Hot temps equal hot action for Rapp cats

If last week was any indication, the catfish spawn must be ending. Two young men, Elijah and Rex, were up bright and early to beat the heat and join me on a trip to the Rapp to pound some old catfish water in search of some action.

With temps predicted to reach into the upper 90s and the heat index to creep towards 110, I wanted to be off the water by 10 AM for sure. Being in a metal boat in the bright sunshine in those temps will fry any brain cells you might have, and I did not want to lose what few I had left.

Take care of your hunting dog this summer

During the summer, it is tempting to not work your four-legged hunting partner and let them lie in the shade. After all, with temperatures nearing 100 degrees last week, it would seem almost cruel to give your dog a workout, right? I disagree, with some exclusions, of course.

Dads play an important role in the outdoors

It is absolutely no secret that fathers play a key role in introducing kids to the outdoors.

My father began taking me fishing and hunting at an early age. We fished and hunted for two reasons- First, Dad enjoyed being outdoors catching fish and hunting small game.
