Public Land Big Boys
My wife and I hunt on public land here in Kentucky and enjoy great success in the limited time we can hunt. During the off-season, we set up trail cameras and capture thousands of deer photos of all shapes and sizes: from does and spikes to huge 1...

My Lucky Arrow!

How Low Can You Go?
Recoil (ri koyl) — To move back suddenly and violently, for example, after impact. Any way you look at it, recoil means something’s coming back at you. And as it relates to firearms, how fast and hard that is depends on a lot of factors. But no m...

Baiting NOT Legalized in Bama
Alabama's top conservation department officials said that the Conservation Advisory Board's recent effort to define the area around supplemental feed in which hunters may hunt deer and wild hogs does not amount to legalization of baiting.

Hunter Hotline
Prior to last November, Derek Thompson had pretty much convinced himself that seeing or shooting a big buck wasn't going to happen where he hunts in Ross County, Ohio. Truth be told, he wasn't having much luck with little bucks either. A busy sig...

Pure Thrill
My dad has long been an avid deer hunter, but it was not until my sophomore year of high school that I fully comprehended the excitement and pure joy of hunting. On opening day of the 2002 rifle season, Dad and I sat in a ground blind overlooking...

Food Plot Weed Wars

Zach Bags Mr. Big
