When he’s not tending to his congregation at the United Pentecostal Church in Bourbon, Ind., Pastor Mark Cottrill is deer hunting.
He’s shot his share of deer during the 30-plus years he’s been hunting Indiana, but his experience Oct. 27 was one that few hunters can claim.
The Polar Bear Circuit held its third open event of the year Nov. 17 at Lake Maxinkuckee in Culver, Ind. where Tom Noe and John Gipson took home the top honors, along with over $200, for their efforts that day.
The Polar Bear Circuit held its second event of the year last Saturday at Six Span in Elkhart, and the cold wintery weather didn’t stop Floyd Wolkins and Zach McNary from taking home first place with 9.28 pounds of bass.

Fly tiers from various Fly Fishers International and Trout Unlimited Clubs from around the Great Lakes region will come together next April for the 13th annual Tie-a-thon to tie and donate flies to Camp Kita and the Mayfly Project, both of which are groups that cater to youths.
The event is being held at the Elkhart, Ind. Conservation Club, which has donated their use of their facility again. More than 113,000 flies from previous Tie-A-Thons have been donated since the first Tie-a-thon was held.
Attendance isn’t required to help out. As the Tie-a-thon has done in previous years, flies will be accepted from individuals who are willing to donate their time and materials and finished flies for this year’s two worthy causes.
