    Hello, I have read that you should always hang deer while in rigor mortis and wait for the muscles to relax before butchering for more tender meat. I understand the concept behind that idea. My question is: can you shoot a deer and butcher it BEFORE rigor mortis takes place for equally as...

    Just wanted to share my first whitetail taken today: My father and I sat in a ground blind, watching a small 6-point and doe circle each other for 30 minutes before we heard a larger 11-point buck come to investigate. After 45 minutes of the two bucks circling each other, the larger buck chased...

    I know there are a lot of youtube comparison videos out there but I'm wondering if anyone has real world experience with any of the more cost friendly cell network trail cams and could make a recommendation on a reliable trail cam for someone just getting their first few trail cams.

    This may be discouraged in the forum but I know a couple of people have done it before. Need ideas on a rough score for this buck on trail cam. Don’t want to shoot him if he doesn’t have a chance at 125”. 10 points. Any input is helpful.

    Hi all, I am going on my first bow hunt this year up in unit 7 for deer. I also drew unit 7 for rifle in october/november. As you native Arizonans know, the landscapes here are incredibly diverse. I have hunted the rocky sky mountains of southern AZ in the desert for mulies, but I have no...

    So, we still have a few weeks here in Alabama. But I know most whitetail seasons are over. Post pics of your target buck who survived. Maybe you’ll find his sheds!?!?
  11. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    This year has brought many trials for all of us. Whether it be a loss of a job, loss of a loved one, or just the stress of working in our current culture, we all have encountered a down moment in this year. For me, I am a High School Math teacher, and coach who has dealt with the crazy protocols...

    I will be flying back to Kansas at the end of this week to try and seal the deal (whitetail). Generally I have the meat processed there, freeze it solid and then check it at the airport. Since this will be a much shorter trip than usual, I won’t have time to have it processed & frozen before...

    Today I saw the barometric pressure at 102 and just had to sit today. First doe is a small one, came out behind me broadside at 25 yards, double lungs. I'm next to the dead doe, Next thing I know I hear walking behind me. I slowly turn to find a button buck staring at me head on. He was only...

    I've never noticed much of a difference in deer movement based on moon phase but I've also never heard it explained the way it is here. If this has been brought up and beaten to death I'll remove it but this seems like a new spin on it from what I've read on the subject. Moon Guide Also never...
  16. Traditional Archery
    I usually use 425 grain (total) on my scorpyd crossbow, but that goes 460fps so I don't think that will apply with my bare-bow (duh). I prefer to use my 100gr 1 1/2" blade diameter NAP spitfire mechanicals (with 25gr collars) as I've never once had issues with penetration or blade deployment...

    I thought i was gonna have a good opening day of deer season on my new lease in Florida. I have been getting deer and turkey's everyday like clock work.

    I have a primary place to hunt where I am from but I own 10 acres left from my Grandfather that I am wanting to plant a food plot on this year.
