I have tags for whitetails and mule deer as well, but my first priority this fall will be archery elk and this past weekend we picked out a location for elk camp.
With Cole's pronghorn down and two birds killed with one stone (his first big game archery kill and a TV show) I had no stress to shoot another pronghorn.
It was Cole's first big game archery hunt and he had prepared well in advance for the big trip.
This time of year I'm in a mad dash to finish my home chores, prepare hunting gear for months of hunting and wrap up my office work. Starting this week I'll be gone nearly four months with only a day or so here and there at home.
I like confidence when I bowhunt and hunting from a ground blind gives me that edge.
Have you checked your food plots lately? Are they not producing like they should or have the deer eaten them down to a nub? Maybe you didn’t have time to put in a spring plot. Now’s the time to think about fall plots, specifically hunting plots.
It's simple for me. The wolves have re-established. The facts prove it and now they are beginning to affect other wild game populations, not to mention impact the economic viability of Western communities.
What does that mean to German boar hunters? They likely will not be able to dine on the Geiger-counter swine for years to come. The government will continue to subsidize the hunters and I suspect the truffle and mushroom hunters will soon be asking for subsidization as well.
I was edgy—and the guys at the NAHC office Were calling me “Nervous Nancy,” which turned my face red every time. I’d never been hunting Out West before; in fact, I’d never even seen a live pronghorn.
Is your truck serviced to get you from home base to your preferred hunting location?
