunters and landowners have taken coyotes this season. In a recent hunt near NSWC a group of hunters took a half dozen coyotes before lunch and

Small game action fills in for lack of deer hunting

The last half a dozen times I have ventured into the woods I have carried a .22 rifle. While I have not given up on deer hunting, I have read the writing on the wall and realize that seeing a deer is going to require more than a few short walks around the property to get a shot.
