WMAs: Scouting & Hunting Advice
I am new to hunting Wildlife Management Areas and would like your input. Specifically, I will be trying out a bow-only WMA in south Alabama this year. I scouted the area in pre-season. It's flat, with only a few square miles having clear-cut area...

Eleven Must Be Lucy's Lucky Number!
-- On 11/11/11, at age 11, my daughter Lucy Smith went hunting with me in Camden, Ala. We were in search of her first buck, and her weapon of choice was a crossbow. We set up in a ground blind on the downwind side of a food plot. The wind was perfe...

Pink Earrings for a Cure

Cajun-Style Venison Tenderloins
Via Alabama, via Illinois, Via Missouri, via Louisiana... For those who love to eat wild game, hunting lodges can be far better sources for collecting recipes than cookbooks. Where else do you have full access to a chef or cook who specializes in ...

Predator Perfect
A friend once proudly informed me that he owned nine big game rifles. When I asked how many varmint rifles he owned, he looked at me quizzically and simply said, "Why, all of them!" He was right, of course. Any centerfire rifle in any caliber can ...

Hunting in Toontown
Adam Silvers was a toddler when "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" opened in theaters in 1988. His grandparents might've been children when Disney's "Song of the South" hit the silver screen in '46. Both flicks showed real live actors interacting with car...

Off-the-Grid S'mores
Making s'mores around a campfire should be a fun and simple activity, but the kids all too often end up with charred marshmallows, grit in their teeth and singed eyebrows. Raise your hand if you've ever gotten impatient and stuck your marshmallow...

The Shot Heard 'Round Kentucky
My daughter, Stephanie Gavin, has been exposed to hunting her entire life. I am a taxidermist, vice president of a local bowhunting club, and the regional director of the Kentucky Bowhunters Association. Her mom, Shannon, and I are also both offic...

Cold Isn't Cool
There you sit, all warm and toasty in the cab of your truck, heater on full blast, radio cranking out your favorite tunes. It’s cold, finger-numbing cold, but you did your time. Two hours in a treestand was enough for you. Besides, you didn’t see ...

Get the Kids Involved
About five years ago, I made a rule that my three boys couldn’t watch television or play video games on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Sundays. I also placed time limits on TV and video games for the rest of the week. I didn’t do it to be an ogre; I just re...

The Great Lead Debate
In 2008, North Dakota dermatologist and hunter Dr. William Cornatzer sent 95 pounds of ground venison through a CT scan in an effort to determine if lead fragments were present in the meat. His findings sparked a fierce debate within the hunting c...

Fawn Questions: Facts or Myths?
I've heard you can tell a fawn's sex by its spot pattern. I don't believe it, but would like to know if there is any scientific data to prove or disprove it. Also, I've been told that if a doe has triplets, they will all be bucks. Is there any tr...

Missouri urban deer harvest beats 10-year average

Down-to-earth Deer Hunting
By Frank Allen -- The most popular method of hunting white-tailed deer is from an elevated stand, but for those who don’t wish to climb a treestand, you can hunt deer and not leave the ground.

Worth the Wait!
-- Several years ago I began passing up smaller bucks, usually at least two per year. In fact, the buck I'm about to tell about is the only buck I have taken since 2005. It hasn't been easy to eat buck tags for the past five years, but to me it m...

Browning's A-Bolt: Vintage Rifle With Modern Touches
Anyone who has held or admired the better bolt-action rifles made before 1960 is immediately aware of a difference — a big difference — between those magnificent examples of riflemaking skills and those of today. This is not meant in any way to c...

Ice Chest = Scent-free Storage
With all the time, money and effort hunters spend trying to keep clothes scent-free, we usually end up storing them in something that isn't even airtight. Those large, plastic storage tubs with lids that we shove our clothes into certainly aren't ...
