Gut Piles and Roadkills
Having grown up hunting deer in Pennsylvania and with visits to more than three dozen whitetail-rich states over the years, it has become obvious that deer hunters provide other wildlife with a phenomenal amount of fresh meat, organs and other int...

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...

Oh-No-He-Didn't
It's easy for a bowhunting purist to scoff at the notion of taking a deer with a firearm. It's something few riflemen could understand. It's just not the same. Tracy Atchison knows. The 43-year-old railroad track supervisor from Kirwin, Kan., has...

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...

Quick Accuracy Fixes
Sometimes new rifles don’t shoot as well as we’d like, or worse, a previously dependable rifle goes off its feed. Operator error is often the culprit with a rifle that throws bullets across a target like a slingshot flinging rocks. When the gun it...

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.

Serious Mojo
If  Dave Wachtel should happen to scoot through a turnstile, you'd best start looking for the confetti and balloons to drop. If he buys a lottery ticket, send the CPA to his address. And if you invite the 37-year-old former restaurateur to hu...

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...

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...

A Royal Adventure!
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...
