The heat is still on, but it's almost fair time, so we're all used to it by now.  As for the fishing, we're still catching crappie.  My best luck has been at 25-30 feet of water, and 18-20 feet deep with a tip jig with minnow.  As sun the sun goes up, move to the shady side of the trees.  After about 10:00, go home and cool down, because it seems to shut down after that.

We've been seeing lots of deer lately.  Make sure you watch out before right before dark.  If you see on the side of the road, more often than not there are fawns nearby, possibly getting ready to cross in front of your car, so be prepared!

Don't forget about the State Fair Archery Appreciation Shoot on August 12.  There will be lots of door prizes and fun for the whole family.  We'll plan on seeing you there.  We'll also be out at the KIX 105 RV at the Missouri State Fair, located in front of the grandstands.  You'll have the chance to win a lot of great stuff, including our new Huntin' and Fishing with Harry koozies.

Speaking of winning cool stuff, we'd like to welcome DQ Grill & Chill as a new sponsor of Hunting and Fishing with Harry and MO Kids Outdoors.  We are proud to be associated with this family-owned local business that is all about the youth of today.
