October in Montana by Tim Herald

October in Montana by Tim Herald

Whenever I get the chance, I love to go out West and hunt whitetails in October. To me, October is a tough time to kill a good buck in the Midwest or my home state of Kentucky, and whitetails in Wyoming and Montana are completely food driven, no matter what time of year you hunt […]

Skull Hooker Product Review by Tim Herald

A Great Alternative for Your Trophies I love taxidermy, but my wife does not share my view on displaying trophies. We do not have mounts all over the house, but I do have quite a few in my office, and in one TV/Family room that is decorated with an African theme. Unless you have a […]

Zimbabwe Hunting Report Part 2

After the elephant hunt, I had planned to hunt Cape buffalo. Our area has some really big bulls, and I still had a full week to find one. The next day about noon, I was driving with Nixon in the Land Cruiser, and he asked me, “Since you killed a big elephant, and have finished […]

Kentucky Whitetail Season…A Short One

I love to hunt early September whitetails. I think it is possibly the best time to kill a good buck, and certainly the best time to kill a certain buck. Deer are still on summer feeding patterns and are at their most patternable. KY’s season was to start on Sept. 7 this year (and that […]
