Ted and Shemane Nugent give thanks every day for all their blessings and those bestowed upon their family and friends.

Every Day is a Happy ThanXgiving Day!

Happy ThanXgiving everyday, world! That’s what I always say! No, really, for more than 40 years I have always started the Nugent family ThanXgiving celebration sometime in early October, far, far ahead of the calendar stymied crowd. Something powerfully spiritual comes over me each October as my beloved deerseason kicks in each mystical fall,...

Tony Wagner with the buck he killed with his late friend's crossbow. After a long night he resumed the blood trailing and found the buck the next morning.

Buckshots: One for Chuck

Opening day of gun deer season 2011 I first saw my neighbor Chuck. I was sitting in my favorite stand facing his property when he appeared in his back yard in a blaze orange jacket, with a leaf blower so powerful that it must have scared all the deer away for more than a mile....

Bucks learn and adapt, with some of them becoming what hunters believe are reclusive and never showing themselves during the day.

Reclusive Bucks: Whitetails Easily Adapt to Man, Development

The almost full-grown button buck fawn clumsily picked its way through the thick brush directly behind its mom. Sometimes they would get separated, more common now that the fawn was rather independent, but a bleat from the fawn allowed the doe to relocate her offspring and they would continue on their daily journey.

From slickhead does to giant swampdonkeys to fish and fowl, Ted and the Nugent family enjoy every blessing nature gives them.

Rejoice in the Grand Opening Day Celebration!

OPENING DAY! Are you kidding me! Here in my birthstate of Michigan, (you know, the “reliably blue state” that just upgraded to a glowing Republican RED state!) this magical, mystical amazing day always falls on November 15, and all these adventurous 67 years after my day of birth, it is still as exciting as...

Hunters Get Deer From the Woods on a Bicycle

When Michael Hehner and Chris Johnson trek into the forest to hunt deer, they’re smart enough to ride a bicycle just in case they drop a buck or doe. Pretty cool, eh? This isn’t a new hunting trick, by any means, but some hunters don’t want to fool with a bike. But instead of...

Hunter, Battling Cancer, Drops Monster 19-Point Buck

Warren Curtis of Lee, Maine, has been a trapper, hunter and outdoorsman for years. Living in Maine can be challenging in winter, when the weather’s not always great.

8 Messages Deer Send Hunters With Their Tails

When you spot a deer, study its tail. What you observe will help you make smart hunting decisions. Of course, the deer’s body language is important to watch, too. It goes hand in hand in with what the tail is doing. But the tail’s actions are a very visible, clear and direct indication of...

Team DDH’s Kayser Drops Awesome Mule Deer

The Team DDH crew keeps on rolling this season, with Deer & Deer Hunting TV co-host Mark Kayser bringing in a fantastic mule deer with his CVA muzzleloader. Kayser had been hunting this buck for a while, a 3.5-year old 4×5 that gave him a shot from about 50 yards when it stood up on...
