Terry Wickstrom Outdoors Hour 2: 8/5/17

Nate Zelinsky joins the show to tell Terry & the listeners that when it comes to hunting season, education is key. Nate gives some pointers on how you can land a slam dunk as elk season enters it's peak. Nate says know where the animals are at, and put a major emphasis on finding every animal. Once you find the animals, Nate suggests breaking it down into patterns where they are migrating to & eating at. Then come the fine-tuned minute systems & water/bedding times and areas. Nate mentions the importance of putting yourself in front of the animal when they are at their most vulnerable, and knowing when to make the decision to back off & learn more about the animal. Kirk Deeter joins the show to give Terry some of his favorite tips from his latest book, including keeping your feet dry & the chances at catching fish 90 feet from shore. Terry mentions casting, and Kirk agrees it's not the most important thing, the presentation just has to be floating the right way when it lands in the water. Terry asks Kirk where to find a copy of his book & about the good causes it's supporting, and Kirk talks about his favorite time of the year fishing in Colorado. Kirk highlights the Colorado River & Roaring Fork, and terrestrial & big streamer fishing. Also, whether or not there is simply too much going on this time of year to keep up with, including chasing white bass & wipers with flies.  Ronny Castiglioni joins the show to talk about catching & harvesting white bass, and the ways to fish for them, including on the surface. Electronics are a big deal if the fish is not showing itself on the surface, and Ronny mentions when white bass park themselves on the bottom & when to work a blade-bait. Ronny likes little white power grubs for white bass on the bottom, and crank baits for those in the middle of the water column. Also, Ronny says his favorite is when the fish are pushing the bait to the surface, and you can see them from nearly a mile out.
