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 […]

Scouting Monster Bucks in a Drought by Adam Hays

Adam asked me to post this new summer time scouting article for him while he’s on vacation this week. __________________________ With one of the mildest winters we have had in some time, I was looking forward to the chances of having a tremendous year for antler growth!

Early Season B&C at Sunfish Valley Whitetails

You may recall that I did a post back in the summer about the big bucks that live on the land owned and managed by Sunfish Valley Outfitters in Latham, Ohio. I have to give credit to Tom and Tim from Bighorn Outdoors because they referred me to Sunfish originally. They had been there, seen […]

The intense use by the deer combined with record setting spring rains here in Ohio have dissolved my Trophy Rocks already. I put out new ones […]

Two Huge Whitetails

Here are two huge and unique whitetail bucks. The first one is a giant non-typical from Idaho. Looks like whoever scores that buck will have his work cut out for him. How many brow tines and stickers is that anyway? The second buck was taken last year and has an antler growing out of his […]

In my last post I talked about harvesting does in October. I am writing this from 30,000 feet above North Dakota on my way to far northern British Columbia where I will be moose hunting for the next week or so, and I am reflecting on a 26 hour period from Friday evening about 5:30pm […]

The right time of year…

The right time of year…

Now JT and his Monster OH buck have proved me wrong from the start here, but generally late Sept and early Oct. can be tough times to kill deer. Many times they stay in the woods eating oaks, are hard to pattern, etc. I find that this is a great time to practice management. Today […]

Ohio Monster Buck…it’s mine this time!

Some days are just meant to be. On Sunday September 26, 2010 I was fortunate to harvest a true monster whitetail here in Ohio with my bow.
