Monster Bucks during the October Lull

The October Lull…..sounds a little depressing doesn’t it! Not nearly as popular a word with whitetail hunters as something like “The Rut”! Probably because it is just that, a lull in activity that happens somewhere between the first week of October and ends a week or so before Halloween. But what’s really happening during this […]

Hunting Report #3 from Tim’s Safari

Tim’s latest report from his African Safari Day 8: After a buffalo party last night, we got a late start. We stalked some Niassa wildebeest, but there was no bull. Not long after we saw a 3 year old male lion off the road and watched him a while. We hadn’t driven 50 yards from […]

Latest hunting report from Mozambique

Tim’s latest update from Mozambique…day 7. Things continue to go well. I took a nice Boheme Zebra, and we have been working hard on buffalo. They have been tough with the camera as they want to stay in the thick stuff where we can’t film. Finally today we got a break. We tracked two old […]

Monster Bucks on The Opener

If I had to pick my favorite month to hunt “Monster Bucks” it would have to be October! Yeh, you heard right, October, not November. I have had my best luck in October and harvested all of my biggest bucks including all 3 of my 200” deer prior to Halloween. There are a few good […]

Tim’s First Hunt Report from Africa

Day 1: (arrival) We made it to Kambako’s camp this afternoon on a Navajo, and though we did have some airline trouble off and on, we arrived with all of our bags. The stay at African Sky was just wonderful, and upon shooting the rifles, they all seem to be spot on. There are a […]

Which buck do you hunt?

Every summer I try to find the biggest buck I can chase around during season. Many of you do the same. Then, if you’re like me you try to set a goal of a specific buck or maybe one of a certain size range. This is fun stuff to debate with your buddies, but can […]

Shoot Coyotes this Season!

We’ve all heard the debate over coyotes and whether they kill deer or not. They might not be taking down mature deer but they can put the hammer on fawns. Check out this trail cam picture from last year  that was sent to me by Ed Waite of Buckmasters. I thought it would be appropriate […]

Monster Bucks- The Change

The “Dark Horse” buck, 2011 Who out there has an eyeball on a big buck already? Trail cam pics? Video? Or have you burned a hole through him with your spotting scope? Is he predictable, doing the same thing every night? Have you had your eye on him all summer, watching him waltz into the […]

A Time of Preparation

A Time of Preparation

Tim Herald is back at it, getting ready for his first hunt of many he has planned for this fall. He asked me to post a few of his first articles for August because he’s swamped getting ready to leave the country for a safari. Happy to do that. Like Tim, and most of you […]
