Lookin’ to the Fields for Early Whitetails

Early! Early! Early! I can’t wait for opening weekend. I take the first chance I can to get out and hunt whitetails.  I live for the openers; I like to use this time to hunt from a blind or a tree stand on the edge of a field, because one thing it does is allow […]

The Midwest is in for a large cool down. This weekend lows in my area will hit mid to upper 20s. This will be the first hard frost for my area.  Two things I hope it brings;  1. Deer movement & 2. Kills midge fly. The midge fly is the cause of a lot of […]

Okay it’s that time of the year to start putting together a Potential Hitlist of bucks we might like to shoot. Now I did say “potential” because trail cam pictures are great but they can be deceiving. Sometimes I just need to see that buck to know for sure if he is a shooter. Most of […]

Food Plots Part 3 of 3…Clover Mixes aka Green Browse

Clover Clover is considered by many to be the most universal deer food and the reputation is not without merit. I can’t lie to you, it’s my favorite; I use it on every price of land I help manage, some more than others. Clover is easy to establish in most regions of the country and […]

Hunters Don’t Sleep…. Trail Cams

I have had my trail cams out since the last day for turkey season; I know I’m a little overboard but with the cams on the market today why not. Most good ones run on a set of batteries for 9 months to a year, if the settings are right. So far this year I […]
