Fall is the best season of the year. Spring gets all the glory, but that’s only because everyone’s sick of winter. In March, even a 48-degree day with spitting rain seems nice. Give me that same day in autumn, and I’m stoking the fire. Unless I’m after smallmouth bass. One...

I’m predicting a “trickle rut” this fall, based largely on the timing of the full moons in mid-October and mid-November. I expect a good number of does, more than usual, to cue off the bright illumination and pop into early estrus from October 16, through the full moon on the...

8 Things to Know About Drought and Western Big Game Hunting

Hunters across the West are welcoming archery season with smokey skies and above-average temperatures. Many states had blazing hot streaks and little to no rain for most of the summer.

5 Best Fall Smallmouth Fishing Tactics

As a kid, we fished for largemouth bass in the summer. We’d catch the lion’s share of them around weed beds and shady docks. But every now and then I’d wake up early enough to tag along with the grownups to go smallmouth fishing. In the summer, our resident brown...


Travis “T-Bone” Turner on Archery and Camo
