It is the end of October, and as usual big bucks are falling to hunters, but it seems that weather conditions have been and are about perfect. Over the past weekend, temperatures in the Midwest dropped below averages, and the big boys were really moving. I sent a friend on a hunt in Iowa with […]

Here’s a great husband and wife hunting report.  Congrats to the Bigbee’s on an awesome season! Mary Tucker Bigbee recently harvested this giant 166 B&C buck near Coldwater, Kansas with her 50 Cal.

October Fun and Management

October Fun and Management

As I reported both my kids got pretty lucky and killed good bucks the first week of October with their crossbows. Well that let them out on hunting bucks with guns during KY’s youth season. They love to hunt, and in many places in KY, doe harvest is unlimited, so we went out for a […]

Alaskan Brown Bear taken with Home Made Bow

I get a lot of stories via email but this one caught my eye, it was forwarded by Ed Waite of Buckmasters. Stalking giant bears takes guts, and hunting with self made traditional archery equipment is about as tough as you can make it on yourself to get the job done. My camo hats off […]

Another KY Buck

Another KY Buck

Another One Down In KY I have to admit my family was riding high after Will took his mature 10-pointer on October 2. He had been so patient, waited almost 3 years since his last buck, and really made quite a difficult shot in low light. I figured my KY deer season couldn’t get any […]

Matt’s Ohio Buck

After a freak accident to my left hand, the recovery has been slow. I’m getting stronger every day but the fine details like working a buckle or turning a bolt are still very frustrating. I am very fortunate to have great friends that help me out. I have been shooting my trusty PSE compound again […]

Patience Pays off for Will

Patience Pays off for Will

I find early October a pretty tough time to kill a good whitetail especially on years like this when oaks are dropping everywhere. I generally concentrate the first two weeks of the month taking my boys, letting them shoot does for management, etc. They are 11 now, and neither wants to shoot little bucks, so […]
