Fleas & Ticks on Deer
Bob, I bowhunt in California where the weather is very hot and dry. The past few seasons, my bowkills have been literally covered with fleas and ticks.

What is Alabama's the rarest animal?
Occasionally, wildlife biologists are asked, “What is the rarest animal in your state?” It might be interesting to consider candidates for Alabama’s rarest, most scarce or novel critter. Let’s identify candidates to eliminate. First, we’ll ignor...

Bucket List Buck
-- Before I get to the story of my buck, I have to tell a little bit about what I went through and what transpired before this hunt. I'm from Germantown, Ohio, a small rural town in southwestern Montgomery County. In January of 2009, I was diagnos...

People who hunt, fish add billions to state economies
From Georgia Department of Natural Resources -- Across the board spending by Georgians on outdoor recreational activities such as hunting, fishing and wildlife watching increased in the most recent comprehensive survey, providing a tremendous eco...

The Slug Gun Doctor
While shotguns were never meant to function as rifles, millions of today’s hunters are asking them to do just that. And that’s essentially what makes the tiny Da-Mar Gunsmithing shop with its nondescript storefront a destination at the sleepy cros...

Space Blanket Uses for Deer Hunters
Before deer season starts, I buy a couple of space blankets to use in a number of different ways in the field.

Weatherby Announcements
I just returned from Colorado and the 2013 Weatherby Writers Conference, where the gun company showed off its new lineup for 2014. Not only was the Kessler Canyon scenery breathtaking, the guns were pretty awesome, too! While Weatherby is known more...

Bow Sight Technology
Installing my new Toxonics Top Dog bow sight for the upcoming hunting season caused me to reminisce on how far modern technology has come. All bowhunters my age started slinging arrows instinctively with a longbow or recurve bow. If we were fortun...

Field Judging by Brow Tines
Bob, I asked a well-known outfitter in the Midwest what one good, solid field-judging indicator would be for determining that a buck is most likely mature.

Don't Mess with Mamma!
-- Our son Cameron plays baseball for Victory University in Memphis, Tenn. While home from school a few years ago, he learned a lesson: Never underestimate a woman, and never, EVER, mess with Mamma, even if Mamma didn't grow up in the country. To...

Hand Warmer, Rubber Band & Tink's Trick
Here's a little trick I like to use during the rut, especially on cold days. It's really easy and will help you conserve your liquid scents, saving you money in the end.

Desire+Location+Persistence = Bruisers
Desire is the first building block to arrowing a bruiser buck. You have to be able to keep the fire going all year. Scouting year-round creates opportunities to witness the magical growth of a buck’s antlers, and there’s nothing that lights the fi...

Food Plots
I'm surrounded by corn and soybeans, so are food plots even necessary?

Crazy Weather, Crazier Hunter
-- It was an extremely wet and cold Halloween day in Dayton, Penn., when I hunted on my family farm located about an hour northeast of Pittsburg. Snow and heavy rains were arriving from a hurricane tearing through the East Coast, and I was soaked...

On June 28, 2013, the Heart of Texas BADF Chapter sponsored a very special Life Hunt, the first of its kind for our chapter. This would be the very first hunt for 8-year-old Royal Hutchinson, who was recently diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrop...

Express Delivery
As venerated as the Marlin 336 lever-action rifle is by the millions of hunters who own one, it’s understandable if a lot of them have inferiority complexes. Why? Because almost every year they see new hot-rock cartridges introduced that they know...

From National Shooting Sports Foundation -- The future of hunting is brighter today than it was nearly a decade ago thanks to the extraordinary success of Families Afield, an innovative program that has introduced 1 million newcomers to hunting.

Failing Food Plots?
Hardpan could be the culprit for your failing food plots. You might have noticed that some or all of your plots are not producing like they used to or that they seem to be prone to failure in the summer months. One factor that you might not have co...
