Colton’s First Archery Hunt
I knew it was going to be a good day soon as I walked out the door. The temperature was 20 to 30 degrees warmer, and with the south wind it was going to be perfect. We’d had subzero temperatures the past two weeks. Today was going to be the day to ta...

A Fabulous First Hunt
Nicci Kingdon’s very first animal taken during a hunt is a Russian boar. The 12-year-old made a perfectly placed shot at 60 yards with her dad Robert’s .3030 bolt action rifle. The 200-pound hog took two steps and went down. Nicci was taught how to ...

A First Buck -- Thanks to Dad

A Great Start for Seth
This was Seth's second year hunting white-tailed deer, and we've spent a lot of weekends of hunting together. He's hung in there, hasn't given up, and has shown lots of patience. We headed to Pearsall, Texas at midnight on Jan. 1 putting us there ar...

Hunter's very fishy fish story
Hunter Carter was fishing with his dad at his grandpa's farm in Oklahoma when he hooked a three-pound bass.  The fish was a lot of fun to get in because it ran then jumped out of the water a couple of times.  Hunter's dad said the look on H...

A Thanksgiving to Remember
Hi, my name is Madison Shubert. I am 8 years old. This is the first year I got to hunt with my own gun. On Thanksgiving morning I went in the woods with my dad at 5:30 a.m. and it was cold and dark. We set up in a blind and waited and waited. At 8:4...

This should be a great year to hunt
The 2008 Colorado hunting season was my first hunting season. I was 12 years old at the time, and I had a lot of company. I went with my dad, grandpa, aunt, great-aunt and great uncles. We woke up opening morning, had a great breakfast and then we h...

Help! It’s the Big Cahoona!
Ten years ago, Quinton’s dad thought he’d killed the pond on his grandpa’s property. All the fish had died, or so we thought. No one fished in the pond, no one threw a line in, and no one restocked the pond. But strange things can happen.  ...

First thought for a first buck—what a monster!
I got my first big buck on a Saturday morning in December while I was hunting with my cousins on the farm. I got up in my tree before daylight and waited. Just as daylight broke, I loaded my .243 and there he was. What a monster buck, I thought. It ...

Joining the Club

Grandpa said that was a great shot!
Destiny, her grandpa and I were sitting in a small, closed treestand. The cramped conditions had me praying a deer would come along soon.   Her grandpa told her she would know when a deer was coming because ground squirrels would run away....

Trophy hunting for hogs, next a deer
The first weekend in October, my dad took my mom and me on our very first hunt to Tiger Island Outfitters to hunt trophy hogs. My dad worked with my mom and me for a couple of weeks before the hunt so that we were able to shoot straight and accur...

Hog Schoolin’
By Kevin Broadus -- After losing access to prime deer hunting land in my home state of Alabama, I was left with only public land to hunt. My best friend had been telling me how much fun it was to hunt hogs, and had put a touch of hog fever in me. So...
