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”… […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

After picking up one of the biggest sheds I have ever found back in March, I had high hopes for my 2012 Illinois season. I knew this animal could be a world class 8 point if he survived, so I couldn’t wait to start running my trail cameras in the summer, in hopes of locating […]

Just wanted to share my father in law’s first buck with everyone. Today we opted for a blind and a crossbow and it worked out perfectly. We got into the blind a little before 3:00PM and at 3:30PM this buck followed a doe to 10 yards in front of us, allowing Tom to place a […]

It’s Game Time for Whitetails by Tim Herald

It’s Game Time for Whitetails Many states open their whitetail seasons in early September, so it is time to get serious about preparation. We should all be out shooting our bows every day, and I highly suggest shooting out to at least 20 yards farther than you actually would ever shoot in the field. Believe […]

Kansas 2011 Even though it’s a tough time to hunt, the “October Lull” has been very good to me this year! In my last column I talked about a couple great bucks I was chasing in Kansas, and even though they are both still walking, I managed to take a great buck before I left […]

Solitude Ranch Buck 2011 My season started off in the Edmonton Bow Zone this year, unsuccessfully I might add, but I did have my opportunity! The week started off slow, showing up a week ahead of the season opener I thought I would have time to locate some deer worth hunting, not so.  The weather […]

There’s a special time coming, a time when conditions are perfect for harvesting a giant whitetail buck, I call it “Red October”.

Filed under Deer Hunting, General

Every summer I try to find the biggest buck I can chase around during season. Many of you do the same. Then, if you’re like me you try to set a goal of a specific buck or maybe one of a certain size range. This is fun stuff to debate with your buddies, but can […]

Filed under Deer Hunting, General, Monster Bucks

For the majority of his life, a mature whitetail buck lives simply to survive. Since the day he was born, he’s taught the most basic survival instincts from his mother, but over the years he develops his keen senses, honing them constantly as they become the weapons that guard his very life. As the seasons […]

Much of the country has been hit by a severe cold spell as of late, and this is a great time to get that trophy that has eluded you, or fill the freezer. For the most part the rut is over in most of the country, and with bitter temps and in many locations, snow, […]
