we celebrate it all

In each of the past few years, the theme of our Dec.-Jan. issue has been “celebrating the season.” To that end, we fill it mainly with success stories of hunters who’ve tagged record-book bucks, most of them within the past year or so. Such trophies are well worth celebrating, as they’re elite examples of the species. But as many of us have concluded after decades in the deer woods, a hunter can fully celebrate the season without having any reason to set foot in a taxidermy shop or even a deer cooler. Because the true heart of the season, and of hunters, lies elsewhere. The start of the celebration doesn’t even wait for fall. It begins months before, in dreams dreamt far from the woods. Long before the season, we look forward…

whitetail stress test

Years ago, Hungarian physician and scientist Dr. Hans Selye noticed a correlation between certain human diseases and a common set of symptoms. Many of his patients were suffering from what he called “simply not feeling good.” Their condition had three phases: (1) initial “alarm”; (2) resistance; and (3) exhaustion and death. Dr. Selye called these phenomena stress . Suspecting an endocrinological origin, the doctor injected mice and rats with various extracts of glands and organs. In so doing, he identified what he considered a new hormone that allowed animals and humans to cope with physical and psychological trauma. Other researchers later identified cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, as the agent involved. This discovery produced excitement that a “wonder drug” had been found. Give a person suffering from poison ivy…

heat of the moment

It couldn’t happen to you. No way. You’ve owned a muzzle-loader for years and have shot quite a few deer with it. Safe shooting long ago became a habit. All that makes you just the person I want to talk to. In the same way many tree stand accidents involve people who’d never previously come close to falling, so it is with gun accidents. Whether on the range or in the woods, your first mistake could be your last. Two accidents that victimized dear friends last year illustrate how abruptly things can go wrong, even for hunters who have spent decades handling and using muzzleloaders with no problem. Coincidentally, while these guys weren’t hunting together, both mishaps occurred during the Kansas muzzle-loader season. One of these life-changing moments took place on the shooting range.…

minnesota adds acres

Even in the sprawling woods of northern Minnesota theres not an oversupply of public hunting land So Minnesota Deer Hunters Association’s recent decision to donate 1,599 additional acres for public hunting has been viewed as a positive development. Comprising an array of small tracts formerly owned by Potlatch Corp., this land is scattered across five districts of huge St Louis County. MDHA had purchased the tracts from the timber company on the basis of their suitabil ity for whitetails and public hunting opportunity. Potlach recently has been selling off its holdings, and MDHA saw in this an opportunity to increase pub lic hunting access in the region. At 6,860 square miles, St. Louis is the nation’s largest county east of the Mississippi River. Most of the human population of 200,000 is in…
