Michigan: DNR Requests Assistance in Containing Fish Virus Outbreak

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is requesting the assistance of anglers and the bait industry in containing the recent outbreak of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSv) in the St. Clair River/Lake Erie corridor so it doesn’t spread to other waters.

Cold water temperatures are allowing VHSv to continue to affect fish from the St. Clair River to Lake Erie.

“Water temperatures continue to be well below 65 degrees Fahrenheit, creating conditions that allow for VHSv to keep spreading in the fish community,” said Gary Whelan, DNR Fisheries Division research program manager. “Extended forecasts indicate temperatures will continue to be cool, so we need to make sure anglers and the baitfish industry are aware of actions they can take to help prevent the spread of VHSv to new waters outside of this corridor.”

Anglers are asked to refrain from harvesting minnows for personal use within the borders of St. Clair, Macomb, Wayne and Monroe counties until further notice from the DNR. Those who fish should not move any live fish between water bodies and dispose of bait properly after use. Boaters should make sure their bilges and live wells are emptied prior to leaving a boat launch and all equipment is cleaned and disinfected after use. Read more

THE ALL-NEW CARBONLITE GHOST 420 IS BARNETT’S FASTEST CROSSBOW EVER

TARPON SPRINGS, FL (May 22, 2017) – Today’s crossbows are a far cry from the very first modern crossbow Mr. Bernard Barnett crafted in his garage in the U.K. in 1962. And they’re simply worlds away from those used by hunters and soldiers in medieval times. The modern hunting crossbow is smaller, lighter, smoother, faster and easier to use than ever before. It’s no wonder hoards of traditional bow hunters and firearms hunters are flocking to the crossbow to unlock new hunting opportunities and experiences.

Experienced hunters understand the value of premium-quality top-performing firearms and compound bows. They’ve tried the rest and have invested in the best. For this caliber of hunter looking to purchase his or her first crossbow – or the existing crossbow hunter seeking the ultimate in speed, quality and performance – the all-new Barnett Ghost 420 was created to exceed their expectations.

One of three premium crossbows in Barnett’s elite Carbonlite Series, the standout Ghost 420 is Barnett’s fastest crossbow ever. Featuring a full carbon step-through riser and a machined aluminum flight track to minimize weight while stalking or patiently waiting for the shot on stand, the Ghost 420 boasts a 185-pound draw weight capable of sending an arrow flying at a blistering 420 feet per second.

But lightness, balance and speed are just the beginning. Read more
