A Lesson in Predator Management

A Lesson in Predator Management

An intrusive buzzing interrupted my deep sleep as the green glow of the alarm clock filled the cabin’s dark bedroom. Mid November not only brings early mornings in Wisconsin, but it’s typically the heart of
the rut which will get any avid bowhunter’s heart pounding.

Doubler From the Double Bull

Doubler From the Double Bull

The crisp morning air was charged with the sounds of spring turkeys.  From the blind’s pitch-black interior, the calls from a dozen longbeards could be heard echoing throughout the canyon.  Sitting in complete darkness, my senses were heightened and my anticipation grew with every amplified gobble. The eerie feeling of sitting alone in the dark […]

Only a seasoned turkey hunter can understand the highs and lows that can come with hunting the finicky, yet sometimes predictable, thunder chicken. Some seasons are over before the sun creeps above the trees on opening morning and others are spent running and gunning to no avail.

Scent elimination is a huge industry for a reason. This 11 point Wisconsin whitetail came within 15 yards of my tree stand from downwind and, thanks to SMOOTCHIES, I was able to make the shot! SMOOTCHIES give a hunter just one more advantage in harvesting that trophy animal.

Shedding the Winter Blues

Shedding the Winter Blues

I have always been one to appreciate all four seasons in Wisconsin. This winter, consisting of sub zero temperatures and record breaking snow fall, seemed to linger forever. Along with the anticipation of warmer temperatures and longer days comes the excitement of being able to go shed hunting. Since all bucks lose their antlers every winter, one would think that finding a few sheds might sound easy, but once the forest and field vegetation start to grow and the critters stop their gnawing, you can think of them as ‘buried’ treasure. More often than not, I’ve walked away from a day’s hunt empty handed. When you finally stumble across one you feel like you’ve struck gold.

Turning Sheds into Art

Turning Sheds into Art

Bowhunting is one of my biggest passions in life so when the season comes to an end there’s always a sense of disappointment. After enjoying the woods all Fall and spending many hours a week in a tree stand, it can be difficult to deal with a harsh winter and what I call “woods withdrawal”. I spend time during the winter months watching hunting videos not only to learn as much as I can about whitetail deer but to also enjoy the scenery.
