Top 5 Late Winter and Early Spring Activities for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Off-Season Practice and Preparation

Spring for most, is a date on the calendar. It’s hope for those who spend their winters in offices, homes, and commuter lanes.

It’s as if most of the people you talk to only consider the world to exist when the temperature is above 70 degrees.

That’s when we don’t have to shovel and salt the walkway, put on the coat and tear the house apart to find our gloves before running out of the door.

So many times, you hear “there’s just nothing to do in winter.”

By now you’ve probably archery hunted the late season, had your last shot at geese, and stretched your season out with small game.

Some of us have been busy finding whitetail sheds and tying flies.

Usually around this time of year though it can be tough to find ways to enjoy being outside with limited fishing and hunting opportunities.

For the winter’s last final grip of 4-6 weeks, depending on which groundhog’s prediction you trust, the cure for your restlessness might be to stop by the store.

Continue reading to learn more about our top 5 late winter and early spring activities for outdoor enthusiasts.

1. Shop New Hunting and Fishing Products

Outdoor product manufacturers are always looking toward next season.

In fact, trade shows for hunting and fishing companies are exclusively in the colder winter months when fewer of us are out in the field doing what we love.

That’s when new bows and fishing gear start to arrive so there are few better times in the year to get a jump on what you’ll need for warm-weather activities.

2. Shoot Our Indoor Archery Range and TechnoHunt

Hardcore archers shoot all year long, and the cold icy days of winter don’t have to stop you from shooting with our heated indoor archery range.

Winter doesn’t even have to stop you from spending an afternoon drawing back on elk, whitetail, turkey, antelope, grizzly bears, and even rattlesnakes — all in the same day.

With our indoor TechnoHunt range you and one friend can enjoy traveling the world and testing your archery skills on moving targets.

The scoring of your shots can even lend itself to some friendly competition about who’ll have to buy dinner, or drinks, after you’re done.

Once the days warm up and the woods start to become green again, local sporting and archery clubs are quick to set up the 3-D targets for archers.

Taking your archery skill test on a 3-D course is a perfect way to judge distance and form while out on a hike.

If you’re thinking about a new bow, rest, or release for the fall, there’s few better times to start now and practice all spring and summer. While being fun, it’s a set recipe for confidence in the tree stand this November.

3. Upgrade Your Fishing Rods, Reels, Tackle, and Bait

You also don’t have to wait until the night before the trout opener to look at new rods and reels.

The fishing section is currently stocked with this year’s newest and best.

There’s even a new version of the classics that never need a change to help you reel in your limit this year.

4. Prep For Spring Turkey Season

Turkey season in less than two months.

You probably still have your snow shovel handy, but still now is the time to start shopping and practicing your calls while checking in on your spring hunting gear.

Turkey calling icons Matt Morrett and Eddy Salter will tell you, practice early, often, and in your truck.

Even the best spouse will at some point become, less than supportive of your rehearsing.

Take the time now to sharpen your calling skills, without landing you in the dog house.

5. Grab a New Pair of Hunting Boots

Boots especially take 4-6 weeks to break in, and you wouldn’t want to lose any time chasing long beards because blisters forced you back to the truck early.

Every day it seems, there are more boot and footwear choices on the shelves at the store.

If your boots don’t have the tread they used to, or your socks got soaked on an early morning hunt, now’s the time to take a look at an upgrade.

Recap

Winter shopping can lend itself to a more enjoyable experience.

Usually, fewer people are out trying to get the same gear at the same time and more products are in stock and available.

It’s a great reason to get out of the house and put you in a better position when things thaw out in a few weeks.

Pennsylvania Launches HuntFishPA

HuntFishPA, new HuntFishPA website

HuntFishPA: A New Mobile-Friendly Outdoor Licensing Website

The PA Game Commission and the PA Fish and Boat Commission worked together to launch HuntFishPA, a new singular website for hunters, anglers, and boaters in the Keystone State. 

The new site, HuntFishPA, replaces the old Pennsylvania Automatic Licensing System (PALS) website, also known as The Outdoor Shop. 

