4WD Safety Tips
Because so many Buckmasters members own four-wheel drive vehicles, these tips from a driving school instructor could teach hunters a thing or two about 4WD safety on the main road.

How I Found My Hunting Partners
“Be still,” I whispered to Jordan. The doe saw our odd shapes at the base of the tree and stopped to study us for a moment. She soon decided that we didn’t belong there and beat a hasty retreat. A short time later, I spied a small deer standing fa...

What A Difference A Day Makes
Is it true a white-tailed deer is only in heat for a brief 24 hours? It’s true. In most cases, a doe’s peak release of hormones, indicating her willingness to breed, only lasts one day.

Win A Yamaha Grizzly 700
Yamaha Outdoors has partnered with Powderhook and the NWTF to giveaway a new Grizzly 700 EPS 4x4 ATV and a Kansas whitetail hunt.

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...

July: Time to Set Stands
It’s July during some of the longest and hottest days of the year. Deer season, in most cases, is still months away.

Thirty-Five Seasons and a Day
Maybe my daughter expressed it best: "It was your day to shine, Dad!" After 35 years of hunting deer in Wisconsin, my 15 minutes of fame came on opening day of the 2009 firearms season. The morning passed uneventfully; the evening hunt was over in...

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 ...

The Ringo Bull
-- This Hunt started by sending in for The Kentucky Quota Elk Hunt. It was the 13th year I had applied for a permit, and I had begun to give up hope. When they released the results on their website on May 15th, I logged on just to make sure it sti...

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...

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...

Extra Water Bottles
It might make my backpack weigh a little more, but I have always liked to carry extra bottles of water with me while hunting and scouting.

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...

It's a box turtle! Can I keep it?
Finding a slow moving turtle is wonderful discovery, and one of the most commonly found turtles in the United States is a box turtle. Most turtles are aquatic, living in rivers, streams, ponds, swamps and lakes, but like tortoises, box turtles liv...

Countdown to Kansas
-- I’m a NYC fireman, and I’ve hunted since I was a kid. I’ve made a lot of memories with my father and family members. Now I’m proudly passing on the tradition to my son and daughter. This past fall was the second time I headed to Kansas to bowhu...

The Truth About Long-Range Shooting
Ever since humans first threw a stone to kill a bird, we’ve been searching for tools that can extend that range: slingshots, muzzleloaders, centerfires, rangefinders. To facilitate extreme-range sniping, today’s hunter can use VLD bullets, multi-...

Trouble on the Tundra
The morning at our Farnie Lake caribou outpost had started out normal enough. But as I shoved the bullets into my buddy Harold Pirsig's .30-06, a scene from the movie "The Ghost and the Darkness" flashed through my mind. The mental blur dealt with...
