Brad Bauer, Bass Pro Shops Base Camp Marketing Brand Specialist harvested this male coyote May 5th, 2017. His story & gear used:

My girlfriend and I had been hunting all morning for turkeys. I was not getting very good responses from my calls, and was ready to head back to the truck. Slowly walking through the woods, near the trailhead, my girlfriend spotted the big male coyote. He was about 30 yards away at this point. Crouching, so as to not be seen, we let the dog stay on his intended path. He came within the 20 yard mark, and I successfully dispatched him at 18 yards.

Hunting Gear Used:

Winchester Model 1300 Pump Action 12 Gauge

Winchester 3” #6 Turkey Loads

TrueTimber 1/4 Zip Pullover HTC Green

Columbia TimerWolf Pant

Bass Pro TrueTimber Kanati Hat

Rocky Boots TrueTmber HTC

Bass Pro marketing associate Jake Wittkop's  cousin Nick Findley shot this buck on the  family farm the last day of rifle season. Jake said they have worked really hard over the past 4-5 years cultivating an area in the woods to draw deer and had been tracking this guy for a couple of years. Their grandpa (the owner of the farm) was pretty happy to see the hard work pay off with this amazing buck.

Braggin' Board Photo: Missouri November Frost Flower

When do they appear?
Frost flowers occur only in late fall after the first few hard freezes and while the ground is still warm. Their season is brief, and they disappear quickly on the day they occur, melting like frost when the air warms or rays of sunlight fall on the delicate structures.

How do they form?
While the plants’ stems are ruptured by the first hard freeze, the root system is still sending up plant sap from the warmer ground. The sap pushes through the broken stem and freezes on contact with the cold air. As more saps moves up, it forces the freezing stream of white ice crystals into ornate, folded ribbons that look like petals, puffs of cotton candy, or snarls of white thread.
