The Interstate Buck
I got my first BB gun when I was five years old, and that’s where my story begins. Dad would come home from hunting rabbit, quail or squirrels with my Grandpa and Uncle Rodney or some guys from work and, under Mom’s supervision, I’d be practicing ...

Where Are My Big Bucks?
I hunt in east Texas on a 100-acre family farm with mostly open pasture land. This is my first of many years hunting to utilize a game camera. Over the past several years I have consistently harvested deer, 18 since 2000, yet have never seen or h...

Oh, Kentucky!
-- I've been hunting deer since I was a teenager, chasing both bucks and does, and I always dreamed someday I'd take a really big buck. I am 35-years-old and as of November 4, I can now officially say I've taken a huge buck - maybe even a record book...

Hodgdon's 2013 Annual Manual
Hodgdon announces that the highly popular Annual Manual is back for its 10th consecutive year. The 2013 Annual Manual is teeming with over 160 pages of data including fresh information on 37 rifle and pistol cartridges, 56 pages of new articles fr...

Double Take
“Get that bird!” someone shouted. I’d been picking my way through knee-high CRP and wasn’t as alert as I should have been. Pivoting right, I spotted the blur of wings as a rooster rocketed toward the far fenceline. I had plenty of excuses for mis...

Lost Doe Forgotten
The first time Alexis Kemp's crossbow sang on the Friday after Thanksgiving, the final note was not a thwack. The 11-year-old misjudged how close the doe was to the stand she shared with her father. The encore, however, was pitch perfect. The gir...

Artificial Christmas Tree Camo
For years I've been collecting used artificial Christmas trees from garage sales and thrift stores to use as camo and cover up material on my deer stands. I have box stands sitting on the ground, and I've attached the limbs from the Christmas tree...

Smoking in the Stand?
Does cigarette smoke adversely affect deer hunting?

Treestand University
Treestands have played a big role in increasing success rates for bowhunters. When I began bowhunting in the early 1970s, there were only a couple of manufacturers (like Loc-On or Baker) that even offered portable treestands. But once they caught ...

WV hunters take 56,173 bucks
From West Virginia Department of Natural Resources -- Preliminary data indicates deer hunters in West Virginia harvested 56,173 bucks during the two-week buck firearms season, Nov. 19 through Dec. 1.  The 2012 buck harvest was seven percent ...

With Antlers to Boot!
-- I woke up that morning knowing it was the perfect morning to shoot a deer. It was 36 degrees, and the rut was in full swing. I had an either-sex tag, and my main goal was to simply shoot a deer to put meat in the freezer - any deer. I didn't e...

New council tackles feral hog problem
By David Rainer -- A week or so ago, a friend sent me a picture of the feeder he has on his property in Baldwin County. He’s sent me photos before, but they had always contained a nice buck or two.

Reverse Trail Blazing
I like to hunt in the hard to get to places. This often means finding a stand site where most hunters won't go, simply because it's too hard to get there quietly. These are the places where the big bucks are!

'Field & Stream Buck'
My 2008 hunting season started as soon as Wisconsin's 2007 season ended. My hunting partner, Paul lson, and I made numerous trips from Eau Claire to our hunting lease in Buffalo County in January and February to check trail cameras and fine-tune s...

Buck Fawns and New Territories
When fawns leave their mothers, do buck fawns generally stay in the area or leave to find their own territories? I've heard it's best to shoot the mother before the fawns are pushed away in order to keep the buck fawns in the same area.

My Monster Buck!
-- My daughter is 10-year-old Cameron Martin of Lexington, Miss. She got her first buck on November 8, 2012. It is a heck of a first buck for anyone, and I am proud to help her write her story for you! She wants to title it "My Monster Buck!" It ...

10 Xmas Gifts Under $100
Since I’ve been out of town and hunting so much lately, my wife and I decided to meet for lunch yesterday to try to catch up on events and plan for the holidays. Isn’t it crazy how we seem to spend more time and communicate more with the people we...

Santa Was Late to Shreveport
After nearly a week of playing musical stands, trying to guess which setup would put 11-year-old Collier Campbell within shooting distance of an enormous whitetail, the song ended. There was only one problem: Unless bucks could fly, the shooting ...

Zip Ties: An Archer's Friend
When archery hunting, whether from a treestand or ground blind, I like to remove my quiver from my bow. I simply don't like the added weight or the extra noise it makes when I shoot and the arrows buzz. One less thing to rattle is a good thing.

Regulation prohibits Alabama deer release
From Alabama Dept. of Conservation & Natural Resources -- In response to concerns regarding the intentional release of captive-raised deer into the wild in Alabama, Conservation Commissioner N. Gunter Guy Jr. signed an emergency regulation pr...
