    In November, hunters should spend more time in the stand

    November means one thing to most bowhunters: time to hunt whitetails.

Most bowhunters cut their teeth on whitetails, and there is no time better and more fun to hunt them than during the rut.

    Become a decoy doc

    We all know that guy — the one who seems to find new ways to destroy any duck or goose decoy in his midst. He leaves decoys in the back of his pick-up until July 4 or so — including the ones he borrowed from you two years ago and never returned — and in an unceremonious act of glory, tosses them behind the garage so they can be dealt with later.
