    Hey all, I am creating this thread to document my journey back into hunting after an 11 year hiatus. Follow along if you like, or don't... I don't really care either way! I just want a place where I can archive and log the journey as things have changed so much since my last deer season! The...

    Anyone have any ground hunting advice? I'm going to try ground hunting for the first time this year, mostly because I don't like heights. I've read a ton of stuff about making sure you brush yourself in, and I've thought about using camo burlap as a makeshift blind that is light to pack in and...

    Hello all, I'm looking to try my shot at public land this year. I started hunting 2 years ago and I'm hooked. I recognize this is a very newb question but I am hoping to gain a little knowledge. Can someone point me in the right direction to find where public lands are? I live in Loudoun...

    My buddy and I just bought our first pop up blind for spring turkey. We valled in some birds on every stand we made, but no legal gobblers would come into range. I've seen people set up a blind in the middle of a field with some decoys and sometimes the gobblers will come right in. Is the camo...

    Looking at starting to plan an Idaho hunt for the season of 2019/2020. I need info on zones, where to find info on public land, etc. etc. Any advice is more than appreciated. I know this may be a stretch since the last posted thread on the "Idaho" forum is almost a year old. I'll check back...

    I've recently made the move to central West Virginia after years of hunting in Ohio. The terrain (mountains) I plan to hunt are obviously much different than the flat land I've grown accustomed to back home. I'll be hunting mostly public land and still being in school have had no previous...

    I hunt public land in Central FL and I'm sick of it - tired of getting walked in on constantly by other hunters and harassed by anti-hunting whackos (happened again opening day of my Tosohatchee turkey quota). I'm looking into leases for this coming season. Problem is, leases are hard to...

    Hello all, I'm being relocated to the Springfield, MO area for work. I'm currently living in Nebraska, so it will be quite the change. Could anybody share some hunting and non-hunting advice for that area such as bow shops, archery ranges, best affordable steak in town? Does anybody have...

    I am a 20 year old college student from Missouri. I've been wanting to hunt mule deer for awhile now. I would like to do a Public Land Eastern Colorado archery hunt. Although I have done some research on how the tags work, units, etc. There is still a lot I'm unsure about as to how OTC tags work...

    Hello, A group of my buddies and I are planning a public land archery mule deer hunt in South Dakota for 2018. Most of us have never hunted outside of MI and are looking for advice on what public areas to consider. Are there any public lands we'd be able to set up a camp as well? Which hunting...

    I was hunting public on the AL/GA border when I took this doe. She dressed at 77lbs. Below is the trophy shot and video. This is only the third deer I've harvested, the first in many years, and my first archery kill. I'm satisfied, to say the least!

    Alright, to start off I have to admit I am spoiled with private land access. Many long time family friends are big time land owners. That being said 90% of my stands do not move places. I have a LOT of those $30 "big dog" hang on treestands from Menards, as well as a few ladder stands and a good...

    New Bowhunter here and feeling out the etiquette. I live in southern California and hunt the national forests here. Tree stands are there. Nobody in them. Can I use them and give it up if someone shows? How about if the spot is on a nice pinch point game trail and I want to hunt it from...

    My roommate and I are headed to Missouri the end of October, 26th-30th, and wondering if anyone has any suggestions on where to go? I just realized there's a youth rifle season that weekend, so probably going to try archery only zones. Anyone have luck in Reform CA? Any suggestions would be...
