We’ve discussed locations and blind types in our previous segments. Obviously, both are important but having good cover in the perfect spot is useless if you don’t do the right things once inside. Knowing what you can get away with in regards to movement is paramount to having success from the ground. Continue reading Hunting from Natural Cover Part III – Blind Interaction
I 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. Continue reading Need Bait? How to Net Cast and Catch Your Own Bait

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:
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. A common goal is to become more fit. I want to take this goal and take it one step further. I don’t want to be fit; I want to be “Bow Hunting Fit”.

Many years ago, I adopted a fairly methodical approach to life. From paying debts to planning for retirement, I quantified life into a series of timelines and achievements upon which I scrutinized each with clinical and jaded eyes.

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

It is well known that I don’t care for most hunting tv shows out there. I don’t care for the phoniness, or the high fence kills made to look like public land, I don’t care for the chest thumping and the egos and I definitely do not care for the “Good ‘ol Boys Club” mentality.
But I do watch a handful of hunting shows that have proven over time to produce exceptional content. His & Hers TV is one of them. I highly recommend you check them out this season. ~CarrieZ

Welcome back outdoors world, thank you for stopping back to The Willes Way! If you look back at an article I wrote early last year, “Rifle Shopping for the Average Joe“, you know after my research, I purchased a Remington Arms Model 783 7mm. I had high expectations for this gun, all I needed was some time in the woods with this firearm to confirm I’d made the right choice. Here is what I learned.
