Poetry in Motion
-- The story about my first deer hunt really started Christmas of 2008 when my parents got me my first gun, a .22 caliber Cricket.  My dad, Rich, and I started shooting at our sportsmen club and I got better each time. For years, I kept shoot...

Care and Cleaning of Binos
A hunting binocular is a bit like a hunting dog. You have to take care of it to get top performance. Fortunately, binos are more easily trained in basic obedience like sit and stay. Lay one on a stump, and it’ll stay there through rain, snow, cold...

Following in Granpa's Footsteps
Some of my fondest memories of growing up are of hunting with my dad. I could not wait to go to deer camp with him to join my grandpa, uncles and cousins. With the fire roaring in the fireplace and snow falling outside, the men played cards while ...

Never Assume!
This classic mistake has happened to me more times than I'd like to admit, and I bet it's happened to you, too. After sitting in the stand for several hours without seeing so much as a squirrel or bird, I would stand up to stretch or grab a snack ou...

Time of the Signs
Four hot scrapes followed a trail along the side of the ridge. Nevertheless, I remained skeptical after climbing into my stand just before dawn. You see, I had been beaten by so called hot scrapes too many times. You know how it works. You come ac...

In the Blink of an Eye
-- November 8, 2008 is a date that will live with me forever. I was definitely at the right place at the right time, and sheer luck was on my side that entire day. It was unusually cold in northern Louisiana, and my feet were simply extensions of ...

Compass Usage for Treestand Setups
Experienced hunters use a compass for more than just map reading. To make my treestands most effective during hunting season, I always carry a compass.

This Thing Called Eye Relief
Perhaps no part of a riflescope’s specifications is less understood than eye relief. Many hunters don’t have a clue what their pet scope’s eye relief is, nor do they care. As long as they can bring Ol’ Betsy to the shoulder and instantly find hair...

Kosciusko King
My fourth year to hunt deer was 2009. The only buck to my credit, going into that season, wore a little 8-point basket rack. The first three years, I didn't have a good place to hunt, just my back yard and a small lot down the road. In 2008, my fat...

Tinkle Up a Buck
During several years of hunting in West Virginia, I had the great pleasure of getting to know an elderly mountain man who has harvested more than his share of trophy bucks. I arrived at his secluded farm for one of my visits while he was working ...

Opening Day Sister Act!
-- During Missouri's 2012 Fall Youth Season, my sister Coti and I attended with high hopes of getting lucky. I am 13 years old and she is 11. On opening day, I sat with my uncle and my father accompanied Coti in a different stand. First, we all m...

Guess That Spooky Sound!
The days are growing longer, and it’s dark sooner instead of later, and there are a lot of very scary sounds out there in the woods. Do you know what they are? As the time for tricks or treats approaches, here’s a special treat from the Missouri D...

Make Mine a Model Seven MS
The bull saw me before I saw him, and that meant that four hours of careful still-hunting went right out the window. What I glimpsed through the vertical maze of lodgepole pines was the bull’s head and antlers coming up, a bit of dried grass hangin...

One Acre and a Mule
Thirty-two years of deer hunting weren't enough to prepare Jerry Kassinger for the buck he shot with his crossbow last season in Ohio. He had no idea the animal's antlers would surpass the lofty 200-inch mark. His first clue about the buck's calib...
