Cale MyersCale Myers is the youngest hunter you’ll ever meet.

The Edwardsburg, Mich. tyke tips the bathroom scales at 48 pounds - on a good day - and is still too young to start the first grade.

Yet he killed two deer on back-to-back days.

With a muzzleloader.

I know what you’re thinking. His dad probably held the gun for him and stood behind the young boy when he pulled the trigger, bracing him from the recoil, right?

Nope. Dad was running a video camera next to him. Pops handed him the gun, the boy placed the barrel between shooting sticks, put a bead on the deer and pulled the trigger.

By himself.

Both times.


Tami Roth and a Nice MuskieSerious muskie fishermen are a lot like bass and walleye experts. They believe a sophisticated approach trumps simple tactics when it comes to catching fish.

That doesn’t seem to be the case for Tami Roth and her boyfriend Kevin Overley of Zionsville, Ind. who enjoy fishing Lake Webster several times a year.

You could call them muskie neophytes, yet they’ve had some pretty good success.

Take last April, for instance. Tami’s first muskie – a 42 incher – came on a tadpole.
