Our Outdoors: Thick thoughts

In the dry, crackling brown of a cattail slough is one of my favorite places to be in the fall. When the stand of dense vegetation is about chest high – tall enough to provide a good screen and...

 

The Peluso Report: Small Movements

I've written about the lack of forage the smaller fish may have in Lake Oahe in a few reports as of late. While this is the case downstream on the main body of the flow, I'm not so sure this is the...

 

Power Your Hunting

Until I became an active hunter, leg day was the worst day in a workout routine. Usually falling on a Friday morning early in the weight room, it was the easiest one to skip and opt for sleeping in...

Tagged it! 4-Hers take shooting skills afield

Each fall, the North Dakota Game & Fish offers a special youth season for hunters ages 11-15. It's a great opportunity for young hunters to gain experience before the frenzy of rifle season sets...

 

Our Outdoors: At the end

I’m a fan of end-of-the-world movies, particularly those incorporating the zombie genre into their plot. There’s something that piques my interest in those scenarios where nothing is left but a ha...

Our Outdoors: On the Upswing

Grass equals birds. Habitat equals deer. Clean water equals fish. These are the things I along with many other hunters and anglers have come to know in the outdoors. I can recall once cutting from...

 

The Peluso Report: Not Ready for Beet Juice!

If you follow me on my Snapchat you know there are two things I absolutely hate. One is the beet juice they use on our streets in Bismarck in the winter, the other is wind. As you can guess by the...

 

Brad's Bites: Dropping Degrees

The nights have been cold over the past week, and we are losing just about a degree per night in water temperature on the Red River. Right now, we are just under 60 degrees, meaning there really isn't much time left for the good catfish bite of...

 

Northwest ND the New Pheasant Destination

With the youth pheasant weekend on tap in just a few days on Sat. Oct. 1, and the general pheasant opener just a week later on Oct. 8, hunters are checking their boots, loading shells in their vests,...

Our Outdoors: Ups & Downs

The rolling hills around Big Detroit Lake in western Minnesota typically kick off my autumn, but it isn't the scattering of ruffed grouse in its surrounding woods that elicit my echoing footfalls and...

 

The Peluso Report: Transition Fishin'

There is a lot of transition happening on Devils Lake right now, and I’m guessing this is the story for most of our waters in North Dakota. It’s just that time of year! Water temperatures fall at...

 

Brad's Bites: Fall Flux

What a difference few cool nights can make in the catfish bite on the Red River. It is that time of year, and when things change like this, the fish can get moody. The cold fronts bring the water temperatures down and that can shock the fish in the...

 

Casting & Blasting Across ND

The next few weeks present a unique overlap of just about everything as September turns into October. From summer festivities and back to school activities, to baseball, football, and even a hint of...

Our Outdoors: Big Finish

Often now it seems that summer extends past Labor Day weekend. Where I used to be sprinting around the front yard at the cabin in blue jeans and a sweatshirt, tracking down a lofted spiraling...

 

The Peluso Report: Fishery Status Update

In this week's fishing report I'm going to change course just a tad. With my recent cancellations, it has given me an opportunity to scout the upper stretches of the Missouri River near my hometown...

 

Brad's Bites: Good Gets Better

If you can believe it catfishing got better that it already has been on the Red River. The pattern has remained mostly the same from the past two weeks and fish can be found right in the middle of the river at the heads of holes. They are in the...

 

Summer Good for Late Grouse, Partridge Hatches

With the completion of the roadside brood surveys for North Dakota's upland game, and the sharptailed grouse and Hungarian partridge season opener set for this Saturday, hunters may find a better...

Our Outdoors: Four factors for upland game

Hunts are best viewed in hindsight. The thrill of the flush and the clamor of the shot often overpower the memory of the longer, quieter stretches of the walk leading up to those moments. But it is...

 

The Peluso Report: Walleyes Still White Hot

Walleye fishing up on Lake Sakakawea remains insane this week, and Devils Lake also remains good. I keep waiting for a major slow down, but it just hasn't happened yet. Like I've talked about in past...
