If you Climb It, They Will Come
It's probably safe to say that no climber manufacturer has ever advertised a treestand as being a deer magnet. Perhaps they should. Consider the testimony of Bill Collins, a senior analyst for the U.S. Army, whose going-away present for his rece...

Off Season Hunting Tips
Just because the season ends doesn’t mean you have to give up hunting. Well, with a weapon anyway. For many reasons, I like to try to spend as much time as possible in my hunting stand during the off season.

Five Steps to Early season Success
Most deer hunters regard the early season as that time of year to shoot does or scout for the buck they want to chase during the pre-rut and rut. Some don’t even bother to hunt because of the heat or insects. There is nothing you can do about the ...

You Can't Stockpile Deer
Bob, I recently shot a large buck that had an unusual puffy swelling between its antlers. The skin was very loose in this area of about two inches. Was this from fighting, or possibly a virus?

Big Ten in the Buckeye State
-- After watching a big 10-pointer for two seasons, I finally got my shot at it on the evening of October 25, 2013. I discovered this buck on my trail camera last year on my family’s 200-acre farm in Licking County, Ohio. After capturing several ph...

Blasts from the Past
The two hunters, bent in stealth, padded down the winding, dry creek wash for more than a mile before stopping to get their gear in order for the final stage — climbing a crumbling wall to the prairie floor above. One hunter pulled two .45-70 cart...

When Hunters Share Land
When hunters share a piece of property, I've found one of the main conflicts to be messing up each other's hunts when going to and from their stands.

Rebel Yell in Abe's Back Yard
On Nov. 12, 2009, the anticipation was increasing as I made my last sales call of the day. Five o'clock was nearing fast, and all I could think about was loading the truck for my second trip of the year to the Land of Lincoln! My longtime best fr...

Bottleneck Bucks
Every autumn, I begin bow season in a large white pine tree overlooking a woodland meadow that is home to three old apple trees. Deer travel a good distance, particularly in forested regions like the Adirondack Mountains to dine on this seasonal d...

The Rarest Deer Ever?
Bob, have you ever seen a deer like this?  This buck had silver hair and lemon-yellow eyes.

Iconic Harry Potter Owls
In the magical realm of Harry Potter, book and movie fans often call his pet snowy owl Hedwig one of their favorites. Long before this beautiful owl cast a spell on the literary front, snowy owls have bewitched those who have seen them in person. ...

Be aware, stay alert when you visit the woods
Being attentive is beneficial in all aspects of life, and in the outdoors, this is especially true. Students who pay attention will generally make better grades than students who write notes or daydream through class. Cooks who focus on what the...

A Buck is Coming In!
-- My husband Rick and I recently acquired a new property to hunt in Berrien County, Michigan, so we started preparations by doing our homework. Rick spent countless hours walking the terrain and becoming familiar with the area. He set up trail c...

Could be Downhill from Here
Following the 2008 hunting season, I saw a great 9x7 whitetail that left me counting the days until the next one. All I could do was hope the buck survived the winter. Immediately prior to the 2009 season, I went back to the area where I'd spotte...

Mapping Trophy Bucks
The contour map revealed a long ridge slicing through the big timber, eventually splitting into a “Y.” Fifty yards before the split, a dip in the ridge formed a saddle. As a bonus, a deep erosion cut ran from the valley all the way up to just shor...

Easy Casings Cleanup
I much prefer target practice on a friend’s property rather than paying to use a private range or waiting my turn at a public range. My friends are kind enough to allow me to practice on their place, and appreciate me not leaving garbage or brass ...

30 Things Hunters Should Know About Shooting
The things a hunter will learn over the course of a lifetime are innumerable. Some of the most important lessons we learn the hard way, like keeping our nose into the wind. (After you’ve busted a couple of big bucks from their bed because a breeze...

How Soon is Too Soon
Bob, after I shoot a deer, how long should I wait before returning to hunt in the same spot?

Hooked On Hook
-- This past October, I watched my 9-year-old son Brandon accomplish something I haven’t been able to do in 36 years of hunting. For years, I’ve monitored trail cameras, trying to find that perfect buck, but every season I wind up settling for a le...

Deer Addict
Either the Apocalypse or a flood would have to hit Massachusetts to keep Everett Brown from packing his bags and leaving home in November. Even then, there's no guarantee that hell or high water would prevent him from driving to Illinois when the ...
