Talking Turkey: Which Turkey Call Should You Choose?

If turkey hunting is on your agenda then you finding a turkey call could help you on your hunt. Let’s be honest, there is no one turkey call that works every single time to attract turkeys in. If there was, there wouldn’t be so many different calls out there. However, what you will find is hunters, each who swear by a different call device. If you don’t have a favorite, that’s okay, too. Actually, it is better because you open yourself up to trying all the calls out to find out what works for you. If you are looking for calls, there are three popular options. Of course, these three options – the box, pot and striker, and diaphragm calls – are popular because they produce results. So what sets them apart? Box Call There are a number of different models of box calls out there, but the old paddle-shaped […]

Memorable Fishing Trips

It’s 5 o’clock in the morning. You are standing on the porch of a lake-view rental at Caddo or Livingston, a bucket of minnows in one hand, fishing pole in the other. A cool mist is floating in from the water, tendrils of it already starting to burn off in the breaking summer dawn.

You are king of your vacation castle on a perfect Saturday morning, strolling to the dock where you can hear the gentle wet plops of surfacing fish reaching for colorful dragonflies. It’s good to be the king. The most memorable fishing trip is one that matches your personality.

Five Essential Knots for Fishing Trips

Tying a proper knot is the difference between catching a trophy bass or telling a story about the one that got away. Losing a fish due to a poor knot is heartbreaking and can ruin a fishing trip, but it is preventable with these five essential knots. Palomar Knot:  This is one of the most widely used knots by anglers, and for good reason. Few knots are as secure as the Palomar, and it is a great knot to use on braided or monofilament line. San Diego Jam Knot:  Another widely used knot that is comparable to the Palomar is the San Diego Jam knot. Also known as the Reverse Clinch or Heiliger knot, it is reliable, strong and quick. Trilene Knot: The Trilene knot is great for securing artificial lures. Lures are expensive, so a strong knot like the Trilene prevents spending money on replacement lures. Blood Knot:  The […]

Fishing Trips Are a Great Way to Get Kids Involved in Outdoor Sports

Fishing has been a fun family bonding experience for generations. Adults often find it relaxing and nostalgic. Kids love the thrill of catching a fish all by themselves. It gets families outdoors and connecting with the natural world in a unique way while making lasting memories. Getting children involved, however, does come with challenges. Much of the hassle and difficulty can be spared by remembering a few key things: Know the equipment and technique ahead of time. If you’re a seasoned angler, no worries. But if it’s been a while since you wetted a line, spend some time reviewing your gear. Simpler is better when it comes to novice anglers, especially kids. The time-tested worm and bobber is a fine place to start and panfish are the perfect introductory species. Once your young anglers gain some experience and confidence, moving up to lures isn’t hard. Floating lures are a good […]

Custom Metal Fabrication & Welding

Hunters that are after big game and use feeders are increasingly finding that they are are attracting the wrong kind of animal. Wild hogs are a nuisance, damaging to whitetails and can destroy cheap feeders. The Outpost offers custom metal fabrication feeders that will stop feral hogs from carrying off your bait. Because the feeders are metal, the hogs cannot do much damage to them. We make extremely sturdy feeders. Wild hogs quickly learn that they can rock against the limbs of a cheap feeder to tip it over or knock feed out of the barrel. Our feeders, with heavy angle iron or box iron legs, are proof against shaking and impacts from even the biggest boars.   If you have other custom feeder or deer blind needs, we’re ready to talk to you. Just fill out this form and tell us your what you’re looking for. Someone will be in touch.

How Wind Speed and Direction Affects Hunting

Ask any seasoned hunter and he or she will agree: wind speed and direction play a critical role in hunting. When you’re 30+ feet up in a tree stand, a strong gust of wind can make the air feel cooler. But wind speed and direction affect other elements of hunting, as well. Slows Deer Movement Ever notice how there are fewer deer moving on windy days? This is because wind speed affects their movement. Tim Walmsley, an Illinois hunter and whitetail expert, says strong winds are the “kiss of death.” This doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t see a single whitetail when it’s windy. Rather, the wind makes deer less active, minimizing your chances of scoring a trophy buck. Moves Your Scent Of course, the wind can carry your scent, raising the alarm to nearby deer. To overcome this problem, some hunters choose hunting areas with natural protection from the wind, […]
