The 2015 BREAM SPECIAL
For most of us fishermen, drowning crickets and worms for bream is where it all started. And all across Georgia, if you can find a hole of water larger than your living room, you’re apt to come across bluegills, shellcrackers, redbreasts and more in varying populations and combinations. Obviously, some of those areas are better than others when it comes to filling a stringer—and since bream fishing is at its best in May, GON has put...

Youth
1,040 Youth Compete In The 2015 NASP State Championship
It’s encouraging to see more than 1,000 youth shooters spend a day during the school week flinging arrows down range to see who is top dog. I continue to be amazed at the popularity of Georgia’s National Archery In The Schools Program (NASP) and the great job WRD has done to promote it.

In all, 1,040 youth registered to compete at the 2015 Georgia NASP State Championship held March 25 at the fairgrounds in Perry. To qualify for the state event, about 2,000 archers shot in one of eight regional tournaments, and roughly the top half of those shooters advanced to the state. This state competition has been going on since 2007.

Youth compete in one of three divisions: Elementary School (4th-5th grade), Middle School (6th-8th grade) and High School (9-12 grade). The scoring is based on Olympic-style target archery competition with all students shooting identical Mathews Genesis bows and identical Easton arrows.

Tripletail Showing Up Off Jekyll Island
There is one certainty this time of year. Well, there are many, but one of them is that the tripletail will be in the ocean off the beaches of Jekyll Island. Each year in April, the tripletail just sort of show up. No one really knows where they come from or how far they travel, but biologists tell us that they migrate here each year.

These hard-fighting fish resemble an oversized...

GON's Tracking Dogs & Deer Coolers Lists
Here's GON's 2014-2015 Dial-a-Tracking Dog and Deer Coolers lists. Some folks have dropped off the lists this year, but there are some new faces, as well. If you have a deer down, these lists should provide everything you need to find it and get it to a cooler for storage or processing.
