unanswered questions

During the off-season, some whitetail topic often comes to the forefront. Here in 2019, much of the talk has centered around an old nemesis: chronic wasting disease.CWD has been on the minds of deer hunters, landowners and biologists for decades. But a series of loosely related events have brought it to the fore again. As all occurred within a short span last winter, they fed off each other to create a buzz even non-hunters found interesting.First came a wave of “zombie deer” reports, as the media found using that sensational term drew big traffic. Clicks are the gauge by which many Internet writers are compensated, so the “zombie” angle was beaten to death. (Or would that be undeath?) Mainstream CWD coverage quickly began to mimic the relentless zombie hordes…

before we know it

This month on NAW TV, Dr. James Kroll continues his informative “Build Your Own Deer Factory” series from Oklahoma. Tune in each week to learn more about such practices as effective timber management, controlled burns and warm-season food plots. It seems like just yesterday the deer woods were gray and cold. Not that many months ago the forest floor was covered with dry leaves that crunched under the hooves of meandering whitetails, and hunters sat still in tree stands, waiting patiently for their chance to let loose arrows or bullets.Now the fields once again are green and the weather fair. For those who don’t hunt deer, this might even be considered the best time of year. But for whitetail fans, the warmth and leisure that typically come with spring…

weird whitetails part 1

Each year, from all over the whitetail’s range I receive interesting photos. I love getting them, as they often provide photographic evidence of something I overlooked documenting when I first observed it. And occasionally they show things even a man who’s been a professional deer biologist for 46 years has never seen.Recently, I converted volumes of older materials to computer files that form an archive of such oddities. In general, they can be divided into two groups: (1) physical aberrations and maladies created either through accidents or disease and (2) those created by man-caused events, ranging from healed wounds of a hideous nature to strange encounters with manmade objects.Some of these photos find their way to me directly at the Institute for White-tailed Deer Management & Research in Texas.…

with great power...

Any load bearing piece of gear that’s under pressure can be dangerous. Hydraulic winches, tow ropes PTO shafts . . . the horror stories about bodily harm as a result of failure or improper use of such contraptions, unfortunately, are endless.Likewise, there’s no shortage of hunting gear that can also be dangerous. Thankfully, manufacturers employ skilled engineers to research and test ways to improve the safety of the equipment we rely on in the field.For whitetail hunters, perhaps the most visual example of “potential energy” is the bow and arrow. Unlike the hidden chemical reaction that occurs when gunpowder ignites and combusts inside a barrel, the purely mechanical action of a bow propelling an arrow occurs right in front of the archer’s eyes.In the simplest of terms, vertical bows…

bill boosts public access

After years of tightened restrictions on public lands, federal agencies now must look for opportunities to expand access for hunters. Providing sportsmen with greater access to federal public lands authorizing the use of volunteer hunters to help control wildlife populations and allowing bowhunters to transport their gear through national parks are among the highlights of the recently passed Senate Bill 47, the John D. Dingell Jr. Conservation, Management & Recreation Act.This bipartisan legislation, which consisted of a group of bills, was passed by the House and Senate and quickly signed into law by Pres. Trump. It went into effect across the U.S. March 12. Numerous sportsmen’s groups have lauded the bill’s passage and enactment.Among its other measures, the Natural Resources Management Act offers sportsmen relief from some onerous rules…
