How to fish TINY streams
During the actual encounter I did a good job of not focusing on the rack and didn't get too nervous.  Later, when I walked up on the buck I couldn't belive what I'd done.  My first bow buck was definitely worth the wait.

April 16, 2014

The 2000 bow season opened as it usually did for me, with our annual trip to Michigan’s upper peninsula. Our bow camp consists of nearly 20 people and is always a good time regardless of how the hunting goes. The weather always seems to cooperate and the hunting is usually pretty good. The 2000 trip [...]

Whitetail Weekly, Trail Cameras for Early Season Success

February 14, 2014

If you asked most hunters when they felt as though they had the best chance of harvesting a buck many would choose the pre-rut and rut phases of the season, and with good reason.  We all know that at any moment a hot doe can pass through, stir up the woods and bring the bucks [...]

When the phone rang and my father in-law asked if I could be at his house around 6:30am the following morning I said yes figuring he may need help with a project of some sort.  I was surprised to hear him explain that he had gotten access hunt a spot near home and was wondering [...]

Whitetail Weekly, December Bow Hunting

December 9, 2013

As we turn the calendar to December it is hard for me to believe that we’ve already put 2/3rd’s of the Michigan deer season in the books.  In my mind I can still remember my first hunt of the season with vivid detail as if it was yesterday but, in reality, it was actually 60+ [...]

Whitetail Weekly, The Comfort Zone

November 19, 2013

While it was a long journey marked by determination, committment, hard work, sweat and even a bit of blood the end result made it all very worthwhile.

October 23, 2013

As the buck my 3 year old son had nicknamed “Puppa” sprinted twenty yards into the thicket I hoped my shot had been as true as it appeared when I let it go.  Within a second or two I heard the unmistakable sound of a deer hitting the ground and I knew we had finally accomplished [...]

Do You Have Any Local Mature Bucks to Bowhunt?

October 10, 2013

There is so much discussion concerning exactly when to be in the woods…WHEN is the pre-rut, rut, etc. For me personally, I only hunt cold fronts; meaning that I completely disregard the moon as well as avoid any certain calendar day of the month…for example, “I always have to be in the woods on 11/5, [...]
