The Brow Tine Buck by Brandon Carter

The 2012 hunting season was one of the toughest years of hunting Whitetails I had ever seen.  EHD outbreaks across the Midwest during the drought plagued summer had reduced buck numbers significantly.  On top of the reduced numbers, weather conditions were not favorable for daytime movement or rut activity.  With the hunting being as tough […]

Don’t Give Up: Late Season Hunting Can Pay Off If You Are Persistent by Tim Herald

Don’t Give Up: Late Season Hunting Can Pay Off If You Are Persistent by Tim Herald

For many, including myself, it is hard to get motivated to hunt whitetails in the late season, especially if you are in a state that offers archery after the main rifle or muzzleloader seasons. The deer have usually really been pressured, and unless you have cold temps, they move mainly at night. Plus, let’s be […]

Monster Bucks in “The Bow Zone”

My 2013 “Bow Zone Buck” Webster’s definition of accomplishment: Something done, achieved or accomplished successfully. My definition: Surviving the harshest, most brutal conditions that Mother Nature can throw at you in one of the toughest places in the country to harvest a big whitetail, “The Edmonton Bow Zone”. Finally after 7 trips to “the zone”… […]

It’s not over yet by Adam Hays

It’s not over yet by Adam Hays

There’s no other month like November for getting monster bucks up on their feet and moving during the daylight hours! If you’ve been lucky enough to shoot a giant before now, unlike myself, congratulations! If you haven’t don’t fear, there’s a lot of great hunting left and the best couple weeks of the season are […]

Prime Time Gives Mixed Results

Prime Time Gives Mixed Results

The past week or so has been prime time for whitetails throughout the midwest. With below average temperatures in many places and even a little snow, we would think the rut would be wide open and huge deer would be popping out behind every other tree. From the hunting I have been doing with my […]

When your buck tag is filled, you don’t have to quit hunting by Tim Herald

This year I was lucky and took my home state Kentucky buck in early September. I have been hunting a little with my two sons, but there is a 3 week period in late October and early November when crossbow season is closed in KY. This past weekend the weather was wonderful for hunting with […]

Big Nevada Bull

A lot of hard work, 7 hour pack out but it was well worth it. I shot this elk at 8:45am on opening morning. My brother and I were watching a smaller bull further up the canyon when this bull walked out below us. The first second I seen him I knew I was going […]

Merino’s Mule Deer

Idaho opening morning and my son Derrik is looking across the canyon at a group of bucks and they are heading our way. They were at 470 yards when they suddenly stopped and started getting a little nervous. Derrik told me that the first one on the far right was the biggest one and that […]

KY Youth Success

KY Youth Success

If you follow American-Hunter.com, you will remember a mid 180’s deer that my friend Jason Tuttle killed last fall after hunting him for over 30 days in Kentucky. Tuttle actually hunted the buck for 2 years and had trail camera photos of him for 4 years, all on a 100-acre farm. His success came on […]

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 […]

Trey Keyser, age 12 from Prince George, VA harvested this big 8 point buck on youth hunting day, September 28, 2013. He had many trail cam pictures of this buck over the summer.   That same afternoon he went back out with his Dad and harvested a second buck, even larger than the first one. […]

Kinnick’s First Deer!

This is my 4 year old grandson Kinnick. He got his first gun for his 3rd birthday. It was a Cricket 22 rifle. On his fourth birthday, in June, he got a scope mounted on his 22. That was just the inspiration that he needed to begin shooting. He started picking softball size balloons off […]

Missouri Buck

I was lucky enough to be invited to join friends on a 300 acre lease out  in Missouri. In April a buddy and I made the trip from Ohio to do some turkey hunting and to scout for the upcoming deer season. We found a lot of deer sign and quickly located some great spots […]
