From The Shack - Ice Fishing In Alberta

It’s that wonderful time of year where the sidewalks are slippery, pipes are freezing, and everyone is looking forward to the next Chinook in a vain hopeing that the 6 inches of ice on the neighbors sidewalk may actually disappear. BUT, some of us, will be outside, slipping and sliding like goofs to get in a little bit of ice fishing.

My first attempt ice fishing with my father was a bit of a gong show. Neither of us had been ice fishing in years,  I had a vague idea of what was needed. Some form of hook and line (possibly bait if permitted), a rod or tip up (though at the time the only tip– up I remembered using was two pieces of a hockey stick nailed into a cross that fit over the hole) and uneven chairs sitting on the ice, in snow pants, getting cold quite quickly. My dad pulled out a 40 year old hand auger, that he swore drilled through the ice like butter– then again anything is faster than hacking away with an axe right? Well maybe anything with the exception of that old ice auger.  If you’re ever in Bass Pro Shops, Rocky View you can see that auger in our antique display (sometimes they don't make them like they used to for a reason.).

With much trial and error, sometimes forgetting half the gear at home, and after coming away skunked more times then I’d like to admit, we managed to get the hang of it and pulled out a few really nice sized fish.

Things I’ve learned:

· Have a sharp auger– a hand auger will do as long as the blade is sharp. To be fair the 40 year old hand auger drilled through a little over 5 feet of ice in about 5 minutes...Although after the first hole, someone with a gas auger felt sorry for us and came and drilled us a couple holes in mere seconds.

· Research where you’re going– the internet is a plethora of information. If your going somewhere you have never been, a topographic map and hints of where people are catching will always help.

· Look for ice reports!!! I cannot stress this one enough, I always do a little poking around to try and find out ice thickness before I go out. If someone had to belly crawl to get off the ice because it was so thin, you wont catch me anywhere near that lake. 6-12” is usually when I will walk out onto the lake, no amount of fishing is worth falling into the freezing water; keeping a pair of ice picks in your pocket just in case is also highly advisable.

· Test the ice– when you walk out, drill a test hole to see for yourself how thick the ice is. Never drive out unless you’re sure the ice is thick enough: Insurance will not cover your vehicle if it goes through the ice, and you have to pay to get it out (not cheap) and you can be fined just to add monetary injury to your  already insulted ego.  Remember just because you see a small car on the ice does not mean it is thick enough for your truck.

This year the ice froze funny, lots of snow too soon. In a lot of places there’s a good foot of slush on top on the ice,  In some cases flood water, it’s really easy to get stuck and even if you’re walking, falling into the slush means cold ice water in the boots.  To put it into perspective, we got an Argo stuck in the slush (full story upon request)  If that can get stuck, so can your vehicle.

 

 · Know  The species in the lake, and what you want to target– For perch, small jigs with maggots or meal worms are always the ticket, if you think the hook is small, it’s probably not small enough. Pike– rattle baits, or smelts/minnows. Walleye-jigs with worms/ minnows/small smelt,bucktail jigs. Burbot– jigs with smelts/raw meat/Anything stinky, jigging lures, and my personal preference buzz bombs with a bit of bait. White fish– Wire worms with a couple maggots on hook.. Trout-Small jigging lures or jigs with or without bait.

· Extra clothes– if you fall in, at least you’ll have something dry to change into.

· People food– even if you’re planning to fry up some fish on the ice bring something anyways, just in case you don't catch anything.

· And the last, and my favorite part, take good company. My favorite thing about ice fishing is going out and spending time with my dad.  So go outside, and enjoy winter, because we live in Canada and have plenty of it!!!!!

Realtree Camo Patterns

Do you know your RealTree Camo Patterns?

There is camo for every season of hunting to every terrain! 

 

Here are all the different types of RealTree Camo!

