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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Optics for Monster Bucks

After 33 years of bowhunting I’ve learned a few things in the whitetail woods. Scout more than you hunt, play the wind, the first time in is the best time and quality products can make a difference between success and failure! There are just some pieces of equipment that you should not scrimp on! Quiet […]

Calming Monster Bucks

Beating a mature bucks nose is what its all about! Show me a big whitetail that has survived to be 4, 5 or even 6 years old and I wil show you an animal that has learned to play the wind to his advantage, he has to or he dies, plain and simple. By the […]

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 […]

I just returned from an outstanding mule deer and elk bowhunt in Colorado. I was hunting with Justin Johns and Ben Harris of Rugged Rack Outfitters. I flew out for opening day of archery season which was Saturday August 31. Ben would be my guide for the next 5 days and had already located several […]

Monster Bruins on the Cochrane River

It only takes a minute! That was the statement I kept repeating over and over in my head as I counted down the hours, then the minutes, as my 2013 bear hunt came to a close. I hunted hard all week and now I was down to the wire, sneaking in a last minute hunt […]

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 […]

Monster Bucks in September

As I put the finishing touches on my last fall food plot of the year this evening, I couldn’t help but think about how soon another deer season will be here! The last few nights here in Ohio have been down in the 50’s and it sure feels like fall is fast aproaching. I can’t […]

Missouri Turkey Hunt

I just returned from a quick trip to scout and hunt a new lease out in Missouri. My hunting buddy Matt and I figured we’d head out and do some turkey hunting while scouting the farm for next fall. The opener was April 15th. The first morning we arrived a little later than planned. We […]

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 […]
