Entries for October 2013



In the Blink of an Eye
-- November 8, 2008 is a date that will live with me forever. I was definitely at the right place at the right time, and sheer luck was on my side that entire day. It was unusually cold in northern Louisiana, and my feet were simply extensions of ...

Compass Usage for Treestand Setups
Experienced hunters use a compass for more than just map reading. To make my treestands most effective during hunting season, I always carry a compass.

This Thing Called Eye Relief
Perhaps no part of a riflescope’s specifications is less understood than eye relief. Many hunters don’t have a clue what their pet scope’s eye relief is, nor do they care. As long as they can bring Ol’ Betsy to the shoulder and instantly find hair...

US Army permit no longer needed for Fort Polk, Peason WMAs
From Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries -- The annual federal permit previously required to hunt on Fort Polk and Peason Ridge Wildlife Management Areas is no longer required, according to officials with the US Army.

Kosciusko King
My fourth year to hunt deer was 2009. The only buck to my credit, going into that season, wore a little 8-point basket rack. The first three years, I didn't have a good place to hunt, just my back yard and a small lot down the road. In 2008, my fat...

Tinkle Up a Buck
During several years of hunting in West Virginia, I had the great pleasure of getting to know an elderly mountain man who has harvested more than his share of trophy bucks. I arrived at his secluded farm for one of my visits while he was working ...

If They Aren't Ticks...
Bob, here in the Deep South, seeing small ticks on the underside of deer while field dressing them is normal.

Opening Day Sister Act!
-- During Missouri's 2012 Fall Youth Season, my sister Coti and I attended with high hopes of getting lucky. I am 13 years old and she is 11. On opening day, I sat with my uncle and my father accompanied Coti in a different stand. First, we all m...

Guess That Spooky Sound!
The days are growing longer, and it’s dark sooner instead of later, and there are a lot of very scary sounds out there in the woods. Do you know what they are? As the time for tricks or treats approaches, here’s a special treat from the Missouri D...

Make Mine a Model Seven MS
The bull saw me before I saw him, and that meant that four hours of careful still-hunting went right out the window. What I glimpsed through the vertical maze of lodgepole pines was the bull’s head and antlers coming up, a bit of dried grass hangin...

One Acre and a Mule
Thirty-two years of deer hunting weren't enough to prepare Jerry Kassinger for the buck he shot with his crossbow last season in Ohio. He had no idea the animal's antlers would surpass the lofty 200-inch mark. His first clue about the buck's calib...

Linger for the Lens!
For those of you who use trail cameras like I do, I think you'll find this tip very useful! I've noticed deer will stay longer in front of my camera if I take a moment to broadcast the corn and other attractants instead of just dumping it in a big pi...

A License to Drive
Just as his father taught him 40 years ago, Tim Hooey is teaching his son to hunt. But sometimes it is not easy knowing what is perfectly good repetitive instruction and what is outright nagging. Sometimes Dad forgets that he was the same do-it-my...

Planting Apple Trees
My question is, are apples a good food source for deer, and if so, how many trees are needed?

Hunt from a treestand?
From Kansas Dept. of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism -- Fall-restraint systems can be a life-saving tool when hunting from a treestand. The deer rut can be some of the best hunting all year for bowhunters, but with the whirlwind of activity, some h...

An Ounce of Prevention
By Chris Nix / Wildlife Biologist -- Each year, thousands of hunters climb trees in excess of 20 feet and hunt from platforms that they might not have inspected prior to the hunting season.

Catoosa County Countdown
-- Being a novice hunter, I needed all the help I could get. A couple of my hunting friends must've answered about a thousand of my questions, and I searched YouTube for videos about every aspect of deer hunting I could possibly think of. I spen...

Bust Claybirds on a Budget
Shotgunning is more art than science. That’s painfully obvious when you hunt quail, ducks, pheasants or any other upland birds. Carefully aim a shotgun as you do a rifle, and you’ll miss every time. Even if birds rained from the sky every time you...

Troy Landry's Crawfish Étouffée Stuffed Peppers
In 2012, I had the privilege of sitting down with Troy Landry for a few moments at the Buckmasters Expo. While he and his sons were taking a break from signing autographs at the Swamp People booth, Troy and I spoke at the lunch table about his lov...

Ah, Illinois!
Four of us travel to Illinois every year with dreams of lugging one of those monstrous corn-fed whitetails back home. Last season, I got to do just that! Our crew consists of my lifelong friend Aubrey "Butterball" Boothe, Barry Payne, Craig Vail ...