HuntFishPA serves as a one-stop-shop to purchase licenses, launch permits, check the status of your antlerless deer tag, elk preference points, report harvests, and purchase other items from the organizations such as patches, t-shirts, posters, magazine subscriptions, and much more.

As the world continues to use more mobile devices and the technology becomes faster and smaller – the outdoor community in Pennsylvania felt it was time to update their licensing website accordingly. 

You can now create an account to log in to a personalized page, or checkout as a guest to make your purchases without a customizable account. 

The HuntFishPA site features a more transparent and easier to use system that should help to clear any confusion about what permits are needed and how to get them without having to navigate multiple sites. 

The system has a feature that remembers prior purchases so you can re-order, or even set your account up for an autorenewal. That way if you decide to head out at the last minute you’ll be covered if your local retailer is closed. 

If you still like to go to the store to buy your annual license, like I do, that’s also an option as the new system is used at 750 locations throughout the state

More importantly, if you enjoy buying your license at Kinsey’s Outdoors and taking advantage of the in-store coupons offered – you won’t miss a thing. 

It’s also worth mentioning that a new, more rugged green license will replace those familiar yellow licenses of years past. 

For more information on all of the updates and improvements to the new HuntFishPA website – check out the full details here.

Brandon’s New Compound Bow Upgrade

Buying a New Compound Bow

Buying a new compound bow is a big purchase no doubt about it. It’s something you’re going to spend a lot of time with sharing both successes and frustrations. A fairly serious investment for most of us, you want to make sure buyer’s remorse and disappointment are the last thoughts you have when you open that bow case on your way to the range or the woods.

As fun as it can be, going to the archery shop looking for a new compound bow can be nerve-racking. It’s understandable with all of the different makes and models, features, and available upgrades. Someone looking to upgrade their bow can be easily overwhelmed by all of the options available to them.

When it comes to the bow buying experience, bigger isn’t always better. Many times, archers will find that sacrificing service for selection is the way to go. You shouldn’t feel like you’re just another transaction. You’re spending a good deal of your money, someone shouldn’t be telling you what to do, they should help guide you through the process by answering any questions you may have.

When looking at some outdated and overused parts of my current bow, I realized it had been over 5 years since I had last upgraded and knew it was time for a trip to the archery counter at Kinsey’s Outdoors. Having been a customer before I was a Field Staff member, I knew that I would have a wide array of options and selection for the brands and models of the newest bows. Not only is it the vast bow selection, but it’s also the archery accessories and arrows I need are all available there in the store. No shipping, no substitutions, no waiting.

The service I’ve always experienced is, to me, how an archery shop should be. Even the staff members I haven’t met are always  happy to help me and answer my questions. It doesn’t matter how busy they are, they want to help you be happy with your purchase and shoot better because they are recreational shooters, archers, and hunters themselves.

Walking back to the bow wall, I found the biggest brands and newest compound bows to pick up and check out. You can look at every catalog and website you want, but there’s just no substitute for holding and drawing back a bow for yourself. You might find the bow you’ve been looking at is a little heavy, not quite the size you thought, or just as perfect as you thought it’d be.

Over the years I’ve shot and hunted with Mathews, Bear, and Hoyt. All three were available with some additional brands like Bowtech to try out as well. I personally feel comfortable shooting a Hoyt and wanted to try out their new Torrex bow. So, in no time at all one of the staff was happy to hand me a few arrows, a release, and walk me over to the test range. There you have nothing to worry about but drawing and shooting at a target roughly 10 yards away.

After a few arrows, Kinsey’s Outdoors Pro Staff member, Doug, was helping me fit my previous sights and rest from my old bow onto my new compound bow. A process that’s not only educational but easy. For the next 20 minutes or so, I just got to hang out and chat about all things hunting with other members of the staff.

Not long after that, it was upstairs to the indoor archery range to sight the bow in at 20 yards. A few adjustments later it was dialed in and ready for the woods. For me, the bow’s weight was perfect, it’s accurate and draws easily from the early season to the late season. That’s all I really ask of my hunting bows and this one delivered on all accounts.

