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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Mozambique Safari 2013 Part 3 by Tim Herald

Day 13- Paul and I had a good morning. After checking a leopard bait for Frazier, we found a group of about 6 kudu cows with a big bull. I find it odd that all the big bulls we have seen have been with cows, and they have been rutting. Everywhere else I have been, […]

Day 8 -I have been back in Pemba for a few days feeling pretty ill with a nasty spider bite. I haven’t hunted any more, but lots has gone on in camp. Frazier has taken a bushbuck and great old sable with five inches of secondary growth. Frazier’s sable and bushbuck… A set of grandparents […]

Mozambique Safari 2013 by Tim Herald

After our great family trip to SA with Infinito, I hopped over to Mozambique to again hunt with Kambako Safaris in Niassa. I was to hunt lion, buff and PG. On this trip, I also had Greg Schubert and Frazier Jones with me. This is Frazier’s first trip to Africa. I am going to attempt […]

Family Safari with Infinito Safaris-Part 2

Day 7, we drove back from Kruger, but made a stop at Life Form Taxidermy. We had a full tour, and the rest of the group had no idea what all went into taxidermy and between that and some of the huge lifesize mounts, they all were in awe. During that tour, Kristin told us […]

Family Safari with Infinito Safaris by Tim Herald

Charl of Infinito Safaris and I have been planning this hunt for almost 2 years. I wanted to bring my wife and 12 year-old twin boys, Will and Drew, to Africa for a PG hunt, and then when that was finished, I would go t o Mozambique. This was not to be a hard core […]

Kansas Monster Buck by Adam Hays

Kansas Monster Buck by Adam Hays

Kansas and Monster Bucks go hand in hand, that’s why it has been one of my favorite destinations for some time now. With it’s mixture of cedars and cottonwoods that make up what little bit of timber that separates field after field of CRP and prairie grasses, the terrain looks like a giant whitetail could […]
