SPRING CALLING. A gusty day today with temps in the low 30s, and potentially a shot at 40 tomorrow make it feel more like spring than the dead of winter. Take advantage of the conditions which allow for mobility and get after it! We dial it up for the passing of another season, get tips for predators and look ahead to a great derby in today’s Three Things.

LAST CALL! The final day of pheasant season is today, get out there and bag that last bird of the season, or your first bird of the year. Southern gales will keep ‘em jumpy, so put in the long-distance chokes and touch ‘em all.
LOTS OF CALLS. YouTube has grown quite a gallery of calling videos for predator hunting. Check out all the wide and varied offerings and calling tips from everyday hunters to experts in the field.
CALL AHEAD. The Bis-Man Reel-n-Rec club will be hosting its annual Ice Derby on Lake Audubon, Feb. 16. The event runs from 10AM to 2PM with the raffle starting at 3PM.
