Wisconsin: No Doe Hunting in 2014?

Deer hunters in the northern one-third of Wisconsin will likely not be able to shoot antlerless deer this fall, due to the effects of the brutal winters of 2013 and 2014. The Wisconsin DNR is recommending no doe hunting for most of the northern one-third of the state. According to reports, more than 40...

Shockey’s Favorite Big Buck Tactic: Still Hunting

Tom Miranda of the Whitetail SLAM has authored a new book, The Rut Hunters. This Tom Miranda blog features excerpts from that book. If you take a look at the Whitetail SLAM map you’ll see that the Dakota Region extends extremely far north into the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Each fall optimistic hunters cross the border into the...

This is the buck, as displayed at the 2011 Illinois Deer Classic. The entry card read, "Archery - Marc Anthony, Goodfield, Schuyler County, 12-pointer, 2010, 187-4/8." Photo courtesy of Jeff Lampe, www.heartlandoutdoors.com. Lampe broke the story on the controversy last Saturday.

Marc Anthony Deer Scandal Rocks Hunting World

Not to make light of what seems like a very serious matter, but the recent unravelings of famous Illinois whitetail bowhunter Marc Anthony (the ghillie suit guy) seem like, as Yogi Berra would say, “Déjà vu all over again.” by Daniel E.

Grateful Thanks to Hunters I Admire

I admire all hunters really. I believe we are special breed, never allowing our primal instinct to be compromised and remain directly connected to God’s life-giving natural creation with a predator higher level of awareness and sincere appreciation for our stewardship responsibilities. Backstraps are our reward. By Ted Nugent I’ve been blessed to share...

Locavore Blog: Chasing the Arrow and Other Archery Terms

Thumbing through back issues of Deer & Deer Hunting, I find myself stumbling over terminology related to archery, bowhunting, and rifle hunting – all words I need to start familiarizing myself with for my future goal (and also so I sound like I know what I’m talking about). Considering that I didn’t grow up...

Support Team Critically Important During Deer Season

Tom Miranda of the Whitetail SLAM has authored a new book, The Rut Hunters. This Tom Miranda blog features excerpts from that book. It’s hard to see at certain times of the fall, but serious whitetail hunters typically end up with a very supportive spouse and understanding family – or they end up alone, which is very similar to the world...

Turkey Season Bonus: Close Call is Really Close

A day in the spring woods brings back some fond memories — and reinforces the sage advice handed down by veteran turkey hunters. It also reminds this hunter that a wily, old gobbler at close range is way quicker than a Western gunslinger. by Daniel E. Schmidt I’ve shot my share of turkeys over...

Locavore Blog: Look What Showed Up on My Trail Camera!

We moved to our property last August. It was previously someone’s vacation home (and if you’re going to buy a house, let it be in a location where someone wanted to vacation). Our closest neighbor (which isn’t that close) is located up a mountain that overlooks our pond in one spot and from her...
