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 […]

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 […]

2 for 2 in Colorado

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 […]

Another KY Buck

Another One Down In KY I have to admit my family was riding high after Will took his mature 10-pointer on October 2. He had been so patient, waited almost 3 years since his last buck, and really made quite a difficult shot in low light. I figured my KY deer season couldn’t get any […]

Iowa in November

Filed under Deer Hunting, General

For three years I’ve been looking forward to bowhunting Iowa during the rut. Finally, this year I drew a bow tag and booked my hunt with Paul Fountain of Fountain Outfitters. His past clients outfitter reviews have high ratings at NextHunt.com and his hunts are more like a lease than a guided hunt. This is […]

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 […]

Awesome Wyoming Bowhunt!

In stark contrast to Tim’s NM elk hunt, I just returned from one of the best hunts I’ve ever taken. As reported back in early September in the 2011 staff hunts article, I’ve been planning a trip to Wyoming to chase antelope and elk with my bow. I realize this is not a normal animal […]

Kentucky Bowseason Off and Running

Tim’s back chasing whitetails in his home state with his son Zack. Great stuff, check it out. I haven’t been able to hunt early archery season in some time around my home in Kentucky, but this year was different. We did a lot of trail cam work, set blinds and stands early, and got ready […]

Gear Up for Bowseason with Carbon Express Rebates!

Filed under Gear and Products, General

I am a big fan of Carbon Express arrows, having used them successfully for many years now. They are deadly accurate, tough and affordable, just the combination I ‘m looking for when it comes to buying the quality bowhunting gear I need every fall. Need proof, here’s an example. Couple years ago I smoked this […]

A Time of Preparation

Tim Herald is back at it, getting ready for his first hunt of many he has planned for this fall. He asked me to post a few of his first articles for August because he’s swamped getting ready to leave the country for a safari. Happy to do that. Like Tim, and most of you […]

American-Hunter.com reader, and avid bowhunter Todd Brado provides this great story about his 2010 pursuit of a trophy buck. My 2010 Ohio Whitetail season ended on November 9, 2010 with a beautiful 11 pointer being harvested. The 2010 season was somewhat short but full of trials and tribulations. The season started off with a very […]

Ohio Monster Buck…it’s mine this time!

Filed under Deer Hunting, Gear and Products, General, Monster Bucks

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. It wasn’t pure luck, it was the result of a lot of preseason scouting and an early season plan that came together perfectly.  Doesn’t always work that way, but […]

September 22, 2010… Morning started out with us finding the big herd looking like they were going to leave the property to go bed somewhere else. Doug […]
