Shed hunting is an absolute riot, and a great way to beat cabin fever. Not only is it a great excuse to get outside, but it’s a great time to invade bedding areas with little or no consequence while formulating a plan for the next season.
At ScentBlocker, we’re not just hunters, we’re conservationists as well. Here are some ideas that we recommend you try on your property to help your herd make it through winter in good condition.

It was super cold. At least -10 but it didn’t deter Kim Campbell from bundling up and taking a doe…and then a nice buck. Below freezing weather and two whitetails on the ground. Nice.

Hunt long enough and you’ll see it all; aggressive ruts that last the first two weeks of November, and I’ve seen weaker years stretch from late October through December.
Late season hunting doesn’t have to be a brutal, uncomfortable experience if you have the right clothing. Jason Herbert shows you the right clothing to keep you hunting long after others have given up.
Feeling pretty defeated, I got on my knees to relax a bit, planning in my mind the next morning’s hunt when I heard a very loud ‘GRUUUNNNTTT’. The next few seconds are a blur as I looked in the direction of the grunting buck to see Garfield’s tall rack working toward me. He was close.
Jason Herbert is a loyal scent control disciple and Jason knows that, even though deer season is still a month away, his scent control regimen starts now. Here’s what he orders and why he ordered it so early.
Field & Stream and trade publication Arrow Trade Magazine had nothing but great things to say about the FURIOUS 370FRT. At a price a lot lower than it’s competition, certainly one to look at.
“Man… I love elk hunting. I live for it… When you get a big, screaming bull coming at you at 40 yards – one that you called in, it’s the most incredible feeling. My whole body is vibrating. It’s a feeling like no other.”
When creating a food plot I always consider two things. First, am I going to hunt it? And second, if so, how am I going to access it? Also, what wind do I need? This in itself is a entirely different topic, but always consider these questions before selecting a location for your food plot.
I don’t know what I enjoy more, eating the morels after a long day or spending time in the woods with my family and watching how much fun the kids have just finding them. Either way, here are some steadfast rules that I try to stick to when mushroom hunting.
I had been out in the woods since 5:30 am. It was now 11:00 am and I was birdless. Most hunters would have given up long ago. I had a plan and about 11:25 it worked. Three longbeards came into my calls like they had read the script.
Many well meaning hunters make the investment in scent control clothing and gear but do little to protect and preserve it. Often these same hunters contaminate their gear, get winded by an animal and give up on scent control altogether. Here is how you get rid of the problem.
Jason Herbert has the chance to speak to land management legend James Brion. James has made a living out of what Jason considers a hobby- successfully managing hunting properties for over 25 years. The proof is in the quality of the bucks.
A short time later, around 11:25 am, when many turkey hunters would have gone home, my plan had worked. Three long beards approached and responded to my sweet calls like they had read my plan. By 11:30 am, I had one giant Tom slung over my shoulder and was heading back to the truck.

With a bit of fresh blood and hair on the pedicle, I could tell it hadn’t been off for long. I think God wanted me to become a shed hunter because he certainly blessed me with the gift of that shed antler. As soon as I touched it I felt something primal.
With Lyme disease, West Nile Virus and other insect-borne illnesses a major health concern in today’s world, being out-of-doors for camping, picnics, fishing, hunting or hiking can become a nightmare of aggravation with long term affects. Here’s how you can protect yourself and your family.
I often describe ScentBlocker’s fearless leader Scott Shultz as a “Modern Day Fred Bear”. When I call him that- he humbly smiles and reminds me of how blessed he is. But, the nickname is well deserved.
“Whaaaaa....Whaaa.....WHHHAA!” The rabbit-in-distress call echoed through the frozen woods.
Sponsored by: Robinson Outdoors, Tree Spider & ScentBlocker Products “Whaaaaa….Whaaa…..WHHHAA!” The rabbit-in-distress call echoed through the frozen woods. I had no sooner finished my first calling sequence when I heard, “BOOM!… BOOM!…” My hunting buddy Jon was shooting at something. As I turned, I caught, out of the corner of my eye – about 80 yards out – […]
