Well, just 53 days and counting before Bow Season begins....but who's counting? I sure am!!!!! I haven't been out scouting very much what little I have done, the deer are locked in their summer patterns and are easy to find early mornings and late afternoons.

Let's see some views from your favorite stand locations! Here is one that I have a lot of success from with easy access. Last....  Read More

  • Shark-on!
Took a day off to go surf fishing. We didn't get what we were after (red fish) but, I did get a great fight out of this shark on light tackle with 15 pound test line and a 7 foot medium action rod.

A couple more trips like this and I'll be ready for bow season to start.

Have a great 4th of July and enjoy your summer.

Tagged Out! God was good this year and blessed me with 2 nice Tom's. Both were epic spot and stalks. The Tom's were tight lipped and would hang up everytime. I guess I was hunting educated birds. I'm kind of glad my hunts worked out the way they did because putting a stalk on a wise Tom was an exciting challenge! I know 'Creek' was crawling every inch with me while I was wearing 'Papa....  Read More

Friday Morning I tried to set up on 3 Tom's my cousin and I had at 75 yards on Monday afternoon. The rancher had a dead baby calf in the back of his truck he found killed by Coyotes on Sunday night.

I figured I would set up at the far corner end of the pasture. One side bordered by short pines and the other by mature pines.

I set the Avian 30 yards inside the pasture and tucked....  Read More

  • Still some luck in the Ole' Hat!
My Step-Father as we called him, Papa Bill. Passed away June 9th 2012. I told my mom that I wanted his fishing hat for the fishing memories. I saw his hat hanging in my office before my hunt so I decided to bring it and him along with me for luck.

Early Saturday morning with a crescent moon and one bright star rising in the eastern sky, I let out a couple of yelps. Right off 2 gobblers on....  Read More

This is a video that I shot and edited. Before anyone says anything, I will be the first to say this is not a shot to take unless you are dead confident with your abilities. This is a shot taken and discussed in a few archery circles. This is very educational for beginner archers, because you can see how easy it is to miss this shot. This doe was double lunged and shot through the heart.....  Read More

  • Lucky arrow #6
  • Arrow pushed out but great blood trail!
Not a shot I recommend unless you practice it. I\'ve been practicing this 100 yard shot for 3 years now. Some of you members may have seen my video on the new bow strings I put on my 7 year old Hoyt TrykonXL this year. New strings out of the box with very little practice I hit 4 for 4 on a 3-D target at 100 yards. A little more shooting and tweaking of my right left windage and I was....  Read More

  • Viperx4 with shirt on!!!!
  • Exit Wound Rage 2 blade chisel tip.
Second times a charm....Doe number 3! I sat this bean field the first time a week ago and had a old man on a bicycle ride down the field edge to try to get a closer look at a doe feeding in the beans. He didn't even know I was there, when he stopped 50 feet from me and the doe ran off. I didn't say anything because I know the guy and know he was just trying to enjoy the years he has left.....  Read More

Well today was opening day of gun season here in the southeast and once again I found myself helping get the population under control on this farm. Wildlife officials say that 50 deer need to go. I've been blessed with 7 of them so far and they won't go to waist, that's for sure.

I shot the first one with the bow and on film for a very good friend that is having some serious medical....  Read More

I don't know if you have ever checked out the harvest reports that State Game Officials put out each year but, here is a link:

http://www.ncwildlife.org/Portals/0/Hunting/Documents/Harv_Digest12-ByYear.pdf

I was looking at the Harvest reports for the state which give you total deer harvested by Buck, Button Buck or Doe. It also gives you the other references pages for harvest by....  Read More

Well folks, I bought a new Video camera this past year and have searched the web for a reasonably priced camera tree arm. Wow....talk about 'sky's the limit', so are the prices. For an arm that is actually usable with a climber stand or any tree stand for that matter where the tree is to your back, you would have to spend in up-wards of $300.00.

I found this Gorilla Camera Arm online....  Read More
