Have you ever wondered about those shiny metal bands you'll see some waterfowl hunters sporting around their neck?  Shooting a "banded bird" is a pretty rare thing - but what is that band all about? You might be surprised!
Our friends at Ducks Unlimited break it down....

We know that deer will dine in apple orchards, corn fields and in green fields of alfalfa, but you would be wise to learn how to identify oak trees, because they are a huge food source for whitetails and other wildlife. Click here to get a ton of great info on identifying - and hunting over - this powerful wildlife food source.

Plus here's a hunting trick the author suggested: "Whenever I hunt over acorns, I always carry a few small rocks in my pocket. When acorns are thick on the ground, deer have little trouble finding them, but it’s rarely that easy. Deer quickly learn to listen for the sound of an acorn hitting the carpet of leaves below. When they hear the “plop” of an acorn, they wander over to find it. I’ve seen young deer race each other to the site of a falling acorn. A stone sounds just like an acorn when it falls to the leaves."
Turkey Hunting Expert, Joel Nelson, shares some tips he's learned on using his time in the deer stand during the whitetail bow season to scout for turkeys in autumn...

Talking about treestands..... Outdoor News JPT Coach and Virtual Mentor, Brody Boese, has some important tips on treestand safety in the video below!

OHHH... that could have been bad... Check out what happens in Coach Brody's video and get the scoop on treestand placement tips too!
 Hang out with Outdoor News Junior Pro Team Coach and Virtual Mentor Brody Boese at 2021 Game Fair held at Armstrong Ranch Kennels in Ramsey, Minnesota. From the Outdoor News booth, and the scoop on how you can get a FREE pass to the Minnesota Deer & Turkey Classic with your Outdoor News subscription, to a visit with Josh Miller at the SportDOG® Brand booth by the lakeside demo area, join Brody to find out what he discovered. Game Fair is THE place to be for sport dog owners, and the competitions for retrievers, dock dogs and all things sporting dog related where exciting to see. Brody stopped by and had a chat with Lucas Adamski at the Beavertail -DOA Decoy booth. Lucas showed off the hot new Dominator Decoy series, the full body Canada goose decoys that are 20% larger than before, plus their Teal decoys - perfect for the new Minnesota Teal Hunt Season. (If you missed out on Game Fair, you can still visit to check out all
their waterfowl and outdoor gear) Coach Brody took a cruise up to Waterfowlers Hill and caught up with Champion Waterfowl Caller, Nick Johnson, at the Pacific Calls booth where Nick gives Outdoor News Junior Pro Team members some expert advice on how to choose the right goose or duck call, and tips on the best way to learn to correctly replicate real birds and hone your calling skills for greater success during the waterfowl season. Nick also let us in on his new line of Canada Goose calls that are now available through Pacific Calls too. Have you ever seen a dog fly? Brody got some epic footage of athletic canines competing in events such as the "Long Jump" off the docks, the "Scurry", "Goose Hunt" and "Obstacle Course" dog events held during the 2021 Game Fair. Were you at Game Fair this year? You might just see yourself in this video too! Coach Brody swung by the youth activities and games, including the Sling Shot, Archery and Shooting Instructions with
Minnesota Firearms and the Minnesota Rifle Club. If you missed out on the 2021 Game Fair, be sure to visit for details on future events.
