Need Bait? How to Net Cast and Catch Your Own Bait

Basic Cast Netting Techniques 015I was very young when I learned to cast a net. While too young to actually throw one, I was keenly observant of activities in the household and was able to easily pick up the technique. As I grew older, I began to watch strangers, family, and friends perform this rather pleasant task and thus was eventually able to determine the best method for capturing bait fish (or really any fish) that is cast net worthy.

By: Samantha Lile  January 25, 2015

The SHOT Show is the greatest display of firearms, hunting gear and military equipment the world has to offer, and the general public isn’t allowed to go.

Almost 64,000 shooting,hunting and outdoor trade affiliates attended the 2015 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) Jan. 20-23 at Las Vegas’ Sands Expo Center, where they bought and sold plenty of firearms, ammunition, outdoors and even law enforcement, tactical and military equipment from more than 1,600 companies representing 150 countries.

The SHOT show isn’t open to the public, but there’s at least 30 reasons we wish it was:

Bow Hunting Fit

As we start a new year many of us set goals to accomplish throughout the year. Many of these goals include new jobs, quit smoking and becoming financially independent.

1st Annual Podcaster Mash Up at ATA2015 & Why We Should All Be Working Together

Why should outdoor podcasters work together instead of against each other? Let me count the ways.

All joking aside, the 2015 Archery Trade Association Tradeshow was amazing, I have a lot to say on the subject but that will come later. First I wanted to address one of the greatest take aways for me personally from the event.

Podcasts are definitely a niche business. There’s no video so you eliminate those that are only interested in visual gratification. There are no words so you eliminate those who enjoy dissecting an article.

But it is by far the most intimate and fastest growing media demographic as we all become busier and busier, as people start going to the gym more regularly, as they move farther and farther away from the city and have a longer commute. Unlike a blog or a video you can listen to a podcast virtually everywhere. Continue reading 1st Annual Podcaster Mash Up at ATA2015 & Why We Should All Be Working Together
