the learning never stops

NO MATTER YOUR LEVEL OF HUNTING experience, there are two undeniable truths: Someone out there has more experience than you and, regardless of your experience level, there is always something to learn. How we learn has changed dramatically. Back in the day, we had magazine articles, word of mouth, and our own mistakes to teach us. Magazines still offer a treasure trove of hunting knowledge, but these days we also carry the knowledge of mankind in our pockets — so long as our smartphones have access to the internet. In the past couple of decades, outdoor television has become another great resource from which to glean hunting knowledge. However, that only happens if your mind is open to learning. Even if you feel you have more hunting experience than the hunter you’re…

Letters From Readers OCTOBER ISSUE IS INSPIRING & BINDING Dear Bowhunter , I have read every issue of Bowhunter Magazine cover to cover since the very first one was published in 1971. I have never honestly felt the need to write to you until I just finished reading Randy Ulmer’s article, “Bowhunting: Passion, Obsession Or Addiction?” in your October 2016 issue. What a beautiful piece of writing genius! Randy has told the story of an aging bowhunter in such a way that actually brought a tear to my eye. I could relate to Randy’s thoughts as I am entering my 51 year of hunting with a bow and arrow, and I often find myself wondering why I love this sport so much. I believe Randy explained it superbly. The actual physical aspect seems…

keys to concealment

My first camo was a solid-colored sweatshirt, on which I drew shapes with a permanent marker. Back then, personal computers didn’t exist and cameras used film. We’ve come a long way since then, and in addition to making our lives much easier, advancements in computers, digital photography, and graphics are also being used to make being invisible in the woods much easier. “At Mossy Oak, we make our living by bringing you the most effective camouflage patterns ever made,” says Ben Maki, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. Their patterns are developed through extensive in-field design and testing, and then created using the latest graphics technology. A prime example is Break-Up Infinity, which Maki describes as a quantum leap in pattern development. First, Mossy Oak selected elements like leaves, limbs, acorns…

Decorated in Mossy OakBreak-Up Country, the TenPoint Turbo GT w/ACUdraw 50 crossbow ($899) is lighter, faster, and shorter than its very popular predecessors. How light and fast you ask? How does 6.5 lbs. and capable of speeds up to 360 fps grab you? That’s pretty impressive to say the least! The adjustable Fusion 5™ stock and super-compact 13.5" XLT bow assembly combine to give you an ultra-accurate crossbow that’s easy to handle and highly maneuverable, which makes it a good choice for both treestand and ground-blind hunters. Other highlights worth noting include a 12.6" power stroke, 175-lb. draw weight, and the ACUdraw 50 cocking mechanism, which is integrated into the Turbo GT ’s stock and neatly stores the ropes inside the unit’s housing.

my favorite hunt

“YOU GUYS ARE CRAZY,” bush pilot Van Hartley growled as Roger Iveson and I unloaded the last of our gear and then started doing cartwheels in the mud — as best as two guys in raingear and chest waders can in a driving rain and six inches of mud. But we couldn’t help ourselves. We were overjoyed. We’d been on the river for two weeks, and had each killed a caribou. Van had met us at a predetermined point nearly 100 miles downstream to pick up the caribou. After we’d loaded the meat into the plane and climbed in, Van said, “What do you guys want to do now? Head back to town?” Even though rain had fallen hard for 10 days straight, the river had risen three feet, and all of…

bow balance and quivers

I’M A STICKLER for archery detail, and one area I’ve spent a great deal of time in is analyzing the effects of a poorly balanced hunting bow. Like nearly all bowhunters, I began my hunting career with a quiver fastened to my bow. Fortunately, I was led to a good model from the get-go. When I say good, I mean a quiver that was meant to stay fixed to the bow while shooting, and not a quick-removal model. Quick-detach quivers are outstanding for treestand and ground-blind hunting, as they are designed to be detached once the hunter is in his perch or ground hide, although many new models are absolutely solid and engineered to stay fastened to the bow while shooting without rattling, or causing excessive noise. But back in the…
