Next week, I am going to spend several nights on some lake in my camp-boat and hunt turkeys. I intend to take a long my johnboat to use for fishing. I will set a trotline, hunt mushrooms and arrowheads, and pretty rocks, catch bass etc. I may ignore crappie because I catch all of them, I want in late April and May at night under lights…and white bass and walleye too. Now do any of you have any better plans than that? It is social distancing at its best.
Each spring, state-endangered greater prairie-chickens make their way to the leks (breeding grounds) at The Nature Conservancy’s Dunn Ranch Prairie in northwestern Missouri to meet a mate. This year and in celebration of Earth Day, TNC is making the bird’s unique dance and booming calls available for the public by offering a live stream from the prairie.
