Book Review: Game Birds–A Celebration of North American Upland Birds

Admittedly, I don’t read many books these days; I simply don’t have the time as I’m too busy writing, myself. So, when I sat down to thumb through Gary Kramer’s latest book, Game Birds: A Celebration of North American Upland Birds, I was shocked when I looked up at the clock, 2 1/2 hours later, […]

Aleutian Goose Hunt Is A Must!

I just came off a great Aleutian goose hunt near Eureka, California. You goose hunters who are looking for an awesome, end of season hunt, this is it. The season runs through March 10 I believe. It’s a special, late season, damage control hunt that takes place on100% private property (by law). Tens of thousands […]

Fall Turkey Hunting With Your Dog

Fall turkey hunting continues to grow in popularity throughout the West. With increased bird numbers, and multiple tags available in some states, opportunities are on the rise. Enter your gun dog. Hunting fall turkeys with the aid of a dog is legal in most states (not allowed in the spring). There are two ways I’ve […]

The Story Behind The Buck!

It’s Blacktail Go Time!

Yesterday, right before dark, I saw one of the nice bucks I’ve been chasing for three years. He wasn’t the big one in the area, but he’s a dandy, 4 1/2 year old buck. I let him walk. Over the past few evenings I’ve seen a few bucks chasing does, just not the big 3×3 […]

DeerNow 10 Day Report

Ten days have passed since we introduced DeerNow, our specialized blacktail attractant, and we’re starting to get reports from the field. Three people in the Willamette Valley, between Albany and Crow, reported DeerNow getting hit by mature bucks on the first night, one within 20 minutes of being set, as evidenced by trail cameras. There […]

DeerNow Blacktail Attractant…Available Now!

For years I’ve been asked what my favorite blacktail feeding attractant is. Until now I’ve had no answer. I’ve seen success with different products in different habitats, but largely found what worked in one spot didn’t always work in another. This past summer I tried a new blend, one I’ve been working on with a […]

Hunting Gear That Makes A Difference

I’m asked a lot about the gear I use while hunting, not only throughout the West, but around the world. While some of the clothes, boots, trail food, guns, bows, bullets and arrows come down to personal preference, others items simply work efficiently. It’s these efficient items that save me time and money. With hunting […]
