Being Caught in the “Rut” of the Rut

Hunting the rut

  by  M Glasgow  THE RUT: HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW. Archery season in Northwestern PA was all but usual this year. The rut came in late, way late. Questions over exerted my mind causing fatigue and disappointment, but I still kept my head lifted high. Why aren’t I seeing any bucks? Where are the signs? Why are those four mature does all by themselves? Why are does coming in to my casual grunt? Ultimately, where are the bucks? The lack of seeing any rut activity was not all to be blamed on Mother Nature. Although she does play an important roll of … Continue reading

Building a Duck Blind on a Budget

An inexpensive way to build a duck blind

Seeing how it’s getting ready to be duck and goose season, I thought I would share my new duck blind with you guys to provide a cost effective way of building a duck blind on a budget. I have built and currently use a few different style blinds from full house blinds on stilts to natural hideouts in grass patches. The limiting factor for alot of people is COST! Lumber is not cheap and if you live in an area where your blinds are vulnerable to rough water all that money and hard work can be swept away by the … Continue reading

More Deer Hunting Tips, Tactics, and Techniques: THE IMPORTANCE OF PREPARATION FOR DEER HUNTING

Preparing for deer hunting is just as important as being there for the hunt. Without these steps, you could be missing out on ample opportunities of harvesting a big deer.

Scent eliminator is an excellent way to cover up your body’s natural odor. Deer have a great sense of smell and can easily detect you especially if the wind is in the right direction. Many different forms of scent eliminating products are readily available for you to purchase. Soap, clothing, and spray are just a few good examples you can find in stores. One free method, which is a tradition of my dad’s and mine, is smoking your suits next to the burn barrel. Just don’t burn anything that can add scents you don’t want to your clothes, and don’t stand to close to the fire to get burnt. I don’t know if this deer hunting tip works or not, but I would like to think so. We have had this tradition ever since I started hunting. It gives us a good chance to go over our hunt the next day and come up with some strategies.  Continue reading

Bow Hunting: The One That Got Away

Bow Hunting: The One That Got Away: Just Getting Big Bucks to Come in is Only Half the Battle    by  Charles & Clint  Big bucks are stubborn, and can sometimes give you a run for your money. “Fred look”, I quietly whispered, “There’s a buck about a hundred yards away, and legal too!”. Fred quickly reached for his bow as the buck stepped back behind some brush. I gave a couple of quick grunts to get the deer’s attention and heading in our direction. It was late in the rut and this buck just would not budge an inch. This story … Continue reading
