Who Needs Fishing?
-- Let me preface this story by saying that my son Joseph is one of the best kids on the planet. Sure, I’m biased, but the kid has some amazing accomplishments under his belt, and he’s not even 13 yet. Joseph is an avid fisherman who ties his own ...

Gamo Outdoor USA
Gamo unveils the new Buckmasters Squirrel Terminator Air Rifle.

The Easy Way to Improved Performance
The big ram had been below us at the edge of the glacier, covered by ground fog. It wasn’t until my tough young guide, Striker Overly, had dragged me gasping into the sunshine well up the mountain flank that we even knew the full-curl Dall’s was s...

Sometimes it's the bow.
When I first started working for Buckmasters in 1997, it didn't take long to realize I was going to learn a lot from the people around me. One of the first really great tips I picked up was from former Buckmasters editor Russell Thornberry.

Chicken & Buttermilk Dunklins
Seems like most chicken and dumpling recipes are too thin and soupy for my taste. And they leave guests fighting for their fair share of dumplings. Not my recipe! When proportioning it out, I accounted for those common shortcomings and created the be...

Ripleys' Believe-It-Or-Not Buck
The first of two scheduled bowhunts at Camp Ripley, Minn., last season could be described as organized chaos. Yet South Haven archer Scott O’Konek isn’t complaining. The vast 53,000-acre military reservation about 90 miles northwest of Minneapoli...

A Buck for Grandpa
The 1976 Virginia firearms season was soon to open and, for the first time, Grandpa wasn’t going hunting with us. He was dying of black lung disease. Grandpa had worked in the coal mines for years, but now they were working on him. Grandpa had be...

How Long Have I Got?
All the talk about whitetail age classes begs the question: What’s a normal life span for a deer?

Turkey for Two
-- I love it when a plan ... falls apart. It just makes it that much sweeter when you make a new plan, get busted twice and still manage to bloody up the tailgate. As planned, we started the morning on the ground in front of a long narrow food pl...

Five Favorites for Deer
Shivering in the pre-dawn darkness, I burrowed even deeper into my down jacket. Opening morning of Utah’s mule deer season meant snow and near-zero temperatures. The crackling stars began to fade as the sky took on an orange tinge. Aspen trees gra...

Cheap Camo Face Paint
I'm a frugal guy and will find ways to cut corners any way I can when it comes to hunting supplies. One great tip I'd like to share is that makeup is makeup, whether it's marketed as camouflage face paint for hunters or as standard women's facial mak...

From Missouri Department of Conservation -- Missouri’s 2014 turkey harvest reflects favorable weather and improved turkey production as hunters posted the third spring turkey harvest increase in a row, bettering last year’s number by more than 1,...

To Live and Breathe Big Bucks
The 2009 season was my second back in the saddle following an eight-year hiatus from bowhunting. Not only was I eager to make up for lost time, but I was also determined to take my game to the next level. My biggest priority was to acquire hunting...

The rusted barbed-wire fence was as good a stopping point as any, and it was closer than the road. I dragged the buck right up to the bottom strand, let go of it and leaned my bow against an adolescent oak. In one burst of uncharacteristic effort,...

What's a Noob To Do?
A majority of us were taught how to hunt when we were little, but what if you didn’t come from a hunting family?

A Prayer Answered
-- The Missouri archery deer season began like many others. I had seen several deer, but the best part was just spending quality time outdoors. Things took an interesting turn at the end of September when my daughter Allison asked me to take her b...

The Versatile Scope System
Hunters are rather like bears. There are the polar bear types who specialize in a steady diet of one thing. For the bears, it’s seal. For the hunters, it may be whitetails in heavy woods or across open fields, for which one scope at one magnificat...
