Treestand Treats!
Years ago while hunting in Mexico, I picked up one of the simplest, most useful hunting tips I've ever received. Take a handful of hard candy with you before heading to your stand, and keep it in your pocket within easy reach.

A Fling and a Prayer
“You do realize that once you see one of those big-bodied bucks running across a cornfield, you’ll never be the same?” It was more of a warning than a question, posed by Buckmasters editor Ken Piper. He figured I’d be spoiled for life after my upco...

Why I Like ARs (America's Rifle)
When my father purchased his first deer rifle, I was only 8 years old. Up until that time, Dad hunted with either a borrowed rifle or his Winchester Model 12 shotgun.

Deer Behavior In Bad Weather
 Bob, After Hurricane Katrina passed through the Gulf Coast, it lingered in our part of Alabama for several days.

Patience of a Child
-- I want to tell you a story of a shy child who has been taught a great love for the outdoors by his father and has displayed patience that truly amazes me. Landon Hooper was only eight when he took his first deer in Fisherville, Kentucky. It wa...

U.S. Army Awards Otis Technology
On Tuesday, September 24, 2013, Otis Technology was awarded a three-year contract to provide gun cleaning supplies to the U.S. Army. Otis Technology has been a defense contractor for the U.S. Government since the early 1990s and has provided a vari...

The 4x4 - Rifle Not Your Father's Mossberg
Recently I traveled to Wyoming to test a new rifle from, of all people, Mossberg. Sure, Mossberg makes great shotguns, but it isn’t the name that comes to mind when the talk turns to hunting rifles. I’d shot the company’s 100 ATR before and though...

Feather & Floss Wind Indicator
Bird hunters, save the downy feathers from your pheasants, doves, quail and grouse for a foolproof feather wind indicator. I like to attach a feather to an 8 to 12 inch length of dental floss, then tie the other end to my gun barrel and let the feat...

O Buck, Where Art Thou?
If the name Esker sounds familiar and the photo on the cover looks even more so, you might want to look back at the Winter 2009/2010 issue of Rack magazine. The smiling hunter is Scott Esker, shown with his 2008 buck. This time, Steve Esker is out...

Kentucky allows night hunting for coyotes
From Kentucky Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources -- New regulations allow hunters to use a shotgun to take coyotes at night year round. Lights or night vision equipment can only be used from February 1 through May 31.

Reading Rubs
The buck was only a 6-pointer. Barry Henningsen wasn’t interested in tagging it, so instead of drawing his bow, the 52-year-old Manassas, Va., resident stood stone-still in his portable stand and watched the buck ease up to a small tree. Henningse...

Turnips & Clover
Bob, in late spring, I planted turnips along with some Imperial Whitetail Clover. The clover needs to be mowed, but I don't want to harm the turnips. Is this possible?

Bucking Cancer
-- You might remember Indiana's Danny Terril, who made the BTR Record Book in 2011 with a buck scoring 169 3/8 inches composite. Unfortunately, last season Danny was struck with pancreatic cancer.  On September 24, 2012, the avid bowhunter h...

Fire Eater
Two hundred yards and coming in at a full-out dead run . . . I'd barely taken up position behind some jutting rocks, turned on the wailing rabbit sound, settled down, and in the coyote came. At 80 yards, the 20-grain bullet moving just shy of 4,00...

Approach Animals from Behind!
My father always taught me that a deer's behavior is often deceptive, especially if it is injured or wounded. Deer will sometimes play possum, as they do instinctively as a fawn, allowing danger to pass by.

Tink's #63
If Tink's could somehow pen up a bunch of 63-year-old men and either figure out where their tarsal glands are or dig between their toes for the interdigital glands, the deer lure company might just have another winner. And the first shipment - sev...

Mathews Aims for Cure
It is the most common cancer among women in the United States and is also one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths among women, regardless of race. We are talking about Breast Cancer, and the odds are good you know someone who has battle...

From Missouri Department of Conservation -- Although there are an estimated 1.4 million deer in Missouri, scientists anticipate a below average harvest this year with local differences in deer number, according to Emily Flinn, a resource scientis...
