Hunting and Fishing Socail Network Back Online

From Kansas to Colorado to Oklahoma!

Well to say we here at Shotem and Caughtem have been busy the last couple years is an understatement.  I moved from my home since Colorado for a couple years and now to Oklahoma.  It has been interesting to say the least and I now have the experience of finding out what other states are like to hut and fish.  Even though we were still based in the Midwest through these many moves the contrast between what is available to hunters and fisherman could not be more diverse.  Also we would like to address what has been making headlines when it comes to the decline of hunting and fishing.  There have been a lot of great articles lately on the subject but we would also like to add they missed one big reason we think it is happening.  As always we would love to here your views on the subject.  Here are a couple of the articles we have been seeing all lends to a good read as to some options to help lessen the decline.

Shotem And Caughtem Season is Here

Yes ladies and gentlemen it has finally arrived.  Since we at Shotem and Caughtem will be preparing our gear and equipment tomorrow for the weekends festivities this will be the last blog till we come back from the field next week.  We will be headed out for our favorite hunting season which is the kick off to the rest of the hunting bragging season, Dove Season Baby!  It is also still warm enough in our area that fishing season is still decent but is quickly going to start winding down.  

Dependent on where you might be heading this weekend the fishing should be decent.  It is definitely towards the end of catching season but the fish still seem to be biting.  Reports we read from around the nation point to pretty slow fishing with the majority saying their catches are coming in very early in the morning or close to dark.  However, most reports show that their catches are down to about 35% of what they were during peak season.  Major lakes of course will be busy with the vacation traffic so back coves and untouched streams will offer the best fishing versus main channels.

Hunting season will begin Sept 1 and go into full swing through the next couple of weeks.  Teal season also opens at the end of next week in most places as well as snipe and rail.  Waterfowl season as well as deer bow season are also quickly on their way.

This should give most outdoorsman and woman a great reason to get out and enjoy the weather as fishing season comes to a break and hunting season turns full swing.  We hope you share your hunting party photos to the gear galleries and your trophies to the Shotem gallery and share your stories.  As always you can leave us a line in the comment section below.  Happy Shotem and Caughtem Labor Day to all!
