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 […]

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”… […]

If you haven’t don’t fear, there’s a lot of great hunting left and the best couple weeks of the season are […]

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!

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 […]

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 […]

Rich’s Iowa Bruiser

Rich’s Iowa Bruiser

Tall Brows was a 5.5 year old buck that I named when he was a 3.5 year old because he had really long brow tines.  I passed him numerous times that year. He was around 140″ as a 3.5 year old 8 point and it was obvious he had lots of potential.  As a 4.5 […]
