Fishing, Hunting Tips From The Pros
Whither Skunk Scent? Larry Bozka, a member of the Wrangler® Outdoor Advisory Team, relates this story about the proper placement of skunk scent. “Years ago, a wizened old rancher closely watched me as I set up a makeshift blind for antler rattling. I was about to mix the two-part skunk scent upwind of the blind when he stopped me. ‘Son, put that stuff downwind of you or else the breeze will pick up your scent and when it is blown into the skunk scent it will be masked just as well as it will if you smell it all day long.’ I have been grateful ever since…but probably not nearly as grateful as my hunting partners.”
How Cold Was It?
Anglers in the land of 10,000 lakes don’t let chilly weather stop a fishing expedition, whether on the water or the ice. Dean Capra of Capra’s Sporting Goods in Blaine, Minnesota says when temperatures fall into the 40s or lower he falls into a pair of Wrangler Rugged Wear’s lined Fleece Jeans. He also drops scented baits into his tackle box when cold-water fishing. “Throw it out. Let it sit. Don’t move it in an inch. Let the scent do its work. You’ll catch fish.” Got it?
Flying with Guns
Wrangler® Outdoor Advisory Team prostaffer Mark Kayser of Pierre, S. D., a frequent flyer and hunter, has a money saving tip for hunters flying to their next hunt. Airlines have lowered their maximum weights and number of pieces of checked luggage. To get the majority of your hunting equipment to your next destination, use your bow or gun case for extra items. After packing your bow or gun, use the remaining space to pack your rangefinder, knife, binocular, gloves, hat, rain gear and any odds or ends, so your other bags don’t fall into the overweight category.
If you're an angler who casts big lures on line testing 17- to 20-pounds, you can improve your chances of catching more fish by switching to a lighter line (like 4 to 6 pound line), a lighter rod, and lighter lures, says Bodie McDowell, a member of the Wrangler® Outdoor Advisory Team. “Not only will you catch more fish, even trophy-sized bass, you also may catch some bragging size panfish.”
