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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Zimbabwe Hunting Report Part 2

After the elephant hunt, I had planned to hunt Cape buffalo. Our area has some really big bulls, and I still had a full week to find one. The next day about noon, I was driving with Nixon in the Land Cruiser, and he asked me, “Since you killed a big elephant, and have finished […]

Zimbabwe Hunting Report Part 1

I traveled back again to Zimbabwe to hunt elephant with SSG Safaris. I did this hunt unsuccessfully in February of 2012 due to very late rains and crazy hot temps. I knew it would be dry this late in the year, but I didn’t realize it would be over 100 degrees most days. This is […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Iowa Gun Season-Day 2 with Tim Herald

Day 2 in Iowa… Well morning of day 2 couldn’t have been much worse weather wise. It was 50 degrees before daylight and a super heavy fog. We setup on the side of a big pond that deer usually skirt on the other side to go to their bedding area but after about 40 minutes, […]

Iowa Gun Season with Tim Herald

IOWA – First Gun Season Everyone dreams of drawing that Iowa tag, and after a 2 year absence, I drew a first gun season tag. I booked a hunt with Straight Arrow Outfitters in Albia on the advice of my buddy Bill Winke, and I just couldn’t wait. Well, in the days leading up to […]
