Back 40 Outdoors

For those of you who don't already know I am involved with a website called www.backfortyoutdoors.com/blog we have recently changed the website around and are currently adding content as we speak. I encourage all of you to visit the site and let us know what you think. We also are sponsoring the DIY forum at http://www.sagecreekoutfitters.com/ we are going to have a ton of videos some of them are hunts we have filmed but more importantly a lot of tips and techniques that we all like to use. Come and check us out. The picture I added doesn't have anything to do with my post but it is a picture from an area in Wis. that I hunt and beings that the hunting season is oh so close I felt it appropriate to share.

Finally !!!

Well it finally happened, I have had my cameras out for almost two months and I had yet to get a decent buck on film. Well I checked one of my cameras last Friday night and I got a good one. He is a solid bodied buck with a nice spread to boot. I need him to put some inches on his tines and when he does he will be a shooter for sure. Every day we get closer to the archery season, I don't think I have ever been as ready as I am this year hopefully all the hard work will pay off.

On a side note I had a comment on my last post that asked if we ate those ugly looking Gar up here. The answer to that is yes we do. You would all be surprised on how they taste, it is a tougher meat but not any tougher than shrimp or lobster, the wife loved it and she is a very picky eater. So if you ever get the chance to try some gar give it a shot. As for the carp no those we use for fertilizer it's to bad we can't find a better use for them because we have plenty.

Food Plot Updates

It is going in to the Fourth of July weekend boy that's hard to believe, where did the time go? My favorite two food plots have been in the ground now for 5-6 weeks and another was planted one week ago ( Brassicas) every thing is looking good and seeing the pics from my CuddeBacks it doesn't look like we have any shortage of Does and fawns and the occasional young buck. Another month or so and we should start getting some pics of good bucks. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out later this summer.
