point well taken

When we’re laying out this annual DIY issue, it naturally brings to mind memories of some of our own public-land whitetail hunts. No matter how well planned, each such outing brings surprises. Of course, that’s the nature of hunting in general, but especially on public land. To the usual mix of weather and other deer-movement variables we must add the impact of random human influence. Put all those factors together, and every DIY trip is going to be unique. One day last fall, cameraman Matt Young and I were hiking out of an Oklahoma public hunting area after dark. Approaching our truck, we saw it was the only vehicle in the parking lot. No surprise there, as the place we were bowhunting was fairly remote. What happened next literally startled us. As we…

big screen bucks

It’s amazing how a mature whitetail can humble even the most seasoned hunter. There’s no doubt deer outsmart humans far more often than vice versa. Once a buck reaches maturity, he’s survived years of pressure from both hunters and predators, not to mention the never-ending inhospitality of Mother Nature. Considering the onslaught of potential dangers whitetails are forced to endure on a daily basis, it’s really no wonder these wild creatures become so elusive and show such intelligence. If anything is for certain, it’s that the team at North American Whitetail TV presented by Quick Attach has experienced firsthand how hard it can be to consistently kill big bucks in faraway places. Over the years, we’ve made it our mission to film exciting and educational content about hunting free-range whitetails across the continent.…

the mexican connection

The principles of quality deer management are based on strategies developed over almost 100 years, primarily by Texas ranchers. Concepts such as yearling buck protection, supplemental nutrition, proper doe harvest and gene pool maintenance have long been known to private managers in the state, and in recent years they’ve spread across many other whitetail areas. Of course, the history of whitetail management also includes failures. Deer populations in the U.S. have declined by about 19 percent since the dawn of this century, and we now see early signs of declining numbers of quality bucks. There are a host of reasons for the decline, including disease, predation, habitat deterioration, over-harvest and loss of habitat. However, I feel the underlying cause remains a lack of dedicated management, and particularly the lack of an…

When fall approaches and thoughts of monster bucks overtake your consciousness, focusing on mundane daily tasks can seem all but impossible. It’s during this time of year that we begin again to gaze at farm fields as we head home from work in the evenings, and we wait for the fleeting moments when we can sneak away to check our trail cameras or shoot arrows in final preparation for opening day. No matter if you hunt a big private lease in the Midwest, the backside of a heavily pressured public hunting area in the Deep South or somewhere else, you know what I’m talking about. For guys and gals like us, chasing whitetails is a way of life. That’s equally true for folks who try to hunt every day of the season…

red clover ( trifolium pratense)

Although red clover is native to the Old World, it was brought to North America by English colonists so long ago, and has since become so widespread, that many people figure it was here all along. It’s even been named the state flower of Vermont. There aren’t as many acres of Trifolium pratense as there were back in the early 20th century, but in the Eastern U.S. there’s still quite a bit. And it continues to do the job it was brought here to do: put nitrogen and organic matter into the soil while giving livestock plenty of nutritious forage to eat. (The plant is commonly confused with crimson clover, due to the latter’s bloom color, but they’re quite different. Red clover is a rugged perennial, while crimson clover is a…