 

camo

Real tree Xtra

The Xtra in Realtree Xtra stands for extra effectiveness in the field. This new camo pattern blends perfectly year round in a variety of habitats. It blends best from the leaf change of fall through winter, then again in early spring before green-out.

Using proprietary printing technology, we layer sharp foreground elements over a progressively ghosted mid-ground and very soft background. The versatile new camo design includes tree trunks, large and small limbs, leaves of many types and colors, and large open areas.

camo

 

 

Real tree Xtra Green

Named for its extra effectiveness, Realtree Xtra Green camo is the best early-season pattern on the market. Use it from early fall bow hunting, muzzle loading and gun seasons until the leaves change, and then again from mid to late spring. It’s also perfect any time the season or situation calls for green camo.

Proprietary printing technology creates 3 distinct layers of pattern. The pattern combines leaves, colors, open areas, and extreme contrast in a multi directional design that blends with nearly any green habitat. Realtree Xtra Green camo provides ultimate versatility.

 

camo

Real Tree AP (Formerly AP HD)

Realtree AP camo is neutral, open, contrasty, and realistic. Everything a hunting camo needs to be versatile and effective.

Plus, we’ve improved our already advanced High Definition printing process so the pattern also stands up to the real-life effects of nature and your washing machine and holds its contrast. The AP means all purpose. We’re certain you’ll agree it lives up to its name.

camo

 

 

Real Tree APG

Realtree APG  is lighter, more open, more neutral-toned, and more contrasty than the competition. It’s an ideal turkey hunting camo. The pattern is like Realtree AP, but with olive green accents added. Realtree APG camo offers even more concealment options in early fall and spring.

And Realtree APG  is printed with our industry-leading High Definition imaging process, so it melts into hardwoods, pine thickets, prairies, river bottoms and other environments. No matter where or when you hunt, trust Realtree APG  to deliver the kind of season and region versatility you demand.
 

camo

Realtree AP  Blaze orange

Realtree AP Blaze orange camo offers the perfect combination of color and camouflage. It’s the ideal hunter orange camo for deer season. The blaze orange camo effectively reveals hunters to other humans, while concealing them from the color-blind eyes of deer.

camo

 

 

 

Realtree AP Snow Camo

With Realtree AP  Snow camouflage you’ll be ready when that monster buck appears in range. The weather outside can be frightful, but you’ll be ready with white camo that’s designed to work. Wearing Realtree AP  Snow camouflage, you can become one with the snowy landscape.

camo

 

Realtree Max-1

Realtree Max-1 camo lets hunters in broad terrain melt into their surroundings. Max-1 camo combines the perfect balance of neutral earth tones, prairie grasses, brush, rock, sage and open zones—with just a hint of shadow detail for added depth and realism. Use the versatile Realtree Max-1 camo pattern as your go-to for hunting sage-covered hillsides, mesquite flats, croplands and wide-open prairies. Also choose it for deserts and rocky terrain. Realtree Max-1  is the one to wear for hunting mule deer, whitetail, pronghorn, elk, bighorn and turkey. It’s an ideal predator hunting camo, too.
Formerly Advantage Max-1
 

camo

 

Realtree Max-4

Realtree Max-4  wetlands camo is one of the most successful duck hunting camo patterns ever designed. It is the culmination of Bill Jordan’s years of experience creating and marketing camo designs. The Max-4 camo design features cattails, millet, oak and maple leaves, cedar and oak limbs, and a variety of other plant life. The pattern offers maximum effectiveness as waterfowl camo in any open terrain—without geographical limitations. It is the largest camo artwork on the market. Formerly Advantage Max-4

camo

Realtree Hardwoods HD Camo

Realtree Hardwoods HD  Camo is a “season and region” option hunters asked for, and we delivered. The ultra-realistic pattern is effective and versatile.

camo

 

Advantage Timber camo

Advantage Timber camo offers lifelike color reproduction, unmatched definition, exceptional contrast and excellent 3D effects. It’s an ideal deer hunting camo. With more leaf colors than any other camo, Advantage Timber camo is a realistic and effective timber camo for a wide range of habitats for deer, elk, turkey, and duck. Whether you hunt from a tree or the ground, Advantage Timber camo works in any wooded setting.

