learning to embrace the challenge

Back in October, I took my 13-year-old son, Timmy, to Ohio for his first out-of-state whitetail hunt over the Columbus Day weekend. Leaving home in Pennsylvania early Friday morning, we made the six-hour drive and arrived in time to climb aboard our stands for an evening hunt. The friend we hunted with had us set up in the perfect spot overlooking a small clover plot next to a standing soybean field. Beyond the beans was a thick, hardwood bottom known as a prime bedding area. Trail-camera footage indicated the location was a popular first stop on the nightly feeding forays of the deer that bedded in that bottom. Sure enough, it didn’t take long before a number of does, fawns and small bucks emerged from the woods and started contentedly feeding. Then, it…

From the Editor Back on Oct. 11, I captured the crazy-looking buck below on one of my trail cameras in Pennsylvania. Upon further examination of the images, it appears the buck’s deformed antler on its right side is the result of an injury to the buck’s left rear leg. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the hoof and bottom portion of the left rear leg appear to be missing, leaving the buck to hobble on a stump. Interestingly, this phenomenon of a buck having a deformed antler on the side opposite an injury is common. Biologists refer to it as the “contralateral effect.” I found this buck interesting for several reasons. First and foremost, obviously, is the injury. I can’t help but wonder what happened to cause the buck to lose…

eliminate face-to-arrow contact

In archery, it is sometimes hard for people to make improvements because they are looking for a major change. They are looking for something that is going to turn them into a precision killing or winning machine overnight. In reality, that just doesn’t happen. You will make big strides in the beginning, but eventually, your changes will slow, and you will plateau, so to speak. This is when most people stop, as they think this is their best. I would say this is where about 90 percent of bowhunters and archers are at this moment.This is when you have to really start breaking each facet of the game into tiny pieces and improve on each of them. Start eliminating the tiny mistakes that most people overlook. That is why I am writing…

age discrimination

As a whitetail manager, I practice ageism. (It’s a real word; look it up!) Habitat quality aside, when it comes to managing whitetail bucks for larger antlers, the number of birthdays a buck celebrates is the most important factor. Remember, dead deer don’t grow! If harvesting any legal buck, regardless of antler size, is your goal (be honest with yourself), the rest of this column is not for you. However, having worked with hunters for the last two decades, I know it is easier to kill a 160-inch, 5½-year-old buck on public land than it is to find a popular hunting magazine with a yearling buck on its cover! Let’s face it; we all want big bucks, and since they usually get bigger with age, you need to start consciously improving…

making a clean getaway

I get a lot of questions about deer hunting on my website. In fact, I have answered 16,000 of them in the past 12 years. Yes, you read that right. So, don’t try to find the site and send me a question; I am burned out! But, through it all, I have gotten a pretty good idea of what bowhunters want to know. One of the most common questions I get (other than, “Where should I sit tomorrow?”) is “How do I get down and away from an evening stand without spooking deer?” This is especially relevant when hunting near a feeding area. You have a few options. You can climb down and spook the deer, you can wait some undetermined amount of time hoping they’ll drift off, you can try…
