    Just watched the most recent Jeff Sturgis video. Love his videos and strategies. But that doesn't mean I 100% agree with him on everything. Several times recently, he has mentioned how much less likely a hunter is to spook deer if always sitting while in a treestand. I have contended for many...

    With everyone's excitement building toward the opener this video is great food for thought IMO. About 15 minutes long. Good luck out there.

    I stumbled across this interview from 2017. Great stuff. Maybe it's been posted before.
  9. Out of state hunts
    Well, after reading some other awesome stories, figured I may as well start a thread to document mine. This isn't an extreme Alaskan or Canada backcountry hunt, but it is far from anything I've ever done before in my life. I'll try and not be too long winded and break apart some of the details...

    I just got back home to southern Michigan from my trip to Chapleau. Some pretty Big bears and a lot of area to hunt. Outfitter was great. Fishing was fun also. Check out my video if you are interested in going. I film the whole trip start to finish and post them on my YouTube page. Thanks!

    As the title says, I'm curious as to what pop up blinds you all are using and the pros/cons to them. I've never had much luck with pop ups and it's been a few years since I've had one. Last one had most of the support rods broken from the wind. I'm hoping to take a bird with my compound this...
  12. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    So I'm using some new equipment this year which has also changed the way I'm packing in and out of the field/woods. This made me curious on how others do it as I've experimented with many different ways over the years. I've mostly hunted the same 60 acres of private land all my life, and even...

    Anyone ever hunt at Independence Ranch, in Waelder, TX.? I am interested in bowhunting for hogs but not sure. Reviews seem good compared to others but prefer to hear it from real hunters.

    Was wonder how ASAT camo looks in a tree stand for early and late season bow hunts, been looking at getting new gear for the upcoming season and it seems like their unless possibilities. Currently using realtree camo, wondering what works best for you. Thanks

    Took me a month, but I finally figured out how 2 get my once in a lifetime bow shot uploaded in high resolution to YouTube. PLEASE WATCH IT IN HI DEF (it looks so much sweeter)

    I an a senior in High School who just started hunting Island lake. I have been over there 6 times and have not seen a deer. There are signs of deer everywhere scrapes, rubs, and tracks. My problem is I don't have enough time to religiously go over there every night. I live in Novi and am looking...

    Curious on what guys prefer for the most quiet and quick way to get up your tree. I like using pegs and sticks. I would like to know if anyone has an effective way to keep your pegs quiet and from clanging against each other when getting them out to put them in the tree. Best ways of...
  18. Whitetail Deer Management
    Just wanted to get some advice from you QDMA gurus. I'll be sitting on a plot of private land with plenty of surrounding state land this fall. I set out a trail camera to get some inventory and, from what I can assess, quite a bit of this herd is fairly young. I've collected pictures of gangly...

    Hey gang! I know there's going to be a thousand different opinions on this topic but figured I'd open up this can of worms anyway! What grunt calls, rattling antlers, scents (attractants/scent-blockers/estrous) does everyone use? Play the wind and sneak in real quiet - but this stuff has to...

    Not a ton of food in this area - lots of nibbling on brows and foraging the bushes. Hoping these bucks grow to at least meet our APRs and the does put on more weight before fall. Plenty of time! One bachelor group of 3. I think these fellas are at least 2-3 years old. Couple of the does...