I decided to keep my old bow as a back up in case I need it. You certainly don’t have to and Kinsey’s Outdoors wants to help you sell your old bow if that’s what you need to do in order to buy a new bow. It’s a service I’ve used in the past and they’ll handle all of the details of selling your old bow on consignment. For me, it has helped bridge the gap getting a new bow when I didn’t really want to keep my old bow.

You may know what you want, you may not. Whether you want or need a new compound bow it’s definitely worth the trip to the easy-going archery counter at Kinsey’s Outdoors. They hunt, they shoot, and they have the experience to point you in the right direction to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Three Sundays to Hunt

No matter on which side of the conversation you were on, history will be made this hunting season in Pennsylvania. For the first time ever, hunters will be legally allowed to hunt deer and bear on a Sunday expanding opportunities for hunters whose time is at a premium with work, school, and other family activities.

You may have seen the headlines back in the spring and even sifted through an article or two when the announcement was made. Now that historic change is close on the calendar, some may not know when, and what can be hunted these first Sundays.

The final approval was given to the dates of November 15 for archery deer hunting, November 22 for firearms bear hunting, and November 29 for firearms deer hunting. This three-week span undoubtedly provides an enormous opportunity for green or seasoned hunters and their families to make the most out of limited time afield.

The first Sunday during archery season for deer is not only an extra chance to fill that tag alone, it also occurs during a coveted, although debated and always changing, timing of the whitetail breeding season known to archery hunters as the rut. Bucks consumed with the yearly focus on breeding with receptive does tend to throw caution aside and come out of hiding providing an opportunity to hunters at larger bucks who most of the year spend their time hiding and moving at night.

November 22 brings a gift in the form of a firearms bear hunting opportunity, which if you’ve never participated in hunting for bear here in the keystone state, try to make friends with someone who’ll take you. The experience to hunt these elusive animals in some of the state’s prettiest country is a challenge well worth the effort. Having that first Sunday really opens things up to hunters who may have limited vacation time to use on an already limited season.

Finally, the tradition of traditions in Pennsylvania, the firearms season for whitetail deer. Generations of hunters can search back through some of their favorite memories of hunting with family and friends, here and gone, on those frosty mornings waiting for that shot. Corkboards in camps across the state are filled the pictures of past seasons. Cherished memories hanging there with every thumbtack.

Now hunters young and old have a chance to make more of those memories. Especially those families with limited time to spare, that in recent years elected not to go at all because a single day wasn’t worth time and money to go. This also benefits those communities in the state that rely on hunter dollars coming in as a result of this tradition. Revenue that had been declining hopefully now, will be infused back into these communities as hunters can justify spending money on a trip to the woods.

Whether you’ve had these dates circled on your calendar, or didn’t know about them, try to take advantage of this historic opportunity. This change has come after decades of debate in a state with a rich hunting tradition and an incredible opportunity for game on abundant public and private land. This is something a lot of individuals and organizations fought to achieve in the newspapers and the halls of the state capital. You’re likely to interact with other hunters and non-hunters out there who may not know the new regulations. Be safe and respectful, we as hunters get to see and take part in a lot of incredible things while hunting not everyone understands.

From all of us at Kinsey’s Outdoors be excited, be safe, best of luck, and let us know how you do out there.

Big Woods Whitetail — Interview with Beau Martonik

Gear Up for the Big Woods

Big woods whitetail hunting is about as challenging as it gets.  Not only do hunters have to deal with long treks across mountainous terrain, but the lack of agricultural food sources and typically lower deer densities test even the best woodsmanship.  There’s no one piece of gear available that equates to automatic success in any hunting situation, but the combination of the right mentality and quality equipment can increase success ratios by leaps and bounds.  Hunting in the big woods takes a lot of persistence, the ability to adapt, and great patience to be successful and one knows this better than Beau Martonik.

Martonik, a native of Pennsylvania’s vast Alleghany National Forest region, grew up hunting whitetails in one of the United States’ most storied big woods settings.  Beau has spent his entire life perfecting both his strategy and gear list so as to be able to locate, pursue and kill mature bucks in some of the most challenging conditions in the country.  Consistently punching tags in this terrain takes a purposeful and detailed approach and so I asked Beau to break down the process and system that leads to venison in the freezer and antlers on the wall, year after year.

