Cool Video: Four Fawns Attack Mother Doe!

What a cool video! Check out the scene as a white-tailed doe nearly gets mugged by four hungry fawns! We get the question a lot here at Deer & Deer Hunting: Will a white-tailed doe nurse fawns that aren’t hers? The typical answer is “no,” at least not for prolonged periods. But that’s not...

Although my whitetail adventures will begin later this month in southern Florida for their rut (yeah, go figure!), I’m already daydreaming about bowhunting northeast Wyoming once again with Ralph Dampman of Trophy Ridge Outfitters.

The Most Accurate and Forgiving Hunting Bow?

It came with a lot of fanfare earlier this year. No cams. Really? Would that even work? A lot of people skeptical, especially longtime archery fanatics. I was not one of them. When Matt McPherson revealed his new No Cam® to bowhunting circles it set the industry on its ear. It still is. After...
