Bass Pro Shops outdoor world tips for October HARRIERS
TRICKS TO TRY FOR FALL BASS
Begin an October bass fi sh-
ing day with spinnerbaits and
jerkbaits. These do a good job
of locating active bass and al-
low you to cover lots of water.
Many bass fi shermen have it in
their heads that topwater baits
are only good when the water
is warm. Believe me, they do
catch bass in October.
Some of the best are those
that imitate a wounded fi sh
thrashing around on the surface
of the water. The best way to
fi sh buzzbaits in October is to
retrieve them only fast enough
to keep them on the surface. On
the days when cooler water tem-
peratures cause bass to be less
active, they won’t chase a mov-
ing lure. If the bass aren’t hit-
ting quick-moving baits, tie on
a tube jig and make short casts
to specifi c areas that hold bass.
Clumps of vegetation are good,
as are stumps and boat docks.
HIDING FROM FALL TURKEYS
Most hunters think the best
way to get a turkey is busting up
a fl ock and trying to call them
back in within range. While that
does work at times, hiding is an-
other way to bag a bird. Flocks
of turkeys often roost on hard-
wood ridges near crop fi elds in

the fall.
On windy mornings, look and
listen for turkeys on the leeward
sides of hills or in the heads of
hollows. Get in the woods plen-
ty
early and set up between the
fl ock and a food source, such as
acorns, a cornfi eld or a pasture
fi lled with grasshoppers. Listen
for the hen’s tree yelping and
clucking. A tom might even cut
loose a half-hearted gobble or
jakes might purr aggressively.
Most importantly, listen for the
sound of turkeys fl ying down.
A bunch of turkeys heading
for breakfast might not come
to your calls, but a curious tur-
key or two might stray right by
where you’re hidden.
BEING UNORGANIZED CAN COST
YOU A DEER
Don’t be disorganized when
that trophy deer approaches.
There are thousands of acces-
sory options available to hunt-
ers. With all the multi-pocketed
clothing, fanny packs and day-
packs as well as the many acces-
sories for hanging them in your
blind or on your stand, it is very
easy to become disorganized.
Inventory your accessories be-
fore you head out to hunt.

times. Above all, fi nd the bait

AMAZING FACTS ABOUT WHITE-
TAILED DEER
Generally, in North America
the farther north you go, the
bigger the deer. In 1955, a 461
pound buck was shot in Maine.
In 1926 and 1981, a pair of 511
pounders was taken in Min-
nesota. A white-tailed deer can
sprint 40 miles per hour, jump
9 feet vertically and 29 feet
horizontally. A buck’s antler is
among the fastest growing tis-
sues on earth, growing as much
as a ¼ inch per day.
One out of every 2,500 ant-
lered deer taken by hunters is
a doe. The antlers are typically
small and some never lose their
velvet. These does are usually
healthy and capable of breeding.
The vast majority of bucks taken
by hunters are between 1-½ and
2-½ years old; as few as 5% of
hunted bucks are mature bucks
of 4-½ years or older. The oldest
buck on record was a tame deer
amed Henry II who lived almost
21 years. In the wild, a buck can
reach 12 years, but very few do
because of disease or predators
and especially because of hunt-
ers.

treestand or ground blind, make
sure your items are not in your
way, but within reach if you
need them. It is important to
make sure you can get to your
binoculars, rangefi nder, calls
and anything else you might
need with as little movement as
possible. Even a bow hanger in
the wrong location can get in
your way and cost you that tro-
phy buck.
FALL IS A GREAT TIME FOR FISHING
As leaves begin to change
colors and weather cools, the
outdoor enthusiast’s attention
turns to things other than fi sh-
ing. However, if you enjoy fi sh-
ing above all, fall should be
your favorite time of year. There
is no better time for catching
fi sh—especially big fi sh. Not
only are fi sh hungry and some-
times easier to catch this time of
year, but in most areas the rivers
and lakes are also less crowded
than during the spring and sum-
mer. It’s a great time to re-spool
your reels with “fresh” line so
you don’t lose a big one. As far
as baits, bigger seems to be best
because you are trying to imi-
tate bait fi sh which have grown
bigger over summer. Fall fi sh
getting ready for winter want a
mouthful.
Pay attention to the weather
and moon to make sure that
you’re on the water at the best

Gause (Sr.), Erik Cortes
(Soph.) and Justin Francis (Fr.).
Talley fi nished in 21st with a
time of 19:08; Gause set his sea-
son best with a time of 20:26,
fi nishing 33rd, while Cortes and
Francis fi nished 57th and 63rd
with times of 21:38 and 21:56,
respectively.
Considering there was a total
of 92 athletes competing, this is
one of the best fi nishes the boys’
team has done this year. Behind
the second-place Lions were
Junction City in third, Crater in
fourth and Thurston in fi fth. A
total of 10 schools competed in
the race.
Though the girls only fi nished
fourth out of the seven compet-
ing schools, there were still
some notable results coming
from the Lions.
3B
Firstly, freshman Sabrina
James fi nished in sixth place
out of 64 runners with a time of
22:20, a personal record. Junior
Savannah Davis fi nished 30th,
setting a season-best of 26:09.
Other Cottage Grove girls were
Kenzie Parsons (26:28), Kai-
tlyn Brooks (27:39), Jessica
Ray (29:52) and Allie Harris
(32:34).
The Harrier’s Challenge is
one of the largest home meets of
the year for Cottage Grove, fea-
turing over 200 runners from 10
different schools. It is also very
unique in that Schwarz Park
has varied terrain all around the
course.
“I think it’s a great competi-
tion and it’s always good for our
runners to compete on a famil-
iar course they always do great,”
Head Coach Jim Settelmeyer
said.
