Looking for advice on hunting over bean fields. I have hunted over soybeans with success many times. The landowner has wheat standing right now and will harvest within the week and plant late beans. Are these late beans expected to help me in the late season? With being planted late they will no doubt be standing late. The only mast crops (acorns) will be in the thick cutover I have not been....

My dad started turkey hunting just last year and fell head over heels in love with it! This year he spent lots of time in a blind working on his calling and trying out decoys. The season has been tough, but he stuck it out and it paid off. Early afternoon one day he had taken his attention off of the decoy spread and when he looked back up there were 3 nice gobblers huddled around his foam jake.... Read More
Took one of my favorite hunting buddies, my little brother, hunting on opening day of turkey season. Had a great hunt. Please keep in mind that he was just being a teenage boy and totally kidding when he made the comments following the shot. I'm so proud of him. He loves to eat what he harvests. It's hard to even find an adult hunter that responsible these days. James took a great gobbler for.... Read More
I got back my shoulder mount of my muzzleloader buck-of-a-lifetime last week. I am more than satisfied! A special thanks to Wayne Stanley of Holt Lake Wildlife for a quick turnaround and incredible artwork! I couldn't be happier.
This 'book' is worth reading. It is the definition of a television-worthy hunt. As a young man, my dad was a die-hard deer hunter that loved running dogs. I have become equally passionate about turkey hunting. Now, my dad says that deer hunting doesn't hold a candle to turkey hunting.
We went out to a place we rarely hunt and sat in the fog of the field before daylight, eating corned-beef.... Read More
In case you doubted because you haven't seen them, coyote are everywhere now. Even in the suburbs. I was deer hunting 1 morning before work and this female critter was following the track of a grey fox that passed through 5 min. prior to my seeing her. I whistled to stop her before she entered a hedgerow 220 yards away and when she turned to chase again, put 1 in the noggin. The dog fell less.... Read More
My buddy and I drew permits to hunt at J. Morgan Futch waterfowl impoundment this year. As usual, the weather was bluebird-beautiful-terrible for duck hunting. But we both also drew swan permits and boy, were we glad we applied. Taking down these 2 giant birds was worth the trip. They were the only thing we got to shoot at that day. A flock of 4 were heading to join another flock and we timed.... Read More
I desperately wanted to film my 14 year old brother's 1st turkey kill. We had a great youth day hunt the previous year that would have made good video even though James missed the gobbler. My dad and brother gave me some Eyecam glasses as a gift before the following youth day. My dad was new to turkey hunting but picked out a stumphole for us to sit in the morning of youth day. We roosted this.... Read More
On the rainy opening day of muzzle-loader season, I looked over my shoulder through the blind window just in time to catch this buck bounding out of the end of the tobacco (which normally would have been picked) row about 85 yards from me. He looked back at me as if he knew I was there. He had gotten downwind of me on his way through the tobacco, headed toward a hedgerow separating the field.... Read More
