During this hunt period, 131 state hunters harvested elk (46 bulls, 72 cows and 13 calves), and one Pure Michigan Hunt winner harvested a bull.
While the early elk season is designed to target elk outside of their traditional range, the late elk season is used to manage overall elk numbers, including those in the core elk management area. In total, hunters in hunt periods 1 and 2 harvested 214 elk, and all three Pure Michigan Hunt winners harvested bulls.
Due to the ongoing public health emergency and associated limits on large gatherings, B.A.S.S. officials announced Thursday that the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk and Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo originally scheduled for late March would be moved to June 11-13, 2021.
As the Ned rigging technique has developed, so has the creativity of anglers in applying it. Strike King has expanded Ned rig offerings to include the Tour Grade Weedless Ned Head.

If you’re a walleye angler and haven’t fished Lake of the Woods near Bremen, Ind., you should.
The lake has a good population of keeper-size walleyes, according to Indiana District Fisheries Biologist Tom Bacula.
Bacula was there last fall doing a standard evaluation of the walleye population.
“It’s something we do every year to check the stocking success of that season,” he said. “We didn’t stock last year (because of covid) but we wanted to see how the lake was doing.”
And doing quite fine, he added.
“Oh, man, we found a lot of walleyes,” he said. “And a lot of legal ones, too.”