Narrow The Search

Big woods bucks are crafty and unpredictable.  Being travelers of long-distance makes these bucks especially hard to pattern.  Instead of seeking out single-season patterns, Martonik stresses the value in looking for year-to-year patterns.  “Bucks tend to do the same things season after season”, Beau elaborated, “So using trail camera data from prior years is a great way to make logical assumptions about what they will do in following seasons.”  Quality trail cameras, with extended battery life, strategically placed along key terrain features, or social areas such as primary scrapes, are a great educational tool for the big woods hunter.  Even in big woods settings, Martonik is still looking for an edge.  He stresses that bucks in the big timber interact with edges much the same as they do in agricultural settings, but those edges look a bit different.  Creeks, clear cuts, thickets, and benches are all examples of the types of edge that these bucks like to use for travel.  Rut funnels such as ridge tops saddles also make for great cruising corridors in the mountains.

To locate these features, a quality mapping application is useful.  Martonik employs the use of OnX to pinpoint locations he will later check during his scouting efforts.  Remote and overlooked areas become quickly recognizable with the use of aerial and topographical maps; as do terrain funnels and vegetation changes that create the edges that big bucks love to use.

Gear Up

The challenge of hunting big woods whitetails will test your resolve, but it will also quickly show you any chinks in your gear “armor”.  In this environment, quality equipment not only makes the hunt more enjoyable, but it can, indeed, improve success ratios.  Once a hunter narrows the expanse of timber to several high percentage locations, having the right gear for the job is the next step in the process.  “When it comes to this type of hunting, a beneficial piece of gear to have is a high-quality frame pack- if you are successful it will carry your kill out,” Beau said.  “A ‘rut pack’ is also a huge benefit in the big woods; something that can integrate with a stand and sticks to get all the gear you need to the tree for an all-day sit.”

Martonik is also a huge proponent of high-level performance apparel systems.  Mountain hunters have long been pushing the envelope in the testing and development of new and better layering systems and the concept has begun to show its value in the whitetail woods as well.  He uses moisture-wicking base layers such as fast drying synthetics or natural merino wool fibers which retain their insulation capabilities even when they become damp from perspiration.  The key, though, is to reduce the amount of sweat, period.  To do this, Beau wears only a lightweight synthetic or merino layer when walking several miles to remote stand locations.  And that quality pack referenced above?  That holds the heavy outer layers that will be applied immediately after he cools down in his stand.  Going deep into the timber and pursuing big woods ghosts requires pack-ability and thermal regulation.  As such it is hard to overstate the importance of both a pack system and the apparel you choose.

Safety 

            Even with the advances in cell phone technology, if you are pushing the envelope and going where others aren’t willing to go, you will find yourself outside of cell phone service from time to time.  This is an area where Beau takes no chances.  “I am never not attached to the tree with a lineman belt or a safety line with a prusik loop attachment,” Beau said.  Staying tied off 100% of the time is imperative when doing this kind of hunting.  In fact, having two safety ropes often makes it easier to ensure you are tied in at all times, even when you are transitioning into and out of the treestand.  Hunters should be aware of suspension trauma, a very serious and potentially lethal phenomenon that occurs when hanging for an extended time from a harness.  Pooling blood in the suspended hunter’s legs can cause unconsciousness and unless rescued, eventually lead to death.  For this reason, and others, Beau has started to carry a GPS phone which allows texts to send via satellite even from the most remote locations.  Texts can include GPS coordinates for rescuers to use to find a hunter more quickly.  These devices are worthwhile investments, and hunters with western aspirations should especially consider them to be a necessary purchase.

