By Robert R. Rogers -- The 2008 Ohio archery season started out warm and the deer were not moving as much as we had hoped. Just walking to our stands made the sweat roll down our faces and backs. This was not the weather we had expected for central ...

Oklahoma Deer Hunt Much Better Than OK
By Kelly Guinn -- My hunt for a trophy buck began in late October 2007 in Woods County, Okla. I was hunting from a ladder stand about 100 yards from a river. Some does, spikes, and young 8-point came into view, but no mature deer. However, my friend...

"It's Dad's Turn Now"
By David Kisamore -- I am 42 years old. In my 30-plus years of hunting, some of my greatest joys have been teaching my now 14-year-old son, Joshua, how to hunt and then having the privilege of seeing him bag his first deer, a large doe. That was ba...

Season Salvaged
By Adam Riley -- Because I was in my first semester of college and playing football, there weren't many opportunities for me to get in the woods during the 2008-09 hunting season. But I learned quickly that in terms of bucks and time spent afield, q...

The Kidney Stone Buck

No Way!

The Buck That Almost Got Away

The Fourth-Quarter Buck
By Johnny Coker -- Chambers County, Ala., is known for producing really good bucks, but it wasn't shaping up to be a very good year. The hunting club I joined was a dog-running club. I’m not fond of hunting deer with dogs, but I didn’t h...
