  • Dec 16, 2001 at 12:00AM updated Jul 3, 2008 at 6:20PM

For a great deal of anglers, the fantastic fishing seasons have come to a close. While some may have a craft large enough to handle the rough waters of winter, and a few use their smaller boats for open water duck hunting, many boats have seen their last days afloat for the next couple of months. With hunting and fishing seasons coming to an end, you can use the extra time to do a couple of little things that will ensure your boat is ready when the water warms and the fish again become active.

FINS, FUR & FEATHERS Winter days ideal for cleaning guns

  • Dec 8, 2001 at 12:00AM updated Jul 3, 2008 at 6:19PM

For most of us the big game seasons are over. A few got real lucky and tagged a real wall-hanger. Others were satisfied with putting some quality wild game into their freezers, while others were pleased with just being able to get out and enjoy the outdoors (at least this is what Jerry Goen uses when he is stuck with tag soup). Year after year many hunters do exactly that. They may run a swab or brush through the barrel, and then they leave it until it is time to get ready for their annual trek into the autumn woods. Year after year, many hunters also make gunsmiths busy with repairs that could have been prevented with some easy post-hunt maintenance. After the hunt is over, there is no rush to get things done. This “slow time” is the ideal time to do a thorough inspection on your big game rig. Hunting the slick forests, many a hunter has slipped or fallen. While you may think you caught your balance in the nick of time, you may have dinged your rifle. Take the time to go over every inch of your gun. Check the stock for warping, cracks or hairline fractures. Check from buttplate to forend. With many of the synthetic stocks, these minor imperfections will not be a problem, but with a fine piece of walnut, a little crack can turn into a major overhaul if not caught early.

If the announcement of the WesCo North Division all-conference football team is any indication, the Oak Harbor Wildcats have a lot to look forward to next season.

Though they lose some key players to graduation, they will also return a solid corps of players who saw plenty of action and will put it to good use in 2002.
