GAMO Squirrel Master Classic
The gates of the Southern Sportsman Lodge in Montgomery, Alabama closed at the end of the 1st annual Squirrel Master Classic, the action has come to an end at the competition and everyone was returning home, everyone was really happy with the expe...

Three Deep Breaths
My husband, Harold (Bodean) Johnson, had a story in the Sept. 2006 issue of Buckmasters Whitetail Magazine called, “Daniel Boone Buck.” It’s been pretty hard living with him since then. In July 2006, we traveled 7 hours from Burnside, Ky., to Gree...

Size Matters
You can manage deer on small acreage, but you’ll need some neighborly help.

Bowhunting with a Passion
-- Since I was old enough to get out there, I’ve been hunting with my dad and brother. Years of hunting for rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, deer and coyotes have turned me into quite the addict. My parents raised me with the mindset that nothing was...

Get A Bird's Eye View
In 2013, a young bald eagle fledged from a nest within the city limits of Pittsburgh for the first time in perhaps 200 years. In the months before that first young bald eagle emerged, hundreds of people looked on from a distance.  This year, a...

Belly Down for Accuracy
It was a wild, exhausting stalk. Guide Reg Collingwood and I had spent five grueling hours climbing to the crest of British Columbia’s Skeena range. Once we reached the top, I flopped down to give my rubbery legs a rest, while Reg dug sandwiches a...

Misery and Mind Games
Through my experiences in sports and hunting, I’ve learned successful people are those who remain clear-headed, calm and patient under pressure. I’ve also noticed they remember to enjoy each and every moment God gives us, no matter the circumstanc...

Slip-Sliding Away
Hunters had been salivating over a huge buck for a couple of years. It was seen often enough to tantalize beholders and haunt their dreams, but it was never spotted during hunting season. With the clock winding down - on the last day of Iowa's 200...

All the time and effort spent with the landowner has paid off. At last you’ve gained permission to bowhunt his property. The only problem is that the hunting season starts in two weeks. Because of our choice of a short-range weapon, we bowhunters ...

Just One Week
If you had only one week to hunt, would you hunt the rut, pre-rut or early season?

-- Anyone who was rifle hunting in Missouri on opening weekend of 2013 will remember the horrible weather conditions — 70 degrees and 30 mile per hour winds. It was a Sunday afternoon and I was hunting with my wife Bryannon in Benton County, just...

The People's Choice
Firsts are memorable: First kiss. First .22 rifle. And, of course, that first deer. Mine came in early light, a jumped buck, one shot at 35 yards with a Model 94 carbine, just like the one comic-book hero Red Ryder trusted. The forkhorn danced a j...

Buckmasters Big Red Chili
Buckmasters annual Chili Cook-off is an event Buckmasters employees look forward to each fall. Everyone has a great time whether they're entered into the chili competition, the Halloween costume contest or simply standing by with a spoon, a judge'...

Slingshot Scent Mortars
For years I’ve tried to weigh the risk of putting out my favorite scents versus the risk of adding my human scent around the area I’m about to hunt.

If Ever There Was an Omen
Seeing a great buck with a doe while he was driving to his hunting spot primed Todd Bailey's pump. The deer were in a soccer field within a mile of his destination, and it wasn't even 3:00. It was no ordinary buck, either. Todd figured it for a 16...

Proactive Tactics
The bruiser buck started to side-hill toward my stand. As I reached for my bow, flashbacks of past encounters started to run through my mind. I had seen this buck several times, and each time he detoured far enough to stay out of bow range. I had...

From Pennsylvania Game Commission -- During Pennsylvania’s 2013-14 seasons, hunters harvested an estimated 352,920 deer, an increase of about 3 percent compared to the previous seasons’ harvest of 343,110.

Missouri testing shows no new CWD cases
From Missouri Department of Conservation -- Test results of 3,666 free-ranging deer harvested during and after Missouri’s 2013 deer-hunting season, show no additional cases of chronic wasting disease in the state’s free-ranging deer.

Now You See Him...
I have a question on the eyesight of deer and other wild animals concerning the lack of camouflage. You see outfitters wearing blue jeans while the hunter is completely covered in camo.
