Are These Among Your Favorite Hunting Brands?

If you ever want to drum up a discussion in hunting camp or around the cafe liar’s table, just ask about the best deer hunting caliber, whether hunting is better now or in “the good ol’ days,” or what is the best rifle, boots, bow and other gear. Hunters love their gear, no doubt....

Celestron Windguide Anenometer

Make the Most of Your Range Time, Hunting Days

Several years ago while shooting prairie dogs in Wyoming, one of my buddies pulled out an anemometer to check the wind speed and other weather factors. I had seen these before but never in person, and it was pretty doggone cool. He had been in the Marine Corps and was quite proficient with a...

Mmmmm, who loves the flavors of venison?

Celebrate the Flesh with Sacred Venison

As goes the difficulty of effort goes the degree of celebration. That’s what I always say, and nothing personifies enormous effort manifesting enormous celebration quite like deerhunting. Since 90% of my deer are bagged with the ridiculously borderline impossibility of bowhunting, when after much prolonged patience testing sacrifice, a lifetime of indefatigable stealth honing...

Brooke Merrill with her buck that almost caused her to miss her bridal shower!

She Almost Missed Her Bridal Shower for This Great Buck!

The bridal-shower crisis actually began six years earlier when Brooke started dating her now husband, Daniel Merrell. Daniel, an avid hunter, asked Brooke to accompany him on a hunt as an observer, and that first year he tagged a buck. By the third year, she wanted her own chance at a buck. “I was...

All Hail The American Hunter’s Generosity

It has happened 100s and 100s of times over the years. To help raise awareness for a given charity event, I get on regional radio shows across the country to promote and celebrate these glowing nonstop examples of the amazing generosity of Americans whenever our fellow man or the environment needs a helping hand....

Today's modern hunter may use everything from a modern sporting rifle like this one to a traditional bow, wearing performance clothing or old school wool. Today's hunter spans the gamut.

In this Incredible Age, What Defines the Modern Hunter?

What best defines the modern hunter? I’d argue it’s not really a question of who he or she is, but rather when he or she lived. Every generation has had its rendering of the modern-day hunter, dating back to prehistoric times, when early man embarked on the hunt with primitive weapons in search of food for...

Bowhunters in Montana will see a host of changes in 2017 season, with the latest being the removal of a longtime ban on lighted nocks for hunting. Officials with the Montana Fisheries, Wildlife and Parks Commission voted Feb. 10 to end the ban on the lighted nocks. The ruling places Montana in the modern...

Deer & Deer Hunting TV, co-hosted by Dan Schmidt, will headline the "Deer & Deer Hunting Saturday Night Deer Camp" on Pursuit Channel this autumn.

Improve Your Woodsmanship by Thinking Like a Deer

There’s a difference between anthropomorphism and common-sense hunting tactics. Of course, the latter is quite the oxymoron. As baseball great Paul Molitor once said, “If common sense were so common, wouldn’t everyone have it?” It should also be noted that many great hunters fail miserably when trying to predict deer behavior based on “what...

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

Venison: The Ultimate PR Tool for Hunters

Communication is everything. Our quality of life pivots on the simple two letters; P and R. What PR stands for is “public relations” and is best reduced to the ultra-simplicity of relating to the public. Beyond God, family and country, relating to the public pretty much covers everything important in life. As hunters we...
