Be Slow And Persistent For Big Bucks


No Comments

Where and how do you tag a big whitetail buck? By hunting private farms and ranches? Special permit trophy entry units? Midwest farm lands? Canada? Texas? Ohio? Do you hunt from a tree stand or ground blind? Still-hunt or glass-and-stalk? Grunt, rattle? Bait? Snipe from long range? Or just get lucky? Yes. To all of […]

How To Fix Tough Meat


No Comments

If you spend more time hunting for meat than you do for trophy deer, I’m guessing that you may have noticed that young does, in general, tend to make better table fare than old bucks. Depending on your seasons, tags and availability of either sex, you may not want to waste your limited time in […]

A Sling – One Of Your Best Hunting Friends


No Comments

Cowboys didn’t sling rifles, but cowboys rode horses and carried rifles in scabbards. Cowboys didn’t use binoculars or rattling antlers, either. I figured this out (duh) last week while hunting Texas whitetails with a slick, fun, Winchester Model 1873 genuine lever-action cowboy rifle. It was chambered for the famous .44-40 centerfire cartridge that accounted for […]