Success 

            The hunt in the mountainous timber of the Appalachian Mountains is, in itself, a challenge.  However, having success in this environment is when the real work begins.  Dragging a deer over two miles of rugged terrain is a grueling task and quite a time commitment.  That’s why Martonik chooses to combine more western philosophy into his whitetail hunting and pack out his kills.  Using the gutless method, Beau is able to get all the venison, cape, and his gear out of the woods in two trips.  The aforementioned frame pack shines in this application.  He carries a “kill kit” consisting of the tools he needs (game bags, knife, garbage bag, flagging tape, paracord) to skin and process the deer on the ground.  With the gutless method, the abdomen of the deer is left intact and all the meat from the quarters and loin is removed and packed out with the frame.  Beau’s go-to for skinning and processing in the field is his Havalon replaceable blade knife, and with this process, he is able to make quick work of a deer after the kill and get out of the woods faster and with less physical exertion than the traditional “deer drag”.

There is always more than one way to skin the cat, as they say.  Martonik’s approach has evolved over his years in the timber through trial and error; and no doubt that kind of person who has the thirst for new adventure is the same kind of person who continually seeks new and better ways of doing things.  But, when it comes to locating and killing big woods deer, the whole Martonik family is proficient, to say the least, and Beau has a systematic approach and his gear list pretty dialed in.  So, I asked Beau what he believes is one of the biggest mistakes made by industry personnel when advising and instructing people on their gear choices for this “big woods” type of hunting. He replied, “From my experience working in retail, and now as someone who helps advise people on gear choices, I think the biggest thing people overlook is making certain that you understand the consumer’s intended use of the product.  I am going to advise someone entirely differently if they are planning to walk several miles in hill country versus walking a couple hundred yards to hunt a field edge.  It’s important to know their goals, and sometimes you have to be able to understand that maybe even better than they do themselves, so that you can make the proper recommendations for each individual hunter’s situation.”

PA Doe Tag, PGC Antlerless Deer Tag Status

How To Check The Status of Your Pennsylvania Antlerless Deer Tag Application

How To Check The Status of Your Pennsylvania Antlerless Deer Tag Application

If you’re anything like me, patience is a hard thing to come by especially when it pertains to hunting. This rings true every July after Pennsylvania hunting licenses officially go on sale and the lead up to submitting your antlerless deer tag application.

 

Every PA hunter is bound to have their own strategy in order to get that pink Pennsylvania Game Commission antlerless deer tag application envelop to their local county treasurer’s desk first thing Monday morning.

 

My rule of thumb is always trying to send out my antlerless deer application the Friday or Saturday before the Monday that the Antlerless Deer applications go on sale. Whether this level of planning and preparation is warranted or not, I still live by the adage that the early bird gets the worm. Or, in this case, their preferred WMU antlerless deer tag. It has worked for me up to this point so why fix something that isn’t broken?

 

Once I’ve submitted my antlerless deer application, the anticipation of whether or not I got my preferred WMU begins to build. Again, patience is hard to come by as I anxiously await to receive my self-addressed return envelop with my antlerless deer tag.

 

In years past, I’ve waited and watched for my check to clear only to wonder what WMU I was awarded out of the 3 WMUs I listed on my application.

 

However, in more recent years, I’ve learned how you can check the status of your Pennsylvania antlerless deer application. This works whether you’re a PA resident hunter or non-resident hunter.

 

Checking the status of your antlerless deer tag allows you to not only see if you’ve been awarded an antlerless tag, but also which WMU if you’ve been awarded a Pennsylvania antlerless deer tag.

 

In checking the status of your antlerless deer application online, you can help ease your mind in between submitting your PA Antlerless Deer Application and finally receiving your antlerless deer tag in the mail.

 

Below we’ve outlined how you can check the status of your Pennsylvania Game Commission antlerless deer application status online. We’ve also listed how to check the antlerless deer tag availability which includes total allocation, tags sold, and antlerless tags remaining by WMU.

 

 

Step 1: Go to the Pennsylvania Game Commission Website

 

Step 2: Click on Buy a License

 

Step 3: Click on Purchased Online link which will take you to The Outdoor Shop. For future reference, you can always bookmark this page and start directly from The Outdoor Shop.

 

Step 4: Click the top radio button labeled Purchase Fishing and/or Hunting License Permit and or Application / Replace License and or Permit. Click OK on the pop-up screen, scroll down the page, and click the Start Here Button to continue.

 

Step 5: Choose and enter your preferred method of identification, CID # (Hunting License ID Number), Drivers License Number, Social Security Number, or Alternate ID, and click continue.

