Archery Season opens in Minnesota, I’m not ready yet!

Fall in Minnesota can be a busy time for most of us. Getting the cabin ready for winter, putting away the grill and…oh yes…. Hunting season!

If your to-do list at home is cutting into your Bow hunting time, why not enlist the help of Archery expert Jared Hoefs at Smokey Hills in Park Rapids. He has years of experience helping customers select, setup and use a new bow correctly. We can even get all your arrows cut while you wait or replace your old worn out strings.

With brands like PSE and Bear archery that have hundreds of accessories from sights to drop-away-rests, we are sure to have what you are looking for.

Recent changes in Crossbow regulations (Persons over 60 years of age, now qualify to use a crossbow) have helped hundreds of people get back into archery again. Maybe an injury or father time kept you away from enjoying Archery ,now that can change.

One of our most popular models is PSE Vang Crossbow, the Complete package retails for $399.99. We will even help you get it setup and take a couple practice shots, so you can get familiar with it.

If that’s not enough, let’s not forget about fall fishing. Anyone brave enough will be rewarded with some of the best walleye fishing of the season. So don’t waste time selecting the right lure and bait, when Josh in the fishing department is doing all the hard work for you with his Fishing Report

Park Rapids Fishing Report 9/18/16 to 9/24/16
Walleye -Swimming the deeper waters throughout the day and moving up onto the shallow flats in 12’-16’ of water through the evening hours. Tie up a Northland “Pro Walleye Micro Blade Spinner or Crawler harness” mostly pairing them with a rainbow minnow or crawler.
Northern Pike – Sitting in the shallows from 8’-12’ of water looking for the smaller fish or minnow to swim by. Tie on an Acme “Little Cleo” to imitate a fish or minnow, helping to entice a trophy northern to strike during the fall bite!
Bass – Slowly moving up to the shallows from 6’-12’ around the taller weeds, deeper docks, and lily pads looking for that easy prey. Start off by putting a bullet weight on the line then tying a VMC “Heavy duty wide gap” hook to the end. Rig up a YUM “Vibra King Tube” on the hook and mimic a crawfish retrieval.
Sunfish/Crappie – Looking for the tallest weeds or structure in 8’-12’ of water. Waiting for a Northland tackle “ Gypsy or Fire Fly Jig” Either tipped with a crappie minnow or piece of crawler to fill the limits!
