I'm Paul Winks, and I'm proud to join the group at Military Hunting and Fishing. I'm a life long Hoosier, and Purdue Boilermaker fan. I grew up in a hunting and fishing family. My grandmother introduced me to panfish and morel mushrooms at a young age. My uncles took me on my first squirrel and rabbit hunts, and my Dad instilled a love of deer hunting and an appeitite for ginseng. Other intrerests, like waterfowl and turkeys, I picked up on my own. These days, waterfowl and river fishing consume most of my outdoor time, but I do still dabble in small game and deer every year.

My two sons are my outdoor companions these days. I've spent a lot of time and effort to teach them the same respect and love for the outdoors that I developed years ago. I also have an entire tribe of grandsons, from first grade down to 2. My hands are gonna be full for years to come.

I'm a welder by trade. That ability and desire to build has made me a avid DIY'er. Duck decoys, tree stands, and even duck boats...if I use it, I'm gonna try to build it.

Chances are, if you are here, we have a lot of common interests. I look forward to sharing mine with you!

Ice Safety: Staying Dry to Stay Alive

With spring just around the corner, it seems strange to sit and write about ice safety.  Wouldn’t this be a better topic for December? Well, yeah, but in a lot of cases last ice can be more dangerous than first ice.  Indiana is right on the southern edge of ice fishing country.  Most years, the […]

Hunting Balloons — A Fun, Safe Day with Christmas BB Guns

I’ll admit, I’ve not always been a fan of BB guns.  They can either be a dangerous toy, or an awesome tool for teaching gun safety and basic hunting techniques.  When the grandsons started asking for them at Christmas, the Papaw just couldn’t say no…with some conditions.  I’ve taken great pains to convey to the […]
