Butchering & Processing in Southeast North Carolina
I had family over for my wife's lasagna tonight. She used my Italian seasoned brown ground / venison. My college niece said, 'this is the best lasagna I've ever eaten'. I told her thank you. She said but, aunt Marci made it. I told her yeah but, I killed it. She said, How do you kill lasagna. Thought I was going to pee my pants. I told her it was deer meat and she said it sure is good.
This is....  Read More

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

Ok folks, I know I'm not the only one that was in a tree Saturday morning! Where are those stories and pictures.

I managed to squeak out a doe around 8:30am in the rain. It wasn't pretty she had her head in a bush at 35 yards. The arrow deflected just as it got to her and hit her high in the backbone. I hate when that happens but, no tracking in the rain. I watched her for 40 minutes....  Read More

Twas' the night before bow season and all through the house, everyone was scurrying, even the mouse! The washer was washing the hunting clothes to kill scent and mom was wondering where the money all went. As I nervously replied that it went for some hunting stuff, she turned away without even a huff! She to remembered September last year, when I started bringing home all kinds of deer. Back....  Read More

It is in great sadness that I pass this information. One of our moderates and a very dear friend to many on this site. Jeffrey T. Smith of Kannapolis has lost his short 3 months battle with cancer this morning around 11am.

R.I.P. My dear friend. You fought a great battle. 3 months is hard to understand but I know you are a great Christian man and God must have needed you in Heaven. We....  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
