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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...
