The 7 Habits of Happy Deer Hunters

Who are the happiest deer hunters you know? Are they the ones who fill their freezers every year? Are they the ones who have a wall filled with trophy-class bucks? Or are they the guys and gals who own hundreds of acres of prime ground of which they patrol militantly in search of trespassing...

Is culling a myth or reality when it comes to whitetail deer management? Can you selectively kill and manage wild bucks to achieve mature bucks with big antlers if that is your goal?

Culling Bucks: Does It Really Work?

Man has always strived to be the best at what he does, and this same attitude applies to deer hunting, and more importantly, deer management. As a consequence of sportsmen’s insatiable desire to pursue larger-racked bucks and managers’ willingness to satisfy their requests, a variety of techniques have been tested to augment the size...

Once a Spike, Always a Spike: Deer Hunting’s Big Myth

White-tailed deer tend to grow antlers that are fairly well-balanced. That is, one side looks pretty much like the other. Keep in mind, however, that no two antlers are ever exactly alike, although their similarities from side to side, or even from one buck to the next, are sometimes striking. Nevertheless, deer antlers are...

Freedom to enjoy our lives outdoors hunting, shooting, fishing and pursuing other liberties, doesn't come easily

Remember, Freedom is Not Free

I fired up my 4-wheeler and took the dogs for our daily run around our sacred swamp again this morning. I strapped on my Glock pistol and loaded up my 12 gauge shotgun and .22 rifle in hopes of bagging a few bushytails for the pot. We cruised up and down the spectacular fall...

Bowhunter’s Monster Buck Shatters State Record

After watching a buck for two seasons, Earl Stubblefield of Mississippi figured he’d see it grow into a much better deer this year after another summer of food and maturity. Man, was he right! Stubblefield arrowed a giant 12-point buck on Oct. 8 when it came under his stand and walked to 27 yards....

Choices are Critically Important when Hunting From Treestands

The Friday after Thanksgiving 2014, I went to my favorite Michigan treestand for a morning hunt. I had climbed this particular tree more than 30 times and was confident I was safe. I had my harness on, (not a lifeline), but believed I was safe because I would lock my harness to the tree once...

Buckshots: Firefighter Extinguishes Wisconsin Brute

When Ross Weber got into his stand on Oct. 13, 2015, he was hoping that he might get a chance at a big buck working the area — at the time, though, he didn’t know just how big that buck would end up being. And why would he even think a monster would show up?...

What Are Your Hunting Ethics When No One is Watching?

The glorious Michigan bowseason has been blazing along ferociously for 20 days now. Well, maybe not actually blazing everyday, and I guess not really all that ferocious most of the time either. I take every day and every weather condition as it comes and do my best to improvise, adapt and overcome. I’m certainly...
