C. Mo’s Kids… Imagine if you Could not Hunt or Fish

We, as lovers of the outdoors, know the deep passion we feel about hunting and fishing.  Ok, stop what you are doing and imagine what it would feel like if you could not hunt or fish.   Hurts bad, right? Ok, now imagine a young person being able to shoot a gun,  hunt, or fish  for the first time ever!  That is what C. Mo’s Kids is all about.  These handi-abled kids have a place they can go to shoot, hunt, and participate in amazing outdoor experiences. The mission behind this important organization is to enrich the lives of special needs children by providing life-changing outdoor experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, in a safe and accommodating environment. The desire is to foster the development of self-confidence and self-reliance through the provision of outdoor adventures including hunting, fishing and camping’. How did this all start, you ask?  C. MO Bucks met a young man a couple of years ago that could talk of nothing but his desire to go hunting. This young man had cerebral palsy and even though his father was a hunter the logistics of getting this child into a blind and providing the specialized equipment needed was out of reach for his family. C. MO arranged a hog hunt and the look on this boy’s face when he took his first hog made all the extra effort worth while. C. MO’S KIDS was born! So, what can you do to help? Just visit the website: C.Mo’sKids where you can sign up to volunteer, donate,  start a new Chapter, or sponsor a child for this special program. It will make your heart feel so good to help a child enjoy what we take for granted everyday …enjoying all that the outdoors has to offer. I know… it just made my heart feel that way to donate to this wonderful organization!

It’s Summertime, Fish are Jumpin and…

It’s Summertime, Fish are Jumpin and…

Oh yeah! It’s summertime alright! But your Daddy doesn’t have to be rich nor your Mama good lookin to be successful hooking up with some fish!   Jessica with Perry’s Bait & Tackle is here to help us navigate hot weather fishing on these beautiful coastal waters! Fishing Report: Veteran Pier – Some Black Drum off Veteran Pier and the south end of Murrells Inlet in pretty good numbers – 1-10 keeper ratio. The Inlet- Few Flounder reports and some slot size Red Drum showing up on Perry’s finger mullets. Surf Fishing- Some Whiting and Croakers off the beaches.  Weakfish (Summer trout/gray trout) off ledges and the beach  in front of the Holiday Inn just north of Surfside Pier- Just remember, these trout need to be 12 inches to keep and be aware….        ONLY one per person. Shark activity off the beaches at night- Blacktip and Atlantic Shark Nose off the surf and the south end of Garden City near the sea walls. The Jetties–  Speckled Trout (winter trout) at the Murrells Inlet Jetties as well as the north end of Pawley’s Island. This is not typical this time of year and they are catching them on Perry’s live shrimp under popping corks or click clackers or vudu shrimp.  Fish the same way for  Flounder. The Pier- Just in- Breaking News!  As of yesterday, August 18th,  we are having a dissolved oxygen issue in the Inlet.  This means that the Flounder are pushing outside of the Inlet to the jetties, beaches, and pier in LARGE NUMBERS!!!!!! Jessica also indicated that any minute she is waiting for the Bull Reds to show up at our jetties and ledges. Spots also should be migrating in very soon.  So, hush little babies, don’t you cry about no fish because of the heat!  Get over to Perry’s, and talk to Jessica.  She will put you on the right bait for the right fish so you can have right good time out on the water! For those of you who love incredible photography, check out  Austin Bond Photography  for some of the most exciting photos of our beautiful coast.  “Summertime” was composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess is one of my all time favorites. This was our go to “lullaby” to sing to our babies way back when!!       Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...

Oregon  Bow Huntress – Straight To The Heart!

Oregon Bow Huntress – Straight To The Heart!

Opening day of archery bull elk and archery buck deer are less than 20 days away here in Oregon. This will be my first year bowhunting. I wanted to share some of the things that I have learned over the last year while I have been practicing and preparing for my first year bowhunting. If you are new to bowhunting, find a reputable pro-shop that has bows you can shoot. Do not buy a bow just because you like how it looks. You might not like the draw cycle or other aspects of shooting that particular bow. Whichever bow you choose, make sure that it fits YOU and feels comfortable to hold! I have been shooting a Bowtech Carbon Rose for little over a year and have recently switched over to a Bowtech Eva Shockey Signature Series. Make sure your draw length is correct! The pro-shop will have you stretch out your arms with your palms facing forward (do not overstretch). They measure from the tip of your middle finger to the other and divide that number by 2.5. For example, my measurement is 65, so my draw length is 26 inches. Another very important thing is your draw weight; make sure you check your state laws. You must meet minimum weight requirements. If your bow is too easy to pull back, increase your weight. If it is too difficult to pull back, decrease your weight. If you do not meet minimum weight requirements, remember that practice, practice, practice will build up those muscles. Sarah Bowmar has a great video on YouTube you can watch; she shows you how to increase your draw weight. My current draw weight is 47-48 pounds, but I plan to get that up to 50 pounds soon (legal archery bull elk minimum weight is 50 pounds in the state of Oregon). Make sure your anchor point is consistent. The anchor point is where your hand, release and face all meet when you are at full draw. You can have a kisser button added to help you find the correct spot, normally the corner of your mouth. Grip is another thing that needs to be consistent. Some people only have the grip touching the fleshy part of their palm and have fingers pointed out straight (not my favorite way). Another way is to have the grip touching the fleshy part of the palm and very lightly place the fingertips on the opposite side of the grip. The third way is to have the grip touching the fleshy part of the palm and having your knuckles make a 45-degree angle parallel to the grip. Choose accessories...
