Slingshot Scent Mortars
For years I’ve tried to weigh the risk of putting out my favorite scents versus the risk of adding my human scent around the area I’m about to hunt.

If Ever There Was an Omen
Seeing a great buck with a doe while he was driving to his hunting spot primed Todd Bailey's pump. The deer were in a soccer field within a mile of his destination, and it wasn't even 3:00. It was no ordinary buck, either. Todd figured it for a 16...

Proactive Tactics
The bruiser buck started to side-hill toward my stand. As I reached for my bow, flashbacks of past encounters started to run through my mind. I had seen this buck several times, and each time he detoured far enough to stay out of bow range. I had...

Pennsylvania deer harvest up 3 percent for 2013-14
From Pennsylvania Game Commission -- During Pennsylvania’s 2013-14 seasons, hunters harvested an estimated 352,920 deer, an increase of about 3 percent compared to the previous seasons’ harvest of 343,110.

Missouri testing shows no new CWD cases
From Missouri Department of Conservation -- Test results of 3,666 free-ranging deer harvested during and after Missouri’s 2013 deer-hunting season, show no additional cases of chronic wasting disease in the state’s free-ranging deer.

Now You See Him...
I have a question on the eyesight of deer and other wild animals concerning the lack of camouflage. You see outfitters wearing blue jeans while the hunter is completely covered in camo.

The 8-point Showgirl!
-- It was puzzling. By the second weekend of the 2013 firearms season, I was perplexed by the lack of buck activity. That’s when I crossed paths with the most unusual deer I’ve ever seen. My family has 220 acres in central Minnesota. We’ve been hu...

Deer Rifles East and West
There used to be a marked difference between what was considered an Eastern deer rifle and a Western deer rifle. Characterized by the slab-sided Marlin and Winchester lever actions, the typical Eastern deer rifle was short, fast-handling and capab...

Rake Path of Least Resistance
After reading the February 11, 2014, Tip of the Week, "Rake Away Crunchables," I thought of a similar tactic I've used for many years to help put whitetails in front of me. I use a rake to create a path for the deer in strategic areas around and le...

Need Buck, Will Travel
Kenny Mallett of Iowa, La., was fired up about the '08 deer season. In 2007, his brother-in-law, Doug Johnstone, had leased a small farm in Benton County, Mo.  Doug, who had been stationed in Missouri while in the Air Force, knew the area had...

Backtrack a Buck
Old Man Winter was conspiring with Mother Nature to ruin my day. It had been snowing sideways for several hours. Worse yet, it was so cold my eyelids were beginning to freeze shut. I mean, I had to bite off my mitt and literally pry my eyes open t...

Gut Feeling
Feeding deer, or even using baits and attractants, should always be given careful consideration, especially in areas with harsh winters.

Muzzleloader Miracle
-- During the spring of 2013, I fell in love with my very first bow purchase, a Mathews Passion. I spent the rest of that spring, summer and fall practicing with it. Because I’d been out of town, I had to miss the first few days of the season, bu...

Last-Chance Ibex
Have you ever been on a stalk that was so physically exhausting that you actually wished the critter you were after would spook so you didn’t have to continue? I was almost at that point this past October hunting mid-Asian ibex in the Tien Shan mo...

Them's the Brakes
In November 2008, Greg Gagnard of Marksville, La., started seeing the big drop-tined buck on his trail camera. Although the camera also picked up several 3 1/2-year-old bucks, the big dropper was the dominant one in the area, and the one Greg want...

No. 1 Tip for No. 2
Although we don't often see the subject of going to the bathroom in the woods as a topic for hunting magazines, TV shows or websites, it's still an issue every hunter must face from time to time.

Sooner Surprise
It was a short drive from my home in the Texas panhandle to Woodward, Okla. The hunt with Cimarron Valley Outfitters was set up by my Arizona cousins Jimmy and Joey Savoini. They brought friends Randall Bryan and Doug Lindberg, and I met the crew ...

Johnny Chestnutseed
I own a farm in northwest Kansas. It’s only 80 acres, but has a river running through it. I’m building it up to be a sanctuary for wildlife. Kansas has a conservation tree planting program that seems attractive to me.

Kansas Has a New Hunter!
-- Two years ago, my son Bryce wanted to try deer hunting. At age nine, he wasn’t quite strong enough to draw poundage adequate for bowhunting, so we chose a rifle. During several outings, Bryce endured some very cold and harsh Midwest winter con...

Cleaning a Rifle Bolt
Too many hunters neglect the primary moving part of their bolt-action rifle: the bolt. That’s a mistake, because a malfunctioning bolt is one of the chief causes of rifle failure, especially in freezing weather. If you want your rifle to go boom i...
