My Unique Buck
-- It was early November during the 2012 youth season when I got my first buck. My boyfriend, Bryce, and I were hunting near Clarence, Mo., as we made our way to our deer stand. I remember it was dark outside, with no moon or light for us to see the ...

Ruger's Upstart .375
No other cartridge has so dominated a caliber as the .375 H&H Magnum. Since its introduction in 1912, the mere utterance of “three-seven-five” has been all that’s needed for any hunter anywhere in the world to know exactly which cartridge you’...

No Longer the Doemaster
Ever since Tim Puhalla traded a time clock and regular paycheck for the feast-or-famine role as an outfitter, he's had to indulge his passion for deer hunting through the eyes and feats of paying clients. Without the luxury of having vacation days...

Dry Pull Your Bowstring
When I get to my stand, I do a dry pull of my bowstring. This means I attach my release and draw my bow then let it back down quietly. This simple measure helps take the popping noises out of a cold string and bow limbs before an animal arrives.

Scent-A-Way Wins Gold!
Hunter's Specialties Scent-A-Way products were given a gold first-place rating in the annual Predator Xtreme Reader's Choice Awards.

Remembering Bucky
Few white-tailed bucks reach the age of 10 1/2 in the wild. If hunters, poachers, parasites, injuries or tough winters don’t claim mature bucks before then, vehicles or predators do. Some bucks manage to beat the odds, though, and I was fortunate ...

What Sex is this Deer?
Bob, I found this photo on my trail camera. Is this a doe with a penis or a buck with no antlers? - Joseph C.

Hold off for the BIG One!
-- On November 26, 2012, my brother Bill and I left camp at 5:30 a.m. to go rifle hunting on our place in Tioga County, Penn. Before leaving, our brother Chris came downstairs to wish us well on a safe hunt. Later that day, I would remember his adv...

Ten Cooking Questions for Kristy Lee Cook
Q: If you were cooking dinner for Simon Cowell, what would you serve him? A: Probably Rattlesnake. Ha! No! In all seriousness, I would cook him something like elk steaks, sweet potato casserole, bread and salad. (I know rattlesnake sounds best for...

Wild Turkey Drumstick BBQ
Many of my fellow white-tailed deer hunters also love to hunt wild turkey. Here's the best turkey hunter's tip I can offer them, and one that too few hunters are aware of.

Bowhunting's Best Bull
They all stood 6 feet, 4 inches - as tall as Réal Langlois' 2008 Alaska-Yukon bull was wide. And the moose arrowed by the French Canadian on Sept. 18 had a lot more going for it besides width. It also carried enough points to challenge the current...

The Day My Son and I Went Hunting
If you had told me in late 2003 what the New Year would bring, never could I have prepared myself for the incredible season and the events that were going to unfold. Before I get ahead of myself, let me tell you about my son. His name was Eli Nee...

Why Do Deer Stomp?
I've noticed sometimes when I spook deer they snort and run off. Other times they stare in my directions and stomp their hooves. Why do they stomp like that?

Stars of the Trail Cam
-- Although my husband, Ed, and I live in New York, my story takes place in Georgia, less than 300 yards from the Chattahoochee River which separates Georgia and Alabama. I've lost count of how many times I've visited those woods, but some months...

Respect Mother Nature's wildlife babies
Despite the lingering cold weather in many parts of the nation, spring is here, bringing the arrival of baby birds and mammals. It's a good time to remember newborn wildlife may be found in your yard, along trails or in open spaces. What should you...

Don't Skimp On The Big Three
There are areas of hunting where I'll settle for less, but not so with my archery gear - especially the big three: my bow, arrows and broadheads.

The Other Red Meat
“HOLY DEER!” That’s not precisely what Jim Fulks said when he walked up on the drop-tined monster lying on its side in the snow. But it’s close enough. Like so many Canadians who love hunting, Jim had often dreamed of being in a snowy place where...
