BEST FOR BASS. Bassmaster ranks the best bass lakes in the various regions of the country. Whether it’s for largemouth, smallmouth or spotted bass, this frequent tournament destination list is the result of angler enjoyment and years of successful events.
MULBERRY BUSH. Pheasants Forever shares a recipe for mulberry pheasants, combining what might be left in the freezer with what nature is producing on trees in the heart of summer.
DROUGHT TO DOUSED. Rains continue to push back drought conditions in the western portion of the state, while areas of the northeast have received more than 10 inches in the last week. We’ll keep an eye on conditions as pheasant recruitment and fawn growth progresses throughout the summer.
