Just when you think you’ve seen it all…

I’ve been hunting whitetails for almost 45 years now and I thought I had seen it all. That was until a couple of years ago. There are those out there that seem to push the boundary between creative genius and peer insanity. And while I have to give them an A for effort and an A for ingenuity. I have to give them an F for utter foolishness.
I heard the two hunters coming long before I saw them. In fact, I saw several deer running from the hunters before I even heard the hunters. Although both of these fellows were wearing camouflage, they were hunting with the wind at their backs.
When they approached, I suggested that they might do better if they hunted into the wind instead of with the wind.
"We don’t have to worry about the wind direction," the taller one said, "we are wearing scent controlling underwear and then we sprayed ourselves down with scent shield."
"Very well." was all I could reply.
I guess they didn’t know that most human scent comes from our breath and the sebaceous glands behind our ears.
They went on their way and I looked for another place to hunt.
Good Luck and Good Hunting,

How did he kill that buck? You missed another opportunity.

With more people hunting trophy bucks than you can shake a stick at. You need to stay at the forefront. One of the biggest mistakes hunters make is to hunt the same exact area year after year. Yes, there are locations that can produce a trophy whitetail year and in year out, but they are few and far between.
It’s a matter of numbers only 1 out of 20 bucks will ever reach trophy status. Most areas Just don’t contain enough deer to produce trophies year in and year out. Once the buck pool is drained in one area. It is time to increase and improve our hunting efforts.
If there’s a shortage of bucks in your area, means it is going to be rare to see big bucks.
What this tells me is that I need to double my efforts in scouting and locating new areas for big bucks.
If there is a big buck shortage we can’t miss a beat. How we scout will determine our success. If you want to improve and increase your hunting success, you’ll need to get out in the woods.
It’s that simple.
Good Luck and Good Hunting,

“And Now for Something Completely Different”

“And Now for Something Completely Different”

I’m excited to announce the release of my new book on

Let’s face it: if how-to’s were enough, the walls of every hunter’s home would be virtually covered with deer heads.

The book, “Buck Naked :The Straight Dope on Trophy Whitetails,” goes beneath the surface and takes readers to where no hunting program has gone before, revealing the secrets to consistent success in the field.

Can I ask a favor from y'all?

Help me spread the word about BUCK NAKED!
