a place for public

If we look closely at a map of North America’s whitetail range, we find it dotted with lands open to public hunting. They come in all shapes and sizes, from 6-million-acre Adirondack Park in upstate New York to Nebraska wildlife management areas of under 100 acres. All they really have in common is that they hold whitetails a licensed hunter can legally pursue. And they’re the focus of this, our annual DIY issue. In the first half of the 20th century, with the herd all but wiped out by overhunting and habitat loss, remote public forests were attractive places in which to focus restoration efforts. Deer from wherever were turned loose in these areas, then given years of protection from hunting before seasons were reopened. With so few deer then on private…

small properties, big potential

As whitetail hunters, we’re blessed to pursue a species that ranges across most of our continent. For those of us here at North American Whitetail TV presented by Quick Attach, recording deer hunts across the whitetail’s range is rewarding not only because it presents diverse challenges, but also because it connects us with others who share the same level of passion for the game animal we love. Our goal is to produce entertaining and educational content that appeals to all deer hunters, regardless of where or how they prefer to hunt. We want our fans to tag along as we pursue trophy bucks in all types of habitat and terrain, ranging from old Mexico to Canada’s great northern woods. Over the years, we’ve hunted nearly every state or province deer inhabit,…

another sunday option

Adding days to deer season typically requires moving up the opener, moving back the closing date or both But in a few places theres another op tion: allowing Sunday hunting. In a move largely aimed at increas ing tourism, West Virginia has legalized Sunday hunting on public lands, thus completing a process that began with allowing it on private lands last year. The move resulted from increased cooperation among several groups who for decades hadn’t seen eye to eye on the issue While there had been pushes for elimination of the Sunday ban at several points in the past, only after the National Shooting Sports Founda tion and West Virginia Department of Natural Resources began advocating for it did the tide turn. The DNR hopes this expansion will increase nonresident hunting effort. “It’s part…

cold start

The title of this column has nothing to do with hunting deer in cold weather. Rather, it’s about going to places you’ve never been, quickly developing a hunting plan and then completing the task by harvesting a mature buck. All of which is anything but simple. More hunters than ever are taking the chance on new hunting areas. It’s the new frontier in deer hunting, in my opinion. Of course, it’s our philosophy at North American Whitetail , both in print and on TV, to bring you hunting experiences from many geographic regions. In so doing, we commonly find ourselves scouting and hunting in a compressed time period, just as you might on a DIY hunt to a new area. Early in the history of NAW , I wrote about our research…

going deep

“It’s always farther than it looks. It’s always taller than it looks. And it’s always harder than it looks.” That saying is known as “the three rules of mountaineering,” and each part was included for a reason. Climbing a mountain is always a chore, whether it looks all that tough at the start or not. It’s often that way with remote public deer lands, too. From the comfort of our recliners, we can gaze at aerial photos and convince ourselves it won’t be that tough to reach some spot far from the road. But if you’ve ever tried to turn such an idea into action, you might have realized in short order that you were wrong. There’s a reason nobody else hunts back there, and it’s not necessarily because everyone else has…
