Ohio Deer Hunter Might Have the Coolest Spouse Ever

OK, guys and gals: Brace yourself for one of the craziest photos and coolest stories we’ve seen in a while.

Deer & Deer Hunting fan Jarad Martin sent us this photo of his buddy Mike Behrmann back in 2014 and we ran across it recently looking for some other deer hunting items:


Jarad informed us that his buddy shot the monster 28-pointer in Ohio and that it will score 180+ inches. WOW! Right?

While responding with my congrats, I couldn’t help but ask the obvious question: What’s the deal with the buck in the house by the Christmas tree? LOL!

Jarad replied:

“LOL. It was dark by time he got home an his wife knew it was a buck of a life time so she said bring it in to get pictures.”

Beyond cool, and what a Christmas present!

What’s more, I don’t think Mike can relate — at all — to our tongue-in-cheek Facebook post from earlier this week!




Improve Your Licking Branches with Smokey’s Preorbital
Research proves that the licking branch is the No. 1 key to success when hunting a mock scrape. Smokeys Preorbital Gland LureFurthermore, the key to that licking branch is preorbital scent. Bucks secrete this scent as a means of distinctly identifying themselves from the “competition.” In layman’s terms, it allows deer to understand their rank in the pecking order.

What many hunters don’t realize is that bucks keep tabs on one another by using licking branches, and they do it year round. Why? Bucks pay close attention to one another by depositing scent from their pre-orbital gland to licking branches. Bucks regularly visit licking branches and become aware when a new rival shows up — the licking branch has the scent of a guy they don’t know.

Smokey’s preorbital gland lure contains matching glands from individual bucks. Smokey’s gland lures are extracted from harvested deer and processed to enhance and retain the properties of the scent. Enhance the licking branches over your mock scrapes with the real deal — Smokey’s preorbital gland lure.