 

camo

 

Realtree Advantage Classic

The features of Realtree Advantage Classic camo match an incredible variety of terrains. At a distance, the pattern breaks up the hunter’s outline. And up close, it blends with almost any natural setting, whether worn in a stand or on the ground.

The pattern is an excellent choice in any hunting season and situation.

October National Wild Turkey Federation Month

National Wild Turkey Federation Month

October $2 Donation Month

The Future of Turkey Hunting ... Help keep it Alive

 

NWFT is a conservation partner with Bass Pro Shops, NWFT is one of six such non-profit conservation organizations that Bass Pro Shops supports with a variety of initiatives.

 During October in this in-store donation month, we highlight the organization and allow them access to our customers for both memberships into their organization as well as donations at the registers. Every generous donation that you make at the registers impacts a positive influence in environmental and habitat restoration programs throughout the Canada.

 

100% of $2.00 donations that you make at Bass Pro Shops benefits NWFT.

 

To help you come more familiar to this amazing Federation here is some information that you may not know:

Who Are We?

  • We are sportsmen, women and children who care deeply about our natural resources and the wild places we love to hunt.

    We cherish the memory of the ridge top gobbler we hunted last spring and fondly remember the cornfield where we saw that big buck at sunset two years ago.

Collectively, we come from all walks of life to engage in conservation and preserve the hunting heritage we all hold dear.

We're hunters...

Some of us follow bird dogs through waving stands of grass from south Georgia to Montana in pursuit of bobwhite quail and pheasant.

And most of us would rather spend a bitterly cold winter morning knee deep in a flooded oak flat or beaver pond than waste that morning in a warm bed.

... champions of conservation.

According to many state and federal agencies, the restoration of the wild turkey is arguably the greatest conservation success story in North America's wildlife history.

Through vital partnerships with state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies, the NWTF and our members have helped restore wild turkey populations throughout North America, spending more than $412 million to conserve nearly 17.25 million acres of habitat.

That area is larger than the state of West Virginia.

Wild turkeys and hundreds of other species of upland wildlife, including quail, deer, grouse, pheasant and songbirds, have benefited from this improved habitat.

QDMA

The Future of Deer Hunting

 

QDMA is a conservation partner with Bass Pro Shops, QDMA is one of six such non-profit conservation organizations that Bass Pro Shops supports with a variety of initiatives.

 During September in this in-store donation month, we highlight the organization and allow them access to our customers for both memberships into their organization as well as donations at the registers.

To help you come a little more familiar with what the QDMA does and what they are:

The QDMA's mission is to ensure the future of white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat and our hunting heritage.

Who they are:QDMA

Membership in the QDMA is open to anyone with an interest in the wise management of white-tailed deer. The time has come for all deer hunting enthusiasts, regardless of their choice of weapon or hunting technique, to unite and focus on the common thread that binds them all together - the love of deer hunting and the desire that future generation will be able to experience the great tradition of deer hunting.

What they do:

Quality Deer Management (QDM) is a management philosophy/practice that unites landowners, hunters, and managers in a common goal of producing biologically and socially balanced deer herds within existing environmental, social, and legal constraints. This approach typically involves the protection of young bucks (yearlings and some 2.5 year-olds) combined with an adequate harvest of female deer to maintain a healthy population in balance with existing habitat conditions and landowner desires. This level of deer management involves the production of quality deer (bucks, does, and fawns), quality habitat, quality hunting experiences, and, most importantly, quality hunters.

QDMA new membership benefits

  • A subscription to Quality Whitetails (six issues per year)
  • Discounts on QDMA merchandise and deer management equipment
  • Opportunities to participate in a QDMA Branch and attend deer management seminars and short courses
