The holiday season is fast approaching and as sad as we are to
put our boats away for the winter we embrace this time of year to plan for the
upcoming season with much anticipation of another banner year on the water full of great memories.
As you are embarking on the ever dreadful holiday shopping spree this year I’ll suggest a few items for that Angler/Hunter in your life. I feel that I have always been the easiest person to buy for just as most Outdoor enthusiast as hunting and fishing are gear driven industry so there are plenty of options available in all price ranges. Anglers love tackle even when we don’t need any we still buy more just in case. Lures make for great stalking stuffers as well. I personally prefer the Berkley Flicker shad crank bait these lures are very affordable and come in several different sizes and colors to make any anglers tackle box the envy of others. These are a very multi species lures and work all year around. Another great option is a knife all hunters and anglers love knifes and we never have enough of them. Every situation calls for a different knife rather it’s an electric fillet knife (Mister Twister) or a traditional Old timer buck knife you can’t go wrong with a knife. Bottom bouncers,
Jigs, pliers, rod & reel covers, are just a few of the lower priced items
that make for great gifts and stocking stuffers.
For a little different approach this holiday season think about a gift that will last a life time “Memories” We have all heard the quote that “life is not measured by the breath you takes, but by the moments that take your breath away”. As a child growing up in Nebraska I vividly remember my first fishing
trip from a boat on Harlan County Reservoir, my first Turkey hunt in the prestige valleys of Valentine, Pheasant hunt near my home just outside of Lincoln on a snow day from school and Deer hunt with my good hunting buddies out west. These memories will be with me forever and cannot be taken away. These experiences have lead me to become very active in ensuring that our Sporting heritage remain just that our heritage and that we make every effort we can to preserve and conserve our wild and wetlands for our future generations. The best way to do this that I encourage religiously
is to take a child fishing or hunting. I personally have made it my mission to
get as many children out in nature that I possibly can and watching the smiles
on these children’s faces ensures me that they too will some day pass this love
for the outdoors on to their young ones. I have also had the opportunity this year to spend some time on the water and in the field with some amazing women that have just as much passion for the outdoors as I do and I must say it is very invigorating to spend time with these women and seeing that the outdoor craze is growing with much diversity.
Of course there are many sizeable gifts you can give that angler or hunter in your life to help contribute to making those memories such as a new
gun, rod & reel, Gear lots of gear but nothing will be more successful than
an experience. The experience of spending the day on the water learning about
techniques, baits, patterns and any particular lake you choose. The Walleye
