SCOUTING FOR DEER 2013 Scouting For Deer 2013 is sponsored by Access Tonneau Covers, ThermaCELL, AZ E-Z Fletch and Grim Reaper Broadheads. In my, quite possibly, skewed take on things; the time to start scouting for deer for the next season is the morning after the prior season ends. You might be thinking that’s kinda early; […]
Wade Nolan discusses the whys and wherefores of deer antlers and the shedding process. You will know more after this article than you thought you knew before and knowledge is strength.
What do you do with a bow used for exhibition shooting when it retired from the stage? Frank gives a few away to people who are truly special.
Bowhunters are the most active of all hunters, spending 4 to 5 times as many days afield as firearm hunters. We all prefer to stay dry, Nolan tells you how.
I entered the ThermaCELL contest for November and was one of the daily winners. They came last week, just in time for some early morning, below freezing testing. I’ll tell you what happened and them share more about them. The number one question is, of course, do they keep your feet warm? And number two […]
How about putting the pieces together of one of the Bowhunting.net photos of Tripple Kicker, Black Face and Freak 2?
Deer parts were moving in those trees and that white rack behind the doe was headed in my direction.
Our 6-point worked the overhanging limbs, mouthing the branch and yanking and pulling it.
I noticed a buck standing still about 60 yards away. He looked around for a couple of minutes.
I heard something and looked up. A nice buck, a long tuned 8-point was on the hill, wrecking the scrape.
Hang out with me at a Core Scrape as my SpyPoint camera captures the activity.
After seeing the bomber buck in the Secret Water area I, of course, returned.
I glanced back to see what was up with my two bucks. Woops…
The bucks are already on the lookout for receptive does. Here’s a nice 8-point making the rounds.
Just out of the deer woods. Here are the highlights of this morning’s pictures.
Our annual Scrape Watch is kicking off. Which opens scrapes, bucks or does? Do bucks work scrapes after they loose their velvet, or before?
The first bear hunt my bow and I went on was with Ben Pinkham in Maine, back in 1978. I shot a bear on that trip as well as on my return trips.
Comments about the gear I used to get to Maine and to bowhunt there.
When the buck walked over the top of the hill and out of the trees in front of me I realized I had not seen him before.
I wedged some sapling sized limbs in the trees around the blind. I wanted some audible warning if a bear came up to the blind again.
The footsteps got closer and then it pawed several time at the right wall of the blind. I saw the indentation of a bear’s foot as it pawed the wall.
At 1:00 we went to a new area and followed the trail in. The bait was creamed and Ben refreshened it.
Ben and I quietly followed a trail it to the stand site. The bait was decimated and Ben refreshened it with his secret Bear bringing concoction.
Today the Maine black bear bowhunt begins. Look for updates right here.
Qoops, a buck slipped in from the right to drink some water at the H2O secret place, and here come 2 more bucks.
This morning was a water drinking one for these bucks. Also, up the hill we can see a buck works the lower limbs of a tree.
I’m off to Maine to bowhunt with the outfitter who took me on my first black bear bowhunt. Non other than Ben Pinkham.
At first daylight an 8-point comes into view. Seconds later a 9-point come in from the left. They weren’t there long but I got 4 cool pictures.

A couple of days ago I picked up the SpyPoint game camera at the H2O area. I had bought a new SD disk that was cheaper than the SanDisks I usually […]
Every once and awhile when you’re taking deer pictures you get lucky and these pictures came from being in the right place, at the right time and being lucky.
