Alaska Largemouth Bass

Believe it or not, this is bad news for fishery in Alaska. 

Just about everywhere largemouth bass swim, anglers revere as the king of gamefish. Well, that’s true for about everywhere, but Alaska. There, people consider bass an invasive species and a fish nobody wants to see. Thankfully for Alaska, this hasn’t been a problem, until now.

After being caught over Labor Day weekend, a 7.5-inch bass became the first of its kind ever reported for the 49th state. Therefore, by default, it’s the now the all-time largemouth bass record.

At this time, little is known about how the first Alaskan largemouth bass ever caught actually got there. Many suspect a local may have stocked it illegally. Others on social media suggested people may have dumped them by accident after purchasing bait online. Regardless of how it got there, the state is hoping it’s the only one.

As it was reported, largemouth bass are actually considered an invasive species. They tend to rise to the top of the food chain where they go. Seeing as they’re in Alaska, they would already have to battle some pretty big fish to take the crown, but this isn’t a match the state wants to see.

With any luck, this Alaskan largemouth bass is just some freak that somehow got in the lake. Without any luck, it’s the beginning of a new trend that could have disastrous consequences.

GRAPHIC: Absolutely Brutal Snowmobile vs. Deer Collision

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/graphic-absolutely-brutal-snowmobile-vs-deer-collision/

Facebook

A collision between a snowmobile and a whitetail deer resulted in one of the more gory pieces of video that you’re likely to see.

Everyone outdoorsman knows that collisions between animals and vehicles happen far too often. The results are often catastrophic on both sides. When a snowmobile traveling at high speed strikes a deer, we shudder at the thought of what damage might result to both machine and driver, let alone the deer.

This video shows just such a collision. It is both explosive and surprising.

WARNING: Graphic footage in the video.

As the deer races onto the snowmobile trail, the driver has zero chance of avoiding it. He T-bones the small whitetail with such force that the deer’s back-half almost literally explodes, spraying tissue and innards into the air. It’s ugly and shocking.

But the video is also surprising because, from what we can see, the damage we might have expected to the driver and his snowmobile was thankfully about as minimal as could possibly be. He immediately slows and comes to a stop, gets off of his snowmobile with seemingly little after-effect from the collision, and checks the front of his machine. It appears to have suffered little if any damage.

Amazing. Surely the small size of the deer resulted in far less damage than what there might have been.

In any event, it’s a rough scene. If you’re a snowmobiler it is certainly worth reminding yourself to be alert and treat driving a snowmobile with at least the same defensive attitude and care as you do with your automobile.

Be safe out there this winter!

You'll Never Believe Where This Crazy Rut Chase Winds Up!

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/youll-never-believe-crazy-rut-chase-winds/

When this buck heard there was a hot doe in the area he took things a little too literally. 

If you’ve been in the whitetail woods in November, chances are you’ve seen some crazy rut chases. Bucks chase does up ridges only to chase them right back down; they push them across driveways, through traffic, and even once in a while past your stand.

Despite their crazy November notoriety though, you’ve probably never seen a buck as persistent as the one in this video.

Even with her best diversionary tactics and solid hiding skills, this doe seemingly can’t find a place to escape the hounding buck. With no other option she takes to the lake in a tactic she very well may have used to escape some of the most persistent predators in the past.

A hungry pack of coyotes, however, is no match compared to the persistence of a rutting buck. With Olympic speed the bruiser quickly catches the doe in water and sends the chase back to dry land.

What’s the craziest chase you’ve ever witnessed?