 

Step 6: Verify if you’re a bona fide resident of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or a non-resident hunter.

 

Step 7: Scroll down below your information and choose the option for Check on the status of an Antlerless Deer or Elk Application and click continue.

 

Step 8: On the Lottery Application Status Page you’ll see both your Elk Lottery Information (Preference Points and Pending Elk Lottery Information) as well as that season’s Antlerless Deer Application status.

 

Here you’ll see the status of your antlerless deer application. If you’ve been awarded an antlerless deer tag, you’ll also be able to see which WMU you’ve been awarded one.

 

BONUS: If you click return to home on the Lottery Application Status Page, or navigate back to The Outdoor Store main page – you can also check the antlerless deer license availability.

 

This is both useful if you got a late start in submitting your 1st round antlerless deer tag, or if you’re curious how many antlerless deer tags remain for a particular WMU for the 2nd round of resident and non-resident antlerless deer tag applications.

Forester Lumbar 650 Pack

Professionals know when to use the right tool for the job at the right time. No one walks onto a job site with just a hammer. No mechanic opens the hood with just one size wrench. They know that every situation is different. Those situations can also change 10 times before lunch, and that’s why they go to work armed with a variety of tools so they can succeed in every situation.

The same thing is true for those who live a life outdoors. As outdoorsmen and women, we spend the vast majority of our time either hunting, fishing, or scouting.  Seasons and species that you’re chasing change and you need your equipment to change and adapt accordingly.

That’s why now, during the warmer months of the year, one of your go-to tools should be the Forester Lumbar 650 Pack from Elevation.

If you’ve ever found yourself hanging trail cams, chasing a gobbling tom, or getting to the deer stand in the early season wishing for a lightweight mobile pack – this pack is it. It allows for easy packing of your essentials along with a variety of extras that you’ll need in the field or on the go. The pack is also perfect for those warmer weather pursuits without weighing you down so you can go farther, and more comfortably into the woods.

The pack features heavy-duty and highly adjustable shoulder straps that sit comfortably on your shoulders while a waist belt with breathable foam insulation sits comfortably on your hips. The open back area allows for more airflow and breathability than your traditional pack would. This is a huge benefit while you’re on your hike or while you’re scouting and checking trail cams in the warm offseason.

The pack is armed with an astounding 650 cubic inches of storage with three main pockets on the back. Each pocket contains separate netting inside affording extra organization and storage options. There are three extra pockets on the back for quick stashing items like a water bottle, game calls, or batteries.

Two clinchable straps are also strategically placed on the bottom of the pack for storage of a jacket, decoys, bedroll, or a hunting stool. This all seasons pack is perfect for dove season right into early archery.

There are an additional six extra storage pockets on the waist belt, as well. These storage pockets are smaller and perfect for an extra can of bug spray, snacks, wallet, keys, or game calls. All of the pack’s zippers can be easily opened with their rugged and extra-wide openings so you won’t have to fumble in the dark or if you’re in a hurry.

The straps are adjustable and easily maneuvered either stationary or on the go. This makes it perfect for getting to where you need to go after just hearing that gobbler, checking your trail cameras, or if you need to adjust after putting on a jacket.

This pack is not only durable but it’s also quiet. It also stores easily and is worth way more than what you’d pay for similar products on the market. It shouldn’t come as a surprise if it becomes your go-to pack whether you’re enjoying the outdoors, getting ready for hunting season, or taking a hike with your friends and family.

You can get more information on this and other great archery packs and products by visiting the Elevation website here.

Pennsylvania Pre Rut Hunting Update and Tips

Pre Rut Hunting Tips and Tactics

What strategy are you employing when hunting late October and early November? The Pre Rut can contain some great opportunities to tag out on your target bucks or on public ground. This time of year lends itself to calling tactics, hunting over food such as white oak acorns, and hunting over scrapes. As the season transitions into early November the chase phase of the rut will begin, and hunting on pinch points and funnels will inevitably bring a shooter or two within bow range.

In this video Grant from the everyday outdoorsman breaks down his pre rut hunting strategy and some recent encounters!
