Women Bowhunters – Starting the right way

Tammy has been bowhunting for 40 years and on Mathews pro staff for 22 yrs. Once an anti-hunter, she cut her teeth on bowhunting at a time when very few women would even attempt the sport. A self-taught bowhunter, she has overcome many obstacles along the way. As a result, she has the inside track on what works when teaching a woman not only to shoot, but to become a successful bowHUNTER. Tammy's passion for the sport is contagious. She has been a part of the Outdoor television industry for 17+ years as a professional hunter on several outdoor shows including AdventureBound Outdoors, Mathews TV, Hunters Journal (Outdoor Channel) and her own television show Leading Ladies Outdoors (Sportsman Channel) Tammy has built a 5,000 Sq Ft Lodge dedicated solely to teaching bowhunting classes in Northcentral Wisconsin with a 35 x 45 classroom and 3 archery ranges on a 145 acres of extended classroom where she teaches about everything from tree stands & food plots to shot placement & interpreting blood trails.

"Bowhunting is the most fascinating game you can become a part of. To figure out a big game animals next move results in a match of wits that is constantly intriguing, mentally challenging and ultimately one of the most rewarding things you will ever do."

River Fishing for Smallmouth

Sunday, March 18th, Noon
Walleye: Western WI Tactics and Strategies

Smallmouth bass are one of the most sought-after gamefish in the United States. MN and WI are fortunate enough to be home to many of the best smallmouth bass resources in North America. Smallmouth bass can be caught in many different types of environments on a wide variety of presentations. Smallies are plentiful, amazing fighters, and are an excellent target species for anglers of all skill levels who are looking to have an action-packed day on the water. When smallmouth are in the right mood, days of many large fish delivering reckless strikes can be had; and such days are more common on rivers and streams than any other type of smallmouth environment. Armed with basic knowledge of rivers and streams, skills in a few prime tactics, and a simple affordable selection of tackle; just about anyone can go out and have a great day of fishing. Those attending "River Smallmouth, Tactics and Opportunities" will have access to all the knowledge they need to experience this amazing fishing on their own and close to home.

Successful walleye fishing in Western WI is often challenging due to heavy fishing pressure; which not only reduces walleye populations, but also educates fish making them tackle shy and warier of human presence. This combination creates walleyes with less feeding competition that are less likely to strike presentations. Walleyes under such conditions are often tough to catch, but with special consideration and planning, steady action can be had. Local walleye populations are still strong enough to provide quality action for numbers of fish with available trophy potential as well.

Walleye: Western WI Tactics and Strategies will include information on several subjects including:
  • The dynamics of different walleye habitats and individual populations, and how these affect seasonal behaviors and effective strategies
  • Choosing the best water body for each outing based on daily and seasonal conditions. Scouting new bodies of water for more rapid success and scouting familiar bodies of water to anticipate future walleye location as the season progresses
  • Tailoring tackle selection to individual environments and specific walleye fishing goals; such as trophy fishing, trying to catch a meal of eater size walleyes, or specific tackle for finicky highly pressured walleyes
  • Finally, the seminar is rounded out with a discussion of specific prime Western WI walleye fishing opportunities to take advantage of throughout the year

Outdoor Women: Introducing your Family to the Outdoors

I was raised hunting. It's a part of all that I do. My name is Trisha Steffen and I have been roaming through the woods and wild since I was old enough to leave the yard.

Sharing my love of the Outdoors is a passion of mine. When you love a pastime, hobby, and for many of us, way of life; it's only natural to want to share it with those you love and are close to you.

Sometimes these first adventures go well, but sometimes they don’t. I have taken many people on their first outdoor adventures; some willing and some not so much. Through experience and a little trial and error I have learned some ways to make the first Outdoor experiences more enjoyable for all involved. I am happy to share these tips and help make these first experiences positive memories - and a first of many new firsts to come.
I am a Wisconsin native born in southern Wisconsin and moved to north-cental Wisconsin as soon as I graduated from High School. My outdoor passions include bowhunting, goose hunting, sturgeon spearing, and trapping. My family and I base our plans for the year around hunting season and have grown to include our children in all that we do.

I work with several companies as Pro Staff including Limbsaver, DLC Covert Scouting Cameras, Lumenok, and am also a Field Correspondent for Ultimate Outdoors Radio. I have appeared on episodes of Outdoor Bound TV, co-produced and hosted episodes about Sturgeon Spearing and Maple Syrup Production.

Targeting Crappies and Walleyes Throughout the Season

Mike Gate grew up on Lake of the Woods in Canada and began his Fish Guiding career at the young age of 13. He's a trained Commercial Float Plane Pilot since 1993. On his days off or evenings he continues to guide fishermen. In 2012, Mike and his wife Erin purchased a fishing resort on Lake of the Woods in Nestor Falls, ON Canada. Mike has been lucky enough to join the Pro-Staff of Outdoor Bound TV with host Kurt Walbeck and you may have also seen his face in a few issues of In-Fisherman Magazine.

We will discuss patterns and the techniques used throughout the season to capitalize on trophy fish as they move from spawning all the way through their finish in the fall.
