Life of a Golf Course Goose
A sentry on duty We have the good or bad fortune of living on a golf course fairway. Canada geese also make the golf course their home, and they are a really exciting bird to watch beginning in the early spring and throughout the year. I hunt waterfowl, but not the Canada goose as it would be like hunting my neighbors. The golf course has everything the Canada Goose needs. There is plenty of food as the fairway is composed of grass that attracts their palate. The fairway has a large body of water along one side, and there is a sand pit. Food to eat, water to drink and to float around on, and sand for their gizzards are all they need. The grasses on the golf course are very digestible and the layout of the course is very open and allows the birds protection from predators. They can see a problem coming

The Catching Never Ends
Platte Creek Lodge and Guide Service. Wow, Wow, and more Wow! It just can’t get much better than this. My guide and I hit the lake really early. With this fantastic weather, the lake would be packed, and it was a Saturday. Pam backed out and said , ” I am sleeping in in this morning, but be back by lunch.” It is like people have been locked up so long and needed to get out and with this weather and lake conditions, it was time to go, and catch some walleye. The wind had moved southeasterly with a front about 100 miles out. The beautiful weather was going to change and we needed to get on it before the front arrived and the conditions changed. The wind was forecast-ed to switch to the east with low clouds, mist, and rain. Been there, done that, and it turns off. We got to the
Oh Turkey Where Art Thou
Trigger more aggressive behavior from any gobbler during the spring mating season with the flextone Funky Chicken Gen II Turkey Decoy. Three miles north of Council Bluffs, in the colorful Loess hills, is a farm that is more akin to a meat market than a farm. Besides the landowner, I am the only person who has a key to get into the ground. Turkey and deer abound and whenever up at the farm you always see plenty of animals. Over the last four years I have hunted one spot with outstanding success. That success is due to the decoy Funky Chicken Turkey Decoy. Adding a couple of feeder hens nearby helps provide serenity and calmness to the area. I bury myself into as much cover as possible, and wait 30 minutes for the forest to calm down. When I hear the music of birds and see deer running across the fields in front of me,
Walleye Galore on Lake Francis Case
Lake Francis Case is the large, gently winding reservoir behind Fort Randall Dam on the Missouri River in south-central South Dakota. The lake has an area of 102,000 acres and a maximum depth of 140 feet. Lake Francis Case covers just over 100 miles and has a shoreline of 540 miles. That is how you get your wife to go fishing with you. Our guide and good friend is in the background. A good friend and his wife had just come back from a two day fishing trip and gave an outstanding recommendation for a guide, using his boat and equipment, and a lodge to stay at. The pictures they had were of some excellent walleye fishing. The fish caught were not big lunkers, but really nice size fish in the 15 to 18 inch class. These fillet out really nice and fry up even better. Picture is produced by Harry Weddington, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
