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 […]

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 […]

This buck had been on our hit for our Christian county farm list since summer.  We have numerous trail cam pics of him.  He is a main frame 10 with a kicker off his right G3, so we called him GS3.  Since we had trail cam pictures of him in several different locations, I felt […]

October Fun and Management

As I reported both my kids got pretty lucky and killed good bucks the first week of October with their crossbows. Well that let them out on hunting bucks with guns during KY’s youth season. They love to hunt, and in many places in KY, doe harvest is unlimited, so we went out for a […]

Patience Pays off for Will

I find early October a pretty tough time to kill a good whitetail especially on years like this when oaks are dropping everywhere. I generally concentrate the first two weeks of the month taking my boys, letting them shoot does for management, etc. They are 11 now, and neither wants to shoot little bucks, so […]

Moving on to Alaska by Tim Herald

Heartbreak in the deer woods…

We all know deer hunting is a game of ups and downs. I freely admit that I sometimes hate hunting whitetails. After days or weeks of hard hunting with no success, I feel like I hate going out there, but if you give me 1-2 days off (or a week), I’m ready to go again […]

Super Cold Good Time To Harvest Deer

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, […]

What a weekend!

In my last post I talked about harvesting does in October. I am writing this from 30,000 feet above North Dakota on my way to far northern British Columbia where I will be moose hunting for the next week or so, and I am reflecting on a 26 hour period from Friday evening about 5:30pm […]
