    Don’t miss great August fishing

    Before summer arrives, it seems to take forever to get here. But as soon as the kids get out of school, activities begin, and the hot days fly by at lightning speed. As August arrives, the summer will be winding down, and the kids will soon start school again. Even though it is one of the hottest months, it’s a perfect time to find some water and dredge up a largemouth bass, bluegill or channel catfish with the youngsters before they start the new school year.

Having photographic evidence of what passes through our hunting grounds is a piece of the hunting puzzle that sportsmen of decades ago never had access to, and the knowledge it gives us is unbeatable.

    Hidden plots are gems

    Even though it’s still blazing hot, August is a great time to locate and prepare a new place to pull in a big buck during the upcoming deer season. The neighboring agriculture field or the 10-years-going-strong food plot will always be good places to see some nice deer, yet the mature deer will quickly pattern hunters and anything they see as a threat during the daylight.
